Hey Matt -- Worth struggling through season three just for Callum Keith Rennie, who quietly (and increasingly) is stealing the show.

huh... yeah, I figured this show would mirror Duchovny's personal life and fall apart pretty quickly.  I've sort of half watched an episode or two this season and it's been okay.  The porn angle they're working is awkward and seems forced.  I don't really like it at all, even though it means tits and crazy sex all over the place. 

Honestly, I am forced to sit through so much "relationship melodrama" type television (all of it horrible), that this really kind of starts blending in with everything else in my mind.  I don't care how great he is, I don't want to sit and listen to Hank and his ex-wife complain about their relationship for 10 minutes.  About all that separates it in my mind is the occasional caustic line or F-bomb thrown out by Hank.

I've hated the ex-wife since the beginning.  And the robotic daughter.  I'd much rather the drunken modern-day Salinger slowly decaying. 

It's really a hard show to watch, yes.  I stick with it for Duchovny, tits, sex, the occasional bawdy dinner party comedy, and now Callum Rennie.

Oh man... the dinner party was great.  You're right though... they need to ditch the ex-wife and the daughter, but they never will.  They're what keeps Hank grounded in reality.  It would be much more fun to see him going crazy by himself.

I will definitely still watch this if it comes on, but I'm not going to go out of my way to catch it.
