  • Very funny and witty show for adults!

    David Duchovny shines here of course, but writing is also incredibly good. I love this show to death. Highly recommended!
  • "You can't always get what you want"

    I started watching Californication on Netflix about 2 weeks ago and after watching the pilot I was comepletely hooked! I just got done watching the final episode of season 7, and honestly I think that it was a perfect way of ending the series. Of course I wish there was a season 8 but, "you cant always get what you.
  • Goodbye Hank Moody!

    Goodbye Californication! It's been a good ride, despite the downfall of the latter seasons. I really think that the show should have ended with the Season 4 finale. That way, we wouldn't have to endure the atrocities that were Seasons 5 and 7. The last season was probably the worst. The storyline with the TV show was very boring and all the new characters that were introduced (except Rath) were ranging from annoying to fucking intolerable (I'm looking at you Levon). The episode with Karen's accident felt forced, like the writers really wanted to produce an emotional episode, but it didn't really hit the right expectations for the finale weren't very high, so after I watched it, I felt pretty satisfied. The airplane chase wasn't very original and the fact that Karen took Hank back just because he produced another heartfelt speech about his love for her wasn't very convincing, but I guess I wanted a happy ending for Hank, so it felt right to me. The image of the Porsche left in the LA airport was also very strong. All in all, Californication was a very amusing and at times heartwarming show (at least in its good days) that had at its core the relationship between Hank and his family (Karen and Becca) and when the show focused on them, it was at its best.moreless
  • "Madafakas"

    Lets be honest here! Californication was never going to have the shock, horror ending like the Sopranos.

    Wether you loved the ending or hated it, any real Cal-fan had that tingling feeling, as we said farewell to Hank as the one of the famous Porsches disappeared into the sunset to the tune of "rocket man".

    Us the fans, the critics, the haters can all have our opinion on how it should or should not of ended.

    The fact of the matter is this.......

    Tom, David and all the cast and crew kept us entertained for the last 7 years. I mean who could forget Hanks letter to Karen, Lou fucking Ashby, the church scene, Karen jumping into Hanks car????? The show had us all on the edge of our seats at times. Many a time "lmao" and occasionally... " hurry up and finish season 6, so I can play season 7 back to back to see the ending that we've all been waiting for".

    In my opinion the show should of finished on series 4. Hank driving of into the sunset, with the Rolling Stones playing in the background

    " You can't always get what you want"

    A fitting and respectable ending, to Hank, Karen, Becca and not forgetting us, the fans.

    As Hank said "It is possible that longing for something is better than actually having it. I've heard it said that satisfaction is the death of desire".

    " Fade the fuck out...... The end, muthafakah!".
