No, it’s not the blatant T&A that draws me to this show – altho that is certainly welcome (no honey, it’s not porn, it’s Showtime and an acclaimed director/actor combination!) It is the similarity I see between myself and the lead character – and before you guffaw, he isn’t some gleaming paragon of society – he is a washed up loser who had a one-hit wonder novel and now lives the life of a scofflaw who beds hot chicks while working on the next great American novel.
I don’t associate with that – I associate with his disdain for popular culture and people in general. Which leads to his self-loathing. Which I can empathize with, while not completely associating with.
That is super poor grammar in the previous sentence, but I’m too lazy to fix it.
Anyhow – SHO shows Californication on Mondays at 1030. Since I don’t have SHO, I have to resort to alternative means to watch it. This annoys me, because I’d gladly pay $3/episode if they offered that online service. Alas, they don’t. So, in the words of Hank, "fuck ’em".
