Episode Summary

Charlie finds out that Alan and Judith have begun to date again.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • lame

    Two and a Half Men almost always is a home run of comedy, a grand slam of laughs, a pennant of hilarity, if you will, but not tonight. The episode had very few good lines if any, and the viewer was instantly able to predict what the title would be if they did not know when it was said, but that does not mean it was funny necessarily, and in this case it wasn't.

    Anything with Judith in a big role is destined to be bad, but this was not entirely her fault. Two and a Half Men just phoned this one in.moreless
  • Surprise, surprise. A very hilarious week of Two and a half men

    Heh, another great episode from this series. I miss the old series, meaning Seasons 1, 2 and best of all: Season 3.

    The show started to dry up in laughter from the fourth season onwards.

    I liked this one, it had it's humor funny parts which got me cracking, which the new episodes do not give. Yes, perhaps it was too predictable, so? The storyline was funny... I accept any sort of comedy from this show because I feel that the next two seasons did not deliver enough homor. Judith and Alan begun to date again and did their usual: Get into the hot tub, into bed together, hide from Jake. It was great this time around.

    I liked the whole plot, and with Rose, Berta and Evelyn in the picture, along with Judith, those four characters in a single episode makes a greater episode. You wouldn't see all four appear on one episode, only rarely.

    They were all hilarious, as usual. To me, what makes a great episode is if you laugh till you cried or/and it tells a best storyline. Overall, yes, predictable. That did not effect this one to me. I loved it, Season 3 is certainly another great giving show like the first two were.moreless
  • The Judith episode....

    We all knew that this storyline was going to happen - Alan dating Judith.

    Of course, it was still funny, the usually plotline was there - Alan hiding the fact that he's dating from his son was there. I did enjoy that fact that Charlie had an intervention set up to stop this dating thing from going on. That was funny.

    The hot tub scene was way too predicatable also. It was too obvious that Alan was going to be pushed underwater. But after the second time, it just got old.

    We all knew that it was going to end in disaster and that Alan was going to leave the house naked. So even though it had it's hilarious parts, the storyline was too predictable.moreless
  • Predictable!

    Not really entertaining, and lacking something extra special......oh I know...comedy.

    I hate Judith, and I find it very very hard to believe that Alan was married to her in the first place. Although, he likes strong women who can command him, so it's plausible.

    Anyway, they want to keep it a secret from Jake that their seeing each other again, but we all know that they will not get back together (well maybe for the series finale) because if they do the show is dead.

    Overall, predictable episode.moreless
