It’s the season premiere of Californication, and it starts surprisingly. The show was very quickly renewed for a new season.
How long will it take Hank to mess things up with Karen? Not very long. Hank’s usual nice disposition doesn’t win him any favorites when he tries to talk his way out of a warning. He just gets arrested.
I enjoyed the whole first series. Even though some critics were against some of the more controversial scenes, I enjoyed them. It paints an interesting picture of the life of Hank Moody and his messed up life. Hank has been a real asshole in the past, but at the end of it all he’s a good man. If you thought that the second season was going to be any less controversial, think again. This time, it’s mouth rape.
Even though Karen decided to let Hank rot in jail for a little while, he gets bailed by Ashby, the guy at who’s place Hank committed inadvertent mouth rape. Ashby wants Hank to work with him.
Charlie and Marcy go down the deep end using coke and lobsters. Charlie actually loses his job. Only Hank can help him out.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
