Series overview

The series revolves around Hank Moody, a charming ladies' man of a writer and novelist plagued by personal demons. He blames his years-long case of writer's block on a variety of reasons, ranging from the hedonism of Los Angeles, to his girlfriend Karen leaving him. Hank constantly deals with the consequences of his lack of will to say "no" to available drugs, sex and alcohol, while trying to show his family that he can be a good, responsible caring father to Becca and a monogamous partner to Karen.
The show was renewed for a second season on September 7, 2007.[2] The season 1 finale, titled "The Last Waltz", originally aired on Showtime on October 29, 2007. Season 2 began filming in April 2008,[3] and was underway as of June 2008.[4] The premiere episode of season 2 aired September 28, 2008. The first season was released on DVD in the US on June 17, 2008. Showtime renewed Californication for a third season,[5] which premiered on Sunday September 27, 2009 at 10PM.

Season One

.The first season of Californication premiered August 13, 2007 and ended October 29, 2007. The season followed Hank and the other main characters in the months leading up to Karen's planned marriage to Bill, a Los Angeles publisher.^ Californication Season 2 Episode 1 Loading Time: Slow Host: youku Submited: 15 October 2008 Download in High Definition with Vuze .

Hank is wallowing deep in self-loathing following the release of A Crazy Little Thing Called Love, which he perceives as a low-quality (yet commercially popular) movie adaptation of his most recent novel, God Hates Us All[6].
After picking up a younger woman in a bookstore and eventually having sex with her, Hank finds out that she is actually Bill's 16-year-old daughter, Mia. Hank spends most of his time drinking and not writing. Meanwhile, Mia continues to harass Hank during his visits to his family; she uses the threat of exposing his illegal sex with her as leverage to extort stories from him (that she passes off as her own) for her high school creative-writing class. The death of Hank's father triggers an alcohol-fueled binge and a sexual encounter with Karen.
After his father's funeral, Hank stays in New York to finish a manuscript for a new novella. However, upon returning to L.A., he believes the original copy to be lost when he is carjacked. Mia, however, had previously copied the original, and takes credit for it herself. On Karen and Bill's wedding day, Hank chooses to accept the way things are; but, as he leaves the reception with his daughter Becca, Karen runs out and jumps into his car, presumably to re-start their life together.

Season Two

.The second season of Californication premiered September 28, 2008, and ended December 14, 2008. The newly reunited couple of Hank and Karen seems to be working out, their house is on the market, and Becca seems happy again.^ Air Date: 28 September 2008 .

Hank gets a vasectomy and attends a party invited by Sonja, a woman with whom Hank had sex in the first season. A mistake and a fight with an obnoxious police officer lands Hank in jail, where he meets Lew Ashby, world-famous record producer, who commissions Hank to write his biography.
Charlie loses his job due to masturbating in his office several times and becomes the paternal figure and agent of a porn star named Daisy. Charlie decides to get into the porn industry and finances the porn movie Vaginatown, starring Daisy. Marcy goes into rehab for her cocaine addiction and Charlie starts an affair with Daisy. Hank proposes to Karen on the night that they discover that Hank could be the father of Sonja's child. Karen says no after hearing the news about Sonja's baby, and Karen decides that she and Hank can't be together, leading Hank to go back to his old ways and continuing the show's centrality on clandestine sexuality.
Hank moves in with Ashby, who starts a romance with Mia (much to Hank's dismay). Becca finds a boyfriend named Damien. Mia's book becomes a hit and Ashby holds a party in its honor, where Damien cheats on Becca and Charlie decides to divorce Marcy to get together with Daisy. After the party, Hank sees that Ashby's old girlfriend (The one that got away) has finally showed up to see Lew. When Hank goes upstairs to get him, Ashby dies after snorting heroin, which he had mistaken for cocaine.
Hank finishes Ashby's biography. Charlie ends up working in a BMW dealership in the Valley. Sonja's baby is born and turns out to be black, making it clear that Hank cannot be the father. Hank and Karen are slowly starting to get together again. Karen then gets offered a job in New York and Hank is happy to go back to New York with her, but when Damien apologizes to Becca and the two get back together again, Hank decides it would be wrong to take Becca out of Los Angeles. He decides to stay, while Karen starts her job in New York. The season closes with Karen's plane leaving for New York and Hank and Becca walking on the Venice boardwalk.

