Californication follows the trials and tribulations of writer Hank Moody, played by David Duchovny. Hank drinks, does drugs, gets far more women than he should, alienates his friends, and somehow shambles on through life without managing to pick a direction. He should be a terrible character, but in fact he's a delight to watch, mostly because Duchovny produces a career-best performance.

This new season opens with Hank facing the consequences, good and bad, of his actions in the first season. He had a one-night stand with a young woman called Mia, who turned out to be the teenage daughter of his ex-girlfriend's fiancé. This inspired him to produce his first book in years based on the event, which Mia promptly stole and passed off as her own. Mia threatened Hank with the consequences of his technically-illegal night with her, and he had to watch as Mia was feted as a great new writer, including a big movie deal. Season three closed with all this coming to light, and this new season opens with the shock of Hank swiftly being arrested and charged with statutory rape. On the upside, the movie company now want Hank to write the script. On the downside, Hank's family are utterly hurt and betrayed by his actions. On the upside, the pretty young actress playing Mia in the movie wants to do some very personal "research" with Hank. And so on.

As usual, Hank's life is a total rollercoaster, and much of the season sees him trying to reconcile with his family, doing some serious soul-searching, in amongst the chaos and partying that he seems unable to avoid. This is a real improvement on season three, and shows a real attempt to recapture the genius of the first season.

This show manages to pack in more laugh out loud moments than any other I've seen in many a long year. Despite the never ending barrage of hot women that throw themselves at Hank, this still seems fresh and the characters are eternally loveable. I'd say I enjoyed this series more than 3. Plus for the chaps it had the very lovely Carla Gugino in it!

If you enjoyed the previous series you will love this. I can't wait for series 5 (although I'm filled with some trepidation as the ending to 4 does feel like a natural conclusion to a fine program).

This is a great season and highly recommend, however my advice would be to stop after this if you havent seen season 5, unfortunately the series runs out of ideas completely by then and becomes mediocre but I also say this as the ending to season 4 would have been the perfect ending to finish this once great programme off

Moody is back, providing me quotes and wisdom, laughter, tears and frankly a hell of a time. Fans have to buy this anyway. PS: This is THE season for Runkle - this man is on fire! :)

When I started watching the first series, I wasn't sure whether this wasn't just some veiled soft porn vehicle. It got a bit silly in the second series but by series 3 I was hooked again as the characters moved out of the slightly cliched corner and it's right in your face. I've never laughed so much before Kathleen Turner's character. Hats off for this once all over the world revered sex symbol to strut her stuff in the way she does it in here.

Just buy it, buy it, buy it. The script is excellent and David Duchovny plays the role superbly. I rave about this show.

Series One was fresh and very good partly for that reason. Series Two was same as and so not so fresh, same as Series Three, same as Series Four. Hank has messed up so many times! It's become ridiculous, caricaturish (perhaps that's the idea, but it's stopped working for me). It doesn't hang together, as neither does Karen having forgiven him so many times. Even after the statutory rape trial he's still the same, perhaps even worse, and so it's become irritating, his character has become irritating. It feels like the writers hit on a winning formula in Series One and stuck with it as a cash cow. There's been zero character development.
