Growing up my biggest role models were definitely my parents. Debatable or not parents have the greatest influence on their child’s decisions and aspirations. My mother and father did whatever they could to provide for us and were extremely hard workers. Although my siblings and I didn’t like it at the time, my parents made sure we completed our homework, went to school everyday, set goals and went after them. They created respectable, dependable, hardworking and highly educated, contributing members of society.
In Two And a Half Men, although Alan is Jake’s biological father, the viewer finds Jake looking up to and adopting the characteristics of his uncle Charlie. In the show, Charlie is more of the easy going “Malibu Bachelor” and he’s constantly drinking, womanizing, gambling, and smoking cigars. He essentially lives a life full of debauchery and Jake, who is now an impressionable teenager, doesn’t realize Alan is the better role model. The character contrast of the uptight brother and the laid back, rule breaking bachelor does, however, make for a very comedic show. This odd couple are the largest influences in Jake’s life and whether Charlie is his father or not, he is still seen as a parental figure to Jake.
In the upcoming season, it will be interesting to see the twists and turns of story line without Charlie Sheen. Tune in with “First Class Fashionista” to watch the season premiere of Two and A Half Man on CBS September 19, 2011–With Ashton Kutcher!