Season Three

.The third season of Californication premiered September 27, 2009 and ended December 13, 2009. This season followed where season two ended, with the key elements including Hank becoming a teacher, his ongoing relationship with his daughter Becca, and the various shenanigans he gets into when he is let loose on a college campus.^ Californication Season 2 Episode 1 part 1 of 2 Loading Time: Average Host: zshare Submited: 5 September 2008 Download in High Definition with Vuze .

The third season also moved the focus of Hank's relationship with Becca from friendly to inherently more moody as she progresses through her teenage years. Hank continued his battle with his inability as a father as he watched his daughter become more like him than he wanted. This was mixed with various relationships with women of differing ages that complicated his relationship with his long-time love Karen.
In the final episode of the season, Hank has recurring nightmares by which he is afloat in a pool, drinking heavily, talking to the women he has recently slept with, who are naked, swimming around him. Both Karen and Becca are on the side of the pool watching. In reality, Mia returns to Hank's home, and offers the family an invitation to go to the media launch of the paperback version of her book. At the afterparty, Hank meets Mia's new boyfriend, who is also her manager. He knows of the history between Mia and Hank, and offers Hank a way out by coming clean to the press about the novel and how it came about. However, Hank is unwilling to do so as it will affect Karen and Becca. Upon another meeting, the two men break into a fight, after which Mia's boyfriend threatens to call the police. Hank leaves and goes home to Karen and tells her his secret that he slept with Mia, to which Karen breaks down uncontrollably. The argument breaks out onto the street, and as Hank attempts to console Karen who is still hysterical, a police car arrives on the scene, two officers step out and when one of them grabs Hank from behind Hank lashes out and hits one of them. He is then bundled into the back of the car as Becca runs to try and stop the police. He is taken away, leaving Becca and Karen alone on the street. The final scene shows a dream sequence of Hank in the pool again, heavily drinking out of the bottle. He falls from his seat and drops his drink, and the last shot shows Hank sinking, with the bottle remaining in shot. [7]

Critical reaction

The critical reaction for Californication has been generally favorable, with a rating of 70 on Metacritic.[8] However there has been a backlash from conservative groups who oppose the explicit nature of the program. Conservative columnist Andrew Bolt criticized the program in the Australian newspaper the Herald Sun, in regards to the pilot's opening dream scene in which a nun performs oral sex on Hank Moody.[9] The Australian Christian Lobby’s managing director Jim Wallace also called for a boycott, not only of Network Ten, but all advertisers who advertise during the show, in response to a scene in which Hank and Sonja smoke marijuana, have sex and subsequently both vomit.[10] .When Network Ten premiered Season 2 on October 5, 2008, the Christian fundamentalist group Salt Shakers led an e-mail campaign against advertisers, requesting they withdraw their advertisements.^ Californication Season 2 Episode 1 Loading Time: Slow Host: youku Submited: 15 October 2008 Download in High Definition with Vuze .

This resulted in 49 companies withdrawing their advertising, including the show's main sponsor, Just Car Insurance.
Breaking with the majority, American critic Nathan Rabin gave the first season an "F" rating on The AV Club, calling it "insufferable."[11]
The show premiered on Thursday, November 8, 2007 in New Zealand amidst controversy due to issues raised by the conservative lobby group Family First, who objected to the content of the show. The group called for families to boycott any company advertising during the episode which it described as "drug, sex and vomit-laden."[12][13][14]
The show and lead actor David Duchovny were both nominated for Golden Globes in 2007; Duchovny won the lead actor award, but the award for best TV series in this category went to Extras.[15]

