Based on just one brief video clip, I was excited enough about David Duchovny's new Showtime comedy, "Californication," to name it one of my top 10 reasons to keep your TV on this summer. Showtime has now released a longer, movie trailer-style preview for the series, and it's just made me even more excited to see the show for myself.
In "Californication," Duchovny stars as a self-destructive novelist who's managed to thoroughly wreck his relationship with his girlfriend and finds himself living a life full of drugs, drinking, and general bad news while not-so-secretly pining for his old, more stable situation. Duchovny looks to have a great touch with comedy, but my favorite part of this preview is Madeleine Martin, the young actress who plays Duchovny's daughter; she gets all of the best laugh lines in this clip. To watch for yourself,
