Have you seen those adverts for California? "A lot of people have misconceptions about California... ner, ner, ner, ner ...come to California." Don't you chuffing hate `em?
If the answer is yes you may sympathise with Hank Moody (David Duchovny) the main protagonist of Californication.
Hank- Idealistic, disenfranchised, New York Novelist, is struggling with writers block after being dragged to L.A. for an artistically worthless movie option on his book, his struggles have been galvanised into a true crisis of faith, through having been left by his long term partner, the fragrant Karen (Natascha McElhone ). Who is now co-habiting (with their daughter) with a reliable, high status, dull-ard.

Hank reacts to this crisis by releasing his raging id and indulging in all the artistic and L.A.-centric clichés of excess which his cult fame allows, to various funny, gross, and awkward results. His one true source of well being is his 13 year old daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin) who can roughly be described as Hanks common sense ego reminding him of his truly important role as father, as he try's to "win back" her mother Karen. Karen in turn represents a romanticised view of Hanks past life, his creativity and an idealisation of Love its-self.

You could describe Californication as "Sex and the City for men", but you would be wrong, in many ways it is it's opposite, Hank hates the city he lives in, he doesn't strive to find the perfect partner but longs to reconcile his past romantic life, his crisis seem more urgent, comic, and libidinous, and some how more honest.

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!!!

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!

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!!

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.

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.
