Tutu takes tea with the Queen Mother of the Bafokeng and Vampires wait in the hospital waiting room

2011-02-14 00:00

SEASON five of Two And A Half Men gets underway on SABC3 at 7.30 pm on Tuesday.

This comedy sitcom centres on the lives of two very different brothers — straight-laced Alan (Jon Cryer) and care-free Charlie (Charlie Sheen), a well-to-do bachelor with a house at the beach, a Jaguar in the front, and an easy way with women.

Charlie’s casual Malibu lifestyle is interrupted when Alan and his son Jake come to live with him. Their relationship is further frustrated by the fact that Alan is trying to raise his young son and doesn’t want his brother acting as a bad influence.

Season five opens with Jake gearing up for his first day of Junior High School. Alan and Charlie try to help him prepare for the special day, but their good intentions are marred when they end up potentially traumatising him.
