Californication: My (Most Likely Unpopular) Take

January 3, 2017

I very recently binge-watched Californication, and without getting carried away and writing a thesis on the issue, I have to say I’m disappointed in a few areas.

I watched in the first place because I’m an X-Files geek, and I’ve seen countless comments on internet X-Files posts gushing about Hank Moody and this show in general. I did thoroughly enjoy a lot of it. However, I was left rolling my eyes through a good portion of the 7 seasons.

Let’s start with the good.

The show’s theme song may be the best I’ve ever heard in recent times. I literally danced around my condo during all 84 opens. So kudos to the composer. YouTube it if you haven’t heard it.

This is my favourite Hank Moody moment of all time:

 

Best. Scene. Ever.

Moving on. I sort of enjoyed Hank’s relationship with Becca,  but so much was wrong with it, too, so it’s not on my list of faves.

This 365 challenge should be interesting

January 2, 2017

I have a number of topics I want to address in future posts, but writing on a public forum every day for a year seems so daunting. Especially since I’ve never been a person of few words. I always ramble on and on. That said, no matter what, I’ll try to post daily.

I will be talking about a range of things, including but not limited to my life experiences, friendship, work issues, and TV shows. I just finished watching all 7 seasons of Californication, and hell, I have shit to say about it. I’ll post my comments tomorrow.

Preview: I’m not the undying fan of Hank Moody that so many seem to be. I love him in my own way but…I would bitchslap the hell out of that 🎶MUTHAFUCKAHHHH🎶 (if you’ve never watched the show, you won’t get that reference btw 😆)

As an aside, I’ve begun the year with a brand new sense of self (after a lot of work (psychologically) last year), and I will probably have a lot to say on my new outlook/perspective in future posts.

Thanks to all of you who tag all along for the ride! 💙
