Two and a Half Men is an American television sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn which centres around a bachelor, Charlie, whose carefree lifestyle is interrupted when his newly-separated brother Alan moves in, with his son Jake.
Two and a Half Men is a comedy about men, women, sex, dating, divorce, mothers, single parenthood, sibling relations, surrogate families, 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 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, and Alan's son, Jake, come to stay with him.
Complicating matters further are Charlie and Alan's narcissistic, emotionally- toxic mother, Evelyn; Alan's deeply neurotic ex-wife, Judith; Charlie's domineering, unapologetically blue-collar housekeeper, Berta; and Charlie's stalker-neighbour Rose, whom he once had a fling with.
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.
Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) is a lovelorn Internet billionaire with an innocence born out of his lifelong dependence on others to take care of him.
After a failed attempt to drown himself in the ocean after his wife kicked him out, a suicidal Walden stumbles into a Malibu beach house, where tightly-wound, twice-divorced chiropractor Alan Harper and his underachieving teenage son, Jake, had been living with Alan's now-deceased brother for the past eight years.
With no place to go, Walden buys the house and invites Alan to remain there, saving Alan from having to move in with his narcissistic, emotionally toxic mother, Evelyn.
Walden asks Berta, a domineering, unapologetically blue-collar housekeeper who has been working in the household, to stay as well.
Despite his unsuccessful history with women, Alan unexpectedly finds himself mentoring Walden, who has severely limited dating experience.
