Californication- the show

Postby RyanK » Sun Nov 11, 2007 4:14 am

anyone here seen or heard of this show? its on showtime

It stars david duchonany (dude from xfiles) as a washed up writter whose wife left him buth es still in love with her.

its good on all levels, and very well written. A lot of sex and profanity though, i heard talk that it might not be allowed to make a 2nd season.

I'm a pretty big fan of this show, it definitely has an edge that many other shows lack. I hope it comes back for a second season. What reasons did you hear for the show not coming back for a second season? I've never heard someone say flat-out that they didn't like it. I can't really remember a bad or even average episode.

Weeds and Californication are a great combo.

I wish I had Showtime and HBO. I feel that I'm missing out on some good TV. :-C

I just got done watching the first season on DVD. Will watch the second season as it airs.

Based on all the negative press (mostly non-U.S.) about it being irreverent, I was expecting something different. I was pleasantly surprised. The show doesn't really push the envelope as much as people suggested it did. The plot is rather generic and leaves some to be desired. But the Bukowski-inspired Hank Moody character is pure brilliance and will keep me watching for that reason alone.

I am disappointed that Hank and Karen get back together. We'll see how it works but Hank just seems like a character that needs his tragedy to work. I'm not sure the whole rehabilitation thread we'll have the same allure.
