Californication: The Complete Series
Review by Suzanne Lanoue
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!
