Money can't buy happiness it contributes to it, 3 June 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This fourth episode is globally a good episode stuffed with good funny situations felt(smelt) with Jake who makes of under the water in the kitchen sink or Charlie who discovers in its car the bra of her mother. Jake once again takes away(gains) the piece but Charlie takes(brings) out very also with its usual pricking humor there. We also see a jealous Alan who eventually triumphs ephemerally at the end (one of the funniest gags when Alan releases(leaves) Judith and has to justify himself then). What is always refreshing in the series it is the disrespectful side which does not fall in vulgar down-market. In any case here is a good not flawless episode but at the moment the best of the season just.

The injustice of the school, 2 June 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This third episode is of a good level but does not get loose either from other episodes of the same kind(genre). It is a classic episode where is underlined well the hypocrisy of the characters in particular the mistress(teacher) of rather funny, more completely absurd Jake. Jake is once again due to his(her) funny moving naivety. The dialogs are globally good without being excellent and the repetition(rehearsal) in the humor is effective but a little bit easy.

It is especially Charlie still who develops the intrigue which shows itself at least predictable even if from start to finish it remains entertaining. For summary no unforgettable episode but a real pleasure to follow all this especially when Jake sees Charlie and his(her) mistress(teacher) together.

The explanations of the hatred of Charlie to her mother, 31 May 2013
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This second episode is rather good but would tend to rest(base) on the bases of the series without setting of risk. We follow two different stories(trouble) one with Charlie and one with Alan but none of the two really fascinates. It gives of the blow an at least uneven episode and what we can judge lazy person(sloth,lazy people,sloths). We see for the first time Herb, a minor character who will then become more important. There is always the conflicting relation between Charlie and her mother but this relation remains in the end unchanged, without considerable evolution.Very fortunately the typical black humor of the sitcom still works thanks to an Alan blunderer, the scathing retorts are present but do not make laugh constantly regrettably. To end we can thus say that we feel(smell) arrived signs of weaknesses even if the series stays of a good level thanks to its numerous resources.

Problematic relationship between Charlie and Alan, 31 May 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

It first one(night) episode of the second season establishes(constitutes) a good episode but slightly disappointing for several reasons. First of all in view(sight) of guest luxury stars in presence such Sean Penn, Elvis Costello we could expect in better, has more inventiveness. The scenario is rather thin and the humor works especially thanks to the charisma of the actors in presence. Charlie is here at the height of his(her) cruelty to his staggering brother of clumsiness. The nasty comic walks(works) at top speed(full capacity).Furthermore, this episode does not stand out completely and is especially considerable for his(her) distinguished guests who do not leave too much their usual registers. In any case the everything remains completely amusing and nice with an Alan sticking in magnificent looser.

Charlie and the children, 31 May 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This twenty-fourth and last episode of the first season stands out as being easily one of the best. Nevertheless the idea of departure is rather simple (Charlie who wants to be made a vasectomy) but she(it) is exploited(run) completely and effectively. Jake is particularly funny here because he is always out of step with the reality. Charlie Sheen is also in great form with its caustic, cynical retorts. This final episode leans on funny, hilarious situations in their incongruities.

We are also conquered by the wholesome freedom of speech of the set(group) with a humor friendly trash which settles only few limits. In summary a very good solid episode not the best step but to see again(to revise) with pleasure regularly because no scene(stage) is low(weak) and it is thus conquered that we stop seeing this first season (one of the best of the sitcom).

Charlie and the utility of the women, 31 May 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This twenty-third episode establishes(constitutes) a robust very representative episode of the global tone of the series. New conflict between Alan and Judith because of the influence of Charlie on Jake. Indeed, Charlie speaks in front of him of its conception(design) of the woman, a conception(design) of course sexist and misogynist. But Charlie managed to knock down the situation thanks to the manipulation. The irony of the situations always walks(works) hardly quite as the dialogs rather successful altogether. The craftiness of Charlie takes him(it) every time.Nevertheless in spite of all its qualities, the episode does not assert itself as a big reference just as an episode which shows efficiency but which is lacking originality in its sequences. But he(it) stays at the top of the basket of this rich season which will have almost kept all its promises.

Alan's problems, 30 May 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This twenty-second episodes focuses especially on Alan's multiple psychological problems which(who) is frustrated. It is a good funny, fluid episode in its chain(sequence of movements) with effective minor characters as Rose ( usual quirky humor) and psychologist. It is moreover the scene(stage) at the psychologist who shows himself as being the funniest thanks to the humor of Charlie but also Alan's release. The retorts sharp come from all sides(spurt out) and what makes the humor work it is also the association with the protagonists who complement each other between them.The everything remains entertaining in spite of some small defects and scenes(stages) which are never constantly hilarious. In any case light one gone back up(raised) with regard to(compared with) previous both episodes.

The hazards of the blackmail, 30 May 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

It twenty-first episodes of the first season is an episode of classic good behavior that does not distinguish itself by its originality. He(it) is served well by the dialogs always so incisive and by the cynical side of the situation. Furthermore, we are entitled has an interesting guest star: Heather Locklear who plays a corrupt lawyer who uses(wears out) blackmail. Once again it is the attitude removed inhibitions by Charlie and his(her,its) particular lifestyle which(who) bring felt(smelt) good funny situations.This politically incorrect episode is situated little near in the average of this season which distinguishes itself by its regularity and which managed skillfully to avoid the too heavy repetitions(rehearsals) even if the themes of the episodes stay the same. Besides we are entitled has the good end which leans on a hackneyed but always effective gag.

The bad mood of Jake, 17 April 2013
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

With this twentieth episode the series accuses one enough level sharp drop while staying at a very honorable level. Why? Simply because the intrigue is too thin and does not rest(base) on not much (Jake's temporary bad mood). Of more the humor sometimes sinks into the repetition(rehearsal) (Jake plays badly the guitar always the same piece) and in the heaviness (the gag of the not funny puppet). The coming of the shrink does not really sort out things. Fortunately some retorts remain funny thanks to Charlie and Alan, without forgetting Jake's funny mimes. But the intrigue results in no evolution of the character of Jake who becomes again happy at the end, where from the feeling to have had to deal with an episode of filling. In summary uneven, a little bit lazy episode at the level of the scenario and of the inventiveness of gags but which remains enjoying to look.

Jake's animated anniversary, 17 April 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This nineteenth episode is a part of big moments of this season which is undoubtedly one of the best of the famous sitcom. We are entitled to the wholesome coming of beautiful Teri Hatcher in luxury guest-star who plays the sister of Judith, Liz. Liz turns out to be the complete opposite of her sister: she(it) is frivolous, flirty, little serious. The contribution of this character is important in this episode because it is thanks to her that we have the funniest moments with a humor always so incisive and nasty. The hilarious retorts come from all sides(spurt out) almost constantly to such a point that we reach(affect) almost the excellent level of seventh and twelfth episodes. Jake makes us have a good laugh with his(her) failed magic tricks and the sexual references are even funnier than usually all this during Jake's birthday(anniversary) which is now eleven years old. Here is a reference episode due to its joke and due to his(her) characters who are any excellent in their different registers.
