[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.

I'm a whole lot more excited about finding out what this season has in store than I was at the end of season one.

Everyone is pretty much where we left them.

Looking may seem a bit quotidian compared to the current requirements of the weekly series format, but its attention to detail isn't given nearly enough credit.

Jan 10, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Looking distinguishes itself by moving past the tired cliches involving gay life to a more matter-of-fact, intensely personal snapshot of these characters and struggles, told in a serialized fashion.

The second season of HBO's Looking has much of what made the first season such a promising groundbreaker, and more. So why does it feel so static and, frankly, a bit boring?

Jan 7, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Looking: Season 2

    An extension of Season 1, its the perfect continuation of the series: a non-pretentious look at gay life rooted in a more realistic setting: people working average jobs (hair dresser, social service workers, mixed with software designers) and showing that gay life isn't all posh and high income earners. I also love that its a diverse cast, because there aren't enough gay latino voices on TV, yet half the cast revolves around gay latinos. It goes where a lot of other shows haven't and its a must see.

    Better than Season 1, and great look at Patrick's tragically realistic life. Sad that it couldn't continue, but really how much of a disaster can one character be for so long without imploding? Recommended watch.

    Sweet story. We have to know what will be happened next!!!

    I love this show. Season 2 had a bit of a different vibe, with different challenges and situations in their life. It's so raw and insane and beautiful, with really great characters that i love to live through and i hope the closing special next year gives the show justice.

    One of the most realistic shows I've seen to which it's easy to relate. Great cast, great quality.

    This show wonderfully depicted the lives of gay men in modern times, and the struggles that we deal with. It didn't give us stereotypes, but showed us a more human side of the daily life of a gay man. It was beautifully written and the acting was incredible. From episode one, the chemistry between each character was simply amazing. Such a great crew.

    A tv-series that has been incredibly revolutionary and important to an often marginalized gay community. The first show that truly portrays gay people as persons, as humans first and foremost. And the first tv-show where being gay is not a problem or an issue but where gay peoples lives is shown to have meaning. Where you explore a gay-majority world and where gay men aren't accessories, sidekicks or comic reliefs. If not on HBO, please help make arrangements for it's continuation on another network. It would be tragic if this show is lost. I feel that a special episode will not do justice to the stories of these characters who have become like friends to us. :( This show is very real, very natural. I love everything Andrew Haigh makes. So sad that HBO cancelled it. I would really like to see another season.

    Want a recipe for a Peri Peri bad soap ? Throw in a banal title, a character actor taking a Quantum career leap backwards,maybe jus it up with a dash of butt fucking that's about as spicy as Alice doing Doc Horton with a strap on in the Days of Our Lives cafeteria.Next, chuck in some hills,chuck in Doc Horton's quivering anus, chuck in some chuck, garnish some character sketches for 69 second Maggi noodles advert-I-sements,and, finally,try and swallow enough bad double entendre to make Frankie Howerd gag. Voila: you've got "Looking" a soap that's as unwatchable as it is inedible.