Lawsuit

The Red Hot Chili Peppers filed a lawsuit on November 19, 2007[16] against Showtime Networks over the name of the series, which is also the name of the band's 1999 album and hit single. They state in the lawsuit that the series "constitutes a false designation of origin, and has caused and continues to cause a likelihood of confusion, mistake, and deception as to source, sponsorship, affiliation, and/or connection in the minds of the public".[17] Pointing to Dani California, a character who appears in both the series and three songs by the Red Hot Chili Peppers (including Californication) as well as confusion when shopping for their album and that of the series soundtrack, the band members are seeking unspecified damages. They are also requesting that a new name be found for the TV show.[17]
Showtime Networks is expected to argue that the band did not in fact create the term Californication. They point out that the term appeared in print in Time Magazine in 1972, in an article called The Great Wild Californicated West.[18] Canadian art-rock band the Rheostatics released an album called Whale Music in 1992, with a song called "California Dreamline". In this song, the word Californication appears in the phrase "Californication, spooning in the dry sand".[19][20]
Kim Walker, head of intellectual property at Pinsent Masons, states that the band should have registered Californication as a trademark. Instead, the only application for such was filed in April 2007 in the US, by Showtime. The mark has not yet been registered. Walker has also stated:
"Successful songs, albums and movies can become brands in themselves. What's really surprising is how few songs and albums are properly protected," said Walker. "The Chili Peppers could almost certainly have registered a trade mark for 'Californication', notwithstanding Time's article. They made the word famous, but it doesn't automatically follow that they can stop its use in a TV show." "If they had registered the title as a trade mark covering entertainment services, I very much doubt we'd have seen a lawsuit. The TV show would have been called something else," he said. "As it is, the band faces an uphill struggle.[17]"
In the United States, character names and titles of works are not given copyright protection. [21]
The matter remains unresolved.

Viewership

The second season finale of Californication drew 615,000 viewers, with a combined total of 937,000 for the evening, retaining less than 50% of its lead-in from the season finale of Dexter. However, the third season of the show has steadily gained viewership and the show was quickly picked up for a fourth season by Showtime.[22]

Trivia

Some references to modern pop-culture include: the titles of Hank's novels named in the show are taken from American thrash metal band Slayer's albums. These are: South of Heaven, Seasons In The Abyss, and of course the main novel in the show, God Hates Us All. Charlie also stated that the bathroom of his house was the only place that had been spared of he and Marcy's "Unholy Alliance", or the only place they had not had sex. Unholy Alliance was the name of a tour by Slayer. Twice in the first season, the wait for Hank's new novel is compared to the wait for the latest Guns 'N Roses album, Chinese Democracy, which took over a decade to be released.
The music of Warren Zevon also plays a significant role in the series. Many of his songs appear in the show, including "Mohammed's Radio", "My Shit's Fucked Up", and "Keep Me In Your Heart". Steve Earle's cover of "Reconsider Me" makes an appearance, as does "Don't Let Us Get Sick", as performed by Becca Moody's band. There are also nods to Zevon's music in the characters' dialogue, including the phrases "life'll kill ya", "porcelain monkey" and "excitable boy". In Season 2, Hank Moody describes his ritual for finishing a book as "whiskey, weed, and Warren Zevon." Also, in the Season 3 finale, the GG Allin version of "Carmelita" plays in the opening scene.
Harry Chapin is also referenced in Season Three. Episode three is titled "Verities and Balderdash" which was the title of a Chapin album. The tenth episode is entitled "Dogtown" which was the title of a Chapin song.
The longest running rock music reference on the show is more subtle. In Season One, Episode One, Hank had his headlight knocked out by a jealous husband wielding a baseball bat. The reference is to the Wallflowers hit song "One Headlight." Hank Moody still drives home with one headlight.

