Anyone on board for these shows? Because I had completely forgotten that I watch Californication. But I guess I'll wait until about half way into the season and catch-up.

I still enjoy Californication, and still fast forward through Shameless for Emmy Rossum boobs, although I suspect we've seen the last of them.

Watched all three shows last night (free Showtime weekend, so actually got to see them right after they aired).

Californication - thought it was alright, plot took a decent turn but they might be taking the show in a pretty shitty direction.

Shameless - holy fuck did they shake things up a little bit. The show is good at getting you comfortable and then fucking everything up... you actually forget about the statutory ****, down-syndrome baby, suicide, etc etc.

House of Lies - exact same show as it was last season. Drinking, fucking, and fast talking.

I don't think it's worth its own thread, but House Of Lies is a lot of fun.

The pedo bit was great and hot.
The pedo bit would have been so much better if I didn't see it in the previews last week. It would have been awesome if she opened the door and I wasn't expecting it to be a hot blonde. They give way too much away in previews.

Don't watch them? Besides its not like they were going to have 15 people beating the shit out of somebody anyway on that show.

I normally prefer Brunettes, but Maggie Grace looks incredible as a blond.

I just read that it's the season finale of Californication tonight and I have to ask. Is it worth picking up? Because I haven't watched an episode all season and I haven't been missing it at all. I assume someone on here watches it still.

I watch it... it's kind of a toss up. I think it's still worth 30 minutes a week.

If I abandon this season and come back next season, would I have missed anything?

Eh... kind of. There's a small Hank in rehab story arc, and an evil feminist. Runkle acts like one of the gays to get clients.

I kind of got the sense that this is the next to last season, but of course they haven't said that.

But couldn't you say that about pretty much every season?

I have the last six episodes on my HD unwatched, but have been watching every episode Shameless the night it uploads. It got that way with Dexter and Burn Notice when I quit watching those.
