Two and a Half Men Review: "Tinkle Like a Princess"

by at . Comments

She's gone!  She's really gone!  After spending an entire season whining that we couldn't wait for Two and a Half Men to get rid of Chelsea, she finally packed her things and left last night.

Chelsea Leaves

While we have nothing against Jennifer Bini Taylor, her character simply made Men less funny than it was in previous seasons.  Now if Sheen can get out of rehab and stay out of their long enough, we're excited to see one of our favorite sitcoms return to its former glory.

As for last night's episode, "Tinkle Like a Princess," it certainly had its funny moments.  Our favorite scene was probably Alan and Berta arguing over who should rescue a drowning Charlie.

Unfortunately, the biggest problem was most of the humor came from the surround cast, while Charlie played an uncharacteristic douche.  While with Chelsea, Charlie never seem that infatuated (except for maybe her breasts), but now that she's gone, he's acting like more of a cry baby (hey, Jake's words, not ours) than any man should, let alone Charlie Harper. 

We're hopign there's no more scenes of Charlie attempting to win back Chelsea and we can go back to funny Harper family antics.  We'll leave you with some funny Two and a Half Men quotes from this mediocre episode after the jump.

Berta: Damnit Charlie, get out of that water!
Alan: We need to go after him.
Berta: Don't look at me! I just ate, I gotta wait a half an hour.
Alan: Well I just took a shower and washed my hair, this is leave in conditioner.
Berta: What about Jake?
Alan: Jake's at this mother's.
Berta: Maybe we should give him a call.
Alan: There's no time!
Charlie [comes back soaking]: Water's really cold.
Alan: Just so you know we were about to come get you. | permalink
Charlie: I can't go in there, it reminds me too much of Chelsea.
Alan: The bathroom?
Charlie: It's where she used to brush her hair, floos her, and tinkle like a princess.
Alan: Okay, where have you been tinkling?
Charlie: I need a new ficus. | permalink
Charlie: If I can't haive chelsea, I don't want to live.
Alan: Where are you going?
Charlie: Strip club.
Alan: Ah yes, death by lap dance. | permalink

Don't forget Rose, Herb, and Melissa. And what happens with meredith, Herb and Judith's baby.Okay, a couple more seasons of CHarlie's nonsense, I love Charlie---but I want to see him married off too. Its sad Chelsea is gone but Charlie can find a another Chelsea and live happily every after. Or bring in a wife for Charlie. Chelsea was a good character on the show but she's gone. Charlie deserves better then Chelsea-----she kind of cheated on him, Brad, shmad!!! I can't get enough of this show!!!!I need to get a life. Yikes

No one seems to bring up the fact that Two and a Half Men had its largest ratings, viewers and audiences when Chelsea was Charlie's fiancee. Charlie needs Chelsea... So does the show. Those few people who want Charlie to be an old stale fart pervert, must be kind of sick...

It's the surrounding cast and writing that make the show funny and watchable: Jake, Berta, Allan, and all the other characters. Also, it doesn't hurt to have some good looking women, occasionally. Yes, Chelsea was great to look at, but she made it just another "husband told what to do by a smarter wife" half-hour.

why does everyone want chelsea gone,in the 7 years of the show this is the first woman charlie has really loved and one that has loved charlie.it get a little tiring to see a 40some year old hope from one bimbo to another in years past, let him settle down, THE SHOW CAN SURVIVE WITH A WIFE INCLUDED.think about it do you really want to see another hundred bimbos in bed with charlie that make him look like one too.it would not hurt to see a mature charlie once and ahile.he still can be funny.
