Two and a Half Men Review: "Three Hookers and a Philly Cheesesteak"

at . Comments

Considering Charlie Sheen's hospitalization and near trip to rehab, it was a little tough to forget the actor's disastrous personal life when watching an installment titled, "Three Hookers and a Philly Cheesesteak."

Normally I defend the guy, claiming we can't judge someone for living a crazy life when we tune in to watch a characterization of each week.  Unfortunately, it's getting tougher and tougher to get images like Sheen's mouth feel of crack teeth out of my head while watching now. And that's a real shame because this episode had potential.

It's no secret I'm a big fan of Rose, and Charlie had a great episode lined up with her as they continued their affair.  Heck, throw Gordon, Charlie's pizza guy and Rose's ex into the mix and you have the recipe for hilarity.  Sadly, I was too busy thinking of Sheen's many adventures with porn stars.

Luckily, Jon Cryer once again proved why he earned that Emmy, stealing the show as the Ponzi-scheming Alan.  Watching Alan's transformation into evil Alan was priceless.

I hope Sheen can get his personal life back down to the level of his character and not take down his show in the process.  Before this becomes any more of a gossip rant, we'll leave you with our favorite Two and a Half Men jokes and quotes:

Berta: Do you have the Kardashian sisters under the table?
Charlie: No.
Berta: Then you're not dreaming. | permalink
Alan: How's the pediatrician game?
Herb: Like taking money from babies. | permalink

@jean schoenmehl: By all means, keep watching and enjoying the show, that's totally up to you. But I can't help but point out:
No celebrity is in the same stratosphere as Sheen. During this last incident, someone brought over a suitcase full of cocaine at 2am, and he made an effort to rent out the home down the street in order to stock it full of adult film actresses because he said he wanted to create a "porn family."


come on give the guy a break, im sure we all have things were ashamed of some of us more than others. He is so good on 2 and a half men so stop talking crap about him. their r a lot of drug addicts and alcholics in the world not only him. give the guy a break.
