Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Sex, Sex, and more Sex!!!

    This episode was terrific. I mean I seriously do not remember laughing this much while watching two and a half men. Basically Alan is missing Kandy (who is now living with Judith because she had a fight with Alan) and decides to get her back. When he gets a chance to talk to her he realizes that she is basically Judith’s puppet. So now he must find another way to get to her. At home he learns that Charlie is busy with Kandy’s mom, and decides to use her to get to Kandy. Seriously do watch this episode it has way too many twists that are sure to make anyone laugh.moreless
  • Two and a Half Men episode: amazing!

    Kandi starts living with Judith, making Alan go crazy. Then, Charlie reveals he is sleeping with Kandi's mom, Mandy, and Alan wants her to talk to some sense into Kandi. What makes things worse, is that Kandi sets up a blind date with her father, Andy...

    Two and a Half Men Season 3 episode Always a bridesmaid, never a burro, is so funny and amazing. This episode has great comedy and plot line that makes this show even better. Kandi living with Judith, Charlie sleeping with Kandi's mom, Judith possibly going out with Kandi's dad: is all a blast of comedy! Great ep!moreless
  • Warning spoilers

    This episode features both parents of Kandi who was/is dating Alan but used to date Charlie. The very hot Gail O'Grady plays Mandi, her mother, and the hunky Kevin Sorbo plays Andy, her father. According to Mandi, Kandi takes her looks from her mother and her brains from her father. When Berta is introduced to Mandi and realises her relationship to Kandi, her outburst of "Sweet whistling Geronimo, you people are like a box of hamsters, crawling all over each other" is fantastically timed.

    The actual scenario With Alan banging Kandi, Charlie banging her mother and Alan's ex-wife banging her father and all taking place at Judith's house is equivalent to one of the best episodes of Frasier.moreless
  • Lol, this was a great one

    Okay, a little more of the comedy in this one. Kandi with Alan again, Charlie and Mandy together?!, Judith with Kandi's dad! Holy crap...

    Great storylines from the writers this time because of the sex, families together and yeah, basically the good laughs never ended. I was very impressed!

    This is the first episode out the ones I've seen from Season 3 that has told me the big laughs haven't gone! Yeah, this season has shared some better storylines but it really comes down to comedy.

    I love Kandi, she is a great actress and I hope she continues to appear on Two and a half men down the line. But Judith was hot! She was sexually adventurous and that kind of turned me on.

    Really based on what I saw, this one had quite a bit of comedy and a great story, so I award it with a score of 8.3/10 Great.

    The best part was and will always be Alan and Kandi.. For sure.moreless
  • More twists than a barrel of saltwater taffey!

    At the beginninsg of this episode, Alan is depressed because Kandi is living with Judith, his ex-wife. But Charlie tells him that he can help Alan with his problem. When Alan asks how, Charlie tells him that he is banging Kandi's mother, Mandy. Alan goes up to talk to her and finds the situation ackward because Mandy and Charlie are lying in bed together. Mandy is sympathetic, telling Charlie than Alan is "cute." But she can't help Alan at the moment, because she and Charlie are still in the midst of sex. Later, Alan goes over to Judith's house twice to talk to Kandi. The first time Kandi tends to parrot Judith's words, telling Alan "We are at an implants in our relationship" (ha-ha!) meaning impasse. The next time Alan goes over to Judith's house, Charlie answers the door. Charlie asks him what his intentions are toward Kandi. Alan tells him he is going to kill him. Later, Mandy tells Charlie "You're right. Alan is easy to screw around with". Also Andy, Mandy's ex, comes to Judith's house to see Kandi, who sets him up with Judith. A lot of hilarity ensues with Charlie getting banged up by swinging doors, and various people hiding in Judith's jacussi. April Bowlby is a fantastic comic actress, I hope we can see her again sometime.moreless
