Trivia

David Duchovny's X-Files co-star Gillian Anderson often wondered and even publicly questioned Duchovny about why she was never asked to be a guest on Californication. She often mentions how she would have been glad to appear on the show even for free and how fun it would have been if her appearance was an in-joke. As an example of this, she jokingly mentioned the idea of playing a stripper dressed for Duchovny's character, Hank Moody, as Scully. See more »

awesome new duchovny series
22 July 2007 | by smokeonit1See all my reviews

i really loved the pilot!

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.
