Episode Summary

Charlie finds himself in a relationship that is not based on sex.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • Charlie is going out with Mia, the balle dancer. She is the committed kind of person and wants charlie to take things slowly. Not having sex is just not Charlie's cup of tea, so their relationship runs into trouble.moreless

    First things first, Mia is damn hot man. No man can resist her, leave alone a person like Charlie, who is habituated to having sex with random starngers almost everyday. The comedy in the episode was god as usual. Berta was awesome with her one liners. I even found the two jokes by Jake too good. Don't know why Charlie didnt like it. I justcan't understand how Charlie manages to get one damn hot girl after another though we all know he is such an ass. In the end it was a complete reversal of roles for Charlie. I mean how can a man like him refuse to have sex with a girl like Mia. I just couldn't buy the ending.moreless
  • I was very pleased with the whole plot of the episode, more story than humour

    I was very pleased with the whole plot of the episode, more story than humour.

    I was happy with this episode. Finally, Charlie found a real commitment and it's great to see that he can do such a thing. Evelyn was the funniest tonight. Really, she calls him drunk or on pills when she could finally believe that he has a commitment.

    Even though their relationship started on the bad side, Charlie made it up while new character Kandi nearly does Alan outside.

    It wasn't that funny, in fact I no longer think that we'll get an episode that is as funny as a Season 1 or 2 episode. But yes, the storyline has definitely improved. I was quite pleased wth this episode. Good work...moreless

  • No Sex.

    Okay, I had to think for a minute....Mia wasn't a new girl, she's Jake's ballet teacher. I thought Charlie broke it off with her so that Jake won't get hurt? Guess he didn't........but he should have stuck to his plan of not hurting Jake, since he got a whole lotta of hurt this time........NO SEX!

    I loved the whole family in the kitchen scene when Charlie announced that he was in love, but they thought he was on a new drug.

    Overall, another great installment.moreless
  • Charlie in a sexless relationship.

    I didn't realize Charlie was still seeing the ballet teacher. You haven't seen her in weeks. Jake's bad jokes were so bad they were funny. You got to see another side of Alan, the clever side. I loved how everyone thought Charlie was drunk at the beginning. I love the maid.
