Another excellent installment in the life of Hank Moody
25 October 2007 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

The third episode of "Californication" is another quality piece of adult television from Showtime. Hank continues to behave in a manner that can only be described as outrageous while his agent, Charlie (Evan Handler), finds that his secretary isn't all she seems.

Without a shadow of a doubt, this is the most pleasant surprise to come out of the US this year. Duchovny is simply brilliant in this show and delivers every line with supreme comic timing. In fact, all the cast are extremely watchable and the production values for the series are through the ceiling.

The scenes of debauchery are less in this episode but it remains a show for mature viewers. This is no-nonsense adult material that is refreshingly honest.

It's great to have a series like this to look forward to every week!

9 out of 10.
