Robert Stark talks to Count Fosco about the show Californication

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Topics:

Hank(David Duchovny) is an established author, kind of like every independent man’s dream, though he could easily get taken advantage of by every woman he sleeps with, starting with Mia(Madeline Zima)
How Hank never seems to learn anything, if anything in later seasons he becomes less intelligent…he even admits it…he is a “writer, non-practicing”
Hank is very well connected, demonstrating implicitly that his lifestyle can’t be forever or for everyone
There is something surreal about this show in that no man, not even the powerful get hit on this much by women
Hank ironically suffers from writers block but interestingly, always “writes about what he knows”
Hank’s nihilistic novel being turned into a cheesy romantic comedy
Mia stealing Hank’s novel based on his encounter with her which is latter turned into a film
Madeline Zima in the new Twin Peaks
Similarities between Hank and major sex positive male feminist who have been accused of sexual harassment
The ridiculous sex scenarios Hank gets into
How by the end of the first season it’s interesting how his unmarried “wife” still prefers him which logically doesn’t make much sense but does make sense when you think of his “I don’t give a damn” characteristics
Hank’s agent “Charlie Runkel” who is probably closer to what Hank would be like if he were a real life character
How on some level Hank is genuinely self-loathing
The relationship between Hank and his daughter
Charlie’s boss Sue Collini(Kathleen Turner) who is intimidating even for a cougar and has a very attractive histrionic personality
Sue Collini isn’t the romantic type, she only wants sex from her clients; “Sue Collini always get’s the weenie”
Mia having a preference for older men behind her father’s back while sending every possible signal that she was doing so anyway
How the show has almost every possible sexual fetish in it mentioned
How the show is based on repetition rather than an overall plot
How a lot of Far-Right people watch this show despite that they would all call it degenerate
How the show relates to the ongoing Hollywood sex scandals; the line “You’re no Brett Ratner”
