David Duchovny returns to series television with a bang.
(Several, actually. But more on these carnal exploits in a minute.)
In his new dramedy, Californication (TMN, 9 tonight), Duchovny plays Hank Moody, an aptly named novelist who is freefalling through a personal crisis. Meaning, Hank is indulging in the kind of reckless, self-destructive actions we've come to expect from the morally ambiguous characters that populate cable.
Hank smokes. He drinks. He drugs. He insults. He brawls. And, yes, he beds a parade of keen women, including one Lolita who turns out to be all of 16 (though Hank doesn't know this at the time).
