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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far and away the best show on TV! November 13, 2012
I can't talk about this show enough. It's just genius. The dialog pacing is flawless and the humor timing is spot on.
Seriously, David Duchovny is Perfection! David Duchovny's delivery has the timing of a master comic actor and his portrayal of Hank is winning.

This show has it all. It has made me laugh, cringe, smile, cry, and yes, best of all, kept me thinking about each episode long after the credits have rolled.
This is a David Duchovny showcase and he is iconic but Natacha (Karen), Madeleine Martin (Becca), Pamela Adlon (Marcy) and Evan Handler (Charlie Runkle) are AWESOME too. And I'm in love with Stu too.:) Season Five is my favorite because this show is getting better and better each season. I loved RZA (Samurai Apocalypse) and Megan Good. I've never laughed so hard.

The soundtrack is epic.

Lots of gratuitous sex and drugs and rock and roll and hilarious situations. LOL

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesomeness September 19, 2012
This series is amazing, and show time gives it a new spin each season, keeping us on our toes on how this will all come together. I think this is one of the best series out right now and I hope it lasts as long as possible. I want to see a good story from the series, and I haven't lost any interest yet. Californication live strong...

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Season! December 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
This show is so tantalizing, funny, naughty, and damn right ridiculous. Once again the writers have given the viewers a roller coaster ride of a a season, and boy what a climax in the last episode. I can't wait for season 6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fugget the Critics~ December 22, 2012
I almost decided against buying this season because of the critical reviews on here... then I realized I could buy an episode to stream and see what I thought. I ended up buying them all! This season is great! I just love it! The relationships between characters are some of the most real, riveting, challenging, honest, surprising, and keenly observed I've ever seen! Duchovny delivers his unparallelled and constantly revelatory performance as Hank with all the skill and timing of a master. The supporting characters are the punctuation that breathe infinite life into the story line. Bravo!

2.0 out of 5 stars Season 5.. yeah... I watched it... December 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
It was the worst season yet. Tired and lazily written. Seasons 1 though 4 were edgy, funny and always seemed to have a creative direction.

This was chocked full of homie slang and thuggery, boring twists and lots of yawns.

Don't get me wrong... it had the potential for greatness when Hank got seated next to such a beautiful woman on the plane. Things could have progressed in a very different and interesting direction. But they didn't.

Later that day, they conveniently meet up at the thug rapper's mansion. "Oh, you again?" What a coincidence.


There are so many more story lines in which Hank's character could have been introduced to such a woman other than the tired "watch out for my angry, jealous, gang banger, criminal boyfriend who hired you". As if there aren't any other interesting black guy character types.

The ending was so terrible I couldn't believe I watched it completely.

Hey... it's just a show right? A premium show that I spent hard earned money to buy. I choose what I spend that money on and if Hollywood wants to keep getting that money... I'd recommend putting a little more thought and effort into this stuff.

Huge fan... but this season was a real let down. You feel me G?

I find this show fascinating, and at times depressing. I just got around to watching season 5, and there have been changes in the lives of the characters. Looking forward to finishing it!

4.0 out of 5 stars I love it and I hate it December 26, 2012
By mar007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First and foremost I must say that I watched this season, in its entirety, in one sitting, as people are wont to do in this modern age. That being said, I think this season was a season of new beginnings for Hank Moody. I loved the time passing between season 4 and season 5. I believe the Mia (sp?) arc had run its course (the fans of the show know what I'm talkin 'bout). My beloved series needed a revitalizing shot in the arm. However, I am a human being, and change is hard for me. So, not everything about this season was as charming as previous yearly installments. There are several moments that jar me, but not quite enough to disrupt my suspension of disbelief. Old side stories continue, but the new side stories (nanny and Kali, fo sho) did not charm me, to say the very least.
I will say that this season is not without its charm. The revisiting characters, themes, and tropes (oh my) are what keep me coming back. More Moody? Yes please.
(***Oh so minor spoiler) On a final note, this season like the previous seasons does not give Hank the happily ever after he claims to want so dearly. Instead, it gives him merely a glimpse of the house with the white picket fence. Oh well. There's always next year to see how deep the rabbit hole goes. Pour me another whiskey, bartender (top shelf, please).
