Storyline

Alan lectures Charlie for teaching Jake to gamble and tipping pizza boy Ted $50. Alas, Berta's shopping shows that his credit-card is maxed out and is cut up. Stan explains that four months of expenses which exceed his income have wiped him out financially, until his next royalties pay-out. After missing a shipping date by buying cheap generic stuff and having to tip Ted $2, Charlie swallows his pride, then tears up the check rather then dine with Evelyn. Rose volunteers a loan, pittance in her rich family, even begs he accepts it as a friend. Written by KGF Vissers

The lifestyle's of Charlie
14 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

This fourteenth episode treats(handles) money troubles of Charlie who spends too much money(silver) in all. Charlie has to learn to check quite his(her) tendencies, his(her) usual desires(envies). This episode has nothing exceptional but follows itself with pleasure thanks to the slaughter(cutting down) of Charlie Sheen still so excellent in this role which looks like him(her) enormously. The funny situations show themselves less effective sometimes but remain funny especially when Charlie asks for some money(silver) to her mother. The problem it is because an episode only on it it is a little bit thin and then because we do not see enough Jake. He(it) is also lacking striking minor characters. In any case this episode stays of a good level with an interesting basic idea but exploited(run) in a classic way without big imagination.
