Looking is a fantastic show about modern gay men in San Francisco that both feels realistic and educates viewers about the gay community.

Patrick (Jonathan Groff) falls for barber Richie (Raúl Castillo) just as handsome, gay boss Kevin (Russell Tovey) comes into his life. Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez) is trying to find his way in the erotic art world, while Dom (Murray Bartlett) wants to make a life change ahead of his 40th birthday.

Patrick, Agustín and Dom are a great group of friends with flaws that fight and love each other passionately. The differences in their lives makes their sexuality a secondary factor as you root for them in their professional as well as personal lives.

Groff is charmingly awkward and brings a quality to Patrick that many will identify with.

Final say: A good find. ★★★★★
