  • OMG I Cant believe what u guys r saying.

    This episode is great, I can't beleive some comments here, QAF amazing perfomances and compelling stories but looking is crticised by the same person for showing (cute) hook up in the woods, and a threesome?

    I have to say that most of my gay friends ARE like these charecters, you can't stereotype something that is real, but you can' pretend these things don't happen.

    I hope the show continues this way as it is great.moreless
  • Very Bad

    As a San Francisco resident for over 20 years I have to say this show is HORRIBLE. It stereotypes beyond belief. Not every gay male is into public sex, talking about sex 24/7 hanging out in bars and having alcohol everywhere and worry about their lost loves every minute of their waking day. It's horrible, stereotypical, empty, shameful and out and out an utter insult to the LGBT community. Shame on you HBO!!!moreless
  • Looking is well... Disappointing

    Looking is a mediocre, out-of-date ideal look of the gay world. In only 30 mins we have a hook up in the woods, a threesome, and a random hookup on a train. It was a sad attempt to cash in on the gay audience and it just doesn't work. It's more of an insult.

    At least Showtime's Queer as Folk had some amazing performances and compelling stories. This show MAY last one season before crashing into obscurity. It doesn't break any boundaries instead it feeds into all stereotypes. Sadmoreless
