Looking Season 1: The first season of the wildly popular HBO series has earned comparisons to the classic show “Queer as Folk” for its candid portrayal of contemporary gay life. This terrific show (from Weekend director Andrew Haigh) co-stars Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alverez and Murray Bartlett as a group of gay friends navigating life and love in the gay Mecca of San Francisco. Unlike any show out there, Looking focuses on current gay life in the Bay Area and on themes that everyone, gay and straight, can relate to: falling in love, finding professional fulfillment, forging an identity in a complicated world, searching for happiness.
Looking Season 2: In the second season, Looking continues to offer up the unfiltered experiences of three close friends – Patrick, Agustín and Dom – living, and loving, in modern-day San Francisco. Patrick (Jonathan Groff) finds himself getting what he thinks he wants only to realize it’s not actually what he needs. He and his boss Kevin (Russell Tovey), begin a messy affair, while Patrick also tries to figure out if he and Richie (Raúl Castillo) can still be friends. Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez), floundering after his breakup at the end of last season, decides to leave his art aspirations behind while striking up a friendship with a charming “bear” named Eddie (guest star Daniel Franzese). Dom (Murray Bartlett) continues his dream to open a restaurant, but faces many ups and downs in securing financing – and in his relationship with Lynn (guest star Scott Bakula). With naturalism and humor, Looking continues to explore the search for happiness and intimacy in an age of unparalleled choices – and rights – for gay men, with the progressive, sexually open culture of San Francisco serving as a backdrop for the trio’s lives.
Looking: The Movie: The final instalment, the movie wraps up the story of three close friends living in San Francisco who explore the options available to a new generation of gay men seeking fulfillment in love and life.
