Though we still have a Looking movie to look forward to next year, fans like me and HBO president Michael Lombardo are really gonna miss Patrick and the kids.

At the Television Critics' Association press tour today, Lombardo said canceling the show was "very painful" for him on a "personal level."  

"I thought the show, creatively, was really doing something that I hadn't seen on any other show, particularly dealing with gay lives," he lamented. "As a gay man, in particular, I was very proud that there was a show that felt like it was dealing very honestly and openly with gay men and their lives, without putting them into a comedic mode."

Lombardo cited low ratings for axing Looking but he did reveal that the TV movie will begin production this fall. Hopefully the movie will answer questions from season two, such as, where is Lauren Weedman's goddamn Emmy nomination?