Series overview

The series revolves around Hank Moody, a charming ladies' man of a writer and novelist plagued by personal demons. He blames his years-long case of writer's block on a variety of reasons, ranging from the hedonism of Los Angeles to his girlfriend Karen leaving him. Hank constantly deals with the consequences of his lack of will to say "no" to available drugs, sex and alcohol, while trying to show his family that he can be a good, responsible caring father to Becca and a monogamous partner to Karen.

The show was renewed for a second season on September 7, 2007.[4] The season 1 finale, titled "The Last Waltz", originally aired on Showtime on October 29, 2007. Season 2 began filming in April 2008,[5] and was underway as of June 2008.[6] The premiere episode of season 2 aired September 28, 2008. The first season was released on DVD in the US on June 17, 2008. Showtime renewed Californication for a third season,[7] which premiered on Sunday September 27, 2009 at 10PM.

Season One

Season 1 (August 13-October 29, 2007) followed Hank and the other main characters in the months leading up to Karen's planned marriage to Bill, a Los Angeles publisher. Hank is wallowing deep in self-loathing following the release of A Crazy Little Thing Called Love, which he perceives as a low-quality (yet commercially popular) movie adaptation of his most recent novel, God Hates Us All.[8]

After picking up a younger woman in a bookstore and eventually having sex with her, Hank finds out that she is actually Bill's 16-year-old daughter, Mia. Hank spends most of his time drinking and not writing. Meanwhile, Mia continues to harass Hank during his visits to his family. She uses the threat of exposing his illegal sex with her as leverage to extort stories from him that she passes off as her own for her high school creative-writing class. The death of Hank's father triggers an alcohol-fueled binge and a sexual encounter with Karen.

After his father's funeral, Hank stays in New York to finish a manuscript for a new novella. However, upon returning to L.A., he believes the original copy to be lost when he is carjacked. Mia, however, had previously copied the original and takes credit for it herself. On Karen and Bill's wedding day, Hank chooses to accept the way things are; but, as he leaves the reception with his daughter Becca, Karen runs out and jumps into his car, presumably to re-start their life together.

Season Two

In Season 2 (September 28-December 14, 2008), the newly reunited couple of Hank and Karen seems to be working out, their house is on the market, and Becca seems happy again. Hank gets a vasectomy and attends a party invited by Sonja, a woman he had sex with in Season 1. A mistake and a fight with an obnoxious police officer lands Hank in jail, where he meets Lew Ashby, world-famous record producer, who commissions Hank to write his biography.

Charlie loses his job because of masturbating in his office several times and becomes the paternal figure and agent of a porn star named Daisy. Charlie decides to get into the porn industry and finances the porn movie Vaginatown, starring Daisy. Marcy goes into rehab for her cocaine addiction, and Charlie starts an affair with Daisy. Hank proposes to Karen on the night they discover Hank could be the father of Sonja's child, and Karen says, "No". Karen decides she and Hank can't be together, leading Hank to go back to his old ways and continuing the show's centrality on clandestine sexuality.

Hank moves in with Ashby, who starts a romance with Mia (much to Hank's dismay). Becca finds a boyfriend named Damien. Mia's book becomes a hit; and Ashby holds a party in its honor, where Damien cheats on Becca and Charlie decides to divorce Marcy to get together with Daisy. After the party, Hank sees that Ashby's old girlfriend (The One That Got Away) has finally showed up to see Lew. When Hank goes upstairs to get him, Ashby dies after snorting heroin, which he had mistaken for cocaine.

Hank finishes Ashby's biography. Charlie ends up working in a BMW dealership in the Valley. Sonja's baby is born and is biracial, making it clear that Hank cannot be the father. Hank and Karen are slowly starting to get together again. Karen is offered a job in New York; and Hank is happy to go back to New York with her; but, when Damien apologizes to Becca and the two get back together again, Hank decides it would be wrong to take Becca out of Los Angeles. He decides to stay, while Karen starts her job in New York. The season closes with Karen's plane leaving for New York and Hank and Becca walking on the Venice boardwalk.

