Storyline

The Harper brothers Charlie and Alan are almost opposites but form a great team. They have little in common except their dislike for their mundane, maternally cold and domineering mother, Evelyn. Alan, a compulsively neat chiropractor and control-freak, is thrown out by his manipulative wife Judith who nevertheless gets him to pay for everything and do most jobs in the house. Charlie is a freelance jingle composer and irresistible Cassanova who lives in a luxurious beach-house and rarely gets up before noon. Charlie "temporarily" allows Alan and his son Jake, a food-obsessed, lazy kid who shuttles between his parents, to move in with them after Alan's separation/divorce. The sitcom revolves around their conflicting lifestyles, raising Jake (who has the efficient, caring dad while having a ball with his fun-loving sugar uncle who teaches him boyish things), and bantering with Evelyn and various other friends and family. Other fairly regular characters include Charlie's cleaning lady ... Written by KGF Vissers

Crazy Credits

The Chuck Lorre Productions vanity card at the end of each episode consists of the words "Chuck Lorre Productions", the vanity card number, and a short essay or mini screenplay that changes with each episode. Topics have included a riff on slang words that Lorre wants to coin, the reason a certain scene containing the line of dialog that was used as the episode's title was edited out, and a screenplay about Lorre's assistant entering his office and finding him curled up in the fetal position.

We need Charlie back
4 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

I have an idea to get Charlie back. What if Rose threw the wrong guy under the train (because Charlie stepped back to look at all the girls). Charlie saw and is on the run trying to get home....probably sleeping his way home ;-) Waldon owns the house but could get back with his wife thanks to Alan's (Jake's?) help. Waldon is so grateful he gives the house to Alan as a big thank you. That's when Charlie shows up. Except now it's Alan's house and not his. Of course he can't afford to live there and does need Charlies money. What do you think? Could this work ? Good idea, bad idea???? I will really miss having this show on TV and if it keeps going the way it is people are going to stop watching. We need smart, not stupid humor. Where did the writers go.....did they leave too???
