  2. Francine says:

    I’m really looking forward to True Detective. The trailer is fantastic.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Not officially renewed yet. Sorkin’s busy.

      • trainwreck says:

        whaaat? :O
        I have binge-watched the entire series and can i just say “whaaaat” on “not yet renewed” status?
        What is the hold-up? The lead actor just won the Emmy for best leading man, show does fairly well in ratings and the entire ensemble is fantastic!

        • trainwreck says:

          i think i missed “Sorkin’s busy” part.. but still: Mr. Sorkin, if you’re reading, GET YOUR PRIORITIES straight and give us a season 3!

  4. Zach says:

    The script I read for Looking (before it had a title) was the worst. The gay stereotypes were there, and while that was annoying, it wasn’t the main problem. The main problem was IT WAS NOT FUNNY! There were literally no attempts at humor. I can’t wait to not watch.

    • KSM says:

      Maybe it changed since it got a title.

    • alistaircrane says:

      The funny thing about stereotypes is that they’re mostly true! And I say this as a gay man who loves my queeny, flamboyant brothers. I don’t think you can say the same.

      • Zach says:

        I have numerous gay friends, but only one who is remotely flamboyant. But maybe that’s just me, and I tend to be friends with people I have things in common with.

  5. Jared says:

    Excited for both!

  6. Reblogged this on popculturerevelations and commented:
    So excited for Girls season 3!

  7. aRiv says:

    Would you please stop prefacing Looking and/or Jonathan Groff’s show as “gay.” It doesn’t make it less of a tv series than the non-epithet-ed Girls, etc.

    Have you heard anything of NBC about the date of the premiere of Chicago PD?
