Life in the entertainment industry is fast-paced, unfair and full of surprises. One slip-up can create a domino effect. Hollywood isn’t as cracked up as some would hope. Granted, Californication has shown us that before, but we get an even closer look as we watch Hank’s first day producing an episode of Santa Monica Cop. As is often the case, he’s sidetracked by many issues, but they make for one entertaining viewing.
Last week ended with Hank reminding Charlie that, no matter what they’ve been through, they find a way to weather the gloomy storms that come their way. “Smile” has them weathering smaller storms this week, but preparing for larger ones that are forming as a result of their actions.
