    so I watched the remaining episodes and I have to say I wasted my time. No offense again, it's just not my show. I just wish they would show more struggles of the lgbt community such as racism, homelessness, more HIV/AIDS discussion, more diversity, actually have american actors if it's an american production, and anything else that I miss that whenever a gay drama pop ups every so often they forget to cover.

    I just can't get over how stupid that main character white boy is. He's so desperate for dick he's making ignorant decisions. I don't like how the black guy is super super super light skinned and he's all muscular and dominating. I don't like how being that the show is thirty minutes, they can't make the most of that time. I don't like how the only character I kinda like, the reno 911 looking mustache guy, hardly ever gets screentime and his storyline is never concluded.

    bah that's it. I'm done.
    Geez man. It sounds like you want the plight of the entire LGBT community in a half hour show. That is the only thing I agree with, it should be an hour. Again, it is just a show about 3 homo guys and their friends. The white boy is stupid, the black guy is too light skinned, you have got to be kidding.

    Re: HBO's new show "Looking" starring Jonathan Groff

    I wasn't aware the guy was black in the first place, why his being light-skinned matters in the second place, and how he's dominating in the third place(did that change in episode 5? Did he give his bearded lover the backhand or something?).

    I do agree that the "white boy" is desperate for dick though, which makes me wonder if, again, that's how Sex and the City was like.

    I don't know what I wanted from the show. If it's just good fun, I wish it was more on that level. If they want us to care about the characters, there just isn't enough there to make me do that - I want to know more about Dom, definitely, but don't know enough to care about the couple and the lead annoys me to death. I'll try episode 5 since it seems to have gotten rave reviews(though I'm hoping it's not just because of the sex scene).

    I wish people would stop (and I know it's not you, Mouf) comparing this show to Sex and the City. It's not even on the same level. I just think that's some bs the PR department at HBO came up with to try to pull more viewers for this borefest.

    Re: HBO's new show "Looking" starring Jonathan Groff

    I think the last episode was the best so far. Jonathan Groff's character started to develop in this last episode. I think the show is starting to pick up. It takes several episodes for character's to develop. Now the other character's need to start to develop. In a half hour episode it's difficult to develop. That is why it takes several episodes. I am looking forward to this Sunday's episode. I think the show is becoming a good show and just give it some time.

    Re: HBO's new show "Looking" starring Jonathan Groff

    I like how the writers are trying to defend the "boring" storytelling. They said there were trying for "realistic portrayal of gay men" and talk about a bold-faced lie. A 20-something gay in SF has never seen an uncut penis before? Give me a fucking break here.

    It's quite the tell that since HBO hasn't given the greenlight for a second season of Looking that this is gonna be a one-and-done show. If you are an HBO viewer, you know they usually greenlight another season at the latest, midway through a current season.

    There's a web series, "Hunting Season," that follows the lives of four gay friends in NYC. It was online in 2012 and they're filming the second season now. I think that show should've been picked up by HBO instead. I think it's more entertaining. Plus, it seems like gay New York is mostly ignored. I feel like gay California gets more attention and it's unfair!

    This is why we cant have nice things.

    I watched the 5th episode of Looking, btw... and yes, of the 5, it's the best one yet - mainly because it actually let me learn more about at least 2 of the characters.

    That said. The main character... I really, really don't like him. The way he talks to and about people(everything from Aids to his dates' abuella) rubs me in such a bad way that I agree wholeheartedly with reone - if I met a guy like that in real life, there's no way I could like him.

    The guy he's dating can do better than go for a cute jerk.

    I am with you 100% on this. The main character is not very likable, and I think it is because he is not very vulnerable. I think that is probably why I was drawn to Richie's character in the first place (plus the fact that he is SMOKIN hot). He just seems more real, and definitely deserves someone 100X cooler to fuck.

    And IMO Jonathon Groff isnt THAT hot either, but I might be a sucker for latinos so I'm partial ha

    ^Actually reading into some internet discussions on Patrick, it makes a lot more sense. He really is an unlikable protagonist. I guess that is one for "realism in storytelling". Let's be candid here. "Indie" TV only works well if it's gritty and this show is too prudish [and I don't even mean with nudity] to actually go to those places.

