Scott Michael Foster,
"Californication" is a portmanteau of 'California' and 'fornication'. Its origin is bumper stickers in Oregon in the late 1970s and early 1980s that read "Don't Californicate Oregon". Red Hot Chili Peppers' 1999 album "Californication" sold over 15 million copies, and as of 2009 is their most successful record. See more »

I can't remember when I laughed so steadily from start to finish of a new show. Family Guy? Perhaps. In Californication Showtime has one of its strongest hits . . . ever. The writing is bitingly crisp, intelligent and fresh. Duchovny's delivery has the timing of a master comic actor and his portrayal of Hank is winning. As with the very best of comedies, beneath the bubbly surface of Californication is a show that in a single episode reveals richly drawn characters of depth and purpose. Hank's lecherousness, womanizing, wry wit and in-your-face bluntness succeed only partially in covering up a complex (or perhaps merely complicated?) man who appears to be facing all of his mid life crisis's at once. Every note in this comic symphony was perfectly struck and I look forward to getting to know Hank - and the rest of his gang - better as the weeks go by. Bravo Showtime!
