This week may not have featured Jake or any special guest stars (like last week's Jenny McCarthy), but there was still plenty of love for old Two and a Half Men fans.
For starters, we finally got to see Lyndsey's much talked about soft core porn, Cinnamon's Buns, and its partially simulated sex, in a nice throwback to last season. Plus, a Melrose Place joke?!? You know they've been saving that cute line.
Then, we got plenty of fun references to Alan's past that previously seemed forgotten. It's good to know the writers remember Alan's possible daughter and generally shadiness. Let's just see it come back as a plot point next.
As far as Charlie's replacement? Ashton Kutcher was much more in his That 70's Show element as a stoned Walden. But, as the wise Homer Simpsons once said, reefer and drunk are two very different elements. Stoner comedy definitely felt a little out of place on Men.
Sure, being high finally excused Walden's out-of-place idiocy, and I'll give them the "Giant Cat Holding Churro," but could a batch of pot brownies really result in a room full Malibu College volley players? If so, I to need try Berta's recipe some time.
Your thoughts on the episode? Ashton growing you yet?
