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. Runkle messes things up with Marcie by relenting to his boss’ sexual harassment. Moody fantasizes about Jackie and has sex with his TA Jill, while fooling around with Felicia. All in all, a good day for Hank Moody!

Felicia checks in on Hank. He’s having a nap. She says that she was in love with Stacy before he cheated on her with a student. She kisses him again. Jill interrupts them. She also wants to talk. They start fooling around. She says that she hadn’t had sex in a while before last night. Now, it’s kind of like he awoke the tiger in her.

Moody and Runkle drop by Faster Pussycat. Jackie dropped his class. She gives Moody a lapdance. Runkle comes in his pants. Marcie calls him. Someone is coming by to make an offer for their house. Marcie’s tampon doesn’t flush and the visitors see this and flee.
Hank tries to defend Jackie’s honor, but gets his ass kicked. She takes him home and they start kissing. Jackie weakens his resolve and they screw.
Runkle makes another play for Marcie, and she capitulates.
Hank calls Karen. It’s apparent that they are drifting apart. Very far apart. Almost too far for it to work out anymore.
Hank comes to class. Jill, Felicia, and Jill are all in his class. It’s going to be interesting. Jill already told him that she isn’t wearing any underwear. He writes FUCK on the whiteboard.
