Californication: The Complete Series

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 11/18/15

I'd never watched this show before, even though I love David Duchovney. I'm glad I got this series now on DVD because it's really good. It's very funny. Seeing Duchovney as this screwed-up writer, Hank, is very entertaining.  In the hands of a lesser actor, Hank might seem very whiney. He's a middle-aged guy who drinks too much, takes too many pills, and has a lot of sex, while he complains about having writer's block and his girlfriend leaving him for another guy.  However, Duchovney makes him so likeable and self-destructive that you feel bad for him.

This is a Showtime show, so there's lots of sex and bad language. However, I don't think it's very graphic. It's very funny and has many great actors, including Evan Handler as Hank's agent Charlie.  There have been many series about self-destructive people, including House and Nurse Jackie, but Californication is one of the first, best and funniest shows of that type.

The DVD has all 84 episodes (all 7 seasons) and some great features. It's definitely worth the price. If you like a fun comedy-drama, try this one!
