(S07E15) Remember how Charlie and Chelsea's relationship was drifting into the danger zone last week? You know that 'to be continued' we were left with... well, we picked up with the story as Charlie and Alan had cleaned up at home after their sojourn in the woods -- Jake, too -- only to find that Chelsea was pulling a 'Charlie.' That's right, she was coming home in the wee small hours of the morning and hadn't bothered to call. More on that and Alan's topiary below the belt after the jump.

Review: Two and a Half Men - Yay, No Polyps

There was a strange break in this episode of Two and a Half Men, like it might have been written by a couple of people who weren't communicating with each other at the time. For the most part, one half of it was very funny. For the other part, however, the jokes were lame and the situation strained. It all added up to an odd night, which is probably kind of how Charlie felt when he got himself cornered into a tricky situation. More after the jump.

How great is it that Jake Harper has turned into a rotten teenager? No more the butt of the joke (okay, he still is on many occasions), now at least he's dishing it out as well as getting it. This was one of the better shows of the season and I think it's because they shipped Chelsea out early on. Can she stay away permanently? More on that and the mice at play after the jump.

The holidays are a time for family and reflection and cheer. Unless you're the Harper family and gathering in Malibu becomes a test to see who can screw up each others' life more. This was an interesting Christmas get together, especially with the guest visit from Marty Pepper, sitcom king. Was it the ultimate inside joke that everything passing before Marty's eyes was fodder for a TV show? Yes, I think so. At the end of the show, the final credit was "A Marty Pepper Production."

Review: Two and a Half Men - That's Why They Call It Ball Room

(S07E10) There's something to be said about a good situation setting up a situation comedy. It didn't take much to get Charlie off and running on this episode, and after a bit of yelling and a "drop dead," we were off to the races. How it spiraled from one thing to the other is one of the best things about Two and a Half Men. That and the ever-present kick in the pants that Alan endures time and time again, even when he doesn't deserve it.

Oh, and the flashbacks were worth every commercial break. "I Had the Time of My Life" indeed. More after the jump.

Review: Two and a Half Men - Captain Terry's Spray-On Hair

How far are the writers going to take the Charlie and Chelsea relationship? Do you think they're actually going to get married? I ask because tonight's show was a glimpse of what married Charlie might be like. Funny, yes, but is a domesticated Charlie really what I want to watch? Gin rummy and snoring? Charlie being sensitive and in touch with a woman's feelings? Where has my Charlie gone?

Alan, fortunately, is in exactly the same spot where he's always been. The crapper. Remember that Emmy that Jon Cryer won for Two and a Half Men in September? He may have earned a bookend with this season's work. More on his hair care products and dating services after the jump.

Review: Two and a Half Men - Untainted by Filth

(S07E07) Charlie Harper engaged has been a pretty big pill to swallow, but the way Two and a Half Men has handled it up to now is to make the engagement open-ended. Like a TV series with no end date. Charlie has adjusted to life as a man with a "ball and chain" as Alan put it. He's been quite good ... for Charlie.

But when the screws are put to our man Charlie, when the future gets a date, well, that's just a bit too much reality for a wild thing like him to handle. That's the set up. For what happened, keep reading after the jump.

It's somewhat refreshing to know that Charlie Harper is not the soulless heathen I thought he was. It turns out that Charlie does have a very spiritual side, that he's aware of the good fortune that's been bestowed on him, and he's in touch with his emotions to the point that he can cry.

So what could make Charlie Harper cry? Find out after the jump.

Two and a Half Men: Laxative Tester, Horse Inseminator

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 13th 2009 1:34AM
Charlie_Two_and_A_Half_Men(S07E04) If you didn't know it before, Alan Harper is an idiot. Tonight's episode epitomized just how far Alan will go to get some action and how clueless he is when it comes to the consequences of those actions. Of course, that's the joke. He's a schleimel and prone to falling on his ass and breaking his nose, metaphorically.