    Its a "reality show" so you can't compare. The dallas one was even worse.

    I ran 5 episodes on HBO GO while I worked on the pc. I got my work done which is a good indicator that this boring piece of chump shit didn't grab my interest. Cliche scripts acted poorly with gutless whiney emotion and come on artist & florist, fucking non real world Castro District gays, yawn.

    This is the best new show of the TV season and the best American show to ever feature gay lead characters. Period.

    Re: HBO's new show "Looking" starring Jonathan Groff

    Episode 6 was great, imo. And the plot is moving much quicker now and characters are starting to taking shape. Actually building on story lines and creating some suspense. I can't wait for next week's episode tbh.

    Getting better! I'd love to know if they brought in a new writer, consultant or something for the last two episodes. The dynamic of the show has changed. The pace, character development, even the overall structure is noticeably different. I actually want more.

    I don't know about new writers. Consultants, maybe... But perhaps building the plot and storyline in this manner is intentional. Anyways, I am very excited to see what happens at the wedding, despite the fact that I'm rooting for Richie and Patrick to work.

    That's a load of horse shit if I ever heard one. One good episode does not make it the savior of the modern masses.

    I liked the 6th episode...not as much as the 5th...but still good. I really just don't like Augustine...he adds absolutely nothing to the show and his story line is stupid.

    Wow you guys are a bunch of miserable queens I think this show is mad real a bunch of guys who are looking to find their way and I think the show been good since the 3rd episode.

    The characters are meant to have a bunch of flaws like everybody in real life had flaws.
    And I'm not Richie bandwagon homie was willing to call the relationship off as soon as it got a little rocky.

    You guys got to understand it's also the leads first boyfriend or "love". He's still learning about himself and like all of us with our first live we are oblivious to how we make them feel.

    I don't get the hate the show is extreamly acted well and the writing is superb(ie; we find out more about the main characters through their relationships and not with a bunch of exposition)

    But honestly I'm rooting for Rich and the lead.

    The lead is too much into his head and Rich is too much into his emotions they balance each other out perfectly. I'm down to have a legit convo about the show and the chachters that's why I loged back on to this site after years of hiatus but it seems like y'all just wanna see whether it's good or not.

    If the lead portrayed ~21, sure, I'd believe that but he's 28. That's the kicker for me and I'm sure a few others. Some older guys might buy into the "late bloomer" stuff but most gay guys will have been around the block in a relationship at least once before that point. If not, good chance as to why they remain single.

    I agree. I like this show and it appears to be getting progressively better. I would love to smack Augustine though, I can't tolorate guys who shit on their friends like he did with Patrick. If I was Richie I think I would have slugged him about his comment to Patrick about slumming it. What a dick. The wedding should be a fun watch. I know it probably won't happen but I would love to see another season and hour long episodes.

    We're miserable "queens" because we have different opinions? Whatever you say, "thug".

    If my recollection serves me, Richie was willing to call it off because they were, at first, clearly looking for different things. Expecting your date to have an uncut dick because your friends said most Mexicans do kind of has that effect. Looking at pictures online and being disappointed that it didn't match reality was another sign... and that was in the third episode.

    It's actually his 2nd love. His first love was shown in the first episode - the guy that was getting married. The episode where he made a smart move and took Richie up on his offer.

    Well, until the very well done 5th episode, we really didn't know much(or enough) about ANY of the characters, except for Dom. I don't know what you consider to be exposition, but it seemed most people were in love with the fifth episode because of a blowjob (coyly unseen of course), and honestly had they taken that out, the episode probably would have been BETTER. Of course, that's my opinion.

    Of course I want to see if the show is GOOD or not - that's why I watch it and form an opinion on it, rather than have people ion here do it for me. If you want to have a "legit" conversation about it, then do so - just don't come into it expecting everyone to agree... and calling people miserable queens because they don't see the same things you do in it doesn't really endear your cause.

