TV’s Golden Age – Californication

Califonication is the funniest TV show out there, it’s also one of the saddest if you come to think about it, but will not leave you bitter, it has this somehow optimistic way of turning everything around; it’s basically a story about a man that has been genetically “programmed” to be great: he’s handsome, he’s smart, he’s funny, he has it all but he also has this super auto destructive personality that makes him fuck up every single day.

"It's not your fault. I'm like fly paper for the emotionally disturbed."
“It was the best of times, if only someone had told me.”
“You can’t snort a line of coke off a woman’s ass and not wonder about her hopes and dreams, it’s not gentlemanly.” (Hank Moody)
You know when you love somebody in spite of all the reasons that should make you not love him?! Because no matter how many times he fucks up he’s so damn charismatic and everything he does comes from a good place, everybody knows this big jaded man child and can’t help but be smitten with him. That’s Hank Moody. David Duchovny is Hank  Moody, I could never see somebody else playing this character ever again, he’s witty, stupid and handsome and he’s surely  gotten better with age. 
I guess both the tragedy and awesomeness with Hank is that’s not like everyone else. It must be hard to be an original and live in defiance of the world and its rules.

You will also love at least two other characters: Charlie Runkel (Hank’s agent) and his wife Marcy. I know I do. They will make you laugh like you never did before.

This is not a TV series for prudes, the jokes are wonderfully dirty and there’s a lot of sex, drugs and alcohol but I promise you it’s only the best kind.
Banter is this show’s salt and pepper, the script is so witty and hilarious, I can’t help by feeling that every single episode is way to short. Californication = 4 seasons of awesomeness!!!

GOT IT?:))))))))))))))))

Interested? Have you seen it yet?

I've seen only 2 seasons of it, but you're right! It's somehow hilarious with a touch of "je ne sais quoi", but also very touching... Not my type of man that's right :D, but the way he treats his daughter... speechless... simply lovely... And with that, he makes me want that kind of person near by me and my kids ;) haha!!! I never tought I'd talk about Hank so nice :)) So, YES, this is definitely a TV show to watch! IOANA P.

Ioana - I've just seen the last episode (from the 4th season), it was epic, you have to see the rest of the seasons, I need more Hank groupies in my life. I agree it would be a total nightmare to actually love somebody like him in real life but as it’s all fictional I get to enjoy all the drama with none of the scars!:) Win – Win!:)

Boheme - also in my top 10 favs!

Sacramento - if you have the chance go for it, you'll never look back!:)
