Season five was thankfully lighter fare, but the writers again felt compelled to throw in an unexpected and unwelcome curve right before the buzzer sounded. Some may still be waiting in anticipation, but I'm sick of waiting in dread.

It seems fitting that the show's production company is Aggressive Mediocrity Inc. because that's exactly what Californication is headed toward unless something is done to breathe life back into this series.

Kapinos's resolve to find a fresh approach for Californication wherever it may be sacrifices some of the show's consistent strengths, such as Hank and Charlie's brotherly relationship.

That's the great pleasure of Californication. It's never stayed grounded for very long, even within single exchanges or encounters, let alone entire episodes.
