Two and a Half Men Review: "Gumby with a Pokey"
First off, we want to begin this Two and a Half Men review by first congratulating Charlie Sheen for becoming one of the most over-paid actors with his soon-to-be-announced contract renewal.
If it's anywhere close to the rumored 1.3 million per episode, he'll be putting the cast of Friends to shame. Don't get us wrong, he's hilarious in the show and the sitcom is the highest-rated on television, but wow that's a lot of money for a single cast member.
Now we just wish him luck in his request to allow smoking in jail while he serves out his plea bargain sentence. Okay, Charlie Sheen ranting slash ramblings over.
The general trend this season seems to be splitting up the two leading men, Alan and Charlie on their own separate adventures. This week, Charlie teamed up with the always hilarious Berta when he scored some medicinal marijuana.
Thank goodness for the ridiculous state of California and its ability to provide us with pot plot lines on all our favorite shows. Charlie being stoned served as an excuse to gather up all of his exes in one house for a very entertaining and fun throwback sequence.
Long time fans of the show were also heavily rewarded at the end when Rose showed up at Charlie's place and turned out not to be a hallucination! As I'm sure any fan will agree, Rose is end game for Charlie. None of this Chelsea crap.
Meanwhile, Alan was given a silly road trip plot line with Jake. Now that Jake is out of those awkward years where he just wasn't funny, the two of these actors actually kept us pretty entertained for a plot where nothing happened.
Overall, it was a pretty decent episode and set us up for a season finale full of the always crazy and entertaining Rose. Our favorite Two and a Half Men quotes after the jump.
Alan: You might want to eat something so when you throw up later, it won't just be alcohol and stomach juice.
Charlie: Way ahead of you. (holds up drink) I call it an Egg McBorboun. | permalink
Alan: My life isn't over you know.
Alan: What doesn't kill us, makes us stronger.
Jake: Then you must be like the hulk. | permalink
Alan: Let me tell you something young man, chapter two of your father's story hasn't been written.
Jake: Is chapter one, "I crapped my pants?" | permalink
Berta: Man, If I'd known you liked the whacky weed, I wouldn't have spent the last eight years getting baked under the deck. You know, when I was on break. | permalink
