    The first new Two and a Half Men of 2011 and it is really just more of the same: a little bit of immature comedy thrown in with a few genuinely funny lines and some ridiculously over the top gags to close out the show. Alan getting skunked just is not what I expect from this show. Drake and Josh? Maybe, but not Two and a Half Men.

    I am usually a fan of these Alan-centric episodes, but this one was just not that great. Not bad, but nothing I'll watch again. And the scotchguard gimmick, I'd drop that, it wasn't funny any of the three times they said it.moreless

    A great episode of Two and a Half Men, and it's definitely constellation considering how unpredictable weak this season has been. 2 1/2 Men hasn't been producing good episodes as of late, and I think the premiere is the only thing that was actually great this season, but now we have this episode too.

    The interactions between Lindsay & Charlie were great. It was also entertaining seeing Alan flip out like that. A lot of one liners just worked, and the funniest scene from the episode was when Jake walked out with a fire extinguisher as a housewarming present for Lindsey. That was absolutely hysterical.

    We've got one of 2 1/2 Men's best recurring guest starts tonight: Ryan Stiles as Herb. He was hilarious here, and every time he's in an episode, he makes it twice as good. I could have done without the skunk skunking Alan twice, it got kind of annoying there, but regardless, the episode was still great. Congrats Two & A Half Men, you actually made me laugh tonight.moreless
