But it's got entertainment value despite the cast of often unsympathetic characters.

i wish there was more drinking and fucking and wrunkel, and less of the stupid "i want my girlfriend who i never married" shit.

So season 3 has potential.. sort of.

The one with big ears? She should have been in Dazed and Confused.

The dialogue is pretty retarded, and the improbablities really try my patience. Entertaining, nonetheless.

Whoa, 4 different nude girls in the first show, can they really keep that up?

They had, more or less, had the same bodies though... and some were just sort of thrown in for the sake of it. Not that I'm complaining though.

I love Californication but there was no way in hell that you couldn't say that season two was just as cartoonish and adolescent as anything in Entourage. I could sit here for half an hour and chronicle the cartoonishness of the last six episodes alone.

That said, the death of Lou Ashby bummed me out a little. I would have gave him his own show.

Yes! The statue was soooo badass. Swinging a golf club with 3 foot dick hanging from under his kilt!

I really like the show. That said, some of the hipster speechifying from Duchovny is cringe-worthy. The whole, point I'd guess. The ex wife's a little annoying, but the daughter is a superb actress for one so young. And the most normal/mature despite the Goth look. Another point, I assume. Looking forward to Season Three.

I thought the Gatsby parallels they were going for was interesting, and Ashby's character was fun and I was sorry to see him go but I'm not sure how else you'd write him out of being Duchovny's drinking buddy. After two solid seasons, it doesn't hold up to some of the great dramas/comedies of our time, but it's a fun half-hour I have no problem downloading once a week.

I agree with you guys 100%. Worst parts of season 2 for me were 1) Any time he spends with his annoying daughter. 2) 90's Nirvana NYC flashback. That was horrid.

I think that was done to remove any sympathy for Karen (or whatever his sorta wife's name is). Maybe McElhone might not be back for another season?

I find the show more interesting because of parallels to Duchovny's personal life, and how the joke seems to ultimately be on him.
