Screw the haters – HBO's Looking is not boring. It's the sweetest, best looking show about love and hookups, not to mention how much fun it is to watch the cast cruise around San Francisco (and a teenie tiny bit of Oakland). And come on, Richie and Patrick stumbling through "the boyfriend talk" last Sunday? So sweet. Watching Looking is like watching an indie movie in aesthetic and smarts, a rare find on TV. And I'm not the only fan. 

According to Variety, HBO has decided to renew Looking for a second season. I guess it was more of a grower than a shower, starting slow but adding audience numbers over the last three episodes. So we get to see all the boys (and perhaps some more girls?) for another run – both on TV, and when they're back here filming again in San Francisco.