So while Alan was looking for somewhere to have hot, erectile-medication induced sex with Melissa because she won't go back to the beach house -- not since Chelsea and her had it out -- Charlie was playing referee to Chelsea and Jake. Alan tried sex with the tiny blonde in the car, noting that, "You were sort of built for it." She walked out on Alan, right out of the car.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: A Very Sunny ChristmasHere's something I never saw coming: a straight to DVD release of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's very own Christmas special. Frankly, I can't think of anything more inappropriate. I love it.

So what's it all about? Read on for the description from the official press release ...

Is the ABC House giving us a hint about the new season of Lost?

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 5th 2009 11:37AM
Dominic MonaghanI know I just wrote about the awesome "ABC House" series of ads that have begun running, but the latest one may just be dropping a pretty serious hint about the future of Lost. In it, Dominic Monaghan (Charlie) is playing foosball and in response to the question "Aren't you dead?" he replies, "I was." (UPDATE: Okay, finally saw this and multiple reports have it wrong. He's told in reference to the game "You are so dead," and responds "Actually, I was.") Now this could just be a fun little gag they're playing, but it could just as easily be a clue as to what's forthcoming in the final season of Lost.

At the end of this past season, Juliet may or may not have rewritten history by detonating that bomb; if she truly detonated it. See there's so many questions as to what happened. It was almost a Sopranos exit. But if she did change history, then it's very possible that Charlie, along with Shannon, Eko, Ben's daughter and so many others could still be alive. It would certainly make for one crazy final year. And it would be an even more brilliant facet of the "ABC House" promos, using them to tease upcoming events in the new season. (UPDATE: Video after the jump). And thanks to Justin Cox for the tip.

It's been just a little over a year since "Dayman" took the world by storm (that may be an exaggeration) in the season three It's Always Sunny ep "Sweet Dee's Dating a Retarded Person." Everyone knows the lyrics, there are tee-shirts, cell-phone ringtones, and now Charlie has taken his opus to a new level - musical.

Mac demonstrates his elbow dance move to Charlie.
(S03E15) "Your illiteracy has screwed us again Charlie!" - Mac

1:15 PM. On a Saturday. Philadelphia, PA. Last call at Paddy's bar for the season... and possibly forever. Why you ask? Because thanks to Charlie's pea-sized brain, a bum now owns Paddy's. Of course, Charlie isn't entirely to blame. Add in Frank's sedative brownies and Rickety Cricket beating in Dee's legs, and it becomes hard to say where the ultimate blame should rest. While this wasn't the best episode, the ending made for a good cliffhanger. In the past year, FX has rewarded Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me, and Damages with meaty renewals. Here's to hoping that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is extended the same courtesy.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: The Gang Gets Whacked

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
(S03E12 / S03E13) "Hold on. Nobody's gonna get whacked off today!" - Dee

Every sitcom does it and it was only a matter of time until It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia hopped on the "hour long episode" bandwagon. Sometimes it's a finale or a premiere, but in this case it was FX taking advantage of the first day of November sweeps. Often it works and sometimes it doesn't. As much as I love this show (and the same goes for The Office and the four hour-longs its season started with), I just can't endorse more double-length installments like this. The uneven balance between the good and the bad is just far too obvious. At times during this episode, I felt like I was watching a bunch of mediocre deleted scenes that I'd normally expect to see as a bonus on a DVD set.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Dennis Looks Like a Registered Sex Offender

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Oct 26th 2007 10:31AM

Danny DeVito(S03E11) "Yeah, that's right. A maid. A maid I can bang." - Frank

You know, they say that somewhere in the world, everyone has a double. Or at least someone that looks awfully close to them. Dennis definitely got the short end of the stick. Nobody wants to look like a convicted child molester. However, only Dennis would be stupid enough to try and prove that he's not the portly guy depicted in the fliers all over the neighborhood.

For the most part though, Dennis' look-alike issues took a backseat to the rest of the episode which focused on a lot of little plotlines from previous episodes that came together. It was great to see some of that stuff. Then again, it was also great to see Dennis try and prove he's not a child molester by donning a fake moustache and trying to teach kids some exercise techniques with no shirt on. So smart.
