Last year, we were heart broken when the series Looking was pulled after its second season. On July 23rd, HBO gives its loyal Looki-loos some much anticipated love with Looking: The Movie, a two-hour special wrapping up the dangling storylines of Patrick, Agustin, Dom, and the rest of their San Fran crew.
If series creator Michael Lannan and his co-writer Andrew Haigh play their trump cards right, this finale film may be the sexiest gay movie ever made, evidenced by these six scintillating moments from the series itself.
Warning boys, Looking may lead to touching…
1. Looking Down
The series hits the ground running, opening on protagonist Patrick (Jonathan Groff) receiving fellatio under the foliage of Golden Gate Park. But, a few episodes later Looking tops itself when latin lover Richie (Raul Castillo) gives the young man-genue what misterscandal.com described as “the most realistic blowjob ever given on TV.”
2. Looking to Blast
In the third episode, its geek chic meets Freudian subtext when Patrick plays video games while straddling a torpedo with his boss, British bulldog puppy Kevin (Russell Tovey).
3. Looking to top
By season two, Patrick flips the script with big bad boss man Kevin. Literally. Counted as one of the “gay sex scenes that went too far for TV,” Groff has admitted that this scene where he tops his limey lover was one of the most intense performances he’s ever filmed. Ironically, Patrick had already prepared to bottom for his beautiful Brit bud…
4. Looking to Sweat
Don’t think Looking is all post-twink play time. Things get steamy for the gays-of-a-certain-age as well, as when Dom (Murray Bartlett) meets hunky Lynn (Scott Bakula) in a sauna, filmed at real San Francisco sex club Eros. Talk about Quantum DILF.
5. Looking to Make a Splash
The addition of Eddie (Daniel Franzese) to the cast in season 2 proves you don’t need to be skinny to skinny dip, and that bigger can be beautiful.
6. Looking to Master the Universe
Dom proves he has the power… to get us aroused when he hits up Halloween as He-Man. And much appreciation for the emphasis on the loin in loincloth.
