I definitely felt that season two of Californication improved on the first, laying more groundwork for future conflict and giving us some excellent character development for Hank and friends. This time, the stakes are much higher as it's plain to see Hank and Karen may not be as stable as they thought.
David Duchovny somehow does an even better job this season, with the cast already starting to have the kind of chemistry that happens after ten years together. I highly enjoyed Evan Handler this season, with his character Charlie going on a bizarre porn adventure that ends in disaster.
The star of this season was Callum Keith Rennie as weirdo rock star Lew Ashby. His scenes with Duchovny were the best in the season and the end of his arc is tragic to say the least. I continue to despise Mia for what she did to Hank and I am pissed that Hank isn't more pissed at her. Other than that, this season is a great addition to an enjoyable show.
