I had a feeling it'd be cancelled it's SO much better than Girls though which is frustrating as that's had four (5 soon) seasons of sod all story... just gratuitous sex scenes and a constant "what am I doing with my life x" shrug.

I watched the last two episodes last night

Was quite emotional i really hope they make a movie because I need more closure, lmao

After shipping Kevin & Patrick the entire time I was so dissapointed with how much of a dick he acted in the last episode I'm not sure whether Patrick's better suited to him or Richie?

The finale did not have enough Augustin, and the moments between Dom & Dorism were sad but realistic.

Part of me wanted Dom & Patrick to get together <3 but that would have been weird considering the characters are more brotherly

Oh, and it's sad that Dom's storyline with his older fling ended quite abruptly...or was that just me?

Not surprised considering so much of the season was based on one of the most unrootable relationships on TV, but gutted regardless.

Relieved it's getting a finish to the story but still bitter it's ending so soon.

The film is airing tonight, so I will probably end up watching it tomorrow.

I'm looking forward to seeing the characters again and gaining some closure from the whole thing.

I've literally just finished watching the movie.

I'll do an in-depth write-up tomorrow, but I was very pleased by it all. I was anticipating its finish because I knew this would literally be the end, and the whole concept of this show has spoke to me more than any other TV series I've ever watched. The characters, the tone of the story-telling and the soundtrack, it's all just so perfect

My thoughts and feelings on Looking: The Movie...

Spoiler:

It was so good.

I was happy to see all of the characters again, and at one point in the film there was a scene where almost every important character was involved - it felt really nice seeing them all together. It really paid homage to how amazing the cast are and the characters they play. It would have been good to see Patrick's mum because I had a soft spot for her, but she wasn't really relevant to the overall plot of the movie so it made sense not to include her. The general tone of the movie was great, and it made me realise that the TV series itself was basically shot like mini-movies. There were no signifcant changes from the transition from TV to film like, say, Absolutely Fabulous had.

As I've already said - I related to the TV series a lot more than any other television programme I watch. I identified with most of the characters, and it's great that Looking have gone out of there way to create an accurate portrayal of gay men. There was obviously a sense of Americism attached to he show, and the San Francisco culture was apparent throughout. However, the storylines made the characters really relatable. The producers and cast did a good job of making the show come across as realistic as possible but still quite flashy and 'cool' at the same time.

I'm glad there was closure within the film. Throughout most the first and second seasons I wanted Kevin and Patrick to be together. I found Ritchie to be quite overrated as a character and thought that Kevin and Patrick were much better suited. That was before Kevin turned into a prick the last episode of season 2. It was interesting to watch their final scene (K & P) together because they did do a really good job in making it seem that they just weren't meant to be together, though it was sad to see Kevin still have blatant feelings for Patrick. I loved their final 'hug' together.

I did say after the S2 finale that I kinda shipped Dom and Patrick together despite their brotherly bond, so the scene where the made out was quite amusing to watch. I loved the outcome of it all, quite funny. Doris was still legendary, she proivded the sharp-wit she ormal would. I'm glad her story ended with her in a lovely relationship and wanting to start a family. Agustín's moment with Patrick on the rocks was a really nice one, and I understood exactly what he meant about becoming someone that you never thought you would be. His wedding was so cute and I'm glad he also got a happy ending (The moment with the Ordained Minister and Patrick was a good touch). It was happy endings all round, really Brady turned out to be a funny, drunken bitch. Though I do think that it was alluded that his character may have a alcohol issues - a terrible issue in the LGBT+ community.

I was quite happy to se Patrick and Richie end up together. Itwas what everyone wanted and I wasnt mad to see it. The ending was really lovely. t's bittersweet that it'sall come to a finish but I won't forget it. I'll probably re-watch it soon enough. And one of the best things that's come out of this whole thing is that it's made me realise that I really need to go out and find a good circle of gay friends I'm jealous of their friendships and how much they love each other. Growing up in a small town I never really got that
