Hank Moody (David Duchovny) was a famous writer wrote a successful book that run into a movie, than suddenly nothing for years. He lost his love of his life, they broke up of which he has a 13 years old daughter going on 30. He has this let’s say little problem he is a self-loathing, drug , boozing , cigarette smoking, womanizing somewhat loser bad boy image that he can’t shake off well it is addictive to top it all off he wants to get back with his ex. His agent wants him to write an other book, and his daughter wants him to grow up, yeah! that is going to happen.
Here is a series that single out the woman. It is targeted for men of course. It bust with cliché but who cares it is fun to watch. Here is somehow a ‘à something man who somehow went off the deep end went into a boozing screwing women and doing a line of coke on a hooker’s ass Hank is having fun and does not care too much about anything else. It is well written and so well acted, the casting is perfect this series could not be better. David Duchovny and Natascha McElhone give the Hank/Karen relationship some sense of love complete with flirtation, frustration,yelling at each other and unwilling attraction. Also there is moody as a father who lacks of emotional stability. He is trying to get his ex girlfriend back but keeps enmeshing it up. This series in noy for kids by the way obviously. The show is raw and shocking, while still being moving and engaging and it is not for everybody, but it is a good time. they did take risks on this one even the actors it is not easy to be in bed with an actress and you are going to do this and that , they really pushed the envelope to the limit. It all came to an end but you can get it on DVD and watch over again.