Season Three

Season 3 (September 27-December 13, 2009)[7] began where Season 2 ended, with the key elements including Hank becoming a teacher, his ongoing relationship with his daughter Becca, and the various shenanigans he gets into when he is set loose on a college campus.

The focus of Hank's relationship with Becca moved from friendly to inherently more moody as she progresses through her teenage years. Hank continued his battle with his inability as a father as he watched his daughter become more like him than he wanted. This was mixed with various relationships with women of differing ages that complicated his relationship with his long-time love Karen.

In the season finale, Hank has recurring nightmares in which he is afloat in a pool, drinking heavily and talking to the women he has recently slept with, who are naked and swimming around him. Karen and Becca are on the side of the pool. In reality, Mia returns to Hank's home and offers the family an invitation to go to the media launch of the paperback version of her book. At the after-party, Hank meets Mia's new boyfriend, who is also her manager. He knows of the history between Mia and Hank and offers Hank a way out by coming clean to the press about the novel and how it came about. However, Hank is unwilling to do so as it will affect Karen and Becca. Upon another meeting, the two men break into a fight, after which Mia's boyfriend threatens to call the police. Hank leaves and goes home to Karen and tells her his secret that he slept with Mia, and Karen breaks down uncontrollably. The argument breaks out onto the street; and, as Hank attempts to console the still-hysterical Karen, a police car arrives on the scene. Two officers step out of the car; and, when one of them grabs Hank from behind, Hank lashes out and hits him. He is then bundled into the back of the car as Becca runs to try and stop the police. He is taken away, leaving Becca and Karen alone on the street. The final scene shows a dream sequence of Hank in the pool again, drinking out of the bottle. He falls from his seat and drops his drink; and the last shot shows Hank sinking, with the bottle remaining in shot.

Season 4 will begin January 10, 2011.[9] Filming began on 19 April 2010.

Critical reaction

The critical reaction for Californication has been generally favorable, with a rating of 70 on Metacritic.[11] American critic Nathan Rabin gave Season 1 an "F" rating on The AV Club, calling it "insufferable."[12]

There has been a backlash from conservative groups who oppose the explicit nature of the program. Conservative columnist Andrew Bolt criticized the program in the Australian newspaper the Herald Sun for the pilot's opening dream scene, in which a nun performs oral sex on Hank Moody in a church.[13] The Australian Christian Lobby’s managing director Jim Wallace also called for a boycott, not only of Network Ten, but all advertisers who advertise during the show, in response to a scene in which Hank and Sonja smoke marijuana, have sex, and vomit.[14] When Network Ten premiered Season 2, the Christian fundamentalist group Salt Shakers led an e-mail campaign against advertisers, requesting they withdraw their advertisements. This resulted in 49 companies withdrawing their advertising, including the show's main sponsor, Just Car Insurance.

The show premiered in New Zealand amidst controversy about issues raised by the conservative lobby group Family First. The group called for families to boycott any company advertising during the episode, which it described as "drug-, sex-, and vomit-laden."[15][16][17]

The show and the lead actor, David Duchovny, were both nominated for Golden Globes in 2007; Duchovny won the lead actor award, but the award for best TV series in this category went to Extras.[18]

Lawsuit

The Red Hot Chili Peppers filed a lawsuit on November 19, 2007[20] against Showtime Networks over the name of the series, which is also the name of the band's 1999 album and hit single. They state in the lawsuit that the series "constitutes a false designation of origin, and has caused and continues to cause a likelihood of confusion, mistake, and deception as to source, sponsorship, affiliation, and/or connection in the minds of the public".[21] Pointing to Dani California, a character who appears in both the series and three songs by the Red Hot Chili Peppers (including Californication) as well as confusion when shopping for their album and that of the series soundtrack, the band members are seeking unspecified damages. They are also requesting that a new name be found for the TV show.[21]

Showtime Networks is expected to argue that the band did not in fact create the term Californication. They point out that the term appeared in print in Time Magazine in 1972, in an article called The Great Wild Californicated West.[22] Canadian art-rock band the Rheostatics released an album called Whale Music in 1992, with a song called "California Dreamline". In this song, the word Californication appears in the phrase "Californication, spooning in the dry sand".[22][23]

