TV Review: Californication: Season 3, Ep. 1: Wish You were Here

Californication: Season 3, Ep. 1: Wish You were Here begins with slumber. I can not believe Hank (David Duchovny) fell asleep in “the temple” of Kristine (Kristine Blackport) during coitus, to her incredulous surprise. Being a single dad most truly be an energy draining, drastically so. Seeing him trying to talk himself out of that jam using his verbose descriptive skills should not have been as cool as it was, considering all of the on-screen nakedness, but it was. Hank later runs a guy off the road, Dean Stacy Koons (Peter Gallagher), then Dean Koons turns up at the head of a dinner party he attends. Hilarious. Love Californication. I hope this season is as good as the last two.

    I must watch this show. Everyone raves about it but I have never seen it!

  • Start with Season 1 so you have everyone's background.

    The show now officially sucks. The writing is atrocious, it is unacceptable for a program’s writing to be called into question when its central character is himself a writer. How can a series evolve into something special when it revolves around an author who speaks mostly in cliches, and never seems to deliver any effective, thought-provoking line? Are we to believe that the guy is so troubled he is utterly incapable of saying anything inspiring? I mean, I am not even a writer, but even I utter more expressive, stimulating thoughts in a day than Hank Moody (David Duchovny) does in one twenty-eight minute episode

    I have to admit I didn’t enjoy season 3 as much as the previous 2. Fortunately season 4 is off to an incredible start. The legal troubles Hank has gotten into have deepened the plot and the writing is back up to par. I haven’t been able to keep up on the current season as well do to a hectic schedule but luckily I am an employee/subscriber of DISH Network and with the TV everywhere app on my i-phone I can keep up with the latest of Hank’s antic’s on my lunch break. I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of this season as I hear Rob Lowe is slated to appear at some point as well.
