    First to say: Awesome episode.

    So after Jake & Berta scam drunken Charlie, she tells her that she is not gonna be here tomorrow and she'll bring a replacement. The next day, Charlie meets Esmeralda, Berta's latina friend. Turns out she is an awesome housekeeper, she even cleaned the grill we never knew he had.

    Charlie is delighted by her, but the next day, Berta returns. So Charlie decides to hire Esmeralda as his night housekeeper, but Berta catches him. He then decides to keep Berta, but changes his mindf shortly after.

    Meanwhile Alan is creeped out because Chris murdered him with a finger gun. This leads to a very funny scene wtih Alan freaking uot in the coffee shop. The epside ends with CHarlie goign for Esmerlada, meeting Chris on the door and telling him "Alan's in his room & there's a pillow on the couch".

    Title RefrerencE: Charlie, after saying he knows how to say I love you in tons of languages, tells Alan that they'll help him have a good time in central Africa.

    Overall: Hilariosu episode. Both plots worked, and have great jokes. Also, as I speack spanish, I loved hearing everyone speak spanish (& in Charlie's case, french). 10/10.moreless
  • a good time in central africa

    Okay, so they are really letting Charlie Sheen get away with too much here. Was the opening scene in this episode really even scripted or was that just Charlie Sheen being himself?

    After that, the episode was kind of funny though, that I have to admit. The interactions with the housekeeper were amusing, Charlie running to save her with the barber's towel still around his neck, this was just some good quality comedy. This show has been getting better lately, but I still feel that it would be best if it ended this year, or next year. There just are not enough stories to tell with these characters anymore.moreless
