The best show on television is back. Californication returned with the premier episode of the fourth season last night — for those of you who don’t already watch tune in Sunday nights at 9:00pm EST on Showtime.
This is the best show on television, hands down. It’s hedonistic, wildly inappropriate, and quite juvenile — yet it’s fantastically written, acted, and with the season three finale easily became one of the most legitimate shows on TV. Showtime has struck gold with this one.
For those of you who watch already, Hank has finally managed to get himself in way over his head. The season premier also introduces a young new actress, Addison Timlin, who is nothing short of gorgeous. With football nearing an end, you should now have a date with your couch every Sunday night for a few more months.
Yes, this show is good enough that it warrants a post over the first round of the NFL playoffs. That said, this is a sports blog, so I’ll give you my ten second run down of the weekend’s events.
1) Michael Vick’s flashy season ended yesterday with an interception — I’m sure that few are weeping on his behalf. That said, he had to make a big play to get into the end zone and went down swinging. A disappointing loss for Vick and Eagles nation, for sure. While the Packers scare the hell out of me, as a Pats fan I’d rather play them than the Eagles. The Packers are a bit more predictable.
2) The Jets beat the Colts, eliminating Peyton Manning, which is awesome. The Jets will no doubt be fired up for their rematch with the Pats — who knows what Rex Ryan will be spewing before this game kicks off. Of course I think the Pats will handle their business and beat the Jets, but I’d expect the Jets to bring it. This game is not in the bag.
3) The Baltimore Ravens looked scary good. Please keep them away from me.
Now go watch Californication if you haven’t already.
