'Two and a Half Men: The Complete Eighth Season'


If this set from the CBS sitcom seems to have fewer episodes than usual, the reason became widely known last winter ... the impasse reached between Charlie Sheen and executive producer Chuck Lorre.

What's here amounts to Sheen's final round as Charlie Harper, the Lothario who's surprised to find the tables turned when he falls for the ex-neighbor he rejected countless times, Rose (Melanie Lynskey). Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones - both of whom will continue with the series, joined by Ashton Kutcher - also star, and returning guests include Courtney Thorne-Smith, Jane Lynch and Jenny McCarthy. *** (Not rated: AS, P)
