Originally I missed Californication when it aired on Channel 10 in
Australia, however all my friends and colleagues were raving about
this entertaining series about a middle age "womaniser" who was
caught between a rock and a hard place. They told me to watch it, I
declined and now I'm finally seeing what the fuss was about... and
boy was I stupid for missing it the first time.
Starring David Duchovny (X-Files) as Hank Moody, a one-hit wonder
novelist who is still attempting to live in the fast lane but is
also juggling being a part-time father and also likes to play the
dating game. Torn between his need to be a father and also his
ex-partner Karen (Natascha McElhone), Hank's life is far from
After Karen's betrayal of Hank, he has turned to sex and more
specifically married woman as he plans to vindicate this betrayal.
This new life for Hank is also impacting his ability to write a new
novel and is effecting his estranged relationship with his daughter.
compound the situation, he still has feelings for Karen that truly
makes this one of the most witty, entertaining and inspiring comedy
series of the year that we would highly recommended to those who
have missed this series the first time on TV, it's priceless! With
all the quirkiness of Seinfeld and the love life of Sex and the
City, Californication is about how we portray life and how we arrive
at our destinations, intended or not.
Great picture quality and audio quality, Californication also comes
with the original pilot plus some great commentary and interviews to
neatly round up this presentation. Depending on which version you
purchase, you even get a complimentary g-string!
