Given that “Two and a Half Men” is a show that has been around for as long as it has, it’s a little bit of a stunner to see that a story about Berta quitting hasn’t been done before … oh wait. It has. Go back to the very early days of the show, and you can see a first-season episode about something pretty similar.
But the difference between that episode and where we are now is pretty simple, as Alan and Walden this week are actually going so far as interviewing new people for the job. They are going to get quite the mixture of characters coming in, and some of them are going to be a little crazy. Meanwhile, some others are going to be pretty violent. The thing that we’re getting at here is that there is really not going to be too much of a replacement at all for Berta that actually meets the criteria that these two are looking for.
What we are more curious about at the moment is why in the world would Berta want to quit what is a pretty sweet gig? She’s managed to get herself quite an impressive job here, with a good salary, employers who like her, and a guy in Walden that she can crush on. The only thing that we can think of is that Jenny drives her up the wall, but she is spending more of her time living somewhere else for the time being.
Anyhow, we have to remember that this has never really been a show about logic in the first place. Just come back tomorrow for a full review of the episode, and you can read about some other plotlines that are coming up on “Two and a Half Men” just by visiting the story here.
