Critic Reviews for Two and a Half Men Season 5

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Only moderately successful, but did work as a goof on such time-worn CSI tropes.

Exhibited a cheeky charm.

Top Critic

"Fish in a Drawer" features the obvious sort of pandering that crossovers so often indulge in.

Very funny.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It has really blossomed into its own beast for the fifth season. Possibly one of the dirtiest shows on television with some smart writing that gets it past the censors, Two and a Half Men has really grown to be a funny, funny show.

Audience Reviews for Two and a Half Men: Season 5

  • Sep 17, 2019
    More experimental storylines than previous seasons elevate some of the tired humor Two and a Half Men has grown accustomed too. Nevertheless, it's still got plenty of humor.
  • Apr 26, 2019
    (all seasons) You can tell by watching Season 1 why this was a hit: a catchy premise, great cast and snappy dialogue contributing to a very enjoyable laugh-fest characterized by remarkable consistency. Even more remarkably, the above goes on for a whopping 8 seasons. Yet, things take an unfortunate turn for the worse after that, ranging - occasional refreshing glimpses aside - from the average yet watchable to the completely formulaic and below-par, and culminating with the ill-advised "meta" finale. Winning?
  • Dec 10, 2013
    Although its not on the same level as Season 4 in terms of storytelling, Season 5 is a relatively humorous collection of episodes that will serve the show relatively well.
