HBO’s Latest ‘Looking’ Trailer Puts the Focus On Friends and Growing Pains

Looking gets more appealing with every new trailer.

The upcoming series about a group of gay male friends in San Francisco balances the growing pains of young (and not so young) adulthood with dating, humor and a brand of self-examination that should make the series a good companion for HBO’s Girls. Also, Russell Tovey (Being Human) gets a lot more screentime in this one and he is terrific as always. More importantly, Looking also happens to be genuinely funny.

“I asked out my boss while straddling a torpedo and he said no,” Jonathan Groff says in one particularly brilliant moment. Check out the full trailer below for ,ore.

Looking premieres Sunday, January 19th, 2014 at 10:30PM on HBO.
