Bottom line - the show is not funny and the Walden Schmidt character is a whiny, mopey boat anchor dragging everyone else down. If this does not change immediately, the soon-to-be post-mortem assessments will ponder how the writers could have gotten it so wrong.
Chuck Lorre wanted to get back at Charlie so bad he missed up the plot. Its obvious he let his personal feelings interfare with the plot. Chuck wants revenge on comments Charlie made about him and the show. Chuck Lorre you suck!
Kutcher sucks. I kept waiting for him to say, "Mama says,'stupid is as stupid does'". And the way he always looks like he's trying not to laugh during a supposedly funny scene---really, how amiturish! I always felt the show could survive without Charlie because Alan is the real comedy leader there, but Kutcher is definitely a poison pill. If the producers have any hopes of making it through the end of this season, they should seriously consider some quick damage control. Buy Kutcher out of his contract, and the sooner the better.
The 2.5men storyline sucks!! It was painful to watch 9.1+2... kinda like watching somebody repeatedly drive over your beloved pet rabbit... In a way the behavior of the producer's of TAAHM is far more unprofessional than Charlie's outbursts earlier this year. They're trying to insult Sheen by making all the characters hate Charlie Harper who is the soul and heart of 8 years of telling the story of 2.5 men. Doing that is childish & disrespectful to the fans (who are the life-blood of this series)!!
Very sad... rather pathetic... what a shame... The 2.5men house is cold & empty without Charlie!!
The cast is acting totally out of their usual character! For 8 years Uncle Charlie was portrayed as the slick, womanizing, lucky, smart, funny, macho with a soft side & a conscience, a successful millionaire musician/jingle writer who despite all the craziness of his life-style always loved his brother Alan, his nephew - even his mum to a degree... and they loved him back!! Somehow
Thank you very much CBS and Chuck Lorre!!! For making a Great Show "Two and a Half Men" To STUPID Show!!!!
Ez thinks Ashton is a role model. As if a show about an alcoholic womanizer with a lousy family was supposed to be a morality play... at a 9PM time slot. You should watch ABC Family or Disney and nothing else. Not every show has to have a saintly lead character. That doesn't reflect the real world at all. Lorre is running out of ideas so he needs this show to run longer... increase the syndication profits. Only thing is no one is going to want to buy this FINAL SEASON with Ashton. But they will probably be forced to by contract.
Cryer must be tired of playing the same game over and over again. Someone give this man another show or movie already. I was about to turn off the tele when I saw Judy Greer, purrrrrr. But she played Myra several years ago. Is this a consolation prize for having her recent show cancelled? Or is Hollywood so short on comic actresses that Greer has to be recycled as another character? Seriously, Walden's ex could've been played by a funny lady who needs more exposure.
I think Alan is great as always. The writing for the house keeper is awful. I watched the first show couldn't make it all the way in the second one. Until Charlie comes back I won't be watching it again. Also my daughter in Indiana feels the same way and she used to look forward to this show every week. We both think Kucher is awful his facial looks are always the same. Just don't like him.

it SUCKS! That's all.
I was never a big fan of Two and Half Men because of the character Charlie Sheen portrayed (an alcoholic and a user of women) a reflection of his true self as a person outside his job, therefore, I never respected him. But with him gone, I am giving THM a chance, and I like it. Ashton Kutcher is a better role model and funny to boot, and a better person outside his job. I wish continued success to Chuck Lorre and company in making this show fun to watch.
People are SO ridiculous, How is Charlie Sheen "winnning" the shows ratings opened to double what last seasons show did. Ashton's character is not dumb, he is naive because he is used to someone taking care of him. I think the show is just trying to tie the lose ends. OMG are you kidding that whole Berta thing was SOO funny, you have no sense of humor to find that disgusting. People don't have to watch this show, I think there are enough people that will watch it that the show will be fine.
A short note to Chuck Lorre - your show has become a disgrace and I will be surprised if it lasts the season in it's current format, with the current cast and advertisers. For the second week in a row, I couldn't watch the entire show - I guess I'm not too interested in "peepholes, baby shampoo and AK's favorite brand of toilet paper" - give me a break!! Did the good writers walk out with Charlie? Without Charlie, I expected the show would take a different direction - I never thought that would be straight into the crapper!! Charlie is no longer WINNING, he's already WON!
