Episode cast overview:


Alan learns that asking Charlie to help him punish Jake makes it harder, the naughty knaves rather play together. Charlie learns, also the hard way, a boy that immature can't be left uncontrolled, he even feeds seagulls till they take over the bedroom. Alan refuses to learn Judith asks him for chores to exploit his domestic skills, even a kiss when he announces to stop coming round on Charlie's advice is just a ploy. Charlie learns ignoring a repentant kid isn't right either. Written by KGF Vissers

When the relation between Charlie and Jake is exploited well
10 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

In this second episodes we get to know better the character of Jake who is punishes by his father. The relation Charlie-Jake begins to be completely handled with the laxness of Charlie which is not used to punishing somebody. Certain passages with birds are nice but nothing transcendent in this episode where it is especially Charlie who gets out while the going is good with his(her) usual corrosive humor. If it is a little less good that first this episode remains completely good, well given rhythm. The series still looks itself for little while remaining all the same very entertaining. The continuation(suite) will be there only better.
