      Now that I know it is by the guy that did Weekend, I will definitely be missing this. Lord what a piece of self-indulgent crap that film was.

      Why would anyone want to compare a new show to a proven ratings flop like Girls? I’d stay away from any Girls comparisons.

      In any case, these shows aren’t really that popular, not even with gay men. Why would gay men want to watch other gay men on TV? Gay men live it, they don’t need to see it.

      @jimbryant: Could it be for the same reason that straight women seemed to rather enjoy Sex and the City?

      So it’s like Sex and the City and Girls put together.

      Just kidding. I’m sure it’s going to be a wonderful show in it’s own right. I’m certainly looking forward to Jonathon Groff naked.

      Straight women watched Sex and the City to see slutty women and how they sell themselves to men. This is how women get cues as to how to sell themselves to men.

      Sex and the City was basically trash.

      @Charlie, actually it was gay men who enjoyed Sex and the City.

      @jimbryant: Ratings shmatings. The Wire had poor ratings, but is considered one of the best television shows of all time. And with 4.6 million viewers per episode, Girls ratings don’t support the “flop” allegations.

      @jimbryant:

      Yeah, like Jimstoic said, 4.6 million for a cable subscription show? I don’t think that’s exactly a flop. Especially when there’s a lot of competition on Sundays.

      As for this show, Idk how I feel about it. For obvious reasons (my screenname) I hate Jonathan Groff (before he was Quinto’s ex though, I still felt kinda off about him and don’t think I’d like to see a show with him as the star) and being only 21, I can’t exactly relate to what gay middle aged men go through. I kinda wish the spectrum was a little more open with gays of different generations. 20 something gays aren’t really well represented on TV either. Just a ‘SPECIAL’ episode with an emotional gay subplot once every other season on random shows to keep GLAAD off their backs.

      It should be interesting to check out. Weekend was an interesting take on a specific relationship. Hopefully they don’t make it as though gay guys have to do drugs or booze it up to have a life.

      I’m trying to see how straight men? and women would find this appealing to watch being that they make up the majority of HBO subscriptions. Based on this preview alone, it doesn’t look enticing from a narrative perspective.

      “If there is one show that every gay is going to watch this January, it’s definitely Looking.”

      I can personally debunk this declaration.

      It won’t be anything like Sex in the City because SITC lasted for 6 seasons. =)

      ‘Weekend’ bored me to death. I don’t understand its cult following.
