Regarding Poor, Poor, Alan.
4 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am an ardent fan of "Two and a Half Men." I have seen every episode and have the first four seasons on DVD. This episode was very disturbing. It's not that it was not a good production; the episodes are always first-rate.

To begin with, at the "party" given for Alan (Jon Cryer,) nobody had anything nice to say about him, not even Charlie. Even the biggest cad -- Errol Flynn being a good example -- had redeeming qualities. Flynn loved to read and was fond of animals.

Secondly, when is love-starved Alan ever going to find his heart's desire? He was dumped by Judith (actually, no tragedy there,) Kandi, who Alan really loved, and now Melissa.* Alan is always portrayed as the quintessential loser, a flesh-and-blood Charlie Brown. It would be nice to see this intelligent and gentle man win every once in a while.

*I have to admit that with Melissa, it was Alan's fault.
