Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • I liked this episode, I do miss the old humor, but the storylines have improved. Read the review for more details...

    I liked it heaps, but it is overated. I liked the fact that Charlie has taken the next step in his relationship with Mia, also the fact that Alan is now being a Charlie where he has sex with a nutty woman who wants to wants to do it all the time.

    The whole storyline of the episode was a great one! It was similar to the previous episode, but better and more interesting.

    One thing the show is lacking though is the old homor that it used to bring. One or two words then the audience would crack up laughing. But yes, the storylines are better than they used to be. A combination of that and homor would make a perfect Two and a half men episode. My favorite scenes were Alan and Kandi for sure. The show has gotten better with the storylines but as this happened, the homor slipped away. I'm not saying anything too harsh, but if they could maybe perhaps bring in both, amazing. It was a very good episode though...moreless
  • Pretty funny episode. Two surprises in this episode.

    At the beginning of this episode, an improbably Charlie Sheen dating disaster arises.

    He (Charlie Harper) comes off as somewhat "romantically non-transparent" which blows the deal for him, and we are not talking a financial deal.

    Meanwhile, Alan proves what a great communicator he is. It is a useful skill, up to a point.

    There is a new character in this episode, named "Kandi". Kandi seems very sweet but not very bright. She is sweet, insightful (up to a point), and convivial. She is in quite a few scenes in this particular episode. That is really not a bad thing at all.moreless
  • The best part was Alan and Kandi

    Mia is very annoying and I can't wait to see her go. Alan dating Kandi was great. I loved when Alan told off hid ex-wife and let her know he knew who she was sleeping with. Bertha was funny as always. I would love to see someone else come on the show that has a personal connection to the two stars like when Martin Sheen came on.
