Show Summary

Charlie is a well-to-do jingle-writing bachelor with a house at the beach in Malibu, a luxury car in the garage, and an easy way with women. His casual lifestyle is interrupted when his tightly wound chiropractor brother Alan, who's facing a divorce, and his son Jake, come to live with him. Together, these two and a half men confront the challenges of growing up. Complicating matters are the brothers' self-obsessed, controlling mother, Evelyn, Alan's estranged wife, Judith, and Charlie's crazy neighbor Rose, who wants to be a part of his life and is willing to do anything to be around.

After season 8, Charlie was killed off and replaced by a wealthy bachelor named Walden who befriends Alan, buys Charlie's home, and lets Alan continue to live there.

  • This Show Ran Much Too Long

    At first, it was funny. A man who got thrown out of his house, had nowhere to go, and had to raise his kid around an uncle who brought different girls home every night, and was drunk a lot of the time. Much as the show progressed, and especially when charlie died, I stopped understanding the point. It is one thing for someone to mooch off their brother for years, but mooching off a stranger? C'mon Alan. It's time to get a life buddy.moreless
  • The original show died with "Charlie Harper"

    Season 11 with Amber Tamblyn was some what okay but otherwise much of it's comedy was over by season 7 and it stopped being funnier in season 8 and died with Charlie Harper. Cryer is a good actor and so is Kutcher but Charlie Sheen was the "soul" of this show but even in his presence season 8 was dull. I think they over dragged the show. Season 7 should have been its "finale" with Charlie marrying Chelsea and Alan moving out either as gay with Herb or as straight with Judith or whatever end for him after all the show was never about "Alan Harper". I'll rate it 7 for the first 7 great seasons.moreless
  • A mixed bag, for now, anyway.

    At first when I saw the show, it was about Charlie, Alan, and Jake. The supporting cast were excellent, but it was about the 2 1/2 men basically. Yes the jokes were sop***ric, (it reminded me of Porky's), but it was funny, and the three main guys were involved most of the funny moments. John Cryer is a bit underrated, because he did carry a lot of scenes and set up Charlie for most of his sarcastic, but very funny, lines. But I feel that after Jake got older, and especially after Charlie left, the chemistry is missing. Jake is hardly in most of the recent episodes, and I don't even know who some of the characters are. But that is not the real problem. The problem is that Charlie had most of the punch lines, and what he didn't have, Berta, Jake, Rose, and Alan filled it up. Nowadays, there are so many new characters, that it doesn't quite work. Compare it to Cheers, in which the main female lead left halfway through the run. In that show, there was so much support and subplot storyline comedy from the ensemble cast, that it actually got In this case, the show lost its way, and when I watch newer episodes, I don't get most of the relationships, let alone the jokes. There is one huge talent, though, and that is John Cryer. He carries the later shows more than even Charlie did in the early ones. Although, Charlie seemed to play it with no effort - He was the character. I miss those days when Rose would come over the wall, only for Berta or Jake to say something funny, then Charlie would answer with an even funnier casual line.

    I kind of want to know why the auto editor took out the word so-pho-mor-ic? It was not a H0-mo-pho-bic Haha.moreless
  • I acted in the show.

    It was a great experience!! Awesome!!!
  • Pot and penis jokes are never funny

    In the new seasons of Two and a Half Men you can find two types of jokes: penis jokes and pot jokes. But they're never funny.
