  • Chelsea must go to her ex-mother-in-laws funeral in Santa Barbara. This opens up another opportunity for Charlie to make a monumental mistake. Alan and Jake are along for the ride on this one. Classic Two and a half with Jake really becoming involved.

    Even when Charlie is trying to be good he has trouble. While his current relationship is away another friend from the past who is happy with their relationship as it is drops in just for some fun. Charlie drops his brother and nephew like a hot potato and proceeds to try to do what Charlie does best. Unfortunately for Charlie he is developing a conscious and decides to let the girl sleep it off when his girlfriend lets him know she is returning soon.

    At this point all the real frivolity begins and Alan and Jake are coerced and prodded to help Charlie solve the dilemma he has got himself in. Lots of great and juvenile one liners ensue and they almost pull it off except for the short tag on the end when he finally gets busted.

    This episode reminds me of the good relationship between the two and a half men that has been missing in a lot of the recent episodes. Especially between Jake and his father and Jake and his Uncle. I hope we see more of these funny and entertaining episodes as we investigate Charlies new relationship going forward.

    In general a pretty simple episode and plot with just the use of the main characters, Charlies new girl, and one of his old playmates. Pretty well written and enjoyable to watch.

    Thanks for reading...
  • Charlie experiences a moral epiphany when he tries to cheat on Chelsea

    As always, two and a half men never continues to disappoint us. Cashing in on a great start with some unbelievable one liners from Charlie, this installment made good use of Alan's sarcastic dialogues, and Jake's age-inappropriate behavior.

    There were a couple of scenes where I laughed till my gut popped out. Alan's use of fancy words to describe seemingly simple actions like screwing up, just to confuse Jake was hilarious. The trash analogy was simply one crazy screenplay. Though this episode made use of minimal number of characters, as we don't see Judith, Herb, or Evelyn, it never produced even a single dull moment. This only goes on to prove that 2 1/2 is one time tested comedy.
  • Charlie must get a half-naked girl out of his house before his girlfriend gets back.

    I liked this episode for its simplicity. There was one central storyline with all three main characters contributing to its advancement. There was no side-plots to kill time, and no incredibly awkward moments (I could have done without the fart jokes, but that is not going to happen on this show).

    This felt very much like a Season 1 episode when the show was in its prime and hitting its stride. The majority of the jokes were funny and the scenes had you begging for more. The 20 minute run-time seemed to fly by this week.

    A surprisingly good night of CBS comedies altogether.
