It's sad to see a great series like this one devolve into constant recycling of old themes and stock characters. Each of the first four seasons had their own unique vibe, something that sets them apart from the rest of the series.

Unfortunately, these last two seasons have just been rehashes of things we've seen before, but without nearly the same amount of pathos or character building. Also, Tom Kapinos and the rest of the writing team seem intent on outdoing the absurd antics of previous seasons, and while the show has always been farcical, it has reached the point where the preposterous goings-on elicit just as many groans as they do laughs.

Even David Duchovny seems bored with the part, and just goes through the motions with only a fraction of the charm and wit he imbued the character with in previous seasons. Don't think for a second I dislike it now, the show is still good, and it's better than 90% of anything else on TV today. However, it's fallen far from the dizzying heights of seasons 1-4.

The one thing that Season Six of Showtime's sex, drugs and writer's ennui sitcom CALIFORNICATION seemed to have going for it at its opening was the result of the almost-murder/suicide by one of Hank's many lovers (portrayed by Natalie Zea), and his resultant depression and alcohol-drenched daze he finds himself in after she dies.

It made me stop and wonder if perhaps the show might go slightly back to the roots that it laid for itself when Hank was still a pretty unlikable guy. That's what made the show such a wonderful thing in its opening season is that Hank Moody was not without charm and humor and heart, but at his essence he was selfish, immature, self-pitying and frustratingly childish. But, after about one episode, that idea is gone to make way for COMEDY! After all, it's not like this show feels like exploring the dark side of anything anymore. We have madcap rehab silliness, a "man pretending to be gay" story arc that is recycled from some of the worst rom-coms of the 90's, Hank begrudgingly writing a rock opera with a drug-crazed rock god, and, of course, a pornucopia of women willing to do anything with the men on this show for comic value.

In recent seasons though, all of those character flaws that define Duchovny's character have become virtuous and make him even more attractive to every other woman with the exception of Karen, the woman he actually does love. This season's primary paramour is that of Faith (LOST and TAKEN's Maggie Grace), a good girl gone bad that he meets in rehab for his alcoholism and drug addiction. Faith, a professional rock groupie and muse, is instantly annoyed with him, which of course means that she will end up falling for him in some way.

This is one of my favorite series, every year I wait for the season to start and devour the episodes, having many laughs in the process. In this season, we start with Hank waking up in a hospital after almost dying from the overdose Carrie administered him. The stint in rehab is interesting and provides us with many funny moments, but even more importantly, Hank runs into Faith, a mysterious young woman who seems to hate him on sight.

This season involves several different topics, rock stars, groupies, Becca's growing up and her hopes and interest in experimenting life, and a wacko that hates men among many others. We definitely are kept engaged throughout the season. There are a couple of cases in which the writers seem to be trying too hard to come up with new material that shocks the audience (i.e. Hank drinking his own urine), but overall they do a great job.

The aspect that left me a little disappointed is that no matter how much the story moves up down and sideways during the season, we always seem to end up in the same place, and that is getting a little frustrating. If you are fine with continuing with the status quo, then you will love this season, but if you are like me, you may be losing your patience a tiny bit and want the writers to get going already. I don't care which way they want the story to go, just make it go somewhere.

As you can see from my rating though, this series has so many aspects that are positive and better than everything else out there that I can't judge it too harsh when it's time to give it the final score. Still one of my favorite shows, but I wish they would exploit their abilities and made it even better.

Positive: Some episodes are excellent. The dialog is witty, the characters well defined, and the plots/subplots are usually good.

Negative: The writers after six seasons, have finally spelled out the true character of our hero: He is definitely not a writer, he is a hardcore alcoholic. And drug addict. Yes, he did in the beginning of the first season write a novel, maybe two. And since episode #1, he has written maybe three screenplays over the next five years. That does not constitute a productive writer. The only brilliance he displays is his fairly witty banter with other characters. It is false advertising to bill him as a talented writer. He is a drinker, not a writer. (Oh, when he does write screenplays, he drinks at the same time.)

Also, the series major plot of his trying to get back with his ex girlfriend & mother of his child, after six years is no longer romantic, it is pathetic. According to the storyline, they have been "together" for 20 years -- yet have never been able to make their relationship work. The storyline lacks believability when the main characters haven't moved on.

The writers had an excellent chance this season when they introduced Maggie Grace as a young, beautiful Muse -- the season could have ended on a high note. Instead, he dumps her to go back to his ex girlfriend (AGAIN!) -- who has never been his Muse and does not help him write. She only enables his drinking and sexual infidelity. This is a poor plot structure.

Maybe Season 7 (the final season) will be better. But don't hold your breath, the writers have run out of ideas.
