Wow. Two and a Half Men is really busting out the big guns to try and make up for the lack of Sheen. And by big guns, I am, of course, referring to Jenny McCarthy's breasts. Did she always have those things!?
Seriously, though, this episode was probably the strongest of the Kutcher-led series, mostly thanks to the guest starring beauties (McCarthy and Courtney Thorne-Smith). And not just Courtney's cell-phone raising qualities.
Thanks to the two ladies well-developed characters from multi-episode arcs, the show almost felt a little more like home. Especially for Alan, who's even back in his bedroom thanks to "Nine Magic Fingers" and looking out for his latest rich man.
Now, I'm far from saying this sitcom is the same or as good as seasons past, but for the first time this season, I was actually enjoying scenes and not being embarrassed for the cast and crew. Yes, Kutcher is still my least favorite part. But luckily this episode had its distractions.
Hopefully, there's enough guest stars and and past Two and a Half Men storylines we can explore to keep me interested. Heck, there's enough of Charlie's exes to last a lifetime and that's not even touching the Alan story lines.
Let's keep Lindsey around! Or bring on more Judith and Herb! Like Alan's bromance with Herb or his possibly daughter with Judith. As long as we leave his sister out. That could lead to a casting paradox and possible a rip in the space time continuum not even Doc Brown could fix.
Anyways, here's hoping for as much nostalgia as I can have with my remaining man and a half.
