Although I hated the "billion dollar idea" that Walden and his business partner, Billy, worked on for most of the episode ha ha, I loved Alan because he's what made the show funny tonight - cudos to Jon Cryer! And there was no Lyndsey even or Zoey to bring out the crazy in Alan on tonight's Two and a Half Men. Jon Cryer reacts comically to all of the characters whether its the female bartender, Berta, Jake, Billy or Walden.
Three Stooges and one computer
Alan lets Billy, Walden's ex business partner who Walden didn't want to see anymore, in the house because he's influenced by the words "billion dollar idea." As Walden and Billy resolve their past differences and start talking about the big project in computer jargon that Alan - and I - are totally clueless about, I have a nice nap! This is way too boring ...
But, things pick up again, when Alan feels left out because Walden's best friend seems to now be Billy and not Alan. After going to a bar and spilling his guts to the female bartender, it's funny when Alan shows up on Berta's doorstep! Berta scowls at first, but then they hug when Alan wants Berta to be his friend. In a classic and great Berta crack she tells Alan that if his hands wander, the friendship is over!
The not so great idea
Soon, the episode is focused back on Walden and Billy and their big "billion dollar idea" of a computer project. I'm not laughing at the childish storyline of Billy and Walden trying to stop to take a pee while each working on a lap top. Seriously, is that supposed to be funny? Maybe it would have been if it was Jon Cryer doing it. Sigh.
Anyway, near the end of the episode, we finally get the reveal on that great idea. Maybe it's just me, but when it turns out that Walden and Billy have mastered the idea to black out entire states and countries I'm again baffled. Doesn't this belong in The Dark Knight or something and not Two and a Half Men?
Did anyone love this episode and can help me see the light? (pun intended)
