"Hank hates you all..."
24 December 2008 | by 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.
