only twelve to go...
23 January 2016 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

End of Season 6, 72 down, only 12 to go, running out of my CALIFORNICATION fix. A modern classic. They broke the mold after making this. It's not going to happen again. You mark my words. I'll come back to this page if I'm proved wrong. I don't think I will be.

As for the episode, I also never thought there'd be someone who could tip the scale against Karen. Then came Faith. Faith was around for most of the season, though not all episodes, but all I can say... I am charmed! Enchanted! I am a Maggie Grace fan for life!

Had I been Hank, I'd have stayed on that bus. Sorry, Karen, and all awe to Natascha, but, gee...

I've seen at Den of Geek that the author there reckons this season to be nonsense, just whimsy. Okay, putting in that way, perhaps, but do not put this season down. At the start of it I had misgivings whether CALIFORNICATION would remain virtually at the top of my list* as my favorite piece of film ever, but it has sailed through. I feel to even mention that I generally felt WTF would pay to see that little **** Atticus Fetch on stage, but after this episode, I think lots of people might have paid to see that little **** Atticus Fetch on stage!

(*Die-hard BUFFY fan, you'd never get me off that. Third is NIKITA. The proposed, canceled Showtime project FAITH could well have been my Number One, so I'm sad about that stillborn loss)

If you've never seen CALIFORNICATION, you are very fortunate. The full experience still awaits. That is enviable, dude... Go for it!
