TGIM - Californication

I thought about what I was going to be happy about on Monday a lot over the weekend, and while I came up with many things, I forgot all but one of them.

I watched a lot of new television over the summer - Mad Men, Psych, How I Met Your Mother, Dexter, and probably more. But there's one show that really stood out to me, and I watched it in about two days. Tali told me it would happen, and that I would love Hank Moody (who is a Libertarian), but man... I loved the hell out of the show.

I'm talking of course about Showtime's Californication. Hank Moody is the best character on TV, and he makes the show infinitely watchable. I don't mean that the show is passable, as in, "It's... watchable." I mean that once you start, it's really hard to stop. I took out the first season in under 2 days, and I watched all of Season 2 (despite seeing episodes 1-5 previously online) in less than 24 hours ending today.

I described him last night as "walking sex," not to mention awesome. He lives by the code of "always have a better answer," and though he's a recreational drug user and sex addict, he's a great father and a romantic. He's the man every fuckup should long to be.

There's a pretty big game changer at the end of Season 1, and I wondered what Season 2 would be like. Well, it delivered. It's a fantastic show, and for anyone that hasn't seen it, Season 1 is on DVD, and 2 can be found on the Internet or through friends until the DVD is released. Season 3 comes out this year, and not soon enough if you ask me.

I don't think the mainstream marketing was all that stellar, especially initially, but hopefully it'll be around for a good while. I need good things in my life, especially when the Hawks find new ways to keep breaking my heart.
