We get it. Chelsea has huge boobs. But, really, Charlie, it's time to get over her or Two and a Half Men will have painfully jumped the shark.
This show normally does season finales like no other sitcom on television. Take last season when we had Charlie stuck with Judith delivering a baby. It brought out the entire cast and stuck them in a ridiculous situation.
This time around? No Berta, no Evelyn, no Judith, no Herb, and certainly no Rose. The last one being especially depressing after she made a re-appearance during last week's far superior "Gumby with a Pokey."
This week had plenty of laughs thanks to Jake really stepping it up as a cast member, proving why he deserves to be the highest paid child actor and, of course, Alan is annoyingly entertaining as ever.
But Charlie. Charlie is a whiny, sobbing loser still. If I wasn't reviewing this show, I might give up after this season. The show really needs to get back to what makes it funny. And that's less Chelsea, and more funny Charlie.
Again, the episode had laughs. But this was no season finale. Our favorite Two and a Half Men quotes from the disappointing half hour after the jump.
Jake: I like German cars.
Charlie: Well if keep your nose clean and work hard, you may be able to park them for a living. | permalink
Alan: I did buy her a nice scarf.
Charlie: Will it support your weight from a shower rod? | permalink
Jake: What's that?
Charlie: A birthday present for Chelsea.
Jake: But I thought you guys broke up.
Charlie: Yeah well I bought it a couple months ago.
Charlie: Because I thought that's when her birthday was. Turns out I confused it with St. Patrick's Day. | permalink
Alan: ...and maybe Saturday, a date.
Charlie: You're calling those magazines dates now? | permalink
