Default Two and a Half Men - The Complete Fifth Season DVD Review

Season 5 of Two and a Half Men is on DVD, and I really think youíre going to enjoy the show. If youíve never seen the plot, itís really an absurd premise but somehow it works. Charlie Sheen, playing one of the biggest stretches of his acting career, plays the character Charlie Harper -- a persistent bachelor known for his numerous one-night-stands with a wild and eclectic variety of women. How Charlie managed to get into character for this taxing role I donít know, but it surely speaks to his acting talent. On the flip-side we have Charlieís lovably annoying brother Alan (played by actor Jon Cryer). Alan is an annoying pain in the rear end to Charlieís fun and all around stick in the mud -- but since theyíre brothers and The Odd Couple was such a successful formula, there you go. Thrown into the mix is Alanís son from a prior marriage Jake, played by Angus T. Jones.

The reason this show has proven to be so popular is that itís a mixture of several favorite sitcom traditions -- the mismatched roommates of The Odd Couple, the mile-long list of family comedies, and many more -- plus it mixes in Charlie Sheen getting to play the role he truly was born to play. I mention this, a lot, but really the Charlie *character* is just Charlie Sheen slightly cleaned up into a sitcom package and placed into a family situation. Nothing more. And thatís part of the charm.
