Definition of awkward: watching a show on TV with your parentals and seeing three sex scenes with topless women and naked man bum before the first half hour was over.
This new show from Showtime stars David Duchovny as a writer from NYC, whose sole novel had been turned into a movie and he now lives in LA. In the first episode, we know that he is having a major writer’s block and he has a 12 year-old daughter whom he enjoys spending time with. And we know that even though he has lots of empty sex with women he barely knows, he yearns to get back with his ex-girlfriend, the mother of his daughter and be a family again.
There’s nudity, cuss words and tightly written dialogue. And remember the little girl from “The Nanny”, Madeline Zima? She’s one of the topless women mentioned and man she’s grown up very nicely. Phwoar!
Incidentally, David Duchovny was in a movie called “Kalifornia” (1993) with Brad Pitt, in which he was also shown having sex.

From X-Files to this …
