There's something to be said about a good situation setting up a situation comedy. It didn't take much to get Charlie off and running on this episode, and after a bit of yelling and a "drop dead," we were off to the races. How it spiraled from one thing to the other is one of the best things about Two and a Half Men. That and the ever-present kick in the pants that Alan endures time and time again, even when he doesn't deserve it.
Oh, and the flashbacks were worth every commercial break. "I Had the Time of My Life" indeed. More after the jump.
Gene Kelly once did a TV special called Dancing: A Man's Game. You wouldn't know it if you saw Alan teaching Charlie how to waltz, one-two-three, one-two-three. But the dancing was incidental when Evelyn pointed out to Charlie that before he says "I do" to Chelsea, he needed a pre-nup. Frankly, I can't believe the subject hadn't come up before. It must by the liquor that's made Charlie so slow on the uptake. Doesn't he realize he could lose the beach house and half that Charlie Waffles dough to Chelsea if he doesn't keep it in his pants as a married man?
Discovering that Chelsea is the proud landlady of three Southern California apartment buildings -- not units, buildings! -- was enough to make Charlie doubt their entire relationship. It no longer was about a prenup, it was about why Chelsea was with him. If she didn't want Charlie for his wealth, why was she marrying him? Maybe she really is nuts because Charlie can't fathom any other reason. I would have sworn he would have assumed it was his prowess in bed, but he didn't go there.
