This week's episode of Two and a Half Men
was quite frankly revolting. The writers achieved a new low as the show pushed
the very limits of decency. With crude and vulgar innuendo plainly addressing
promiscuous sex, sex addiction, sex toys, oral sex, male anal stimulation, and
female pubic hair, this episode is the clear pick for Worst of the Week.
The show opens with Lydia, Charlie's girlfriend,
waking him up badly hung over. She is angry because after she performed oral
sex on him the previous night, he fell asleep while "reciprocating." Charlie
then realizes why he dreamt about kissing Abraham Lincoln. Charlie follows her
to the bathroom where, in the shower, she asks him to finish what he started the
night before. Charlie looks at her genital region and begins to recite the
Gettysburg address. Good luck to a parent who has to explain that joke to a
curious child at 9 o'clock.
Alan, Charlie's brother, must convince his
ex-wife that they must sell their condo because Alan can't afford it on his
own. Each time he tries she seduces him into sex and distracts him from his
responsibility. The first time she simply asks him to shower with her and have
sex, the second time she crawls around on the floor seductively for and extended
period of time, and the third time she tells him she's only wearing high heels
and cool whip.
Other crude content in the episode included a
running joke between Charlie and Lydia about how well she can please him with
her finger. They constantly motion to each other by making a swirling motion
with their fingers. It is implied that she gives him anal stimulation with the
finger. The two also reference the household objects they used as sex toys –
Charlie was nice enough to warn Alan not to lick his hairbrush.
Language such as "jackass," "son of a bitch,"
and "skank," were also featured in this episode, further making it unsuitable
for family viewing.
CBS and the writers of Two and a Half Men
have really gone too far with this episode. The content in the episode is
suited for late night cable television at best. Due to its utter disregard for
family viewers through highly sexual and crude innuendo, Two and a Half Men
is our pick for Worst of the Week.
