Hank Moody- a self loathing, narcissistic author struggles to overcome writers block while balancing his occasional drug use, alcoholism, and borderline sex addiction all the while trying to get back together with his girlfriend and raise his teenage daughter. Written by
"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 »
All iPhones are clearly not being used for calls when characters have telephone conversations using them. Sometimes they are clearly on the home screen of the phone or on the dial pad of the phone--not mid phone call. See more »
That was some very intense and powerful lovemaking.

Not a big fan of that term, lovemaking, making love. I prefer boning, stuffing, shtupping, banging, porking, boffing, anything. Take your pick. Just not lovemaking.
So much for the afterglow.

duchovny comes across very authentic as a writer in his midlife crisis. divorced and unhappy the daughter suffers the most under the separation. for my part it wonder if the classification as a comedy is right... it's very sarcastic... there's some scenes that are funny but most of the time it's more a drama than comedy...
the series has a lot of potential and it's not a 100% clear where it might take us if it gets picked up. let's hope showtime has the guts to give duchovny a chance to show of his talent. for my part i loved his performance and that it would be good thing to have him back on a TV series.
