What I'm Watching: Californication (Season Premiere)

Californication: Season 2, Episode 1 "Slip of the Tongue" (B+)

Here it is, the return of last year's most underrated and Emmy-snubbed new comedy! And what a terrific return it is, successfully addressing the question of what's next for Hank Moody. With him finally happy and with the girl of his dreams, would there be nowhere left to go? Luckily, that's not the case. His vasectomy is a funny plotline and the way he interacts with both his daughter and that jailbait daughter of Bill's. He does of course manage to get himself into the usual sort of trouble when he accidentally starts going down on the wrong woman, but what else is new? The epitome of the greatness of this show is evidenced by its closing scene. Hank and Karen get pulled over, and she manages to note that he's high and that he's been drinking all while sort of trying to defend him. And of course, since things can never end well for Hank, he gets hit right in the vasectomy at the end of the episode. What a terrific show, bring on the rest of the episodes.
