Showtime is a great network for the perverse, the addicted, and the hideously disgusting.
In other words, it’s the Vegas of television networks.
David Duchovny plays Hank Moody who is described as “the writer that doesn’t write.” After a few hit books, Moody is tapped out and now spends his days dealing with teenage daughter, Becca, and ex-girlfriend (Becca’s mom) Karen. Also along for the ride are Hank’s agent and best friend, Charlie Runkle, and Charlie’s wife (and Karen’s best friend) Marcy.
Here is where it gets interesting.
The show focuses on sex and drugs, to put it plainly. Sex is a main point in their lives, and they’ve all experimented with just about every drug out there. See? Just like Vegas.
I first saw Californication at the request of my Aunt Shari, who said I absolutely needed to see it. I watched the first episode and it immediately became my new favorite show. First response however? It features young actress Madeline Zima.
Yeah, well, in her first episode of Californication, Zima, whose character name is Mia Lewis, seduces Hank Moody (Duchovny) and has sex with him. (Yes, we see her breasts.) After this event, it is revealed that Mia Lewis is actually an underage teenager and the daughter of Hank’s ex Karen’s new fiance.
My response? GRACIE SHEFFIELD! GET OFF OF FOX MULDER!
This chick is hi-larious. She runs her own wax salon, and is a foul-mouthed, cocaine-addicted firecracker who has me laughing non-stop week after week.
I’ve been sitting here, cruising YouTube, trying to figure out which clips of this amazing show I want to use. So, I’ve decided that if you are interested in seeing Hank Moody in action (and he really is a riot. Seriously. In my opinion, Duchovny plays this character wayyy better than he played that stuff shirt Agent Mulder), you can YouTube him and his craziness. These videos? All Marcy. Enjoy.
