Movies & TV Monday 12th November 2007

I keep catching bits of Californication on TV and it always seems great. Last nights episode was called “LOL” and had Hank (Duchovny) bitching about the decline of decent spoken english, very topical. It also featured this great exchange:

Hank: “B” to the “I” to the double “L”. What’s up, my nig nog?
Bill: I need to talk to you.
Hank: Well, you should have called. I wouldn’t have answered, but you could’ve left a message, which I would have quickly erased.

OK, maybe it was funnier in context. You’ve just got to imagine the half-awake, hungover, dead-pan of Duchovy’s delivery.



  1. Californication was indeed an awesome show. Thankfully it was finished before the writers strike and had a reasonably satisfying ending. There’s going to be a second season as well.

    Other new shows you should check out are Chuck (first two episodes are so so but it’s now the show I’m most looking forward to each week), Pushing Daisies (Lucasarts point&click + Amelie, Big Fish) and Reaper (Ray Wise is the devil, first episode directed by Kevin Smith, what not to like).

  2. Californication is fabulous. Any show where the pre-start warning include sex, violence and scenes viewers may find offiensive if usually worth a watch…

  3. Apparently Red Hot Chili Peppers are planning to sue the program over their song called Californication.