    I think you are making a huge assumption on people's maturity levels and personal development. There are a lot of factors behind why he probably hasn't, and I think this affects a lot of guys:

    1. He clearly hasn't completely shed trying to live up to family expectations
    2. His friends also haven't been encouraging any relationship with guys he has tried to date.
    3. Emotional detachment as a security blanket...the longer you are emotionally closed off, the more layers you put on to remain that way
    4. If you lead your life looking for perfection, you tend to find flaws. He seems like a character who has done this in the past but is turning a new leaf with the help of Richie
    5. Thinking your in a relationship when really your just fucking.

    I'm 25, never had a boyfriend. I can honestly say I suffer from some of these things, I'm just not as much of an asshole about it as the lead haha.

    Amen to this bro. I really wanted Richie to clock his ass because that comment was out of line. If we are really being honest, the only character who might possibly be in a different tax bracket (36.9K-89.3K) is Patrick...last time I checked barbers/hairstylists make a lot more than starving artists and waiters. I don't understand how the rest of the characters eat and afford rent in a city like San Francisco, let alone PAYING FOR SEX, without pullin tricks themselves or selling drugs.

    I think Augustine feels some undeserved sense of superiority/entitlement because he is a "creative". I mean, black guy (debatable-but thats a WHOLE different topic) with cheetos at a picnic is just as classless as any other nationality, but I am glad they showed this clip because that is the kind of mentality that all black people (and other minorities) have to deal with, especially with gay guys sadly.

    Ok last thing: Anyone else falling more in love with Richie after this past episode? I havent had a man crush this bad since my freshman year wrestling coach! Ok I'm done.

    Re: HBO's new show "Looking" starring Jonathan Groff

    I don't feel like replying to everyone so I'll just say what's important

    First of all to assume 28 year olds especially guys like Patrick to have experience love and a true relationship (not fucking for 2 years and hanging out) is kind of you know a false blanket of reality. We don't know the depthless of the married guys relationship.

    Now about the exposition part homie made a rant about if you still don't see anything about those characters and what they really are like through their relationships Dom and the flower shop guy and Patrick and Richie then fine you don't see it. Sometimes certain things aren't meant to be dumb down and for everyone to get. Maybe it would take you next season. We'll probably find out more about Augustine next episode but you can tell with certain comments he made what type of person he is or even the type of person he pretends or try to be. The same can be said with Patrick and Dom you kind if saw the real Dom when he kissed him it's a pure action but it holds so much weight behind and now he's in dilemma. He can go for a guy he really likres or he he can just have a business relationship

    As far as keep watching stuff because you wanna find out it's good or not?
    Bull shit

    People been complaining about walking dead for the past 3 seasons and people will sit at 9pm on Sunday to talk how bad it is within the hour. All I'm saying if you don't think it's a good show you wouldn't keep watching it. Your telling me your about be 7 episodes ( like a whole season) deep into it and you not feeling it?
    Lol
    Yeah right buddy

    Like I said let's talk about the show instead of having bitchfest about it

    All these characters are sympathetic and dispicable at the same time

    As far as calling it off they wasn't in a relationship during that time so I wasn't referring to that obviously I'm referring to the last episode.

    But since we are on that uncut thing yeah it was insensitive to say but it ain't that serious to be all butt hurt about but I don't know I'm from NYC we cut from a thicker skin out here

    No pun intended lol

    I just got HBO again and saw the last episode and it is weird watching because the nailed the people I knew working in the nightclubs and going to parties...dating...friends...I can even name the guy who fit each one of their personalities. Kinda freaky how realistically they wrote the characters. That is rare.

    Because all 28s are mature as fuck while the 21s are plain idiots. Even if you were right, it´s what gives the lead character a reason to be the lead character.

    Let´s face it, some of you that constantly come back to say how bad the show is got stuck on the idea that it sucks and there is no way of you recognizing that maybe you were wrong. And some really don´t like it. But you sure as hell watch it closely and end up making lists here about some characters´ flaws. It´s laughable. You don´t like? Naw turn off the fucking tv. You don´t have to watch it just because it´s gay themed.

    For the past years I´ve seen everyone crying about how gay people are stereotyped as feminine twinks who fuck everything with a pulse and are as superficial as your average pop star. Then, why do they use pumped up guys. Then, why do they use perfect bears and not your average next door neighbor. Now that they USE the next door neighbor character it seems that it´s too blunt. I really can´t understand it.

