Did You Know?


Hank Moody: Well, your breasts are obviously real... and... eh... you have an abundance of pubic hair, which is really nice and... eh... there's no evidence of vaginal rejuvenation. I'd say, aside from the fact that you worship a space alien, you just might be the most beautiful woman I've seen in a long, long time

"Hank hates you all..."
24 December 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The pilot of Californication was a very bold introduction to the controversial lifestyle of depressed writer Hank Moody. The follow-up, Hell-A Woman, which was heavily criticized for a very explicit (and somewhat disgusting) sex scene, continues in the same direction, with tons of lovable, foul-mouthed humor.

Whle trying to patch his life together, Hank gives in to Charlie's begging and accepts to be a blogger for Hell-A Magazine. Inevitably, his comments are acerbic and reflect his spiteful attitude ("I probably won't go down in history, but I will go down on your sister..."). Then again, Karen ignores his sentimental pleas, Mia keeps bothering him and the luckiest he can get is with a Scientologist (Paula Marshall). Poor fella.

Witty, filthy and deliberately provocative: the three main characteristics of Californication, and the three reasons it's so damn good. The script moves from one explicitly hilarious set-piece to another, relying on the light mood (pardon the pun) and Duchovny's cheerfully self-deprecating work. Brilliant.
