Last night I watched the season 3 finale of Californication, a TV show about the misguided deeds of writer Hank Moody, played by David Duchovny.
The show is vulgar to the point of obscenity, with Hank getting himself into one bad situation after another, almost always with women, despite his love for his teenage daughter and her mother. Californication is pervertedly funny but always tragic.
The season 3 finale was no exception, rather it was the culmination of a number of bad choices Hank has made since his character was first introduced. Though the scenarios are over-the-top, and the fast-paced world of Los Angeles is completely foreign to a Midwestern girl, it's hard not to empathize with the protagonist and to understand the weight of untruths that can build atop each other. This show is about the consequences of our actions waiting around the corner to catch us, and none of us being perfect, I think Californication has a message that applies to all — if you can stomach the coarse, crude, nearly x-rated manner in which it's conveyed.
