According to David Duchovny, ever since the show moved from being aired in the fall to being aired in the spring, Tom Kapinos wrote every season finale as a possible series finale. This is because the shooting schedule hasn't changed that much, so when the show premieres in January, the season has been shot for months. See more »

A solid new comedy series with top drawer performance from Duchovny
From its controversial opening scene to its excellent finale, the first episode of "Californication" sets the tone for the series. Stylishly directed by the always-reliable Stephen Hopkins, the pilot is thoroughly entertaining adult comedy. Watching the first episode reminded me a little of a modern Blake Edwards' production.
The cast are excellent, especially David Duchovny as the seedy Hank Moody, a man whose mid-life crisis is on display for all to see, from his Porsche to his constant bed-hopping.
The script is sharp and the whole show exudes quality.
