Series cast summary:
 Alan Harper / ... (262 episodes, 2003-2015)
 Jake Harper / ... (226 episodes, 2003-2015)
 Berta (211 episodes, 2003-2015)
 Charlie Harper (178 episodes, 2003-2011)


The Harper brothers Charlie and Alan are almost opposites but form a great team. They have little in common except their dislike for their mundane, maternally cold and domineering mother, Evelyn. Alan, a compulsively neat chiropractor and control-freak, is thrown out by his manipulative wife Judith who nevertheless gets him to pay for everything and do most jobs in the house. Charlie is a freelance jingle composer and irresistible Cassanova who lives in a luxurious beach-house and rarely gets up before noon. Charlie "temporarily" allows Alan and his son Jake, a food-obsessed, lazy school kid who shuttles between his parents, to move in with them after Alan's separation/divorce. The sitcom revolves around their conflicting lifestyles, raising Jake (who has the efficient, caring dad while having a ball with his fun-loving sugar uncle who teaches him boyish things), and bantering with Evelyn and various other friends and family. Other fairly regular characters include Charlie's cleaning ... Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


In 2012, Angus T. Jones (who plays Jake) appeared in a video for the Forerunner Seventh Day Adventist Church in which he talked about his religious beliefs and observances. He also criticized his TV show on religious grounds, saying, "Jake from 'Two and a Half Men means nothing. He is a non-existent character. If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men.' I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it; please stop filling your head with filth. Please. You know, people say it's just entertainment. The fact that it's some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television, and especially with what you watch on television. It's bad news....I don't know if it means any more coming from me, but you might not have heard it otherwise. Just watch out. Watch out. A lot of people don't like to think about how deceptive the enemy is. He's [the devil has] been doing this for a lot longer than any of us have been around. So we can't play around. There's no playing around when it comes to eternity." Jones subsequently apologized to the cast and crew for any "indifference and disrespect" he showed to them, while not disavowing his views on the show itself. As a result, Jones was removed from the regular cast after the 10th season. (Jake stated that he was transferring to Japan.) While he was announced as a "recurring character" for Season 11, he no longer appeared on the show. In 2014, Jones officially announced his departure from the show stating that he had been "a paid hypocrite". Nonetheless, Jones returned for the series finale, with Jake explaining that a cash bequest from Charlie led to his winning "two and a half-million!" during a Las Vegas honeymoon, which he and his new bride invested.

Crazy Credits

The Chuck Lorre Productions vanity card at the end of each episode consists of the words "Chuck Lorre Productions", the vanity card number, and a short essay or mini screenplay that changes with each episode. Topics have included a riff on slang words that Lorre wants to coin, the reason a certain scene containing the line of dialog that was used as the episode's title was edited out, and a screenplay about Lorre's assistant entering his office and finding him curled up in the fetal position.

charlie come back
2 October 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

10/10 with charlie 1/10 without him....

its like taking the motor out of a lamborghini and replace it with 2 pedals for the driver. its not a lamborghini anymore. face it.

the whole concept of the show is based on charlies character. it makes absolutely no sense to continue without him. the only reason they do, they want the money so hard, since two and a half men was the most successful TV show. a lot of people say sheen went crazy, i say: charlie was right when he flipped out and offended the producers. it doesn't look like they love what they do, they just love the money. he wants double the money? pay him and get him back, only way to rescue a sinking boat. the show will be cancelled soon, if they continue like this.
