The show without Charlie just does not work. Ashton does not have the comedy acting skills to spar and banter with the other characters (who are excellent). Maybe that's why he relies on getting his kit off all the time.
Such a shame it went wrong with Charlie Sheen, he might have his faults but he was excellent in that show. Maybe he can do something completely diffent with 'Alan' in the future - those two are comedy gold.
I have to agree with Suzanne about Kutcher. He is the same as he was on the 70s show. Why did they make Kutcher be such a goofball? Why couldn't they just make him a womanizer similar to Charlie? I think they were in too much of a hurry to throw something in Sheen's face and it cost them. Have to say I love Jon Cryer and Jake (so sorry can't think of his real name), in the show. I hope writers realize it's not too late to make the show better. I fear if it goes on this way it may not make another season.
Mental illness is a real thing! Nervous breakdowns are a real thing! A sense of humor is a “real thing”! Get over it! [sit-com]- situation comedy.
Speaking for someone who has been diagnosed with mental illness I found this show to be degrading and insensitive. Mental illness is not a laughing matter and making fun of it is concerning. I was highly offended and turned your program off and will not watch it going forward.
the eighth season was evidently the last. without charlie, the show stinks. maybe cbs deserves credit for allowing lorre to air his laundry on prime time.
the writing has been horrible and so are the ethics of cryer and the other main characters. too bad, but, there still are reruns - thank god.
Speaking of “sucks”, I never had to give a truck driver a “happy ending” for a free ride anywhere! EVEN IN MY DREAMS. I like Cryer and think he is an excellent supporting actor. Nonetheless, I beginning to lose respect for him for letting the writers have their way with him, unless of course he likes the idea. In this case as Jerry Seinfeld said; “not that there’s anything wrong with that”! lol.
I thought this episode sank to new depths of cruelty and mean-spiritedness. I, too, figured out it was a dream way before the end (the clincher, frankly, was the sexy woman showing up at the storage room and coming on to Alan though I had my suspicions earlier). Misogynist humor was always a staple, but a constant barrage of mental health jokes (including a failed suicide sketch), Evelyn's asinine Chinese accent, and the general glee in mock-destroyign someone's life was just lame and unfunny.
Kutcher has to struggle to rise to the level of one-dimensionality. He is essentially playing the same character he did on That 70s Show, only older and rich. BORING. I also don't understand what is supposed to make him so attractive. He has a nice body, but is skeavy looking otherwise. Pass.
This show needs to go. It's time to admit that there is no way to keep it going with the premise so changed.
I think Joh Cryer is really carrying the show at this point, has actually all along, as well as the kid, love him and have loved watching him grow up. I agree with Sarah Beatty's comment that Jon Cryer has unending talent! I'm giving away my age here, but if they revived the Andy Griffith show, I think Joh Cryer would make the ultimate BARNEY FIFE. Any others out there that think the same?
Like some of the others that have left comments dealing charlie isnt coming back get over it. they are right hes never coming back to this show so get over it already.
As far as I am concerned, the show met it's demise when Charlie did! Aston Kutcher is terrible! The whole chemistry of the show's actors and storyline is out if sync and just plain goofy! AK looks acts goofy, he's unkempt and sloppy. His wardrobe leaves much to ne desired.
Thank you for thus opportunity to vent my frustration with the new show!
Cryer could never carry the show,he's just the but of everyone elses jokes!
While Two and a Half will never be the same without Charlie, I'll say what I've said all along, Jon Cryer has unending TALENT and can definitely carry a show by himself. Ashton's holding his own in his typecast. He's really just a dot.com version of his That 70's character. But he's had some good moments like when he got high with Berta. That was funny. Berta also is a great talent. The show has had its moments, but there still remains a rather big hole without Charlie. But I will always be an unwavering Jon Cryer fan.
STOP WATCHING THE SHOW IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE ACTORS,CHARLIE IS GONE AND YOUR ANNOYING AND WHINING COMMENTS ARE GETTING REALLY OLD!!! As Beverly said-go watch the re runs!!
