* Does anybody else wonders why they never considered using the RedHotChiliPeppers' song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlUKcNNmywk&ob=av2e Californication]] as the opening theme? That way they could have avoided some confusion, and the lawsuit they got from them.

**According to TheOtherWiki there were legal issues and the RHCP actually sued the producers of the show for the usage of the name, but it was dismissed in court as the word "Californication" wasn't invented by RHCP and is in public domain. So, probably that's why the band never allow the use of the song, assuming the producers of the show wanted to.

* At the end of season 5, why the hell did Hank drive all the way back to Malibu to get a bottle of wine, instead of just picking one up at a store on the way to dinner? Sounds like a bit of Frige Logic to me.

* Re "The Apartment," episode in season 3...Doesn't anyone call before they drop by someone's house?

Added DiffLines:

* Whatever happened to Mia? How about Faith and Atticus? There are other recurring characters who just sort of drifted away over the course of the series, but I really wish the last episodes would have brought some closure to those three characters in particular.

** Everything after Karen calls Hank screams that the scenes were added at the last minute so that there'd be a plot for season 6.

** I don't think the song fits the mood of the series. The series is an upbeat dramatic comedy about the irreverent adventures of a washed up writer, dealing more with his relationships. Californication the song is rather solemn song about the trap of seeking fame in Hollywood. It wouldn't work well as the theme song.
