Californication Review: "Zoso"

by at . Comments

More and more, Californication is beginning to resemble work from David Duchovony's early fame: Red Shoe Diaries! Once charming and intelligent, the dialog is mostly just crass and predictable, and the story lines are practically ripped directly from soft porn.

Sex is the core focus on the show, but the direction has changed, and it's a little much, don't you think? 

While somewhat disappointed with the game, we're not at all disappointed with the some of the players. Two words: Eva Amurri. She plays Jackie, Hank's student who moonlights as a stripper. Did you see her naked body? Unbelievable! Mother Susan Sarandon must be so proud! And when and if you get past the incredible bod, she is still a very likable character. We hope she sticks around for a while!

What's your take on the most recent episode? See our full recap of tonight's episode, "Zoso", in the episode guide.

Felicia and Hank.

Crass and predictable?? PLEASE. And don't equate it with Red Shoe Diaries unless you are really familiar with that series. The stories were always well written, well acted and didn't always include nudity tho the stories were always about relationships. And speaking of nudity, are you repulsed by it or just jealous of Jackie's body? After all she DOES portray a stripper. I don't think Californication has changed at all. Review some of the earlier (1st season) episodes.

Californication Season 3 Episode 4 Quotes

Hank: This is frowned upon.
Jackie: Give me a break. You once spent an entire class ranting about how much you hate Coldplay. Something tells me you could care less about what's frowned upon.
Hank: Still one of my favorite lectures.

Hank: You still love me?
Karen: Always, that's the problem.
