New Series in Rental: Tyrant (Fox) and Looking (HBO)

In case the snow has you thinking of hibernation, grab a massive bag of malteasers to bury in the garden and settle down for some serious in-door time with a new favourite show:

LookingLooking, written, directed and produced by Britain’s Andrew Haigh (Weekend, 2011) revolves around the lives of a group of gay men in San Fransisco at different stages of their lives as they negotiate themselves, their friendships, relationships and careers. Cool and honest, in that kind of self-absorbed way that draws inevitable comparisons with HBO’s Girls. Well worth watching.
