We're not on X-Files anymore

I admit it, I was an X-files fan, back when Mulder and Scully were looking into the extra-terrestrial on FOX. I have always had a warm affection for David Duchovony - he just seems like a regular guy to me. So I couldn't miss his latest Showtime concoction, Californication. The series' title should have warned me but no - I needed to see for myself. Mulder has turned into Hank Moody - junkie, writer, womanizer - and I think I love him.

If I did not know that David Duchovony does dog food commercials and has a nice little marriage with Tea Leoni, a couple of kids - I would think he was Hank Moody. I think his acting is great, leaves me wondering when Duchovony ends and Moody starts. The show is f*cking unbelievable crass, Crass with a capital "C" (as in 1. without refinement, delicacy, or sensitivity; gross; obtuse; stupid: crass commercialism; a crass misrepresentation of the facts.) - so be warned - not for the kids or faint of heart. One scene in the second episode left my jaw agape, did I really just see that? It's a guilty pleasure - it feels criminal and a little dirty. If you do not appreciate cursing, do not watch this show.

I was sad when Showtime canceled Huff, I loved the show and Hank Azaria (funny two Hanks in these shows - one real, one fictional...anyways...) so thank you execs for at least leaving me with Californication. Good, if now raw, stuff.

I've only scene the first episode but will watch more - thank you On Demand!

I was pretty stunned to see him play such a slutty role! Pretty funny parts though and I'm curious to see where it all leads.

My guilty pleasure was Deadwood. Something about that time era for me. The show was so vulgar but I have to admit, I loved it! I've seen the shows actors on other series now so the show must be canceled :(
