This evening, The Castro Theater in San Francisco, California., played host the premiere of HBO's new drama/comedy, "Looking" , and what a treat it was.
The theater was packed from the get! You could feel electricity and hype everywhere in the crowd. HBO's new gay cables series has been gaining buzz ever since the shooting date was announced last Summer. The word on the street is that this series is long over due but nonetheless welcomed!
For those of you not in the loop, "Looking" , is set in contemporary San Francisco and is about a 29 year old game developer named Patrick (Jonathon Groff) who comes to SF looking for love, to experience life, and pursuit gay happiness.
The opening of the first episode was great, we find Patrick cruising for awkward sex at a local park, which immediately solicits chuckles & giggles from the all gay audience.
After the screening, the panel of actors and director fielded Q & A with the audience.
This most entertaining audience question asked was, "which of the actors are really gay and which are not" ?
I'm sure I was thinking what everyone was thinking, "who even cares, we just want to see them naked" .
And don't forget to watch, "Looking" , as it premiers on National television this Sunday (January 19) on HBO, check your local listings!
See you next time kids!
