CALIFORNICATION “Suicide Solution” Advance Review

CALIFORNICATION “Suicide Solution” Season 4 Episode 2 – Last week on Californication Hank was released from jail and was spending his time holed up with Hollywood star Sasha Bingham (Addison Timlim). Charlie was interested in increasing his level of experience with the ladies and Karen still wanted nothing to do with Hank. The episode ended with Hank’s lawyer Abby (played by Carla Gugino) informing him the assault charges against him were being dropped but that he was now being charged with rape. Dun dun dun!

In episode 2, “Suicide Solution” Hank continues to work with his lawyer Abby, this time to resolve the new charges against him. Hank makes some progress getting back into his daughter, Becca’s, life. On the movie front, Hank meets with Eddie Nero, a movie star that is interested in playing him in the film. Marcy and Karen lean on each other as each are having their own problems. Rob Lowe, Carla Gugino, and Addison Timlin guest star.

I thought this was another awesome episode of Californication. The chemistry between Hank (David Duchovny) and Charlie (Evan Handler) is stronger than ever. Rob Lowe makes a memorable guest starring appearance and I hope this isn’t the last we see of his character, Eddie Nero. As I said last week, I feel like the foundation is getting set right now for a solid season of Californication. I love this show so much that I actually think I would think less of someone that didn’t like it. What can I say? It’s crazy but true. What do you think? I know it’s extremely early, but what are your thoughts on season 4 of Californication so far?

Don’t forget to check out Californication this Sunday January 16th at 9:00 PM on Showtime. After you’ve watched it, please leave me a comment and let me know what you thought!

    couldn’t agree more, it’s a phenomenal show, that i think emulates the new family dynamic, and the lives we actually lead, not the ones we think we lead. hank is far from perfect, but a good man at heart, which is what makes him so endearing. he is the true hero of his own tragedy, and the show doesn’t cave to the whims of the classic audience demand to see a happy ending, he keeps screwing up, and it its what makes hank, hank. some may think of him as a dirtbag, others a cocksman, and yet others simply a man whose found what he wants and lost it seemingly forever…

    Couldn’t have said it any better myself Darren, well spoken sir!

  • 100% Agreed! I don’t think I’d like anyone who didn’t like it either!
