What a worthy season finale. Californication and David Duchovny at their best.


10/10

 finale was amazing, made me seriously reconsider the whole family situation especially in light of what someone on here said, "other than sex and a family, there's nothing a woman can give a man that he can't get himself"

Californication is an amazing series. Hank Moody does the most retarded shit in the world. Right there in that one moment and loses it all. Yet I can't help but think I'd probably do something similar under those circumstances. And the season finale definitely raised some seriously compelling questions!!!

This was more fucked up than Rita dying on Dexter if you ask me. 

His family is destroyed by his actions/sexual compulsion/game, and he goes to jail. 

The choice of "Rocket Man" for the last scene was perfect and actually made me understand the song in an entirely different way; as an allegory about a guy who has a certain aspect of his personality that must be indulged which alienates him from people who care about him. 

When you develop your game to Moody levels it is in fact like going on a fucking rocket ship into space... it's a different world that most people will never see. It is an amazing adventure and it's a solitary journey in a lot of ways. You're like this fuckin hero, and it's a dirty job... but somebody has to do it. This show is about grappling with that. You can return to Earth periodically but you will always be tempted to go back to space... I mean, hell, it's your fucking DUTY. You're the goddamn ROCKET MAN.

She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Zero hour nine a.m.
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
It's lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I'm a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone

Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact it's cold as hell
And there's no one there to raise them if you did
And all this science I don't understand
It's just my job five days a week
A rocket man, a rocket man

And I think it's gonna be a long long time...

oops

To be fair, it is Tuesday... it's safe to say at this point you could have run into that particular spoiler *anywhere* on the internet.

Aaaaah yeah I wait til the DVDs come out, no TV.  But I think they'll ressurect her in some sort of Satanistic ritual, or else make way for a hotter new girlfriend.
