Synopsis from DVD Cover:
Television's #1 comedy celebrates five seasons of funny with big laughs and hilarious new storylines. Charlie (Charlie Sheen) tops the charts as kiddie-song sensation Charlie Waffles. Alan (Jon Cryer) at last meets the perfect woman who just happens to be dating Charlie. Jake (Angus T. Jones) starts junior high, armed with reams of "helpful" advice from Alan and Charlie. Evelyn (Holland Taylor) ties the knot for the fifth time (lots of guests at the wedding, lots of cops at the reception). And as always, Berta (Conchata Ferrell) deals with it all by dealing out a royal flush of deadpan zingers. The guys are in and the welcome mat is out at everyone's favorite Malibu beach house. Have a great time!
"Two and a Half Men" has a very plain formula. Take a shallow, irresponsible womanizer and put him in the same house with his hard-working, unlucky brother and nephew. Add a stalker, a heartless mother, an obnoxious housekeeper and a terrible ex-wife and the result is pure comedy gold.
Storylines range from Alan (Jon Cryer) desperately trying to make money to Charlie (Charlie Sheen) getting into trouble due to alcohol or irresponsible behavior. But the overall story keeps pushing forward and each episode is aware of all the previous ones.
In the fifth season, Alan's son Jake gets ready for junior high school, Charlie decides to date someone his own age, Evelyn (Mom) gets married to a seemingly rich man, Charlie realizes that he loves his stalker, Alan volunteers for a drug trial and then there's Charlie Waffles, who loves boobies.
Special features are a bit weak, showing a featurette celebrating the 100th episode and a breakdown of one of the episode in which a murder is committed and a CSI team is brought in to solve the case.
This is easily one of the best shows on television. You might one day catch it by accident and fall in love with the dirty jokes, hilarious situations and unique characters, but I suggest not waiting for that day. Give it a chance today.
