‘Looking: The Complete First Season’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When I first watched Looking on television, I will admit that it didn’t hook me and I moved on to other things.  The first episode just didn’t seem to have that spark that I was looking for to keep my interest.  Now with the release of Looking: The Complete First Season though I decided to […]
