Watch Looking

Looking isn't the first television show to center around a group of gay characters, but it might be the first to do so in a way that is natural and casual in its presentation. Shows such as The L Word focused on discovering sexuality and "coming out" as the primary focus of the show. But Looking describes itself as a "post-gay" show and that really means that it's a show that has gay characters in it, but the character's sexuality is just another, equal part of their overall lives.

The shows centers on Jonathan Groff as Patrick, a video game designer Patrick (Jonathan Groff), artist assistant Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez) and wine waiter Dom (Murray Bartlett). Agustin has just agreed to move in with his boyfriend and struggles with commitment, while Dom wrestles with the fact he's becoming middle-aged. Patrick is simply struggling, in everything from his personal life to his career.
