From Amazon.co.uk

Some people go all through their career without managing to land even one memorable role. Thanks to Californication, David Duchovny has now chalked up two. Yet Hank Moody is as far removed from The X-Files’ Fox Mulder as you can pretty much get. That’s because Moody is a successful author, only one with a real eye for the opposite sex. He’s a man caught in the midst of a troubled life, on one hand a father, on the other dabbling with the odd drink (to put it mildly). And it’s the complexity of the character that Duchovny clearly has a ball with, lifting Californication into must-see territory in the process.

A real show out of nowhere, Californication though has so much more going for it. The scripts veer between very funny moments and areas that other shows wouldn’t go anywhere near, while the supporting cast do ably up their game to keep up with the leading man.

The full first season of Californication is presented here, and it’s fair to say it leaves you salivating for more. An individual, entertaining and very funny show, this is one of those occasions where the hype surrounding a programme is there to be believed. Don’t miss it. --Jon Foster

Product Description

David Duchovny (The X Files) returns to our screens in the hilariously dark new comedy series, Californication. Bachelor Hank Moody (Duchovny) has almost got it made: he's a sexy, best-selling author, but his insatiable appetite for beautiful women often lands him in hot water. Every day, Hank finds himself in bed with another woman and two steps back from his ultimate goal – restoring his family. He wouldn’t mind reviving his writing career either, but as a part-time dad juggling his wild LA lifestyle with grown-up responsibilities, this "devil may care" writer is at a loss for words. From the very first episode, Hank sets the tone for the whole series. We meet him first in a church asking Jesus to help him get his life back on track, but he gets distracted by a hot nun, which turns out to be a dream that is representative of his lifestyle – he then goes on to have sex with a woman who is cheating on her enraged husband and a 16 year-old girl who he thinks is in college. This clever comedy also stars Natascha McElhone (Solaris) as Hank's ex-girlfriend, Madeleine Martin as Becca, his wise-beyond-her-years 12 year-old daughter and Evan Handler (Sex And The City)as Charlie, Hank's best friend and agent.

5.0 out of 5 stars BLOODY HELL 13 Jan 2008
By Mr. William Oxley VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
WHERE THE HELL DID THIS COME FROM???

A totally chaotic individual too scared to follow his talent pines for his lost love and shags his way around the city of LA. David Duchovny gives a masterful performance as a writer who has struck gold with his novel but having moved from NY to LA is now drinking himself into one bed after another. But he wants his family back together, loves his daughter and wants to love his hearts true love, which is now betrothed to another. The story is great, the acting is great, the content is explicit, and as the series title suggests most definitely adult only.

Bloody Brilliant!!!

A darkly brooding heroic character that is funny but pathetic. talented but empty, has found true love but loves many women, a contradiction but so true to life.

Be entertained by a really surprising show and masterful performance!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sex & The City For Guys and Girls 29 Oct 2008
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
For anyone who thought Sex & The City was too camp to watch (didn't The Simpsons describe it as a show about four women who act like gay men?), here is the grown-up, sassy and sexy alternative.

David Duchovny may be better known for the X-Files, but here he looks much happier, playing the blocked writer Hank Moody, living fast in LA, trying to win back his partner Karen (Natasha McElhone(?) and their daughter from a wealthy but dull publisher, Bill. Kinda reminded me of The Philadelphia Story, minus the class warfare.

This comedy is sharp, with crackling dialogue, very explicit, but in the best sense, adult. The title may sound gimmicky, but it tells you what you need to know: that this is a series about adult relations and the rights and wrongs attached to exercising our freedom to pursue casual relationships at the expense of greater and more meaningful ones.

Anyway, it's a winner, funny but serious. If you're eighteen or over, see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars sexy and clever 20 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
This show is what television can be, with the right writers and right actors combining to make it real. Outragious and bold from the very first scene, they never look back after the first dream sequence. And even though they go way over the top, the basic message of love and relationships remains intact. There is a lot of clever social commentary amongst a lot of fun loving living. My only gripe about this show is that it isnt an hour long!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty, Sarcastic and loadsa fun 23 Nov 2007
Format:DVD
It is great to finally have a show that doesn't hide behind taboo subject's. After years of playing the undervalued worker in X-Files, he gets a chance to say what a lot of people would love to say but refrain from it.
Being aware that certain groups find the show offensive in numerous ways, in
reality i really think they should lighten up, its not meant to be taken seriously. If anything it might let people get out of their shell. Its a feel good show which makes you chuckle all the way through! The music is really funky in it too

I totally recommend it to anyone over the required age cos u'll laugh your a*s off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great viewing - Well made 22 July 2009
Format:DVD
I wasnt sure what to expect from this but after watching the first 3 episodes I am hooked. Its a damning statement on the lives which a lot of us in the bigger cities live. There are no morals, there is no line, just one pleasure trip after another. And its funny!!!

If you liked Entourage, you will love this - Its Entourage + ;)

Good for a laugh on a weekday evening

5.0 out of 5 stars Californication = Awesome 10 July 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Have no fears - if you like a strong, witty, sexy comedy then this is for you. Californication is like a grown up version of The OC, focussing on the disfunctional life of Hank Moody (Duchovney) and how he copes with the break-up of his relationship. Whilst all this doesn't sound all that much like a comedy, it is conducted to the back-drop of his near addiction to alcohol and women, and the even more disfunctional city of LA and all the people in it - for a man with little to lose Hank is now intent on living life to the full and caring about the consequences second, all of which makes for a hilarious view on the man's life. Interestingly the show is surprisingly moral in places, especially around Hank's relationship with his estranged daughter, and this gives Californication something of a soul and stops it from being simply gratuitous in it's portrayal of Hank's roller-coaster life.
Without generalising I'd say men would probably like this more than women, but as mentioned the strong character relationships stop this from simplying being male fantsy and turn it into a credible, watchable series.
I give series 1 of Californication 9.5/10. Watch it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 1 Jun 2009
By S. Rand
Format:DVD
I'm not sure what made me decide to watch this show, because the premise of it doesn't sound that great. A washed up writer tries to sort his life out but generally fails at every turn. Doesn't sound that great does it? However, David Duchovny as Hank is absolutely excellent and the script absolutely crackles, it's so sharp.
This is very adult entertainment but it's extremely witty and clever. Much better than it sounds.

Well what can I say about this series that other people have not mentioned............,nothing! You have to buy it, I do not think I have cringed or laughed out loud so many times from watching a series. I love NIP TUCK, this is better by far. The character 'Hank' is so well written and the situations he gets involved in are a classic case of drama/comedy at it's peak. EPISODE 2 was genius in it's scenario presentation.

Bring on season 2..........., God I hope it runs for years to come. BUY BUY BUY BUY......WATCH WATCH WATCH.
