Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • What's happening in here?

    This and 7x05 were one of the best episode of the season, this one being the best yet, and they're both with such low rating?

    There's something really wrong here. Anyway, this was the second, if not the best christmas episode of the series.

    Loved Carl Reiner in this episode, he delivered some great lines. The episode worked out well, with Charlie and Jake being the most funny.

    Everything was going so well until Chelsea showed up, but she didn't appear enough time to ruin this great episode.

    This was a great way to finish the year, now it's going to be hard to wait until January...moreless
  • The show is basically about two and one half men. A bachelor, and another father with a son or the "half of a man." The show is usually about relationships and "getting the girl." The tone is usually comedic and dramatic.moreless

    This is an interesting show that would appeal to anyone over the age of 14. Which is why it is rated for that age group. Yes I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under that age, but it is funny, for teens and adults. The episodes usually have a good story line and contain many funny moments, although some are raunchy. As stated in the summary, the show is mainly about relationships and some adult situations. If you understand those types of scenes, the show will be very funny to you, and for those who just cannot grasp what is going on, it may be even a little boring. Overall, it is a great show for the "older" and more mature audience.moreless
  • good episode

    its a christmas episode and Charlie teaches Jake how to cheat on his girl friend and the girl he gets is hot and then Alan trys to make a good christmas dinner and Charlie and Alan's mom brings some famous tv maker and it was funny when he creates a show about Charlie and Alan's life but he thinks they gay and then Jake's girlfriend comes back and he gets busted and he lose both girls and then some other things happen and who knows what else can happen lets find out in the next episode and will jake gets his girl friend backmoreless
  • Charlie is his old self as he gets Jake to cheat on his new girlfriend and in the end really screws up Christmas at the Harper home. Alan really does nothing to stop him like always and seems to be wallowing in his own situation as well.moreless

    C'mon, this is the perfect episode for all the people complaining about Charlies new lifestyle. This is the return to everything Charlie!

    While Jake's girlfriend from next door is away in Brentwood (which is just a few hours away in LA) he is scoping out the new talent on the beach behind Charlies house. Of course Charlie with his bad advice tells him while the girlfriends away Jake can play setting up the obvious ending that will occur.

    For all the people that complain that this show can't have episodes like the old ones here you go. This is the old Charlie at his best. He can't fool around so he gets Jake in trouble instead.

    Great cameo by the legendary Carl Reiner playing Marty Pepper an old TV producer which Carl of course is. Did anyone else notice the "Marty Pepper Production" logo at the end of the episode! Classic!!! Berta and Evelyn are their old selves and of course Chelsea shows up just in time to bust Charlie big time. It is really wonderful to see this group of actors really come together in a holiday episode.

    A wonderful hour of television with The Big Bang Theory that followed. Two classic comedies that are definitely the cream of the crop on television today and will be classics for years to come. It makes Monday evening at 9/8C the one time to be in front of the TV! Thanks for reading...moreless
  • My chestnuts are roasting by this open fire.

    Any time that you can get a comedy legend like Carl Reiner on your show it instantly validates the program and gives it added credibility. This episode sort of needed that with a very un-Two and a Half Men-esque storyline with Charlie helping Jake "cheat" on his girlfriend.

    The dinner/Christmas sequences were very well-done and felt like something out of Newhart, but the episode as a whole did have some charm and appeal, if for the very idea that it was a fish out of water sequence with Jake acting more like Charlie than his usual self.

    Is this an episode I'm going to be in a hurry to rewatch? Doubtful, but for the last episode of 2009 it was certainly enjoyable.moreless
