David Duchovny is hilarious as Hank Moody, a vice-addled writer struggling to balance his roller-coaster career, lingering feelings for his ex-girlfriend Karen, and fatherhood to his precocious daughter, Becca. Oh, and more sex than he knows what to do with.
Californication isn't for everyone. It's often crass, almost every adult on the show is amoral to some degree, and there's copious amounts of sex, drugs and alcohol to go around. But it's also brilliantly funny, expertly acted and filled with a ton of heart. And as the lead, Duchovny easily slips out of Fox Mulder's skin and into Hank Moody's without missing a beat.
I absolutely love this show, and can't wait for season two to begin. I recommend it for anyone looking for a thoroughly enjoyable show that'll keep you entertained from start to finish.
