Own every episode of this groundbreaking series, plus the feature-length movie in one amazing 5-disc set from HBO!
Looking offers up the unfiltered experiences of three close friends living - and loving - in modern-day San Francisco. Friendship may bind them, but each is at a markedly different point in his journey: Patrick (Jonathan Groff) is the 29-year-old video game designer getting back into the dating world in the wake of his ex's engagement; aspiring artist AgustÃn (Frankie J. Alvarez), 31, is questioning the idea of monogamy amid a move to domesticate with his boyfriend; and the group's oldest member - longtime waiter Dom (Murray Bartlett), 39 - is facing middle age with romantic and professional dreams still unfulfilled. The trio's stories intertwine and unspool dramatically as they search for happiness and intimacy in an age of unparalleled choices - and rights - for gay men.
Reasons to Buy
- It may be cancelled, but we'll always have two seasons and a movie to remember and enjoy - all collected here! Looking is, in our humble opinion, an expertly-crafted, near-perfect series.
- The show explores the sometimes overwhelming options available to a new generation of gay men, but also focuses on themes that everyone, gay and straight, can relate to: falling in love, finding professional fulfillment, forging an identity in a complicated world, searching for happiness.
- There is some immense talent behind this show - particularly Jonathan Groff, who is blowing up by bringing gay cinema into the mainstream with movies like C.O.G. and The Normal Heart and Andrew Haigh, who directed Weekend (one of the most acclaimed, beloved gay-themed movies in recent memory). It's also funny, touching, insightful and sexy as hell!
