‘Two and a Half Men’ season 10, episode 15 review: Jaime Pressly steals the showby February 8, 2013
“Two and a Half Men” may not be the funniest show on the air, but they have done a pretty fantastic job this year of casting female guest stars. Miley Cyrus was thoroughly entertaining for two episodes as Missi, and Brooke D’Orsay was so good as Paige that she almost made us want to petition to have her on board here more so than on “Royal Pains.”
On Thursday night, the show upped the ante yet again with a guest appearance from “My Name Is Earl” alum Jaime Pressly, who played a role that was very different than Joy: Jake’s new girlfriend Tammy was the owner of a tattoo shop and she on the surface looked pretty rough, but underneath the surface she was actually a pretty smart and caring person. However, Alan immediately started to judge her based on the person that she was on the surface, and not on the inside.
Of course, the writers didn’t just make this some warm and fuzzy story. Alan did learn to accept Jake’s new relationship, but it’s probably not going to last anyway since Tammy seems to just be enjoying it for the time being. The best thing about the episode was that Pressly meshed so well with the cast right away, and she brought an interesting new perspective to the family. Oh, and the other thing? That there was a line put in here specifically designed to bash Angus T. Jones for publicly calling the show “filth” in his first episode since that scandal erupted.
