I am not usually very fond of TV and have praised myself often for keeping away from it, even totally without it while living in the Country of the TV. Even the recent surge of TV series seasons on DVD had not caught me. Getting to know Neil Postman and his great books had further strengthened this idea.

However, just very recently, I checked out the first episode of Californication which I accidentally borrowed from yzt and I have to admit that I am blown away by it. Very close the the end of the second season and I have really liked it so far. Great actors, nice pace, wonderful music, good balance and containing good food for the thought below the seemingly hedonistic layers, oh, and nice to see the details of LA one more time. Quite cool.

Yes I used to like the first season but the second one is full of cheaters and everyone is sleeping with everyone else. I hate to see family values degrading at that level and showing all the adulthood and adultery as if just normal.

Yes and this is the easiest escape from loneliness and insecurity. Shows the status of the great city ;), alas, there should be a reason why Prozac is number one selling drug over there.
There should be a reason why Maynard wants to see it flushed all away ;).

In line with reminding you of the 'principles' i.e. osool!, I suggest you to go back to basic an take a look at Seinfeld series, I'm sure it helps you a lot in dealing with Chewie issues in your life.
