Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Despite Alan's best efforts, Charlie's funeral is as unworthy as his 'accidental' demise in Paris after being caught cheating on Rose. Ma is only interested in a commission on selling the beach-house and won't take in Alan for long. Luckily Internet billionaire Walden Schmidt, as handsome and irresistible as Charlie, stumbles in after a 'failed' suicide attempt over a divorce. He buys the place generously offers to put up Alan and Jake 'a month, tops' in exchange for some help. Berta can't believe her luck her new boss is even richer than Charlie, as undemanding, more handsome and repeatedly naked. Alan discovers the downside: Walden also gets the girls even without trying.

Did You Know?


Jenna Elfman and Thomas Gibson briefly appear together for the first time in nearly a decade in this episode. The couple are presumed to be their namesakes in Dharma & Greg (1997), another television show co-created by Chuck Lorre, but are unnamed here due to licensing issues. Their scene is immediately followed by one featuring the duo's former costar Joel Murray as a delivery man. See more »

Pretty good. But.....
21 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's a shame Charlie Sheen did what he did. There could have been many more memorable moments with him in the show. Still, life goes on and a new character is introduced.

First lets kick off with Charlie's demise. It was a very in-character, if not gruesome, way to go, implying very much that another character murdered him. The funeral itself, although chuckle worthy, didn't really portray any real sadness from Charlie's relatives. It was pretty cool to see some of Charlie's old girlfriends again. And it was only natural that there was no other emotions from them other than anger towards him because of the way the character was with them all.

Then the introduction of Walden Schmidt. A very interesting way of bringing him in but not really the way I envisioned the character. He seemed to be a bit slow and dumb for a billionaire. He's pretty good but I'll wait for the second half to give my full verdict of the character. The big issue is the writer seems to be trying to inject "The Big Bang Theory" into the show and, let's be honest, that show SUCKS! I hope it doesn't turn into that and the show keeps it's own unique style.

Aside from these, Jake was unfunny, Alan was funny, the other characters were their usual selves. Not too bad at the moment. I'll watch the second half and see where things go.
