  • Candy is back!

    7.5
    Finally, Alan's smokin hot eye Candy returns. And in gratuitous fashion.



    She kept me watching the show last year, and so far this year, I'm getting tired of watching Berta. She doesn't look so good in High Definition!



    My friends like her but I can't stand her. I wish Rose was in it more. She's attractive and funny. But Charlie's girl, the mother clone, is annoying again. She\'s more annoying than Alan\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s ex wife Judith. I like Jake, and he had only one or two lines. This show needs a plot shake up, because it's getting stagnant, sad to say. I like this show. It was my favorite until 30 Rock came on. Now that is the first show I go to on my TiVo. My advice would be to bring back Candy!moreless
  • Horrible episode

    1.9
    I thought Charlie dumped the mother clone. Berta is great and she better not be leaving the show. I hated this episode so much I pretty much fast forwarded thru most of it. Kandi used to be funny in a dumb blond way but now she is just a money hungry witch.
  • Funny, funny episode...

    9.4
    This episode had me laughing for mostly the entire thing. Alan is trying to sell the condo that he bought Kandi but Kandi doesn't want it sold because she likes to stare at the boats. So, to get Alan's mind away from selling the condo, Kandi actually does something smart and seduces Alan into forgetting about trying to sell the condo. This was pretty funny but it really didn't need to last for more than 3 scenes.



    Charlie is also having problems with sex and with trying to keep both Berta and Lydia happy. Lydia as it turns out thinks that Berta is some kind of maid who not only cleans, but cooks as well. This launches into a little war between Charlie, Berta, and Lydia where Charlie want's both of them to stay but neither will stay while they continue to reside within the same house. Berta was as funny as usual, especially the part where she is "telling" Charlie that she is the alpha dog and this leads to some very funny moments. In the end, Berta and Lydia leave and the only way that Charlie can get Berta back is by going to a sex class where he reveals that he is addicted to sex which is really no surprise. But, he does end up dragging Alan along with him.



    So, in the end, I loved this story and the funny parts that happened. There were plenty of crude jokes to be found in Charlie and Alan's little side conversations. I can only hope that Lydia is gone for good because even though she was a funny character, she is to much like Charlie and Alan's mom.

      Alan: Yeah! I hear scientists are working on a machine that can cook two pieces of bread at the same time.

      Alan: So what's the problem?

      Berta: You wanna borrow me? What am I, a carpet steamer?
      Lydia: I'm not saying I won't pay you, plus you can take home all the leftovers.
      Berta: Oh, gee, why don't you just toss 'em all in a big bowl and I'll eat 'em out in the yard.
      Lydia: Well, that's just a little uncalled for. I thought I was doing you a favor.
      Berta: You wanna do me a favor? You take the money that you were gonna pay me, convert it into rolls of nickels, then bend over...

    • Charlie: You know what? I don't need either one of ya! I can do my own laundry, and I've got my own finger!

    • Berta: I don't mind your girlfriends throwing the occasional thong or panties into the hamper. I just fold them and sell them at the swap meet, but this broad is taking advantage of my easygoing nature.
      Charlie: Now to be fair, Lydia does have her positive attributes.
      Berta: Yeah, well, I ain't hitting any of them attributes, so I don't give a rat's ass.
