Californication The Land of Rape and Honey S03E02 (Showtime)

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. I enjoyed the second series as well. 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. The third season starts smoothly enough.

Warning: Spoilers ahead and strong language.

Hank is a college teacher. That’s a strong word. He’s just trying to make some money. He’s got trouble at home with Becca. Runkle is still trying to patch things up with his ex, but he comes across the fact that she likes rape fantasies. He tries to do one himself. It doesn’t work out. He’s moved back into his house.

Kathleen Turner looks really bad as his nympho boss. She keeps trying to get into Runkle’s pants. I don’t know which is more disturbing.

Hank has decided taking the teaching gig. He is having dinner with Runkle, Marcie, and Becca. Becca is busy texting. Runkle is trying to make his play for Marcie, but it’s falling on deaf ears. A tall, black dude comes to pick up Marcie for a date.

During Hank’s class, one of the kids is reading an idiotic vampire story. The boy’s roommate says that his story is shit. Hank’s TA Jill isn’t happy that Richard Bates has been replaced by Hank. She was doing her thesis on him.

Vampire kid comes to see Hank in his office. It sounds like he is making a pass at him. He asks Hank for his honest, brutal opinion. Hank gives it to him. He says that his story was shit and that the world doesn’t need more bad vampire fiction.

Hank tells Runkle about Vampire Kid. He feels a little bad about giving him the brutal truth. Runkle comes home and finds Marcie doing some sexual role-playing with her boyfriend. He hears rape and goes barging in. They were acting out a rape fantasy.

The dean wants to see Hank. Vampire Kid must have committed suicide. He tried to, at least. Vampire Kid’s name is Chris Smith.

Runkle is getting hit on once again by Sue. She keeps going on about sodomy. He asks her about rape fantasies.

Hank pays a visit to Chris. He uses what Runkle confessed to him. It works well. Meanwhile, Runkle tries out a rape fantasy on Marcie.

Hank gives Chris’ hot roommate a lift. She works as a stripper.

When he comes home, Becca wants to go out, but Hank lays down the law and throws her phone against a wall when she starts texting in the middle of their conversation.
