Californication Season Five Thread **spoilers**

Thread for Californication Season Five, airing Jan thru Mar 2012. There be spoilers!

Season thoughts: I am loving this season. It's like they rejuvenated the show. Hank is not quite so ******y, and it seems like they are mixing the characters up a little more. We get some Marcie, some Becca, some Charlie, but not too much. Loved Natalie Zea (Wie-no-nah from Justified) as Carrie. Like the Kali & Samurai story line. Even Batesy is great.

Latest episode thoughts: This is about "Love Song", the 2/12 episode. Is this the first time we've seen a true flashback? Hank as the committed, monogamous lover? And Hank wants to go back to NYC, but it's Karen that decides they stay in CA.

Great season. Unlike say Weeds, that seems to be running on empty, or Entourage going thru the motions, here the writing is crisp, the story lines fresh.

Very fun show. Interesting how you want Hank to get back together with his babies mama but they are so toxic. Wonder how they end the series. Season 6 has been given a go so at least for awhile.

My wife and I were just remarking last night about how great it is that they've been able to keep this dynamic going throughout the show, no matter how eff'd up the characters get. Whatever happens, we always feel the love between Karen and Hank. Really well done.

So Hank was monogamous until they got to LA? I've known a couple of guys like him, and they were born that way. No way he just flipped once he got to LA.

But I agree, I was starting to only watch this show because "I had to", kind of like Weeds. It is back to being fun again!

Hated the middle of the finale (part at the movie set) but liked the ending. Though not that much of a cliffhanger with the ad for Season 6 coming SOON right after.
