The 'Californication' Cast Talks Nudity, Guest Stars & This Season's Hijinks (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jan 20th 2011 6:00PM
Californication'Californication' has always been a rollercoaster of a show; it's heartfelt and bringing you to tears one minute, offensive and borderline disgusting the next. Having seen the entire fourth season already -- with pretty ladies and Hollywood tempting Hank Moody more than ever -- I can tell you that it's no different.

I caught up with castmembers Pamela Adlon, Evan Handler and Madeleine Martin, as well as guest star Carla Gugino, to hear about the ups, the downs and the big changes happening in Hank's universe this season (Sundays, 9PM ET on Showtime).

We also dished about the show's strict nudity policy (I imagine it's simply: There Must Be Nudity) and who holds the show record in that regard. And for the youngest castmember Martin, David Duchovny's TV daughter admits she wasn't always allowed to watch -- and now she chooses not to: "I don't like to see Hank naked, because Becca wouldn't see him naked ... so I've stopped watching." Awesome.

What do you think of this season? And are you happy it already got picked up for Season 5? Sound off ...

'Californication' Season 4, Episode 2 Recap

David Duchovny in 'Californication'['Californication' - 'Suicide Solution']

Hank Moody is a lot like another cad that I have written extensively about: The same sense of the world owing them something, the same blatant disregard for candor and social contracts, the same penchant for the lady-folk, and the same flair for the shockingly vulgar as Kenny Powers ... only with a firm grasp -- one might say "a stranglehold" -- on the English language.

Hank knows how to use his words to get what he wants, and to manipulate those less acquainted with the ways of the pen, while Kenny banged away at his words with a utilitarian bent that approached grunting. Yes, it's words that separate Hank Moody from the sea of cads of his ilk, and it's time to see if they can save him from himself.

At Showtime's Television Critics Association panel this afternoon, Entertainment President David Nevins announced that the network has renewed 'Californication' for a fifth season. The comedy's fourth season, which chronicles the attempt of Duchovny's womanizing Hank Moody to stay out of jail after some ill-advised sexual adventures, premiered on Sunday night to its highest-rated telecast ever.

Also at the panel, Nevins officially announced a new reality series that will follow the San Francisco Giants as they defend their World Series title in the 2011 season. The show doesn't yet have a title, but it will likely air during this year's baseball season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

'Californication' Season 4 Premiere Recap

When we last saw Hank Moody, he was banging co-eds and punching cops, and it seemed as though the much maligned and misunderstood lothario had hit rock bottom, having recently told the love of his life that he had sex with an underage girl who was set to be her step-daughter (Mia) before the vixen stole his second great novel detailing the particulars of their affair.

But for Hank Moody, that's like a typical Wednesday. Hank Moody's rock bottom makes other people's rock bottoms look like Sunday afternoon fro-yo -- with sprinkles -- and if you asked Hank where he goes from here, he'd come back with a hearty, defiant, "I have not yet begun to almost impregnante every woman in California while trying to raise my daughter right!"

Showtime Sets 2011 Premiere Dates

by Scott Harris, posted Jul 12th 2010 5:20PM
For decades, networks and television fans have looked to the fall for the unveiling of new shows, new seasons and new ideas. In recent years, though, more and more premieres have been taking place at the beginning of the year, with groundbreaking classics like 'The Sopranos' and 'Lost' favoring January or February debuts. Which begs the question: Has winter finally become television most important season?

Showtime, at least, seems to think so: according to The Hollywood Reporter, the influential cable network has announced premiere dates for three of their most anticipated shows -- 'Shameless,' 'Episodes' and returning fan favorite 'Californication' -- and all three will be hitting the airwaves in January.

What to Watch: April 12 - 18

It's back! The all-singing all-dancing insanity that 'Idol' used to justify keeping Michael Lynche on the show is back for sweeps and everyone is very excited (except me, because I am the one person in the universe who doesn't see the appeal). Will is finally single, but instead of jumping Emma's bones like he's been waiting his whole life to do it, he takes some time to think about his new situation. And just when Rachel and Finn seemed to be getting started on something real, she gets sidetracked by a fellow called Jesse St. James. Oh honey, no! Any variation on Jesse James is bad news. Trust.

'Justified' - 'Fixer' Recap

Timothy Olyphant in JUSTIFIED
The TV watching circles whose gazes are glued to the glow of their TVs like vultures at a duck crossing are starting to joke that Raylan Givens is racking up quite a body count.

Let's do a little TV addition. He's only killed two people in three episodes: the restaurant case in Miami and another poor schlub in this week's gripping tale of greed. Sure he shot Boyd in the chest, but that only turned out to be a serious wound and a sniper killed a hostage holder in the second episode. He's far from becoming the edgy dramatic equivalent of TV's 'Sledge Hammer' and definitely smart enough to know you don't challenge the kill record of a man who talks to his gun.

Besides, complaining about Raylan's penchant for blowing away scumsuckers is an unnecessary diversion from a show that is starting to build some gripping potential.
