So I've been catching up on Californication, which means I watched the whole first season over the course of 3 days, and I have to say, I generally enjoyed the show. The presence of naked breasts may have been a contributing factor, along with some thoroughly amusing moments. But there were two fairly major bits of plot that sucked some of the entertainment out for me. The whole "stealing his book" storyline had some really good moments, but it also had huge swathes of things being done wrong just to move the plot along. Most noticeably for me was the fact that she took the manuscript to his agent, which was just pure daftness on her behalf, and it was pure dumb luck that the right person was reading the slush-pile. But that was mainly a fridge moment, and really didn't interfere much with my enjoyment during the show. The majority of the BDSM stuff, on the other hand, really jarred me. Mainly because I have trouble believing that a) its possible to find two hip, LA culture type people that have no idea about BDSM and B) that anyone could do that bad a job explaining the general idea.
