Californication

(2 votes)

Californication tv seriesHank Moody, a charming writer and novelist plagued with personal demons blames his years-long case of writer's block on a variety of reasons, ranging from the hedonism of Los Angeles, to his on-again, off-again relationship with his girlfriend Karen. Hank constantly deals with the fallout of his sex addiction, while trying to show his family that he can be a good, caring person.

Hank is wallowing deep in self-loathing following the release of "A Crazy Little Thing Called Love," a sub-par yet popular movie adaptation to his most recent novel, "God Hates Us All." After picking up a younger woman in a bookstore, he finds out she is actually Bill's 16-year-old daughter, Mia. Hank spends most of his time boozing and not writing. Mia continues to haunt Hank during his visits to his family, using the threat of statutory rape to steal stories for her creative writing class. The death of his father triggers a bender and an eventual sexual encounter with Karen. After the funeral, Hank stays in New York to finish a manuscript for a new novella. However, when Hank returns to LA, the original copy is lost when his car is stolen. But Mia has retained her own copy, and chooses to pass the work off as her own. On Karen and Bill's wedding day, Hank chooses to accept the way things are. But as he leaves the reception with his daughter Becca, Karen runs out and jumps into the car, riding into a new life together.

John Amsterdam, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective is immortal. He is 400 years old, but his body structure is that of a 35-year-old. Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
