Californication, a new Showtime series, debuted last night. I should have skipped it and gone to bed earlier. What a piece of crap. The show stars David Duchovny as Hank Moody, a writer suffering from writer's block trying to get his career back on track. Basically the show is him having one night stand after one night sand. Perhaps this will become a story of fall and redemption and by the end Hank will realize that one night stands are not the way to move forward in one's life.

This show does have some funny moments though. The best last night was when in the middle of doing the nasty, Hank's partner du jour Mia punches him in the face...twice. It was hysterical. Later we learn that Mia is the 16 year old daughter of Hank's ex-girlfriend's fiancée. Yikes!!! But the MOST upsetting this about this is that Mia is played by Madeline Zima. Ms. Zima played Gracie, the youngest child on The Nanny. Digest that for a moment. I saw little Gracie's boobies last night while she was having sex with David Duchovny and simultaneously punching him in the face.

To me it seemed more like a continuation of Duchovny's other Showtime series, The Red Shoe Diaries, only this time he is the one who gets to have sex. I don't think I will be watching again.
