Two and a Half Men Review: Mary Poppins and Sir Schmidt

at . Comments

Oh, my, this week’s episode of Two and a Half Men was full of carnal interludes, drugs and loyal subjects.

Walden and Zoey seemed to hit that dreaded spot in any relationship where everything suddenly becomes boring, but that all became water under the bridge after awhile... provided they visit many more zoos in the future.

The Two Men

I can understand Zoey’s reluctance in saying certain words. After all, she's British. Those Brits are so formal, looking for better words all the time, trying to replace vulgar ones with others such as frisky and randy. Seriously, Berta hit the proverbial  nail on the head by calling her "Mary Poppins."

She had a little bit of trust issues, but seeing as Walden and her child hit off, it's safe to say, those worries are long gone now. I do hope their relationship continues to grow stronger.

Indeed, we were treated to a little bit of character development from Zoey in "Duchess of Dull- In-Sack," as viewers were introduced to her ex- husband, who happens to be 177th in line for the throne and her daughter, Ava. The latter is really sweet, and she gave Walden his new name, “Sir Schmidt," Her ex, though? A complete douche bag.

This week was a little low on jokes, but Berta, Jake and Eldridge had the best lines of the night. From Jake suggesting that he and Eldridge could be ringers for each other... to finding Berta’s brownies... and Berta’s borderline racist jokes about Poland and shoes... I could not stop laughing. I'm happy to see other characters are getting more screen time, with Alan relegated a bit here, though still produce some chuckles.

All in all, a good episode. I look forward to the return of Judy Greer, while Aston Kutcher looks kind of young with that haircut. I also hope Jake and Eldridge find the real Zoey. Finally: best of luck to Zoey’s ex-husband - that succession line is really long.

Can someone tell me what kind of shades walden is wearing ?


Please oh please take this show off the air before it gets any worse (if even possible anymore)! Episode 22 went even lower than any episode before in the ninth season.


Yep the new show sucks,I watched half of the 9th season first episode and I'm more than disappointed. Bring back charlie damn it!! Now I'm left with re runs of what use to be the best show on tv, thanks mr lorre


In "The Duchess of Dull-In Sack" episode


who know what kinda sunglasses Walden is wearing???


Is that the "Charlie Sheen" who just commented- Please come back to the show- It is not the same without you- Can`t you make a deal with Chuck Lorre?- You were amazing in the show!!!!!!- We miss you terribly!!!!!
So happy you are doing great now!!!!


I know its ridiculous, but I am slightly offended by both the show and this reviewer's borderline racist remarks about English (not British, English) people. 1) I don't think I've heard anyone speak with an accent nearly as posh as Zoey's since she was on Peep Show! Her accent is her charm, but the majority don't speak like that. 2) Its sad that the writers have decided to go with the dead format of 'English people are uptight, bad in bed, and refuse to say anything vulgar'. Fuck that. 3) What the hell was going on with that horrible accent they made that poor little girl do?! What a cutie, if it wasn't for that Dick Van Dyke voice!!


yeah this show sucks ashtin is not funny at all he was much better in 70s show


people that are bitching about the show should stop watching it then. It has other things to do besides watching tv.


@ Baebara - Alcatraz on Monday at 9:00 pm is well worth watching and is 100%better than this idiocy. That's why there "seem" to be so many people watching who say the same thing as you (that there's nothing else on), so the writers "think" that the show is a success - NOT. So even the people who watch it, even though they don't like it, are adding to its numbers, but almost anything else is better.
