Interesting - But a little like cotton candy
8 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

While "Looking" does attempt to address some of the many situations of the average gay, it falls a little short on the reality. A bit fluffy and with so many stereotypes in the line up of characters, it comes across as a bit too Hollywood. I suppose that this is necessary in order to catch the attentions of the "Non gay" audience… after all most of the straight people out there who turn on the t.v. to watch this series on a regular basis, must have quite a bit of curiosity about us. It's almost like a bad accident: You simply can't turn away, you have to look just one more time and see what's going on. Well, "Looking" is much the same way. I remember when watching "Brokeback Mountain" for the first time. I was more interested in the audience's reaction to the first deep mouth to mouth kiss and also when the belt came off and the action started in the tent. The audience gasped and then went silent. I watched as the people in the theater began to squirm in their seats and turn away - it was uncomfortable for them. The little whispers in the theater were of disgust and revulsion. Oh well… life goes on and this scene gave a hint of it - like it or not! This series has some really great potential, if the producers and writers decide to get down to some serious creativity. I hope that by the time the story gets started, the public can see that we gay people have a lot more in common with the straights than simply "Looking!" We are real people who live our lives in a heterosexual world all the while fitting into society in our own way. I'm going to continue following this story just because there is so little on the tele. anymore to keep a person from falling asleep with the remote. Hopefully, there will be some really memorable moments before the series ends and it will provide some insight for the curious out there in t.v. land. I'm glad I live in the 21st century… we have come a long way and it's nice to see something gay on t.v.
