Californication—Early Thoughts

In spite of being a big David Duchovny fan--of his acting, his writing/directing and his general hotness--I've been feeling a little meh about his upcoming new Showtime series Californication. From the promotional materials, it seemed a little over the top as far as content and subject matter. A quick peek at parts of some early scripts, though, has me a bit more enthusiastic. Yes, it's over the top, but so are Weeds and Dexter, and I didn't expect to like either of those shows, either. The excerpts are quick and witty, and made me chuckle a couple of times, which is always a good sign. I was planning to tune in just to check it out, but this makes me want to a bit more than I did before.

Californication premieres Monday, August 13th at 10:30 EST on Showtime.

And I'll have some early thoughts on other upcoming shows over the next few days.
