Series Summary
Three best friends living in San Francisco share the nuances and complexities of contemporary gay relationships as they explore a variety of options, both in love and in life. They are unified by their close bond, but their search for happiness and intimacy has taken them on separate paths. Patrick is a 29-year-old video game designer who is dating again after his ex's engagement; Agustin, 31, is apprehensive about choosing monogamy and domesticity instead of the excitement of city life; and longtime waiter Dom is at a crossroads, as middle age approaches and his romantic and professional goals remain unfulfilled. The trio's lives unfold against the backdrop of San Francisco's progressive, unpredictable, almost-anything-goes culture, and "Looking" makes full use of the city's unique character -- with filming taking place in more than 40 locations and in various neighborhoods throughout the Bay Area.

  • Some won't find it gay enough, others will likely wrinkle their nose at the word "gay" and avoid it like the plague. That's a shame, because with this quiet, sincere little show is quite revolutionary on its own. And that's something worth looking at. show more

  • The performances are nuanced and subtle.... Bakula's presence and air of experience add weight and depth to a show that occasionally seems too slight for its ambitions. show more

  • Looking is a good show. It will reward viewers who can hang on beyond the first episode and can adapt to its much slower pace and more naturalistic shooting style..... But, Looking will make you work to get there. show more
