lucifer-2015

Creator: Tom Kapinos

Cast: Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro

Comic book-based TV shows are becoming so common those days I have review more than a few. It is in fashion it seems and people can’t get enough. It’s based on the DC/Vertigo series from the ’90s.

Lucifer Morningstar ( Tom Ellis  ) needs a vacation so he decided to take off for L.A.When we meet him, he’s moved to Los Angeles and opened a nightclub .The ruler of Hell has come to Earth to solve crimes on a weekly basis. He gets hooked up sort with a detective who also happens to be a single mother to the world’s most adorable kid.There are the usual flippant jokes, but our anti-hero who has  a darker more sexual edge also goes to a shrink don’t ask. It seems that Lucifer has the ability to charm any girls he wants except the detective. Plus he is going through some changes well no you are going to have to see the series. Plus, humans can’t help but spill their deepest, darkest secrets to him. This makes the solving of crimes ridiculously easy. There is twist and turn and it is so enjoyable to see. One down fall it is on Fox therefore no nudity or cursing. Well I enjoyed this show with a bottle of whiskey. Sin away if you dare. It is a sinful guilty pleasure hot as hell of a series.

CALIFORNICATION (2007 – 2014)

Californication

Creator: Tom Kapinos

Cast: David Duchovny, Natascha McElhone, Evan Handler

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.

Creator: Tom Kapinos.

Cast: David Duchovny, Natascha McElhone, Evan Handler.

A self-loathing, alcoholic writer attempts to repair his damaged relationships with his daughter and her mother. In the mean time he is a sex addict, who uses drug and possibly an alcoholic trying to get to write an other book after the success of his first one. Good luck with that one buddy.

Great series but most women are not going to like that one however most man will. In this series you will experience Dark sarcasm, Big egos, cigarettes, booze, drugs, and defeatism so fasten you seat belt and enjoy the ride. Here it is you have a writer who is New York has a big success on his first book that turned into a movie and made a lot of money. Then has writer’s block losing the relationship with his girlfriend and daughter and ends up in Los Angeles for a new start. on the top of that he is trying to re candle the relationship with his girlfriend and daughter.  Here is the thing Duchovny went into treatment because he was a sex addict. life imitate arts. There is some raunchy moments in this series and you might be offended but on the other hand for some people won’t be. This show is not for kids it is an adult humor and sarcasms. It is a wild ride of self loathing  and what better to do it in Los Angeles. Duchovny character goes downhill from there and his escapade are escalating  at a speed of a elevator that is going down. His daughter has growing up quickly as she see threw him. Hank is trying to be a father to her but with his self loathing drug and alcohol consumption is figures out that it is not easy nor trying to get back to his girlfriend.
