7 Reasons Why You Need To Revisit Californication

One of the greatest comedy dramas on TV needs a re-watch...

Showtime

Californication ran between 2007 and 2014, detailing the often ridiculous and sometimes heartbreaking exploits of Hank Moody (David Duchovny), a famous writer suffering from writers block and attempting to get his family back together, something he himself usually gets in the way of.

Starring Duchovny alongside Evan Handler, Natasha McElhone and Pamela Adlon, the show was created by Tom Kapinos, loosely based on the iconic writer Charles Bukoswksi, and often found itself singled out during its run because of its explicit sex, constant alcohol and drug use, and imaginative profanity.

Needless to say, it can be a divisive show for many, but for the most part it's firmly placed as one of the best comedy dramas on TV, with talks of a revival being in the air since it came to an end after its seventh season.

Receiving solid viewership at the time of its release, it is now regarded as a cult classic.

The following list will have an in-depth look at the reasons Californication needs to be seen - whether you've watched it previously or not at all. Funny, touching, and funny some more, here are seven reasons the show is in need of a revisit.
