Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • worst episode ever

    This episode was crap with a capital C. For the 1st time ever i did not laugh once in a two and a half men episode it was that bad. Charlie really needs to be a bachelor again, Alan and Melissa relationship sucks, Jake is just Plain annoying now, barely any Rose,Bertha or Evelyn now.

    I have no idea what they were thinking for the premier but this episode was bad. Don't get me wrong i'm a huge fan of two and a half men but this is probably the 1st(and hopefully last) episode i have had a big problem with.moreless
  • And people wonder why they didn't get an Emmy nom. for "Best Comedy".

    A long time ago, I decided that "T.A.A.H.M." would never be my favorite sitcom (SEINFELD instead). Why? A lot of reasons, but mostly the inconsistency between the episodes, which is worst in this show 'cuz almost ev'ry episode has the same writers. I mean, come on! In season 3, MIA was like the perfect woman. Always so sweet, and it seemed obvious that she would end up being ChARLIE's "The one". But now, all of the sudden she's a girl who wants to sleep with CHARLIE, even though he's engaged, and it's too stupid to know she can't sing?! I know she was supposed to only be in one episode, but if the writers wanted an excuse, they could've done it without ruining the character. I guess that since in the previous episode the audience wanted her over CHELSEA, and she just became a regular, they wanted the audience likin' CHELSEA better. Anyway, it was funny as always, so I won't put a bad score.moreless
  • charlie finally makes his choice!

    this episode was well written and we finally get to see who charlie wanted to be with. the parts that made me laugh out loud were when charlie stated that alan looks like his pooh and when Mia swore when the speaker was off. speaking of alan his on off girlfriend melissa moves into the house oblivious to charlie.

    anyway Mia says she missed charlie and wanted him to help her on her singing/music she has a sucky voice but she thinks its perfect. i thought when the two kissed and Mia wanted to go back to her place charlie would choose her i was even saying at the tv screen no charlie no. BUT he ended up choosing chelsea. also the therapy part was funny to. Also what Mia did to charlie in season 4 charlie is now doing to her what can you say Mia paybacks a bi**h Emmanuelle acting was also goodmoreless
  • Se atentarmos ao fato de que Charlie personifica nossos desejos, não tão secretos, não é de se admirar tanto sucesso dessa série. Mas talvez o que mais me chama a atenção...moreless

    Alcoólatra, mulherengo, com uma certa dose de irresponsabilidade e mesmo assim o adoramos. Qual o segredo? Confesso que quando conheci esta série a 7 anos atrás, não poderia acreditar que gastaria meu tempo com esta comédia. Ledo Ivo engano, não só desprendi meu tempo como o espaço também, colecionando os episódios.

    Se atentarmos ao fato de que Charlie personifica nossos desejos, não tão secretos, não é de se admirar tanto sucesso dessa série. Mas talvez o que mais me chama a atenção, e os roteiristas sabem disso, é como ele vai sair das encrencas que se mete e qual será a próxima vítima (!?).

    Nesta temporada Charlie terá que fazer uma escolha, ou por quanto tempo permanecerá fiel a sua amada. E no primeiro episódio ele já é testado. Um dos grandes amores do passado, Mia (Emmanuelle Vaugier) - estonteante como sempre, ou o seu grande amor, como desejar, aparece e provoca Charlie, afinal ele já teria feito o mesmo com ela no dia de seu casamento, provocando uma confusão danada, cancelando... ah, você deve se lembrar. Mas agora Mia tem um desafio, quer lançar um single. E, que voz, os "American Idols" que se cuidem, pois ela irá deixar todos de queixo caído, ou ouvido, como desejarem.

    Charlie deveria ajudá-la? Sua amada, atual, Chelsea (Jennifer Taylor), se sentiria ameaçada?

    Prepare-se para se divertir, pois a turma do "Two and a Half Man" está pronta para isso. O irmão de Charlie, Alan Harper (Jon Cryer), está mais invejoso do que nunca, mas pelo menos não está só, enquanto isso uma dúvida paira no ar, sua ex-esposa teria tido um filho seu ou não? As pistas são dadas por seu filho, Jake Harper (Angus T. Jones), numa cena hilária com Berta (Conchata Ferrell), que sempre rouba a cena.

    Agora cuidado para não adquirir prisão-de-ventre de tanto rir, pois você ficará com ela pelo menos até o próximo episódio.

    Para finaliza deixo com vocês uma frase emblemática dita por Chelsea: - Não se preocupe Charlie, eu confio em você.

    Então tá então, até o nosso próximo encontro.moreless
  • Two and a half men Season 7 Episode 1

    This was a REALLY funny episode, i laughed out loud in 2 or 3 scenes wich is what the show is all about, laughing.

    Was nice to see charlie picking Chelsea over Mia, i think Chelsea is way more pretty.

    Oral sex joke was nice as well as the scene in the Recording studio with the guy "shooting himself" when Mia said she didn`t know she was so good.

    I'm looking forward to see what happens with Alan's baby (or maybe it isn't?) and also seeing how they keep the show going since ovbiously there will be fights between charlie and chelsea that will make it fun, but also in about 3 seasons Jake will be like 18-19 years old, and that would be intresting, imagine his driving test? XD

    Very good episode and looking forward to the next one which i think airs tomorow.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Charlie: I'm thinking it's psychosomatic 'cause I've tried coffee, fiber, laxatives, and something my housekeeper said was a suppository, but I now suspect was a practical joke.

    • Berta: So, how do you like having a new baby sister?
      Jake: Well, she eats. She sleeps. She poops. So far, I'm not impressed.
      Berta: Give her a bad haircut, and she'd be you.
      Jake: Excuse me, but I paid nine bucks for this haircut!

    • Jake: The baby doesn't look anything like me. In fact, she doesn't look like my mom or my stepdad, either.
      Berta: Who does she look like?
      Jake: More like a girl version of my dad.
      Berta: I thought your dad was the girl version of your dad.
