DVD TV Series Review: Two and a Half Men The Complete First Season
Emmy Award-nominated Two and a Half Men is a comedy about men, women, sex, dating, divorce, money and, most importantly, love. More specifically, it's about the lives of two brothers, one brother's son, and the many women who surround them.
Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen) is a well-to-do bachelor with a house at the beach, a Mercedes in the garage and an easy way with women. His casual Malibu lifestyle is interrupted when his tightly wound brother Alan (Jon Cryer) and his son Jake (Angus T. Jones) come to stay with him.
Complicating matters further are Charlie and Alan's narcissistic, emotionally toxic mother Evelyn; Alan's neurotic ex-wife Judith; Charlie's domineering, unapologetically blue-collar housekeeper Berta; and Rose, a brilliantly manipulative and vaguely crazy neighbor who had a brief fling with Charlie, is obsessed with him and is determined to stay in his life by whatever means necessary.
Despite the complexities of their lives and their own strained relationship, Charlie and Alan have one thing in common -- they both love Jake and want what's best for him. As a result, they manage to create a little family unit that promises to make each of them a better man.

Critic Quotes and Reviews:
- One of the most endearing new comedies of the year. Washington Post
- Charlie Sheen takes a starring role in TWO AND A HALF MEN, a genial CBS comedy about a dysfunctional family. Sheen plays Charlie Harper, who enjoys the bachelor life in his Malibu beach house. His existence consists of an endless stream of partying and dating until his brother, Alan (Jon Cryer), moves in with him. Alan's life has fallen apart after a separation from his wife, but he still has custody of his 10-year-old son, Jake (Angus T. Jones), who also moves into Charlie's Malibu home. Supporting characters include Alan's ex-wife, and Charlie and Alan's overbearing mother. The makeshift family formed by Charlie, Alan, and Jake provides plenty of laughs and a few poignant moments in this complete first season of episodes. Buy.com
