I've grown tired of the snark and armchair reviews. I worked as key on this show and can say without a doubt that it was conceived by, for, and with kind, talented gay men who wanted to tell the intimate stories of our current struggles in love and friendships. It's heartbreaking to see the very people for whom the show was made - with great love and sweat - rip it apart with sarcasm and 'shade'. Worse yet, celebrating its demise? It feels like watching black people vote republican? Looking wasn't for everyone, clearly. But it was a rarity. It was honest. It was authentic. It didn't judge its characters, or its audience. And thanks to the vitriol of our detractors and contrarians, an actual gay ensemble won't happen again for a long time. You thought looking was "boring"? I think your attitude is boring. Please go out there and make something with a fraction of the quality and care that Looking was made and try to get it seen by anyone but your snide friends. Just try that. It's a Herculean feat. You have no idea.
