Episode Summary

Alan lets Chelsea fix him up on a blind date with one of her friends—Rose.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Almost perfect episode

    This episode was almost perfect. The story was brilliant and it was nice to see Rose having a role again. The show has been going on for a while now and it's nice to see they can still surprise you with new and unexpected stories. The twist at the end with Rose's stalking was a great touch and everything seems to be falling in place nicely for a great few episodes yet to come. The only thing missing from this episode that means that it doesn't get 10/10 was that there was no Evelyn. Other than that the episode was fantastic. Chelsea seems to be a character that the show can accommodate well and fits in fine with the concept of the show.moreless
  • Alan dates Rose

    Chelsea fixes Alan on a blind date with one of her friends: Rose. He and Charlie try to play along with the date and then move away, but Alan starts liking Rose and they start dating seriously.

    Two and a Half Men Season 6 Episode 21 "Above Exalted Cyclops" is a very good episode, it is great. Its one of the best episodes of the season. The whole Alan dating Rose deal was brilliant! So cool! Who came up with that idea? Is an awesome episode! Its really really funny! You've just gotta love this episode! You just gotta! Is an awesome episode, plot wise and comedy wise.moreless
  • Bringing back the old Two and a Half Men.

    After more than one mediocre episode during the season, "Above Exalted Cyclos" was a refreshing change. The highlight: Rose. Melanie Lynskey has been missed, and the return of everyone´s favourite stalker was filled with that same "oh my god, how do I get out of this without my testicles superglued to my butt?" akwardness of the earlier seasons.

    "Hello, I´m Alan Cousteau" was a drastic improvement from previous episodes on this season, and I think it´s safe to say that this episode definitely raised the bar. Charlie´s panic was hilarious, and the whole double date scene was one of the best ones we´ve seen in a while. Berta´s and Jake´s small but colorful contributions added to the mix, but, at the end of the day, it was all about Rose.

    We have missed you, monkey woman.moreless
  • Another great episode.

    An episode revolving around Alan, Jake in a very, very limited role, the potty humor kept to a minimum and the return of Rose; this episode had all the ingredients for a great half hour of comedy, and it delivered.

    I still think Two and a Half Men is missing out on a lot of opportunities by having Charlie in this relationship with Chelsea, but I can understand why after 6 years they don't want him as a bachelor anymore. But shows like Californication and Curb Your Enthusiasm show that having a lead that is single can lead to some great comedy.

    I hope Rose returns on a permanent or at the very least recurring basis as she always brings out the best in the cast.moreless
  • A perfect 10 for 21 minutes of unstoppable laughs

    Well, easily this has been the best episode of the season. I am not sure how much the actors are responsible for putting up such an act, but definitely the writing has been a work of a genius.

    Rose is back in town, and now she is back to haunt Alan. Jon Cryer was nothing less than amazing this episode. Charlie though on a comparative basis had a less important role, we nevertheless get to see a handful of his magical one-liners. Jake and Berta for the little time they were on, provided some unstoppable laughs. The best one-liner of the episode would probably go to Jake - "this movie is an insult to my intelligence".

    Amazing. Seriously Amazing. No wonder CBS would kill to extend this show.moreless
