Californication: Season 3, Ep.3: Verities & Balderdash. Front and center this episode was Jackie (Eva Amuri). “See that is a prime example of what is wrong with the younger generation. You leave nothing to the imagination. So you’ve got yourself some boobs. Some big, round, nice boobs.” This is what is great about Hank Moody (David Duchovny). What is on the male mind comes right out of his mouth. No politcially correct filter. Californication: Season 3, Ep.3: Verities & Balderdash houses one of the most “entertaining” dream sequences you will ever see on a cable television show. I have seen Showgirls, Striptease, and Powder Blue and I believe this brief dance sequence in Verities & Balderdash beats all three.
Watching Hank sweet talk and drop his guard was cool as was Becca Moody (Madeleine Martin)’s examination of her home life and her effect on her parents’ lives. Hank is not perfect but he certainly knows how to make women feel special when he puts his mind to it. Can not believe he passed on Jackie (“With just the tiniest bit of effort you could have had some one much younger and much hotter but better luck next time teach”) but the again he did not really try.
