An ad by the South Australian Tourism Commission to promote Kangaroo Island has resulted in an increase in searches for the destination on South Australia’s tourism website.

Two weeks after ‘Let yourself go’ launched on 22 February, searches for Kangaroo Island on had increased by 208 per cent, the Satc told Mumbrella. However, it did not disclose what the actual number of searches was.

John Baker, managing partner of Kwp! Advertising, the Adelaide agency that made the ad, has called it “probably the most beautiful thing we’ve ever created.”

Two and a Half Men Review: "Warning, it's Dirty"

  • TVfanatic
It was Christmas Eve at the Harper household, and in typical Two and a Half Men fashion, we were just waiting for things to fall apart.  At the beginning of the episode, things actually seemed like they were going well.

Alan was preparing a nice feast, Evelyn headed over with a prospective client, and Berta was even staying over as a guest.  How could it go wrong?  That's when Charlie decided to take Jake under his wing and encourage him to cheat on Celeste.

You can find out exactly what happened in our recap of "Warning, it's Dirty."  We're just here to give you a review on what we though worked and what didn't:

We love Carl Reiner and appreciate all his meta jokes as Marty Pepper, a fictional television producer, however, he just wasn't given good enough material. Berta betting her bonus double or nothing, losing, and then Charlie giving her back the money?

Review: Two and a Half Men - Warning. It's Dirty.

  • Aol TV.
(S07E11) The holidays are a time for family and reflection and cheer. Unless you're the Harper family and gathering in Malibu becomes a test to see who can screw up each others' life more.

Was it the ultimate inside joke that everything passing before Marty's eyes was fodder for a TV show? Yes, I think so. At the end of the show, the final credit was "A Marty Pepper Production."

Two and a Half Men Preview: "Warning, it's Dirty"

  • TVfanatic
Christmas is just around the corner and that can only mean one thing... it's time for all the Holiday themed sitcoms!  This week we were already treated to a Christmas on Modern Family.

This upcoming Monday we'll be joining the Harper family as they celebrate Christmas in a way only Charlie and Alan can.  In traditional Two and a Half Men fashion, lots of odd balls will show up to the festival including a television producer, Marty Pepper played by Carl Reiner, brought to the festivites by Evelyn.

Our favorite member of the Two and a Half Men cast, Berta, will be attending as well, but not as a maid.  Berta will sit back and relax with Charlie while poor Alan does all the work.

Meanwhile, Jake's girlfriend, Celeste, will be going out of town for the holidays, and our favorite awkward teenager consults his Uncle Charlie for some advice
