'Two And A Half Men' Recap – A Straw In My Donut Hole

May 8th, 2012 10:00am EDT
Two And A Half Men
This must be a dream. Alan’s returned from hospital to find a ‘Welcome Home’ greeting from his friends and family at the Beach House. Surely, we’re looking at a Two and A Half Men apocalypse.

In the last episode, Alan reacted to Walden’s decision to have Zoey and Anna stay at the Beach House by having a minor heart attack. Walden felt so guilty that he paid for Alan’s hospital stay, and allowed him to live with him for as long as he needed.

This week, Walden is being very solicitous of Alan, carrying his bags, and worrying about Alan’s health. When they return home from Alan’s second tr...

'Two And A Half Men' Recap: Kathy Bates Nails It As Charlie's Ghost

Two And A Half Men
Previously on Two and a Half Men, Zoey and daughter Ava moved in to the Beach House with Walden, while Alan stayed with Lyndsey. Neither man enjoyed their changed circumstances, and couldn’t wait for things to get back to ‘normal.’

As Walden wondered how to tell Zoey that he just couldn’t live with Ava’s energy level, Zoey told him that he had become Ava’s hero, and that he was all she talked about. So Zoey thinks that perhaps it would be a good idea for the two of them to move in permanently.

Alan knocks at the door. He’s back! With suitcase in hand, he’s ready to move back in, but is s...

WO AND A HALF MEN
If Walden wants Zoey and her daughter Ava to move in with him, Alan will have to move out. Since its Spring Break, Walden has the perfect opportunity to propose that Alan stay with Lyndsey for a week, just for a trial period. If Zoey moves in, the situation could become permanent, says Walden, throwing Alan into a panic.

Berta’s not thrilled about having a child around the house either, and says she’ll just take the week off. Walden assures her that Zoey will take care of Ava; there will be no extra work for Berta to do. And Walden thinks that he’d better see what it’s like to live with A...

Two and a Half Men - Grandma's Pie
This week, the show picks up two story lines from the recent past – Walden’s on again/off again partnership with Billy Stanhope, and Alan and Lyndsey’s mothers getting together. But the real shocker is that Walden may actually be contemplating a change in the Beach House’s living arrangements; could Alan really, finally, have to grow up and move out? Hang on … in episode 13, back in January, Walden made a deal with Alan - Alan is now half owner of the Beach House, at least on paper. Alan doesn’t have any rights to sell the property, or to borrow against it, but he can tell women it’s his ho...

Q&A: Courtney Thorne-Smith Talks 'Two and a Half Men'

April 9th, 2012 8:00am EDT
Courtney Thorne-Smith
Courtney Thorne-Smith has made a name for herself in television, whether you remember her breakout role on the original Melrose Place, or her portrayal of Georgia Thomas on Ally McBeal, or her stint as Cheryl on the long-running According To Jim. These days, she's brought her experience and energy to Two and a Half Men as Lyndsey MacElroy, the on-again, off-again girlfriend of Alan (Jon Cryer).

I recently talked with Courtney about what she enjoys about the role, her thoughts on the transition from Charlie Sheen to Ashton Kutcher, and if she can possibly pick a favorite part from her sma...

Walden talks long distance with Zoey, who’s still in England. They miss each other, and Walden gets rather lovey dovey. He also tells her that neither Alan nor Jake will be living at the Beach House forever.

Walden tells Jake and Eldridge they’re welcome to play video games on the big screen TV. Alan and Lyndsey have gone to pick up her mother at the rest home, which Eldridge calls “The International House of Old People, “ or IHOOP for short. Eldridge gets upset when Jake comments on Alan and Lyndsey having sex.

Walden comments on how calm the boys seem, despite both coming from divorced...

Two And A Half Men - Not in my mouth
So let’s say you’re a TV writer, and you have completely run out of ideas for your character. Do you scour the Internet for new products, get out of your filthy apartment and see what normal people do, or even quit your job as the abject failure you are? Not if you write for Two and a Half Men, you don’t. You dig down deep in your psyche, and try to find an incident in your miserable past where you were so desperate to have sex with a woman that you would put up with literally anything she did, no matter how vile or disgusting. Like projectile vomiting. In your mouth. Don’t say I didn’t w...

