Writer Hank Moody tries to divide his life between career, the relationship with his daughter, the relationship with his ex-girlfriend and his attraction to beautiful women.
Californication is a well produced drama-comedy show. The funny dialogues, the alcohol abuse and Hank Moody's numerous love affairs are just a facade; they only spice-up the series. However, the important things in life, the things that matter and Californication tackles, are the father-daughter relationship (Hank Moody and Becca Moody) or dealing with emotions, feelings, temptations and situations that all of us encounter in our everyday lives. These everyday situations are handled in a rather funny note. The show is sharp, arrogant, funny, ironic, mature (although immature when it comes to Hank's approach to various circumstances, yet immature only in appearance for the situations that Californication deals with sure engage serious debates).
Starring David Duchovny, Califorication is a series that you can hardly imagine. It is truly an out of the box show, and you have to see it to understand what I mean. If you have no idea about this series, then go watch it, it is very good and entertaining.
Hank, the writer, brilliantly played by David, is totally different from the X Files investigation agent we got used to. Here, Duchovny is rarely both feet on earth; smoking and drinking all the time, not caring about other people opinions, engaging in phrenetic sex and being envied by his friends for this, flirting with every chick that flirts back, getting tattoos when drunk, sleeping dressed, rarely bathing. He is a perfect anti-hero. But all these make the show be truthful and mostly great played.
Califorication is one absolutely a nonconformist series and those who are not followers of such a story will contempt it. However, I strongly encourage you to give Californication a chance; you might just like it more than you think.
The Californication series tells the story of a Moody, an almost failing writer that leads a boisterous life in all aspects. Experiencing a typical case of writer's block Moody destroys his life as he becomes addicted to alcohol, drugs and most of all sex. Despite having a beautiful girlfriend and a very long lasting relationship with the woman he loves, he never managed to quite grow it into a family due to his inability to be constant. However, love is still the only element that keeps him alive. He is a good example of the chaotic element that lays in all of us.
After many failed attempts at rehabilitation, Moody decides to prove to the most important two women in his life, Karen and their daughter Becca, that he is still able to do something with his life. He gets to write the biography of Lew Ashby, one of the most respected music producers in the world. He also becomes a teacher but that doesn’t prevent him from engaging in a series of relationships with both students and colleague teachers. Unfortunately for him, this brings nothing but trouble in his life. In contrast, Karen is a famous architect who knows what she wants, but her love for Hank is more of a problem most times.
The crazy, unrestricted part of Moody life story is complemented by his agent and friend, Charlie Runkle, a man as chaotic and unstable as he is. Charlie is a professional, but falls to temptation as any man or probably more since this leads to a failed marriage and all sorts of crazy situations.
I recommend Californication wholeheartedly not only because of the interesting story, but also because it's full of humor and very entertaining.

Summary: Review Californication
Review: Last time David Duchovny starred in a TV series, it was in \"The X Files\", a series in which his character, FBI agent Fox Mulder, wanted to believe in the existence of aliens and was constantly investigating strange events. Itâ€™s safe to say that Duchovny managed to redefine the mythology surrounding alien life with the \"The X Files\" television series. Much has changed since the days of \"The X Files\", but Duchovny is back on TV starring a series that could easily be categorized as soft-core porn by some. Nevertheless, â€śCalifornicationâ€ť is one of the best TV series in a long time despite the fact that it depicts a lot of naked women and David Duchovny playing a bitter writer full of self-hatred, and always chasing attractive women while never staying shy of alcohol. In Californication, Duchovny plays Hank Moody, a writer from New York who has written a book on how \"God hates us all\". His book is a success, and Hank moves to Los Angeles to see it made into a movie. Based on his book, the movie \"Crazy Little Thing Called Love\" is also a success but the writer hates it. However, Hankâ€™s real problem is not with LA, the entire world and God but his ex-girlfriend. Hank is still madly in love with Karen, played by Natascha McElhone. Together they have a daughter 12 years, Becca, played by Madeleine Martin. Because Hank hesitated to ask Karen to marry him, she decided to choose Bill Lewis (Damian Young). But Hank wants Karen back. Unshaven, surly, drunk and doing drugs, he stays in the City of Angels, a city he hates. As he is listening to people who like the movie that distorted the book, constantly in pain for being kept out of Karen and Beccaâ€™s lives, Hank is experiencing a writerâ€™s block that further takes him into a depression. Hankâ€™s life is a failure of massive proportions and the series manages to follow him struggling to come to surface. Verdict: The beauty of this series lies in the realistic situations, not even remotely resembling typical romantic dramas. Hank does not cry on the phone or walks lonely on the beach. He needs to wake up to life, to overcome his failures and try to win back his family.
