‘LOOKING’ HBO’s TV series

Just finished binge watching Michael Lannan‘s TV series LOOKING on HBO.  Absolutely loved it! It’s two series & one TV movie to tie everything up. All I can say is I didn’t want it to end. I’m still stunned about how easily I became emotionally invested in the characters.

I loved the story arc of Patrick (Jonathan Groff) & Richie (Raúl Castillo). I won’t say too much in case you haven’t seen it.

I was disappointed (that’s putting it mildly) with Russell T Davies ‘CUCUMBER’ (He who created the fantastic QUEER AS FOLK). So, I was very happy at last, to see LOOKING work for me on all levels.

Is it a good idea that it didn’t go on further? We all want more, but perhaps leaving it on top, with the story concluded is simply the best way. I felt the American QUEER AS FOLK was dragged out far too much.

I was dreading that final shot when I knew the camera would pull back. It feels like I’ve lost a group of friends.

If you haven’t seen it yet, definitely give it a binge.
