  • I honestly don't see why everyone's scores are so low just because Alan (Jon Cryer) has a huge role in this episode.... there's nothing wrong with an Alan episode and I really enjoyed this episodemoreless

    I have seen almost every episode of this show but I just don't review them. I have nothing else better to review at the moment so I'm just gonna review this episode for the heck of it. First of all, I don't see why everyone has to give this episode a low score because Alan (Jon Cryer) had a big role in this episode. Even though Charlie didn't do anything in this episode, it was still very funny and his supporting role in this episode did make me laugh hard. It was hilarious when Jake said that he wants to go to college so he can get drunk with a bunch of smokin' hot girls was very funny. It was hilarious when Charlie didn't let Jake use his car and then Courtney goes with Jake to buy some stuff leaving Jake with Charlie's car and outsmarting Charlie. Jake's part in this episode definitely made me LOL. The other hilarious part in this episode was when Alan goes to the mall and raises money by giving customers neck and back messages. I also had to LOL with Alan giving that man (who was also giving neck and back massages from across Alan) a message. Alan's line "Can you believe I married that b**ch?" also was funny. Alan giving Lindsey the birthday present towards the end of the episode was funny. This episode was hilarious for the most part. My score is a little low because I thought Alan was getting a little irritating. Overall, this was a superb episode of "Two and a Half Men". 9/10moreless

    Okay, Charlie did nothing in this episode, outside of buying Courtnet more stuff, and waving hello to Alan in the mall. Also being there when Alan returend from ---------.



    So Lyndsey's bday is coming and Alan is depressed that he won't be able to buy Lyndsey a gift like Charlie always does with COurtney. So, he puts a portable massage kit on the mall. But things get awry when some hcinese dude competes with him. After that, Alan manages to get the money, buy gets scammed and buys a mint collar. Thinking they were pearls.



    So, while leaving Jake, he takes Judith's earrings. The ones he gave them and she never wore. On a bar, they bump into Judth and Herb, so to prevent Judth from seeing the earrings, he yells at her about Jakes clothes, making them leave. The episode ends with Alan stealing a collar from Judth.



    Title REference: Alan, after working all day, telling Lyndsey why he cna't have sex.



    Overall: This was an average episode. Mostly becuase Charlie & Jake didn't do anything. But the Eye of the Tiger montage was cool. 8/10.moreless

    This episode didn't start out very well with the dreadful massage chairs scene that honestly didn't feel at all funny in any sense. Yet Ryan Stiles was in this episode, so he sort of salvaged the episode with his few lines as Judith's current husband. Allan stealing her earrings were great and his speech at the bar was very entertaining. The thing they did do right in this episode was definitely Jake outsmarting Charlie, that's always fun to watch.



    So yes, this episode did have it's minor flaws, but it was for the most part good, and it was definitely better than what we've been getting as of late.moreless

    Two and a Half Men continues to rely a bit too much on Alan Harper, but you know what, Jon Cryer does a good job in the role and here he gave another solid performance. While this episode certainly brought nothing new to the table, and instead brought much irritation on my part, there were a few solid laughs here and that is really what you can expect out of Two and a Half Men. A solid episode here, highlighted by a few noteworthy lines, but easy to see why the show's viewership continues to decline at a very rapid pace.moreless

    in this episode it contuines with Alan and Lyndsey, and charlie and coutney. Them Alan feels bad that he can't buy a special birthday gift for Lyndsey and Alan tries raising money by offering massages at the mall and Charlie says "Cue the theme from Rocky" that could of been the Title qoute and it was kind of funny playing the Rocky theme they could of used Eye of the tiger if Alan tried again and once Alan does a cool thing he steals Judith's old ear rings and them her old necklance it was funny and what if Judith finds outmoreless
