Yes, Californication is a misogynistic, sadistic and downright disgusting piece of premium television at times, especially for this Christian man, but I can’t help but downright idolize Hank Moody, David Duchovny’s amazingly brilliant, egotistical, womanizing author/sociopath character on Showtime’s Californication.
We all want to be the writer Hank is.
He doesn’t care, write what he feels, people drool over his words and he makes tons of money doing it.
Don’t act like you don’t want the same thing.
We all want to be admired for our skill with the written word and “yes, some money would be nice.” Name that movie….I’ll give you a hint, Jason Lee.
Again, I am not saying that the basis of the show, and yes even “Hank’s” behavior isn’t obnoxious and disgusting, but he inspires us to write, to be a writer, and that I can appreciate.
