Episode Summary

After a birthday party she throws for Alan is met with indifference by his family, Melissa feels he's underappreciated and offers him the chance to live with her and her mother.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • It's Alan's birthday.

    The endings with Alan in his underwear, chained to the bed or in some otherwise bizarre predicament are really getting old. I mean, I guess this is a big part of the show but there were a bunch of avenues to go without having Alan sleep with Shelly. Otherwise this was yet another enjoyable installment of Two and a Half Men. I found myself laughing at a lot of Berta's lines which almost never happens. Charlie Sheen did not look like he put much effort into this taping, but he still had some funny remarks as well. Two and a Half Men is just one of the few consistently great shows on television. Not much else can be said.moreless

    It's Allan's birthday and I must say this has to be one of the best episodes of this show. Everyone was hilarious, and Jake not caring about Allan was just good TV, we got a lot of funny one liners from Jake and it was just absolutely hilarious. To see how dysfunctional Allan & Charlie's family is just hilarious. Shoving them in to one room is comedic genius. However Allan hooking up with Melissa's mother was just way too ridiculous for my liking. This show, I have realized, never has real development. This show takes one steps forward and then two steps back, and were right back from where we started.

    This show needs development, but it never fails to be funny, and it was just hysterical here.moreless
  • Good 20 minutes!

    This was an episode made by a solid storyline, good acting and pretty decent humour. It wasnt the funniest but wasnt a bad effort. It delivered the laughs and pity that we give to these beloved characters are a weekly basis. Unless you hate Alan, it is impossible not to feel sorry for him. Funnily enough though it is also impossible not to laugh out loud at those who give him crap. I did feel as if they went a bit too far though...

    Even with a script that didnt deliver the biggest laughs, the acting enables it to seem even funnier!

    Are they repetitive on this show? Yeah i guess so.

    But do the continue making us laugh? FOR SURE!moreless