    Personally, it´s the first gay series that I´ve seen for more than 2 episodes, it´s really really well done and it shows things without exaggerating or lacking information.

    ps - I don´t like Richie :P I hope he´s out soon hehe

    ^If the could address the problems of season 1, specifically pacing, I feel the show will improve greatly.

    There needs to be a sex scene between Kevin and his HOT boyfriend. That is all.

    Oops! I mean it won´t bother me if he stays or not, it´s a tv show and you get what they give you (why I hate when everyone says ¨it should be like that, it should have that etc¨). But I don´t like the character´s personality (but the actor is pretty damn good!), it seems like the cute guy that´s fucked up and will eventually do stupid crap. Which is why they will probably keep him hehe..

    If they don't put more black characters in season 2, then I'll continue to not watch this show. Sims 4 would be out by then and I can make my own gay show. lol.

    Yea, and if Noahs Ark ever comes back, which I loved, I'm not going to watch it if there are not more white guys in it.

If not, good chance as to why they remain single.
    Sorry, you don't speak for me. I'm 24 turing 25 soon. Never been in a relationship and I'm mature for my age. And i'm still perfectly content with being single at the moment. It's a few of the ones around me that don't know how to handle love, sex, and their emotions.

    I think seeing it from the outside looking in towards my friends relationships, I'm able to observe and learn what most are doing wrong. (Even though I know being in one, one can learn more). I definitely know not all gay guys are like that, but when I see alot of immaturity around me in terms of relationships, I can easily be single at the moment. It could just be the area I'm in though and I'm military. I have been out since 14, so I could just be an exception.

    But just because someone has been single since 28 has a problem with them. I don't ever like that reasoning. I find that thinking shallow to be honest.

    Noah's Arc isn't as successful as the hbo show is, whether you want to agree with it or not. Plus at that time social media wasn't as big as it is today for pop culture to spread around.

    plus that's the very reason I hated Noah's Arc. It took place in la, yet all the characters were black and none of them had any white friends or partners and that just seemed very unrealistic.

    According to the 2010 U.S. Census, San Francisco is 48% white, followed by 33% Asian. Only 6% black...self identifying hispanic 15%. Furthermore, if we estimate that only 10% of the population is gay, and only 1/2 of them are men, there should really only be White and Asian characters and maybe a hispanic guy, statistically speaking.

    What is the basis for this comment, besides you personally wanting more black characters on the show?

    Have you not noticed that none of the extras are black either? It is because there aren't that many black people in San Francisco.

    In reality, it has exactly enough black people(1-debatably). If this show was happening in D.C., Atlanta, New Orleans, or New York there would be a lot more, and it would be an entirely different show...but this ain't that.
    If anything there should be more Asians and more Hispanics.

    Why can't you value the show for what it is showing? GAY characters (plural) on mainstream TV in leading roles with situational (as opposed to slapstick Will & Grace sitcom) humor. I am sure HIV and other issues will come later on if it gets support, but those type of story lines need to be developed or else they lose their potential. I get your frustration about being underrepresented but to put more black people for the sake of black people being in the show wouldn't be representative of this microcosm of America.

    I'm just saying it would be nice to see a gay black character as I'm black myself.

    The only time you see any type of interracial gay action, it's nothing positive. Prison shows do not count.

    Yea I understand your frustration as I am black myself, but I just know I'd rather it be done right rather than risk being inauthentic to what these people's lives are actually like. And you have to take into account that the ethnic experience in the gay community is something that good Hollywood writers probably dont have enough experience with, because there aren't as many of us. Trust me, this show lays ground work for that to be done, but its still farther down the road and should be done correctly and appropriately. The last thing I would want to see is 5 black guys in stilettos around a table sipping white wine or a group of DL "thugs". Plus it is still in season 1, I am sure more people of different ethnic backgrounds will come into the script next season...hopefully some Asians...we just have to keep watching and support!

    So why is he at his sister's wedding with his boss? Smh. Richie is way too cool for this dweeb.
