LOOKING: THE COMPLETE SERIES AND THE MOVIE REVIEWED

“Looking” is one of those HBO shows that targeted a certain demographic and immediately got your parents to stop watching. What they missed is one of the most nuanced modern cable shows about relationships. Series creators Andrew Haigh and Michael Lannan were able to take a near documentary feel to an aspect of American life that either gets glamorized or slandered for most. HBO finally had a realistic show about what it is to be gay in the 21st century. More importantly, it’s about three friends just trying to make sense out of life.

While the first season focuses heavily on Jonathon Groff’s character, there’s so much more going on with Augustin and Dom. Hell, Dom’s look at aging and what it means in a culture where youth and vitality are given preferred status open up the show to so many new reads. But, all of this builds to Looking: The Movie and Groff’s character having to decide whether or not he can officially mature. It’s odd to call a show earnest, but “Looking” has earned that moniker in spades.
