Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Sophisticated and unique, this comedy centers on novelist Hank Moody (David Duchovny) who struggles to raise his 13-year-old daughter, while still carrying a torch for his ex-girlfriend. His obsession with truth-telling and self destructive behavior -- drinks drugs and relationships -- are both destroying and enriching to his career.

Amazon.com

Through two seasons of Californication, "brilliant train wreck" and blocked author Hank Moody (David Duchovny, a previous Golden Globe winner and nominated again for this season) seemed pretty much unstoppable. But by the end of season 3, Hank might finally have to answer for his sins, and Hank keeps devising novel ways to sin, which makes him as infuriating a protagonist who has ever graced a TV series. "You're such a mess and you cause such chaos," one of his lovers tells him in the wake of an affair that has helped wreck a marriage, "but I wouldn't change anything." Say one thing for Hank's women: they are gracious to a fault. This season adds another tumultuous chapter to Hank's saga. After unwittingly pushing a celebrated writer and college professor off the wagon, Hank assumes his position at the university under--get this--Dean Koons (Peter Gallagher), and, predictably, proves to be an impolitic educator. Early on he discourages one idolizing student with near fatal results. As the season progresses, he will also indulge in extracurricular activities with a student and an emotionally vulnerable TA (Diane Farr). The limbo that is his home life is beginning to impact on his sardonic daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin), paving the way for the return of Karen (Natascha McElhone), who suggests the three return to New York. Meanwhile, Charlie and Marcie Runkle (Evan Handler and Pamela Adlon), now separated, are forced by the slumping housing market to share their house while their divorce is pending. Hilarity and much sex ensue. Making memorable impressions this season are Embeth Davidtz as the Dean's conquestable wife, Kathleen Turner as Charlie's foul-mouthed and sexually aggressive new boss, and Rick Springfield as a deranged incarnation of himself, who gets it on with Runkle's girl. Madeline Zima makes a fateful return as Mia, who stole Hank's book back in season 1. Her plan to tell all could shatter Hank's dysfunctional family for good. Extras include a blooper reel and a "Marcie's Pajama Party" segment in which Aldon dishes with LA divorcees, along with two season 4 episodes of The Tudors. --Donald Liebenson

I had watched the first couple of season and season 3 was just as good.

It shows what can really happen to people in real life.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Season 3 was at least as strong as Season 2, if not stronger, which is quite a feat of writing.

Duchovny is masterful throughout, and his stunning chemistry with his screen muse Karen, is the cornerstone of what has been an unparalleled series.

Yep, it's strictly adult entertainment, and it needs to be seen as, to paraphrase the beautiful Embeth Davidtz, a mockumetary of the crazy, no-consequence LA life that it is portraying. The show, from the beginning, has been a parody of itself, but it works.

As we go into Season 4, Hank will be facing some major challenges, partly due to his poor, reactive handling of the Mia situation in the Season 3 finale.

Interesting times ahead.

As a fan of the series up to this point I almost did not purchase this season via Video On Demand due to the negative reviews written here. Magically enough if you purchase the season or episodes you get the full pleasure of enjoying the series as it was meant to be viewed. It is not such a far stretch that Amazon would not allow a free viewing of a series with this sort of content without applying some sort of buffer to it...it was simply a courteous way to offer an insight into the direction of this season. If you like the show than purchase the season and it won't disappoint...if you are new to the show than start at season one...and in closing...don't complain about free.

What is one to make of the third season of Showtime's raunchfest about the misadventures of self-destructive author Hank Moody? Season three is full of the usual debauchery that has propelled the series, but at the same time it seems to be lacking the depth and heart that made the first two seasons so compelling. Don't get me wrong, this is still an enormously entertaining season, but it borders on farce as Hank juggles relationships with three women at the same time sans any signs of remorse and basically glides through season three without having to face any consequences for his actions--until a season finale that is essentially disconnected from the events leading up to it. It's all very complicated and frustrating and results in Californication's most uneven season to date. But there just may be a method to the madness.

Season three follows Hank as he takes a teaching job at a university which affords him plenty of opportunities to rail against the "establishment" and slice and dice the stuffiness of academia in general. Most of all, however, it provides him with the opportunity to get involved with a student, his T.A. (Diane Farr) and the dean's uptight wife. Hank tries to convince himself that he is acting in the best interest of all three of his extracaricular activity partners, but he ends up being quite reckless with all three. Interestingly, none of the women seem to be too upset with Hank even when he hides them from one another in the episode titled "The Apartment". The entire season seems to have this vibe: it's all fun and games and nobody (especially not Hank) is held accountable for their actions. Only Becca seems to be aware that most of the adults are acting like children.

This is the BEST series ever!!! I am addicted to this show and highly recommend it to adults 18 years and older due to adult language and situations. I do not miss an episode of this fantastic romantic comedy. David Duchovny is a sexy hunk of man that can't seem to help him self when it comes to flirting and hooking up with beautiful women. David has only one problem, he seems to forget that he has a teenage daughter living with him and a girlfriend, who is also the mother of his daughter. David is madly in love with his girlfriend Karen but he always seems to put his self in the wrong place at the right time! This is a must see show! You will become addicted after two shows...watch and see.

Halfway through Season 3 Amazon removed Californication from Prime. Must be some kind of ploy to get you to upgrade. Lousy move Amazon!

We enjoyed watching the first two seasons and after three episodes of season 3, it was not longer available on Prime. The show was very good however, I would prefer to have received notice before it was removed from Prime. Maybe then I would have been able to see all episode of season 3.

I really like this show. Unfortunately I can't finish it because amazon took it off the prime membership list. I guess they were getting a large viewing and decided to make more money. Way to go amazon.

All the hijinks you could want from Hank Moody in Californication's Season 3, the follow up to two other very good seasons. The farcical mistress juggling was great, though it could have used some real character development to balance the absurdity. It is lighter than previous seasons, but still worth watching.

The weird thing is, a couple of weeks ago, they put it up on Prime video then abruptly removed it 3 days later. What's up with that? Good thing I didn't have much to do at the time, so I just barely finished catching up on this season before it left, but it's a fun cable show people with Prime but no Showtime would like to see. Here's hoping it was just an error in timing, and it goes up again sometime in the future.

Californication - Season 3
All 4 seasons, ordered from Amazon, have bad video quality (excessive pixelation). It's rather shocking they didn't correct this obvious issue after the Season I dvd came out. Since each season comes on just 2 dvd's, it may be that they had to use very high compression to make all 12 episodes fit... Read More

"Any kind of english subtitles?"
Sadly, no. I don't have the season 3 set obviously (but iTunes just made season 3 available now, woohoo!) but I know the previous two seasons don't have subtitles but they have closed captioning. Which....I don't understand how some shows or movies have NO subtitles and NO closed captioning. I... Read More