As Lyndsey enjoys Alan’s foot massage, Walden and Zoey arrive home from the opera. Flushed with the performance, Zoey raves that Walden even cried, although he didn’t seem to really understand what was on the stage. Lyndsey puts down the opera as ‘fat people singing in a foreign language for two and a half hours.’

Zoey comments that opera is not for everyone; to appreciate it requires a refined taste and a certain amount of education. And they’re off! Lyndsey defends her education, which Zoey easily trumps with her superior schooling. The guys try to diffuse the situation, but neither woma...

As Walden and Zoey prepare for an evening out, he is surprised to find that Zoey is not a fan of his beard. He had assumed that she liked it as much as he did. But that’s not the case, and she’d like him to shave, and as soon as possible. She’s also not crazy about the ‘Jennifer Aniston’ hairdo.

In the living room, Alan isn’t having much luck creating an online dating profile. Walden invites him to join them for dinner.

At the restaurant, Zoey notices how food catches in Walden’s beard. Alan defends Walden’s rugged, sexy look. Zoey reiterates that women prefer men to be properly groomed. ...

It’s 28 days after Alan’s break from reality, and he is ready to leave the hospital, a new man. Well, actually, an old man – he’s lost his ‘Charlie’ persona and is back to being good old Alan, the leech. His nurse is less than supportive – there have been bets on when he’d be toilet trained, and another that says he’ll be back before Christmas. Is Alan ready to step back into the world, even with medication and the new tools he has learned for coping?

First things first – a warm goodbye from his loony bin roommate, Gary Busey. “"Hope you weren't planning on leaving before you gave your ol...

Dang! It just keeps getting worse! Just when you thought Two and A Half Men had reached the nadir, it plummets even further. This episode pulled out all the lowest stops – we now know that Alan and Charlie were truly brothers, because Alan’s past behavior is pretty darn bad as well.

When Lyndsay turns down Alan’s request for ‘after expensive dinner’ sex, he takes his Viagra enhanced sex drive downstairs, opts for some porn channel surfing, and discovers that Lyndsay did a little acting in her youth. He’s both turned on and turned off, and is cool to her the next morning.

An Open Letter To Paul Abdul: Leaving 'Idol' Is A Bad Idea

Paula Abdul
Dear Paula Abdul,

I am writing on behalf of the Shelley Longs, Geri Halliwells, Wayne Rogers and Sherry Stringfields of the world when I give you three simple words of advice regarding your decision to leave American Idol: Don't do it.

I'm not really sure why you'd need me to tell you this, but based on the rumors flying across the Internet and the statements of your own manager, you're really thinking about leaving the most successful television series of the decade over some sort of personal insult. Or is it money? Nobody can really be sure what's going through your pill-filled head...

Famous June Brides: Happily Ever After?

June 3rd, 2008 8:30am EDT
Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban
Historically, some married in the month of June to honor Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage. Others did it to time conception so births wouldn't interfere with harvest work. Brides in the 15th century chose to marry in June because it coincided with their "annual bath" - you read right - thus ensuring a relatively sweet-smelling honeymoon.

Centuries later, June has remained the most popular month to wed. In MGM's 1954 Academy Award-winning musical, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers the song "June Bride" trills: "Oh, they say when you marry in June, you're a bride all your life."

'Melrose Place': Where Are They Now?

Melrose Place
Sixteen years ago we were first introduced to Melrose Place, an innocent (at least it started that way) spin-off of Beverly Hills, 90210 that took place in a West Hollywood apartment complex. I know as an 8-year-old boy I was excited to see what the lives of 20-something people would be like. I assumed lots of swimming and talking about art. I was wrong, so very very wrong. Seeing as the show ended its run almost 10 years ago we should look back and see just where those over-sexed and off-kilter roommates have gone. Now I can relate to what the show was about!
