What I'm Watching: Californication

Californication: Season 2, Episode 2 "The Great Ashby" (B+)

So I do like this show a lot, but I'm appalled at the crazy direction it's taken. I'm speaking specifically about Charlie and Marcy. Watching Charlie watch himself masturbating intensely at every possible moment is both troubling and amusing. The two of them really are crazy, but I'm glad that a lot of the focus is on them now. Carla Gallo's guest appearance as Marcy's porn actress massage patient was all too brief, but I'm rather excited about another recurring guest star whose role just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Callum Keith Rennie, a.k.a. Leoben from "Battlestar Galactica," is Hank's new friend who may just help reboot both his and Charlie's career, and I'm excited to see more of him. Currently things are in a state of panic, and while I said last week that I worried about things becoming too normalized, I'd be happy to see everyone's lives return to relative stability soon.
