A flip look at a topic that some people think you should only approach seriously...
29 January 2014 | by Howlin WolfSee all my reviews

The show is called "Looking", therefore, they are 'looking' for encounters. It's not pretending to be any different than what it is.

People may say that it's an unflattering representation - but it's still a highly pushed gay show... When the market is flooded with examples of such, then you can choose the one that's the most ennobling, but for now, it's still a small step in the right direction... We've had serious programs like "Queer as Folk" before, but never something so conventional and light hearted, whose only difference from similar shows with straight leads is that it's told from an alternative point of view. It may focus on a minority of a minority, but so what? I think that's only because it's trying to be less 'pro-advancement', and more casual.

It's getting so much attention because programs that are perceived to be 'flagship' in some way often have the most difficulty bedding in. They're expected to carry the can for everything, and you can't please all of the people, all of the time. That's why it's getting a fair amount of criticism, I think, because it's not weightier, given the subject it takes on.
