…..and now, it is with great regret that I watch the repeated version of the season-ender of the HBO series, Looking.
I’ve come to love this weekly half-hour series that features masculine gay men who are friends living in San Francisco. The show greatly reminds me of Armistead Maupin’s novels (and early 1990’s TV mini-series) Tales of the City and Showtime’s [U.S. version] of Queer as Folk. Actually, Looking – in my opinion, is more like the former than the latter. And before you ask readers; yes… I do have my favorite characters in the show but I’d rather not mention them.
Oh, ok, ok. Fuck it; I’ll tell!
I’m feeling the vibe of Richie (yes!); I like Dom (who is very handsome for that character’s age of 40); and definitely feeling Kevin (who gets a double yes from me). I think Lynn and I are in the same age group so I can certainly relate to that character’s kool, laid-back demeanor a great deal.
I don’t know when – or if the series Looking will be back so for now I’ll simply say,
See you guys later…to the show’s characters:
– Patrick (Jonathan Groff)
– Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez)
– Dom (Murray Bartlett)
– Richie (Raúl Castillo)
– Kevin (Russell Tovey)
– Lynn (Scott Bakula)
– Frank (O.T. Fagbenle)
I must note that I think Scott Bakula was/is a great add to the show; but then I’m bias since I’ve always been a long-time fan of his work.
I sure hope to see each of these guys next season – which I hope will come soon!
And now this memorable scene between Looking’s Patrick and Richie:
