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.

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.

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.

Can we please get a review that's based on the actual content of the product? You know ... if you shell out the money and buy it like you're supposed to. This is a great show. Edgy content, engaging storyline. Constantly towing the line between comedy and solid drama, and doing a good job of it at that. Duchovny puts on a consistently convincing performance of a good guy with some bad habits wading his way through a mid-life crisis. Admirable performances by the supporting actors and actresses. Highly recommended.

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.

This show is 100% pure awesome. You thought Duchovny was born to play Fox Mulder? Who knew he'd end up surpassing that role with Hank Moody, a flaky, laid-back and possibly washed-up writer who hasn't put pen to paper in years?

Season 3 begins with Hank making a stab at teaching writing in college. He runs into trouble with his student, his teaching assistant, and the Dean's wife. Hank and Karen't relationship remains complicated, and the acting-up of their daughter Becca matures into a new flavor of petulance. And every time Hank seems about to get things right, he finds a way to turn his life into a new and different kind of train wreck.

Hank's pal Runkle is headed for a divorce while working for one of the more memorable characters we've seen on this show - an extremely rough-edged and intimidating talent agent played by Kathleen Turner. Early in the season, Turner's voice and mannerisms seemed to me like too much, but by the end I thought she was a ton of fun. Runkle's soon-to-be-ex Marcie even gets to meet and greet her one-time idol, Rick Springfield. You know, the actual Rick Springfield from the 80s.

This show is smart, sexy, funny and even at times emotionally tender.
