‘Looking’ Review: HBO’s New Gay Series Will Make You Work

There’s a timeless element to HBO’s new gay-centric comedic drama, “Looking.”

I don’t mean that it’s going to be this classic show that will stand the test of time. I mean that except for references to OKCupid, Grindr and Instagram, the series feels as if it could have taken place a decade or more ago.

That’s to say that the naturalistic style in which it’s shot is unlike most shows on television today. And if there weren’t all those aforementioned social apps in the show, it could take place in the mid-90s or late-80s.
