Two and a Half Men "Above Exalted Cyclops" review by Connie Norberg


written by Connie Norberg

Charlie seems to be in love this time with Chelsea so he agrees to let

her set his brother, Alan on a blind double date with one of her very

good friends. Charlie shows concern for his brothers child-like

behavior and thinks it's about time he engage in a relationship with a

woman now since he has been divorced for quite some time. So Charlie

informs his brother that he will be going on a blind date, to which

Alan reluctantly agrees. As they meet up with Chelsea and her friend at

the restaurant for dinner, they slowly begin to realize the shock about

to hit them: Chelsea's friend turns out to be Charlie's stalker, Rose!

While Chelsea has no clue, she continues to introduce her friend to

both Charlie and Alan. The looks on their faces were priceless!

It appears that Rose has decided to pretend that she has never met

either one of the brothers before. With that, Charlie and Alan begin to

give in and play along too for sake of possibly losing Charlie's

girlfriend, Chelsea. Charlie is on a mission now to find out Rose's

angle; there must some hidden meaning to her madness. After all, why

would she want to have a date with Alan when she has been Charlie's

stalker for all these years?

Much to Charlie's dismay, he begins to see that Alan may possibly be

falling into Rose's trap. Quickly he consoles his brothers engagement

but it seems to fail. For Alan has fallen for Rose and Rose fallen for

Alan, it would seem. But Charlie is not buying that. He knows Rose all

too well and fears she is doing this to get back at him for dumping her

in the past. So he decided to confront her soon after. Rose explains

that she was doing Charlie a favor by check on his girlfriend to make

sure she was not nuts! So she began to stalk Chelsea and thus lead to

their close-knit friendship.

Turns out, Rose did fall for Alan. But the minute she became obsessed

with him, he quickly explained to her that there has to be boundaries.

After agreeing with him, she went on to tell him she did not like the

new "Alan" who is not so passive. The next morning, she had apparently

super glued one of his model cars to his lower abdomen. Charlie knew

very well what this means; Rose is no longer obsessed with Alan.

Perhaps she has the obsession for both Charlie and Alan out of her

system - or not.

The best way to sum this comical episode up is in one word by Charlie's

maid, Berta, "diabolical!"
