Essay: Derivation of Humor from the Social Aspects
Two and a Half Men derive humor from the social aspects revolving around the lives of two brothers, a son and those related to them. The main character is seen to objectify women.
He sees them as objects from which he can derive pleasure. In fact, the theme song of the show is symbolic of men’s tendency to feel superior over women, solidifying the stereotypes revolving around gender (Luft, 2009). The main character cannot even maintain a decent long-term relationship with the women he comes across, despite the fact that his age is still progressing. Despite his love for women, the main character in Two and a Half Men has never gotten married.
