Storyline

Alan and Jake move into Charlie's beach-house permanently, ex Judith even helps arrange Jake's room. When the kid gets sick and insists on getting nursed 'at home' by his mother (who ruthlessly refuses any reconciliation move), Alan feels like a 'total failure', comparing himself to another guinea-pig which didn't survive Jake's neglect. Charlie takes Alan drinking and, when drunk, both of them conclude (with the help of the taxi driver) that the root of the brothers' problems is their mother, so she gets a nightly, yet ill-planned visit.

The complex life of Alan Harper
10 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

The third episode of the series concentrates especially on Alan, the magnificent looser in particular on its complex relation with Judith, his(her,its) ex-woman. It is an episode below both first ones simply because the situations are less funny because the relation Alan-Judith is not so interesting. We still see in this episode Rose, the neighbor who harasses uneven Charlie, a character because a little limited.Rose will moreover be present throughout the series sometimes returning at regular intervals to help Charlie in her difficult phases. This episode is lacking strong funny situations even if one-liners always remain present. Roughly an episode creature of habit but where we encircle better the personality of Alan and his problems.
