Season 3

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 life of two brothers, a son/nephew and the many women who surround them all.

Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen) 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 (Jon Cryer), and Alan's son, Jake (Angus T. Jones), come to stay with him.

Complicating matters further are Charlie's and Alan's narcissistic, emotionally toxic mother, Evelyn (Holland Taylor); Alan's deeply neurotic ex-wife, Judith (Marin Hinkle); Charlie's domineering, unapologetically blue-collar housekeeper, Berta (Conchata Ferrell) and Rose (Melanie Lynskey), a brilliantly manipulative and vaguely crazy neighbour who had a brief fling with Charlie, is obsessed with him, and is determined to stay in his life by whatever means necessary.

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 one of them a better man.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Weekend in Bangkok with Two Olympic Gymnasts": After Alan falls off the roof trying to fix the satellite dish, Charlie volunteers to look after Jake for the weekend.

While Charlie initially looks forward to watching Jake for the weekend, he quickly realises that Jake's idea of fun - going out for fast food and a video game - doesn't quite jive with his own.

Alan finally convinces Charlie that things will be more peaceful if he gives in to Jake.

A power struggle ensues, with Jake initially winning - until he sabotages a potential date for Charlie.

Two and a Half Men is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc., and the Tannenbaum Company, in association with Warner Bros. Television Production Inc.

Chuck Lorre, Lee Aronsohn, Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, Mark Burg and Oren Koules are the executive producers.
