Incredible!
I was indifferent after the first episode.
Intrigued after the second.
In love after the third.
Its unique pacing takes a little getting used to, but its natural acting and grit are enough to keep you watching. The two combined set it apart from its contemporaries, and its subtle wiles are sure to work on you.

Completely missed this when it was shown on Sky Atlantic, only hearing about it after seeing Johnathan Groff in C.O.G. [DVD] [2013] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC], and wanting to explore more of his work.
Thank goodness for Amazon and Instant Video!

The entire cast is a treat to watch, most notable amongst them being (obviously) Jonathan Groff as Patrick; Murray Bartlett as Dom; Raul Castillo as Richie and Frankie Alvarez as Agustin. Scott Bakula's in there too, and throw in a-bit-o-Brit in the form of Russell Tovey and what more you could ask?!

It's about relationships, plain and simple; but there's little about relationships that is plain and simple, if you follow me. The making of them. The breaking of them. The life that gets in the way. Or the man!

I found Patrick and Raul's story the most engaging (I'm still thinking about Raul Castillo's last speech), but honestly it's a pleasure to be a part of the entire ensemble and their individual story arcs.
Full of friendships and all the extremes that come along with such a contract, this show is sure to work its quiet magic on you. It's understated, but not under valued.

All the characters had depth. The pace while gentle was perfectly realistic and engaging. Comparisons with Girls is misleading as this is a masterpiece of very varied human relationships. If you like this watch Weekend also by Andrew Haigh

Brilliant series! Fantastic characters, strong and incisive plots, stylishly filmed without the pretension and just thoroughly enjoyable throughout. Series 2 can't come quick enough. Hats off to Andrew Haigh...once again!

This is by far the best gay television ever produced, and far better than all but one or two gay movies. Its greatness is owed to only two of the many talented people involved, without whom it would be merely good: Andrew Haigh, the creative genius behind it, and Jonathan Groff, its spectacularly versatile, gifted and delightful star.

The episodes written and directed by Haigh are so perfect they make me want to sing (I can't sing); the episodes written and directed by others are all right, but more tedious than fascinating.

The very, very best episodes are the ones featuring Groff (Patrick) and Raúl Castillo, who plays Patrick's boyfriend Richie. They're the sweetest, sexiest, and yet most thoroughly believable romantic scenes I've ever seen anywhere. No melodrama, lots and lots of truth and intelligence. An American never could have created such a program as Looking; very few from anywhere could have either, which is why I call Haigh a genius.

The first season follows an arc, but a quality arc, not a story arc. They get consistently better through Episode Five, then gradually fall off after that. But even at its worst, Looking is the very best there is.

Two of the lead actors (Groff and Murray Bartlett) are openly gay, which helps A LOT. Not only does it increase Looking's credibility, but it minimizes the number of stupid, insulting but evidently obligatory "How was it kissing a man?" interviews with straight actors.

Great storylines and brilliant characters. Also shows there's hope for old guys like me (I'm 62). LOOKING forward to season 2.

Once it clicked, at episode 3, I really got into it. At that point I felt the story lines and characters are all totally believable. Yes, I'd say Looking is well worth 'Looking at', particularly if you like a good drama, spiced with comedy. Yeah, watch it, see it, look at it! Looking. Roll on Season 2, I want to know what's going on. 10/10 from me.

This is very enjoyable and believable story about a group of well-balanced contemporary gay men in San Francisco. The performances are excellent, especially Jonathan Groff.
