Californication, Season 3HDTV-MAClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


This season on Californication, Hank Moody’s (David Duchovny) life, like the economy, is officially turned upside down. The lack of writing assignments forces him to get a “real” job as a college professor while trying to keep wild child Becca (Madeleine Martin) on the straight and narrow with Karen (Natascha McElhone) still working in New York. Can he learn to keep “regular” hours and inspire the next generation of scribes? First, he’ll have to stay on the right side of the dean of students (Peter Gallagher), the dean’s wife (Embeth Davidtz) and a teacher’s assistant (Diane Farr) who’s immune to his charms… Meanwhile, Charlie’s (Evan Handler) returned to the mainstream -- he’s ditched the porn world for a job at a legitimate agency. His only problem is a boss/agency head (Kathleen Turner) who’s more interested in him than her clients (hello, Rick Springfield!). It would all be manageable with Marcy (Pamela Adlon) by his side, but she’s still bitter over his affair and is even back on the dating scene, which is further complicated since the two are platonically sharing the house – who can afford a divorce in a recession?

Yes Yes Yes!

Hank Moody is a king among men. This show is so funny and Duchovny was meant for this role. A must buy for sure

californication season 3

I loved the first season. I thought it was creative and really well written and the characters were believable. I liked the second season a lot. But I'm somewhat disappointed by the third season. It's just more of the same over and over. They get together, they break up, they are sort of together. The reasons why they keep doing the same things over and over (while any other human would have given up a long time ago) gets dry and feels like leftovers. Also. one last gripe; if, as Hank says, he "does it" because he loves all women, then why is he always hooking up with stereotypically good looking 20 something white women? There are a ton of beautiful and really cool women of color, older women, and yes, heavier women. Maybe if he hooked up with some of them the plot line would be more interesting. Or what if he ditched Karen finally and went off on a different but interesting story line. The best episode is the last one, of course, with an interesting cliff hanger.

Season 3 and 1 are my favs

This is one of the only real, raw, brave shows out there (despite a few terrible actresses). Season 1 got me watching, but season 3 was the strongest, imo. It gave more weight to the characters. If you're in a major city, you'll identify with this show's bold, honest depiction of the kind of fishtank we're living in. If you're in a small town, it'll articulate the vast majority of your fantasy lives (whether you explicitly admit to them or not) and tear down the glamor.

Great show.
