TV Tip: Californication05 Jan 2008
Since I have a lot of time on my hands, with my pneumonia and all, I started looking at TV series I hadn’t seen yet. I borrowed the Sopranos DVDs, but I also tried out some ‘alternative distribution’ series. Supernatural is not really my thing, Jericho is OK, Weeds seems not bad at all, but my current favourite is definitely “Californication“.
David Duchovny heads up the cast in this comedy about a novelist with sex and drug addictions who is struggling to raise his daughter half the time, while having problems with his ex-girlfriend.
Duchovny jumps from one bed to the next, not bothered by any set of morals. Meanwhile he delivers some kick-ass one-liners. The ex is played by Natascha McElhone, who looks a lot like a girl I was once in love with, so that adds to the attraction. If you know how to get these things onto your hard disk: try out the first episodes and see if you like them!
