I said that Herb was only good in small doses yet now I long for a scene with him and Charlie on a weekly basis. The two of them play off each other so well and it's interesting to see a dynamic where Charlie is the straight man.
The episode was made when Herb was at the door and Charlie and Alan were bickering using titles of imaginary books as insults. Just some great back and forth, something this show excels at.
I liked Charlie was ordering Jake around in an attempt to get him to behave because he thought he might be going to military school. Alan's nervousness around Judith was also entertaining for the second straight week.
This is not the same kind of Two and a Half Men we saw in Season 1 but they still know how to dish out a very funny half hour.
