News & Interviews for Looking: Season 2
On rooftops and in basements, in Golden Gate Park and the East Bay, Looking found a finely crafted realism perfect for its subdued storytelling, underlining its characters' halting adventures in adulthood with intricate compositions and fluent camerawork.
Looking is special thanks to its subject matter and its characters, and it's a shame there aren't more people championing a show that's emotionally real and often puts its characters into funny circumstances.
What I admired most about this first episode was how the writers set up the season's biggest themes and story arcs while also giving the characters ample time to cut loose.
Season 2 of HBO's gay drama, Looking, returns to our screens picking up with Patrick, Dom and Agustin as they take a trip to Russian River.
[It] is the network's best and most original effort in the half-hour category since Enlightened. Those who stuck with its first season were treated to a story that took a modern, downbeat vibe and extended it into full, fragile beauty in eight episodes.
Audience Reviews for Looking: Season 2
Season 2 of Looking got even better. Patrick struggled to balance his relationships with Kevin, his boss and Richie, now with a new boyfriend. Dom tries again with his restaurateur dream but it made his friendship with Doris harder. Augustin met a new guy who is HIV positive and had trouble adjusting. The story was more consistent and wittier than the first season. Raw emotional drama was ensured.
This Sunday (1.11.15) marked the return of three boys from San Fran, struggling to keep their lives together amidst the chaos of their own discontent. Looking kicked off its second season with a lively and dream-like premiere episode, as Patrick, Dom, and Agustin headed to the woods for a quiet getaway turned LGBT midnight rave filled with sex, drugs, dancing, and skinny-dipping. Pat tries his hardest to refrain from wallowing in his own misery for how badly he handled his situation with Richie, who he’s obviously still hung up on. And yet, the one person he can’t keep off his mind is Kevin, as we learn that their secret relationship has developed since we saw them last. This is obviously an issue for Pat, considering Kevin still has a boyfriend. Agustin seemed to have gone off the deep end for a while after his break-up with Frank, accusing Pat and Dom of their getaway being a staged intervention after Pat suggests a weekend of sobriety. However, according to Pat, the weekend is solely meant to be a getaway for the three to spend time together, although secretly, he hopes for this weekend to signify the cutting of his ties with Kevin. It’s not long before Doris, as hilarious and outspoken as ever, arrives and turns their calm weekend on its head, as four take Ecstasy and head to The Promised Land, a rave in the middle of the woods.
