Welcome back, Charlie. I don't mean Charlie Sheen, who came back from rehab and was back at work on the set of the show. I'm talking about Charlie Harper, who has had his man berries crushed by Chelsea and the engagement and the prospect of a June wedding at the Bel Air hotel. For the first time in a long time, Charlie had his old spunky, devil-may-care attitude back. What a relief!

Oh my my... have we seen the future of 'Two and a Half Men' and it's Alan and Charlie sitting on a couch vegetating, bickering and grateful to have each other to clean up their dribble? Maybe. And if you think Charlie's gotten over Chelsea, think again. Evelyn might want to hang on to the banquet hall at the Beverly Hills Hotel. More on that and the dancing Japanese Kabuki transsexuals after the jump.

Holy hoochey-mama! Looked like the old Charlie Harper was back by the time all was said and done. For a while there, it wasn't a certainty. Charlie had all the symptoms of a Woody Allen schlemiel as 'Two and a Half Men' ventured into territory that seemed out of kilter. It was like the Kubler-Ross five stages of grief. Fortunately, acceptance for Charlie was just a bender away. More on that and the $18,000, too, after the jump.

Review: 'Two and a Half Men' - 'Aye, Aye Captain'

(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' - 'Crude and Uncalled For'

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 2nd 2010 9:01AM
charlie_sheen_fetal_position_cbs(S07E14) Uh oh -- has Charlie made a critical error in his relationship with Chelsea? It depends on how to look at it, but the Humpster misplayed the situation in this episode and that "to be continued" at the end suggests that something wicked may be coming.

On the plus side, it looks like Alan won't be losing his man-cherry in the slammer, and Jake has a future in horror movie sound effects.

Alan has shown more talent on his man-dates with Herb than the Internet dates he's had. He was in rare form with the latest eHarmony hook-up, talking socks and sex. If he still had his ventriloquist's dummy, he would have pulled it out. But Alan did show us something we'd never seen from him before. The monster. Okay, it was just one lucky punch, but still...

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.

Review: Two and a Half Men - Warning. It's Dirty.

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."

For more on Marty and Charlie's trouble making antics, read on.

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.

Last week, I wasn't thrilled with the CBS Monday night sitcom schedule. In fact, I thought all four shows were a bit off, and more than a few readers thought I was off the rails for speaking my mind. Fortunately -- for me -- this week's shows were back on track and I have only good things to say. That's especially true about Two and a Half Men. Seven years into the show, an episode like this one stands out as very original and really funny.

This was also the episode in which Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer guested as Chelsea's old college roommate. That's not a spoiler; that's in the picture. More about the show -- including spoilers -- 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 meet Tricia Helfer

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 16th 2009 10:03AM
Tricia_Helfer_USATricia Helfer is a really, really good actress. Before she was killed on Burn Notice, I wanted her dead for what she did to Michael. On Battlestar Galactica, as Six, she was a stone cold Cylon killer. She's very good at convincing me that she's dangerous. But can she do comedy? Hmm ... I guess we're going to find out. Tricia Helfer will guest on Two and a Half Men in an upcoming episode.

According to Michael Ausiello of EW.com, Tricia will be playing a good friend of Charlie's fiancee, Chelsea, who has recently ended a bad relationship. As an act of kindness, Chelsea asks her to come out to Malibu for a visit.

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.