No point in bad mouthing Kutcher, it's the writers that define him and the directors that point his way. This is their plan, so live with it.
This was my favorite show. Now, it just is a plain disappointing. I donot like the new direction. How much worse can this show get? It seems to get worse every week. I've been watching "Modern Family". I think I will give it a shot. Also stick to Two & a half men reruns. At least Charlie is on all of those. Thank god for reruns.
Alan was great in last nights episode but Ashton needs to go. He adds nothing to the show. He is not funny or likeable at all. Don't know why Demi thinks he is a prize.
As a true Two and a Half Men fan, this episode was better. but still falls very short of what the series used to be. Ashton just doesn`t fit into the vibe of the show, and his character is just really stupid. it brings the whole story line down, an makes it unrealistic and ridiculous.
If they can have Allen live threw this dream sequence, it would be so amazing to bring Charlie back , as if it was all a dream as well.
It is Hollywood after all, and anything is possible-
Please bring Charlie Sheen back and save what once was an amazing show- the best ever on TV!!!!
The new show without Charlie just doesn`t cut it- read all the reviews week after week- The TV viewing pubic want Charlie Back!!!!! PLEASE BRING CHARLIE BACK!!!!!!!
Ok Charlie fans, please hes gone, i loved Charlie too but hes no longer in the show, If you miss him that much watch the re runs.. This is a new show and Crier has taken on the lead,, it is funny you have to admit it.. its the whole cast that makes this show....
Last night show sucks right in the beginning. It should of end right after CBS let go of Charlie. This so call TWO AND A HALF MEN speaks for itself, TWO BAD ACTORS AND A HALF MEN WITH A BAD SCRIPT. CBS just burn the set it look like Ashton other home. Bad taste in remodeling the set. I have another idea CBS just show CSI MIAMI and believe me your ratings will be great. You have this wanna be rich Jesus look alike with bad acting. He can't act his script ,he's not funny. That fake background laugh, "REALLY CBS" WOW!!!!!! Again I said it before I'll say it again. Ashton makes TWO AND A HALF MEN A B SHOW AND MAKES A B MOVIE A OSCAR AWARD.
This was the first episode of the season that made me laugh, and more than once, I might add. But Ashton is definitely not the main character, and never will fit in to the family. Berta is family!
I think that a good script would be if Jake somehow finds, inherits, or wins money and buys Ashton's house, which forces Allen to live with Jake. In this way, Allen never owns the house, he is just a continual guest. Then Jake can kick Ashton to the curb. After all, Asthon can afford to buy another house that Allens Mom will sell him.
I am so sick of the "Sheen" fans and their ever loving writing of criticism. Don't watch the show. Charlie ain't coming back! Get over it! This is what it's going to be from now on and if you don't like, don't watch and please, please, please, don't write anything on here about wanting Sheen back. It ain't happening!
This was a better episode and they seem to be finding their way a little bit. I hope they continue to find their rythymn as time goes on.
Second solid episode in a row. It's getting tough to stay a hater but if they can continue to strike the right balance between Cryer et al and Kutcher, then there may some life left in the show. Time will tell
I liked this episode, the first one this year. I think it's because the show was about Alan, Jake, Judith, not just about how everyone "loves" Walden. Be quite Walden, don't talk.
I have to say, last night's episode was great. Jon Cryer was fantastic. I couldn't stop laughing. I was also glad to see some of the regulars in the show. When is Rose going to appear again? I was happy to see Judith and Herb were in it, too. Berta was also great. Walden is a waste of space. He needs to be replaced.
I feel very bad that this show is so terrible. I really enjoyed the show before and now I keep watching it, hoping it gets better. If the truth be known this same reason is why many people are watching. Charlie Sheen screwed up and he admitted it. Now it is time for the producers to say the same thing. Charlie needs to come back on the show.
