Storyline

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

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 you the man! Good pickup and a winner for CBS.
27 March 2006 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

It's nice to see one of my favorite actors back in the mix of things, now three seasons in. Charlie Sheen now has one of the better hit shows on TV. This is funny well written and sex driven material that keeps the whole show interesting. Good story lines with Charlie Sheen as a liberal California womanizer, who takes in his divorced brother a nervous and conservative Alan played by the funny Jon Cryer, and then his son the adorable Jake played by Angus T. Jones who adds sugar to the cake round out a fine trio of men, who despite differences in lifestyle help one another out along the way and live as a big happy family. Always being a big Charlie Sheen fan it's nice to see him have success like this, even though it's coming on TV and not the big screen movies, he can still be a major factor in any comedy parts as it has been proved with this gem.
