Californication Wish You Were Here S03E01 (Showtime)

Saurons eye

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.

Karen is in NYC and Hank is in LA. They are both seeing other people. Hank makes a surprising decision while he’s looking for gigs. He’s become persona non grata and the fact that Runkle was caught wanking off in his office and got fired didn’t help his career. Meanwhile, Runkle is trying to get back together with Marcie.
