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
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?
just sex & drunken debauchery. Like character development & intelligence lurking beneath stupid actions.
Season 3 was the nadir. The absurd school teacher plotline of Hank's affairs w/ stripper student, TA, & head of college all at the same time was idiotic. Then Rick Springfield & Kathleen Turner really made things worse. Season 4 was a bit better, & now Season 5 is about the same as 4. Except the sparkle is gone. The 2 - 3 years Hank was supposedly back in NYC are skipped over completely (& that might have added some fresh ideas). Instead, he goes right back to LA where everything is pretty much the same. This time-jump is handled in a sloppy manner, as if the producers just don't care.
How many more times do we have to see Charlie Runkle walk around bare-ass naked, or jerking-off to porn? How many times do we have to see him having sex w/ ridiculously beautiful women half his age? He would have to be a major movie director to pull that off, not just an agent w/ a nice house. Tom Kapinos has gotten into a rut like Judd Apatov with catch-phrases. The first time you hear "man-gina" it's kind of funny, but the 10th time, not so much. Rapper "Samurai" doesn't add much to the proceedings beyond a vague, stupid plot-device about Hank writing his "Santa Monica Cop" movie. Amazingly, it's actually a relief when Rob Lowe's character reappears toward end of the season. Marcy's marriage to Hollywood producer is boring, un-funny & sometimes just gross to observe...
I still watched the season because the Hank Moody character is still a funny screw-up.Read more ›
