Episode cast overview:
Becca Moody (credit only)


Now that Charlie is single, he wants casual sex and lots of it. He asks Hank to go to a gym with him so he can get in perfect shape for the ladies and Hank reluctantly agrees. At the gym they meet an old fling of Hank who's still angry with him because he didn't call her back about a year ago. Nevertheless, the three of them end up at Hank's place where Hank just wants to go to sleep, but, because the girl won't have sex with Charlie unless Hank participates, they start a threesome. Meanwhile, Karen and Marcy go out together, get drunk and Marcy tells Karen Hank bought her a ring. Written by Marco van Hoof <>

"That sexy little smurf..."
10 January 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Ah, back to business: one of those episodes where the sex scenes are likely to upset someone. Remember the filthy dream in the pilot and the sex-and-vomit bit in the second episode? There's a very peculiar threesome in this one that's right on par with those two moments. Explicit, maybe, but also tremendously fun.

The threesome derives from Charlie's desperate attempts to get laid, now that he's moved in with Hank in order to get over Marcy's lesbian affair (although, as Hank points out, Charlie had an affair with the same person first). While at the gym, they meet one of Hank's countless exes, and since he can't remember her he gets beaten up in a boxing ring (you see, she's a boxer). The situation evolves in the aforementioned way, and while the guys have fun, Karen and Marcy get drunk together and think about their relationships. Oh, and Dani approaches Mia about a novel she's written (get the hint?).

As always, there's plenty of fun to be had, be it because of the dialogue, the painfully hilarious climax (pun intended) of the central sex scene or simply Duchovny's laid-back performance. In this case, however, a special mention goes to all of the female cast, who get a lot more meat to chew on this time around. Quite fitting, then, that The Devil's Threesome is directed by none other than John Dahl, the neo-noir genius who made Linda Fiorentino a star with The Last Seduction and gave American cinema a whole new breed of femme fatale. Of course, there's no noir in Californication, unless you count Mia's cunning scheme to rip off Hank...
