Good job HBO!
25 January 2014 | by mario-kingfireSee all my reviews

Even though many say that this show isn't good, i must disagree. For the first time I'm able to see a show that is presenting the normal life of the gay people without many erotic scenes (I mean if you are looking for porn, then go watch porn..). So I think that this show is even better than QaF because it is much lighter, the characters are much more real (I mean Brian.. really? -.-)and grounded, also they are not feminine and finally, Looking is a show that presents us in a not stereotypical manner. I loved the thing that i didn't notice how the time flied while i watched the show, and at the end i felt like aw.. it ended.. :(. So I still can't understand why is there that much hate for this show. I have been looking for a show with gay main characters for a while now and i didn't like any of them as much as i liked the first episode of this show. Everything about this show is satisfying: The acting is very well, the plot is quite good (for a pilot at least), the characters are pretty likable, they are not like extremely hot nor ugly but quite normal looking and it makes you to connect with them so easily. I will definitely continue to watch this show and I sure hope that it will last long.
