Background

It’s been almost three months since BAMF Style has checked in with Hank Moody, the hero of Californication. In “California Son”, Hank had just come to terms with the death of his father with the help of a roll in the sack with ex-girlfriend Karen. He departs LAX for a brief exodus home to JFK, returning a few weeks later. Upon his return in the next episode, Hank is pleasantly surprised to find Karen waiting outside LAX but soon discovers that she is there to meet boring dial tone Bill – her fiance – rather than Hank. Hank makes the best of this uncomfortable situation. Continue reading

Venice Beach, Summer 2007

Series: Californication
Episode: “Girls Interrupted” (Episode 1.07)
Air Date: September 24, 2007
Director: Tucker Gates
Costume Designer: Peggy A. Schnitzer

Background

As one of the first episodes to feature more heavily on the Flanderization of Charlie Runkle, Hank gets relatively less screen time than usual in “Girls Interrupted”, the seventh episode of the first season.

When we do see him, the attire is all pretty standard. We do get a better look at the green button-down he wore earlier in the season and finally find out about Hank’s signature dish, an infamous conglomeration of cheese for the whole family! Continue reading

Series: Californication
Episode: “Absinthe Makes the Heart Grow Fonder” (Episode 1.06)
Air Date: September 17, 2007
Director: Ken Whittingham
Costume Designer: Peggy A. Schnitzer

Background

Hank eases through this episode, the sixth in the first season, in some very typical Moody attire, stuff that we should be getting used to seeing by now. The most interesting change-ups for Hank are an unseen T-shirt and some overly preppy Dad clothes.

In this episode, all Hank wants to do is go see his daughter perform with her band in Venice Beach. Instead, he has his record collection stolen with his favorite T-shirt and guitar, he is forced to deal with a pedophiliac coke-addicted high school teacher, and he ends up soaked in a swimming pool. However, the night ends on a good note for our hapless hero. Continue reading

Californication – Pilot Episode

In honor of Wednesday being hump day, I present the first article on someone who does plenty of humping as well.

A far cry from Cary Grant or William Powell, Hank’s simple but individual style has been one of the most inquired about and copied since Californication‘s debut in 2007. This is interesting (and ironic?), because what maks Hank so appealing is the way that he avoids copying anyone else.

Episode: “Pilot” (Episode 1.01)
Air Date: August 13, 2007
Director: Stephen Hopkins
Costume Designer: Peggy A. Schnitzer

Background

The first time we meet Hank Moody is cinematic and instantly and hilariously establishes his character. With the operatic intro to the Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” playing, he pulls up to a grand-looking California church in his dirty and beat-up black Porsche. He exits the car, his permanent hangover causing him to squint at the sun through his sunglasses. A half-smoked Camel dangles from his mouth. He removes the sunglasses, looks at the church with agony, and raises his hand to the cigarette. Continue reading
