Summary of Season 2 (2004) - 4 discs

In the second season of this hit comedy, two very different brothers, Alan (Jon Cryer) and Charlie (Charlie Sheen), finally learn what it means to get along -- almost. Of course, all bets are off when Charlie is mentoring Jake (Angus T. Jones) in the ways of the world or blindly making his dating life top priority, not to mention when Alan attempts to resuscitate his flailing love life. Conchata Ferrell and Holland Taylor earned Emmy nods for their supporting roles.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this adult-oriented comedy pins most of its jokes on references to alcohol and sex. One character's promiscuous behavior (and his ongoing problem with alcohol) is played for laughs, and episodes have implied oral sex, masturbation, etc. Characters also use words like "assface," "peckerhead," "bitch," etc. Female role models are scarce, and most women are portrayed as controlling, confused, or desperate. There are also jokes about a woman questioning her sexual orientation and a running gag about a single woman being a stalker. One of the characters is a boy coming into adulthood. Star of the first eight seasons, Charlie Sheen, is often in the news for real-life behavior involving violence, drugs, prostitution, and family drama.

Sexual Content

Frequent references to sex by main character, and plenty of sex talk in general (including references to things like bestiality, strippers and hookers). Scenes of men and women kissing and in bed.

Violence

Not applicable

Language

Characters use words like "assface," "peckerhead," "bitch," "fart," etc.

Social Behavior

Although Alan, Charlie, and Jake have become a non-traditional family over time, the brothers' parenting methods are hardly exemplary. Most relationships (between brothers, sons, mothers, girlfriends, etc.) involve some level of dysfunction, and Jake seems to get away with far more than he should.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

In the first eight seasons, Charlie's problems with alcohol are a running joke. He often drinks hard liquor during the day and gets drunk to the point of blackout (and falling off decks, etc.). It's not uncommon to see him sitting at the kitchen table with a bottle of alcohol and a half-full glass.
