Two and a Half Men
Another rerun, and while I've only seen two episodes of this show this season, this was one of them. Isn't that always the way? My friend had been sitting on my couch during Crossing Jordan
saying she never watches the show, but she'd seen tonight's "second helping" at her parents' house in October. Anyway, this Men
still cracked me up. I loved Charlie's response to Berta's "Are you going to quit drinking" question when he complained of a hangover. "Don't be ridiculous. I'm going to quit waking up." Good plan. I just think that for a mainstream comedy, this show gets away with a lot. It seems so typical with its bright colors and that adorable little kid, but conversations between Charlie and Alan often border on the questionable. For example:
Charlie: My houseguests bring a bottle of wine and have sex with me.
Alan: I'll go get a bottle of chardonnay and assume the position.
Charlie: Don't be letting your mouth write checks your ass can't cash.
Now Im not a prude, and some of my favorite shows walk that fine line between tasteless and tasteful, I'm just often surprised, especially with the things that come out of Jake's mouth... or go into Jake's mouth. Like the corn and the whole "cornversation" about what happens to the vegetable as it does, or rather doesn't, get properly digested and then exited from the system. That's some real potty talk.
