Hank Moody- a self loathing, narcissistic author struggles to overcome writer's block while balancing his occasional drug use, alcoholism, and borderline sex addiction all the while trying to get back together with his girlfriend and raise his teenage daughter. Written by
David Duchovny's X-Files co-star Gillian Anderson often wondered and even publicly questioned Duchovny about why she was never asked to be a guest on Californication. She often mentions how she would have been glad to appear on the show even for free and how fun it would have been if her appearance was an in-joke. As an example of this, she jokingly mentioned the idea of playing a stripper dressed for Duchovny's character, Hank Moody, as Scully. See more »

I can't talk about this show enough. It's just genius. I mean, it's so good it survived 75% of the advertisers pulling off after the pilot because of all the boycotts these sad little organizations were doing. It also survived a lawsuit by Red Hot Chilli Peppers on some crap about the name of their song and the name of the series.
Well, Californication got nominated to 2 golden globes and won one even though it's a series that doesn't cover a big age range. I'm just afraid Hollywood will screw up as it always does and pull the show off the air.
So, I'm telling you people, watch the the first episode and you'll know what you're missing. This series is a gem.
