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.

Bring back Charlie!

OK, I've only seen a few episodes but as much as I like Ashton he isn't a blink on Charlie and his role sucks. John's character is out of whack now too. Too much Alan, and not in the same vain as the character I use to love. Confident, in control Alan is not what I want to see. Jake rocks but Bertha moving in is plain disturbing. Sheen may have blown it but if the producers know what's good for this awesome series they'll all get over themselves and bring back Charlie. His character is what this this show is all about. There was definitely something special about the dynamic of all the characters pre Charlie having a brain fade. Somehow the show managed to take a simple dynamic of all the characters and consistently come up with fabulous story lines. The show needs someone with the arrogance of Charlie. His dynamic with every other character was awesome and incredibly well crafted. Ashtons character is way too weepy for his ex. I keep wishing he'd grow some balls, like Charlie had. Sadly I'll be confined to the re-runs with Charlie in them. He was the show. Sorry producers but you took the jam out of my doughnut when you killed off Charlie. Let's hope you come to your senses and resurrect him before the show bombs completely.
