should i watch californication? like will it get to the point where i can look past all the sex and actually care what happens?
YES. Honestly, you won’t regret it. It’s one of the realest depictions of family life I’ve seen executed on television. It’s not sugar coated, it shows how turbulent and fucked up life can be.
When I first watched it, granted the sex and stuff kinda floored me (I hadn’t really watched anything with that much sex in before). But once the shock of that wore off, which was probably four or so episodes in, I mainly just focused on Hank’s mission to get the love of his life and his family back to together. Which is the core of the show.
Plus, it has the best soundtrack I’ve ever seen on a television show and the show itself is fucking hilarious. So give it a shot. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but don’t go by people saying it’s just a show about sex. That’s such a minuscule part of it. Plus they can get it away with it, so they flaunt the fact they can I guess.
WATCH IT!! Yes, it has a lot of sex and is very vulgar, but as SpookyMulder said, it’s more about Hank, the love of his life and their daughter. It’s incredibly emotional. Sweet, sad, tragic, heartbreaking, beautiful…all of that and so much more. This show deserves so much more recognition, and Hank and Karen are one of our all time most favorite ships. One of the most painful, but sweetest, too. Don’t let all the sex and cursing turn you away, because it’s a very beautiful show with a great storyline, great music, and great characters. My best friend and I miss this show so much and it’s one of our favorites with Hank and Karen (Haren) being one of our favorite couples, too.
