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?
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoWish You Were Here||Following Karen’s move to New York, Hank Moody does his best to raise daughter Becca by himself.

After a run-in with Chelsea’s straight-laced mother Felicia, a teacher at a local university, Hank reluctantly accepts a dinner invitation. Hank does his best to tolerate the various academics in attendance, including Felicia’s stuffy hubby Stacy Koons, the Dean of the university. Things get a bit out of hand when Hank insists on having drinks with a teetotaling professor… Meanwhile, Charlie moves back in with soon-to-be-ex-wife Marcy as they sort out the details of their impending divorce.

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
Best Show Ever, but not the best season
I loved Season Three, especially the finale. But Season Three simply does not compare to Season One or Two, although Episode Eight, "The Apartment" is one of the best of the entire series. Hopefully the writers will get back to basics in Season Four. The trailer, just released does look promising.
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.