Chuck Lorre #Losing .. Charlie Sheen #WINNING
I think the new show is really funny. Keep up the good work. Once people get used to the idea Charlie is no more then Ashton will grow on them. I know how upset I was when they took Frasier off and I'm still sick about that after all this time, however Hollywood no longer cares what we like so we just have to adapt to what they want us to watch. It's either this or more stupid reality shows that aren't even reality, game shows or talk shows. Geezzzz how many more of those can the networks come up with.
There was no way to replace Sheen, whose dysfunction was the main story leverage, and these two episodes prove it. Time to sell commercial time with some other 20 minute network sitcom distraction
Part one was semi-exciting BUT part two fell flat and exposed the writers/understudies lack of direction. The phony laugh track was cheesy & since when does Berta keep her thoughts to herself? If Charlie Sheen plays his cards right, he could make a spectacular come-back both personally and ratings wise. Robert Downey Jr. did it!
I was sickened by the dirty old maid, "Berta." She kept making lewd comments while "thinking" out load about her nasty desires (yuk!), and lusting over AK's character... How disgusting! The episode might have been funny, if not for the fat old woman's disgusting and perverted remarks!
Two and a half men is dead to me as dead as they made Charlie. Best of luck to all the old cast.
The new 2.5 men sucks, AK is the worst! And what a stupid part he is attempting to play, a millionaire dumb guy. How un-funny and boring could this possibly be. It's obvious to me that some of the writers must have gotten the boot to. Good luck Chuck on your next adventure cause you killed 2.5 men.
Been a fan since the beginning and still positive the show can be a smash.....but not with AK. Did they write the show for a new character or just transplant him from That 70's show? The character is pathetic and idiotic! I understand they had considered Stamos for the part. After his 60 second cameo, THAT'S the writing and character that should have replaced Sheen! Until they kick Kutcher to the curb, I'm all done.
This show is absolutely atrocious now. I understand there are many sitcoms that are not necessarily laugh out loud funny, but this one is no longer even mildly amusing. It is unwatchable. I suspected that AK was a bad choice to replace Charlie Sheen, and the facts seem to support my suspicions. AK fit in "That 70s Show," but he just does not work in this one. And, it is not just the absence of Sheen, the writing itself seems to have taken about three steps back. The old show was often funny even when Sheen was not on camera. This version is empty drivel regardless who is on screen. Even Judy Greer, who I generally like very much, seemed stiff and out of place in this latest episode. And what is up with the repeated naked scenes with AK? Are the producers trying to pull in more of a female audience here? Here's an idea: Why not actually write a funny script and maybe you can get away with a questionable cast.
I left the show a long time ago. I decided to check it out now that Charlie's gone. I figured I'd wait for at least two episodes before deciding whether I like the new show or not. The verdict? They got me back. I love it. I can't wait to see what's next. Great job on the new character and hiring Ashton to play him. It feels like there's going to be a lot more room for the antics of the other characters (e.g. Alan). Turns out my teenage (High School & College) daughters love it too (now). Surprise Surprise. Seriously. Thanks to the producers for keeping it afloat and the writers for keeping it alive.
i preferred judy greer when she played herb's sister myra.
some of you peopele need to get over charlie. he is never going to be back on there. he fucked up. If you don't like the damn show then stop watching it and stop fucking complaining. and the people that post shit and pretend they are astons wife needs to stop.
Dreadful. I didn't laugh until Walden and Alan woke up naked on the porch, and that was 25 minutes into the show. Judy Greer is wasted as the stodgy ex-wife who wants Walden to grow up. Bridget is the kind of role that forces an actress to be either a bitch, a drip, or, God help us, the voice of reason. As Myra, the first woman Charlie ever responded to as a human being, Greer had a great sense of fun and some very good lines: I'm afaid she won't have much of either this time around.
Now that Alan is the sole surviving child, he's got nobody to complain about his mother to. The only times he and Charlie ever really bonded were when they were dealing with Evelyn, because they were facing a common enemy. With Charlie's departure that whole dynamic has been lost, and I don't see anything replacing it.
Bring back Charlie, or bag it.
