Looking on HBO

I'm not really sure what to think of this show. It felt like it was on forever. Nothing happened. It was like watching a filibuster. I got a few chuckles when the guy was on the date but the rest of the show was terrible. I can't figure out why HBO would pick this up.

It's nice to see gay characters that aren't flamboyant stereotypes but a bunch of boring characters don't really make for good TV.

I saw a couple commercials for this show. I didn't think it look like my kind of show at all.

Sounds like the gay version of Girls.

That's what I was expecting. It wasn't that at all. The Girls characters are fun to hate. I had trouble feeling anything for these characters. They were so bland. I hope it gets better.

I finally watched the first episode last night. I'm not ready to abandon it yet. I found the characters more likable than those on 'Girls', however.

I think they can develop a lot from what they have, and hope they do. I've been thinking about QAF a lot lately and what a great show that was. I see a couple of things in this one that are similar but not on the same level - at least yet.
