Hello hello. I’m officially a “homester” (aka, a person who thinks it’s cool to stay at home all the time).
So what do I do to pass the time as a homester? I watch television, of course. Since we got Showtime to watch Dexter–which is now on hiatus–I started to dig into the “On Demand” list and decided to check out an episode of this “Californication” show I’ve been hearing about starring David Duchovny. The show is AWESOME. I blew through all 12 episodes of season 1 in a matter of days. The greatest part of the show is that the episodes got BETTER as the season went on and the characters got more and more complex.
It’s a great ensemble cast, everyone is on point–even if it is a little weird seeing the little girl from “The Nanny” (Madeline Zima) all growns up and exposing her naked boobies. Oh, and if this will make you watch the show–boobies are a big part of almost every episode. The boob ratio is very high since David D’s character, Hank Moody, is a lover of the ladies. (Also why everyone calls this show “The Sex-Files”.)
And if boobies and hilarious, witty dialogue weren’t enough for you, Madeline Martin, who plays Hank Moody’s young daughter Becca, is a DEAD RINGER for a young Meg White of the White Stripes. Seriously, it’s creepy. Oh, and in the show her character is way into rock music and she even fronts her own little garage band called “Kill Jill.” Perfect.
Contrast and compare:
Showtime has totally been putting HBO to shame with its awesome programming: “Dexter”, “Californication”, and “The Tudors” to name a few. I haven’t gotten into “Weeds” yet, but I have heard a lot of awesome things about it as well. Maybe that’ll be my next favorite show!
