Californication

11 December 2008 5 Comments

I guess you can call this a review of the show, but I’d really appreciate it if you didn’t call it that. I hate formal reviews. Now, if you haven’t seen the show you’re missing out, if you haven’t heard of the show you’re not from this world. Now the best way I can describe this Showtime masterpiece is ‘sex, drugs, and rock & roll of the 00s’. (Is it 2000s or 00s. Bah, what’s the difference). The show is about Hank Moody (David Duchovny) who moved to LA with his girlfriend and daughter only to lose her to another man, have his writing career get flushed down the shitter, and engage in senseless sex and self-loathing dread. Sounds pretty depressing, but it’s not all that bad. In the latest season it looks like some of the shite he’s been doing might get him back on track, but then he goes right ahead and finds new ways to fuck himself over—like going down on someone he ‘thought’ was the one and only love of his life, Karen. It’s hard to imagine how someone can mix his sex partner up at a party, but shite happens.

Writer’s Block

I guess what I like most about Moody’s character is that he is one of the smoothest talkers I’ve ever seen on screen. He plays an author in the show, so him being a writer and all, he can talk his way out of or into anything. An analysis of Moody would make a good post in my Get Women series, but if you really think about it, an analysis of him would just end up being all of those posts (plus some) put into one, because he’s probably one of the biggest ladies men out there. Yes, I know he’s a fictitious character, but even still, his antics are flawless in the field of women. Another thing that’s great about him is that he’s so careless in so many aspects that it just makes him a free man in more ways than one. He tends to say what he thinks, do what he wants, fight who he can, fuck who will want him, and he does it in the most immature way. I think that’s something that many people tend to lose in their everyday life. They try so hard in their years as teens to act older and more mature that when they’re actually grown they end up taking life too seriously. I’ve mentioned in a different post that we should really get off our arses and enjoy life. And I’ll admit that being mature about every issue is just plain fucking boring and sad.

Anytime, Anywhere

Hank Moody’s life-views don’t include waking up, going to work 9-5, coming home to crash on the sofa, then go back to sleep to look forward to another routine day. I know it’s television and all so they have to have exciting lives, but if you really think about it his life is pretty do-able. Well, for a writer that is. So hopefully I’m in luck, of course if you like my shite that is, otherwise, it’s 9-5 for my arse. Another thing that Moody is good at is finding women wherever he goes. He’s just so fucking cool about it, which makes it great. That’s another thing I wanted to mention… guys, be on top of your game wherever you are because there are pretty ladies who want some attention anywhere you go. Just don’t be over enthusiastic when you see a sexy lady walking around in the day time, sometimes they just wanna be on their way and aren’t looking to be picked-up. Try to be friendly and funny and see if they catch on, if they don’t, well just move on, because your 12 O’Clock lunch break is almost over. Moody is great at getting women almost everywhere he goes, and if you wanna pick up some extra ideas on how he comes about doing so, check out the show.

Cheers!

    @ Attah, I agree, but I’d also add Dexter to the mix. Other than that the tele is quite useless.