Kim Walker, head of intellectual property at Pinsent Masons, states that the band should have registered Californication as a trademark. Instead, the only application for such was filed in April 2007 in the US, by Showtime. The mark has not yet been registered. Walker has also stated:

Successful songs, albums and movies can become brands in themselves. What's really surprising is how few songs and albums are properly protected... The Chili Peppers could almost certainly have registered a trade mark for 'Californication', notwithstanding Time's article. They made the word famous, but it doesn't automatically follow that they can stop its use in a TV show.

If they had registered the title as a trade mark covering entertainment services, I very much doubt we'd have seen a lawsuit. The TV show would have been called something else. As it is, the band faces an uphill struggle.[21]

In the United States, character names and titles of works are only subject to trademark protection, not copyright protection.[24] The legal matter remains unresolved.

Viewership

The Season 2 finale drew 615,000 viewers, with a combined total of 937,000 for the evening, retaining less than 50% of its lead-in from the season finale of Dexter. However, Season 3 steadily gained viewership, and the show was quickly picked up for a fourth season by Showtime.[25]

Popular culture references

The titles of Hank's novels are taken from the albums of the metal band Slayer. These are: South of Heaven, 'Seasons In The Abyss', and the main novel in the show, God Hates Us All. The movie adaptation of 'God Hates Us All' is named 'A Crazy Little Thing Called Love', a reference to a song by Queen. Charlie also stated that the bathroom of his house was the only place that had been spared his and Marcy's "Unholy Alliance", or the only place they had not had sex. Unholy Alliance was the name of a tour by Slayer. In Season 3 Hank tells Richard Bates, also an author, that he enjoyed his book Crack the Sky, a reference to Mastodon's 2009 album Crack the Skye.

Twice in Season 1, the wait for Hank's new novel is compared to the wait for the latest Guns 'N Roses album, Chinese Democracy, which took over a decade to be released.

Several (if not all) of the episode titles are references to songs or albums by famous rock bands. For instance, the first episode of season 2 is named Slip of the Tongue, which is the name of a Whitesnake album, and the first episode of season 3 is called Wish You Were Here, a song by Pink Floyd.

Referenced in the Drake song "Say Something" where Drake says "let's sit and drink wine and watch Californication"

The music of Warren Zevon also plays a significant role in the series. Many of his songs appear in the show, including "Mohammed's Radio", "My Shit's Fucked Up", and "Keep Me In Your Heart". Steve Earle's cover of "Reconsider Me" makes an appearance, as does "Don't Let Us Get Sick", as performed by Becca Moody's band. There are also nods to Zevon's music in the characters' dialogue, including the phrases "Life'll Kill Ya", "Porcelain Monkey" and "Excitable Boy". In Season 2, Hank Moody describes his ritual for finishing a book as "whiskey, weed, and Warren Zevon." Also, in the Season 3 finale, the GG Allin version of "Carmelita" plays in the opening scene.

Harry Chapin is referenced in Season 3. Episode 3 is titled "Verities and Balderdash", the title of a Chapin album; and Episode 10 is entitled "Dogtown", the title of a Chapin song. "Dogtown" is also a reference to the part of Santa Monica, California, where skateboarding originated. The Dogtown and Z-Boys cross logo is also spray-painted on the wall outside Hank's apartment.

Many lyrics are referenced in Hank's dialogue including Bruce Springsteen "No retreat baby, no surrender" from "No Surrender" and Leonard Cohen "there are cracks, that's how the light gets in" from "Anthem". Both feature in Season 3.

A few things I've learned on my travels through this crazy little thing called life. One, a morning of awkwardness is far better than a night of loneliness. Two, I probably won't go down in history, but I will go down on your sister. And 3, while I'm down there it might be nice to see a hint of pubis. I'm not talking about a huge 70's Playboy bush or anything.
