Storyline

Charlie enjoys teaching 'blank page' Jake dirty jokes. Alan has flu, so Rose imposes herself as his 'intimate' nurse, until Evelyn arrives and takes over. Charlie insists on double-dating with Alan, in order to have revenge on his ex, Kathy. Alan suddenly agrees because his date turns out to be the soap star Desiree. To get Alan back on his feet, the Harper boys go to the sauna but all they manage to do is catch the flu. Sick, the brothers exchange confidences about career frustrations and bicker about chiropractics, at the worst possible moment. Written by KGF Vissers

As with the end of every episode, Chuck Lorre has his own Vanity Card. This episode vanity card reads in part. "CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS 113 Every so often I'm hit with an overwhelmingly urge to write. An inchoate feeling wells up inside me and demands to substantiate itself through the power of words. When I sat down to write this vanity card, I was in the grip of such a feeling. Thankfully, it has passed." See more »

A solid first series episode
19 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

One of the nice things about these early episodes of the show is that there are very little plot. This means that the relationships of the characters can really shine through, as can the performances from Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer.

There's not a lot going on in this episode, other than both the ill Harper brothers trying to get well enough to go out on a double date.

There are some nice interactions along the way though, and some sharp lines that more than make up for the lack of plot.

Overall a decent episode in a good first series.
