Alan tries to cure Walden's divorce grief with alcohol and cable porn. Thus they discover that Lyndsey has starred in such a revealing production. Alan first mounts his high horse, then overdoes 'letting her off' by admitting his own moral deviations, hence ends up dumped. Walden meanwhile seeks simpler comfort in baking sweet stuff, but Berta spikes a cake. To cheer up Alan, he throws a libertine party, unknowing Lyndsey is coming to give Alan another chance. Walden prevents her finding Alan 'anughty', yet he repeats his excessive honesty. Written by KGF Vissers

Squalid and puerile.
20 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you want to spend 20 minutes of your life watching men talk about masturbating then Two and a Half men is for you. I don't want to do that so will not be watching again. The series has always been smutty yes and pretty much always got away with it, but this episode has sank to a depth you would hope it can recover from. As the other reviewer says, Jon Cryer is doing his best, but with this kind of storyline and script to work with you have to wonder how long he will do it for. Ashton Kutchner brings nothing to the show and plays his part like he's purely doing it for the cash (I'm not saying I wouldn't do the same if asked!) All in all the new series disappoints (and I am not a big Charlie fan). When you put this up against something like the Big Bang Theory, the superiority in the Bangs clever, witty writing makes the humour in Men seem like something off a toilet wall.
