CALIFORNICATION “Freeze Frame” Advance Review

CALIFORNICATION “Freeze Frame” Season 4 Episode 5 – I got a sneak peek at this week’s episode of Showtime’s Californication, an episode called “Freeze Frame”. However, before I dish about “Freeze Frame” let me first refresh your memory on last week’s epic episode. Hank, Stewart, and Charlie went to a billionaire’s (played by Fisher Stevens) house for a business meeting and chaos ensues. Charlie gets bit by and kills a monkey while having relations with a lady, and the billionaire dies whilst pleasing himself. While this is going on, Becca pratices with her new band “The Queens of Dogtown” and Karen comforts Marcy who finds out she is pregnant.

In “Freeze Frame”, Becca’s band has their first gig at the legendary Whiskey A Go-Go. Charlie finally takes the plunge into the world of man-scaping however it doesn’t exactly go as planned. Marcy comes to Charlie’s aid and Hank comes to the aid of Mia who needs some guidance. Once again Hank finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Zoë Kravitz (daughter of Lenny Kravitz) guest stars as the singer in Becca’s band, and Carla Gugino guest star’s as Hank’s lawyer.

Personally, I thought this was another stellar episode of Californication. It wasn’t as crazy as last week’s episode but the way I look at it is that if the writers gave us dead monkeys and billionaire’s every week the show would just get old. So in my opinion, I enjoyed that it was a bit more tame this week. Also, how great has Zoë Kravitz been in the episodes up to now? I assume she does her own singing – does anybody know for sure? Don’t forget to watch Californication this Sunday on Showtime at 9:00 pm. After you have watched the show, please come back, leave me a comment and let me know what you thought!
