Two and a Half Men: The Complete Seventh Season

Two and a Half Men: The Complete Seventh Season
In the first episode of the seventh season, Charlie (Charlie Sheen) is put to the fidelity test when old girlfriend Mia (Emmanuelle Vaugier) shows up wanting help recording some songs. Already anxious about his recent engagement to girlfriend Chelsea (Jennifer Taylor), he becomes constipated, spending most of the episode talking about giving anal birth and naming his impending poo after his brother, Alan (Jon Cryer). In fact, I would say that more energy is expended in this episode dealing with Charlie's pained poo-face, holding his stomach and blowing off comments from Jane Lynch about getting a C-section than the actual relationship conflict centre. Two episodes later, Alan takes a job working in real estate for his mother, Evelyn (Holland Taylor). While working at an open house, he asks to use the washroom. His mother tells him to hold it, pointing out that the smell of poo doesn't help sell a house. Ten seconds later, he farts loudly in front of two potential buyers; it's almost as clever a gag as the one where Evelyn discusses fornicating with an entire team of circus performers and having to pull sequins out of her "hoo-hoo" as a result. Essentially, this entire season of Two and a Half Men has more to do with poo and vaginas than anything else. Occasionally, they'll make a joke about a "wiener" or creepily allude to incestuous homosexuality between the brothers, but for the most part, it's farts, drinking and disturbing shots of the lead actors in tighty-whities. To be fair, I did laugh when Charlie projectile vomited on a stranger's baby in a coffee shop. Included with the 22-episode DVD set is a gag reel with actors flubbing their lines and swearing, along with an awkward interview segment with the many actresses that have played Charlie's girlfriend throughout the seven seasons.
