Two and a Half Men > Two and a Half Men Review: "One False Move, Zimbabwe!" > Comments Page 2
I'm sure Charlie is somewhere laughing his ass off, while writing checks for the writers who're killing the show for him. Thanks Charlie. Love you man.
This show is history as far as I'm concerned. Ashton Kutcher does not appeal to me at all -- his comedy is silly and juvenile instead of sarcastic and racey, which is what the whole show was about before. And what happened to Judith & Herb? Alan should have inherited the house; Judith & Herb could have gotten divorced and then Herb move in with Alan to help him with expenses. Herb and Alan would have been great together. Ashton is just not in the same category of humor.
The show that everyone loved...is gone. Admit it, we all know that this show will not last. It's not even the same show. If they want to keep the cast and storyline (term used lightly) they should re-name it and then continue. Jake is not even a "Half" anymore anyway. This new show is going in a totally different direction. We will always compare it to the original, and it will not measure up.
Is anyone else not fooled by Waldens ex as a previous character? Are there no other actresses out there that could have played this role? She was Herb's sister during his wedding with Judith. Really?
Bring Kandi back at least.
Horrible! The show is going down. The characters
are so pathetic. The worst thing that happened
To this show was Charlie's departure.
Not interested in watching the show anymore.
I was skeptical about Walden at the beginning, but now I just love him ;) Charlie was awesome, but Walden is also terrific. They are just different. I agree it's too much of him now, but I bet it's just now because he's new.
And this episode totally sucks.
And Ashton is unbelievable sexy.
I'm 17 years old and have been a fan of the show for years now. i have to admit that when Charlie left and i heard Ashton was going to be the new star of the show, i was reluctant to watch it as i feared it just wouldn't be the same. and i was right! in my eyes, its a different show completely, but that doesn't mean its 'bad'. i actually think the new episodes are alright but i do understand why most people are finding it hard to adjust. the problem is all those people who seem to be in love with charlie sheen. he's gone. he's not coming back. live with it. saying that, i do think when it comes to the characters, the butter should be spread more evenly, we are seeing too much of Kutcher and not enough of the characters that really make the show what it is. i would actually love to see more of Jake and Eldritch as their relationship is really funny! Two and a half men will continue as long as the writers remember that it's not 'The Ashton Kutcher show'. well, thats my rant over :) merry
Someone needs to take the crayon away from the 8 year old who is writing this season! Are they really paying Jake, Evelyn, and Berta for being on the show? They are rarely in a scene! Focusing on the Ashton character only appeals to fourth or fifth graders (like IQs).
Just watched this episode the other night and wondered who thought this mindless drivel was funny. Kutcher just hasn't got it, he only has the one facial expression ,just looking at the faces Charlie Sheen pulled was as good as a joke. Without wishing to get repetitive get Charlie Sheen Back or call it a day. Along with another reviewer I will continue to watch repeats of the shows with Sheen in but won't bother with this rubbish it's an insult to a once very funny show. TWO AND A HALF MEN R.I.P.
i agree, total insult of intelligence. A gorilla??? Kutcher also sucks but that's not all.
Hi from the UK. I loved Two & a Half Men throughout its lifetime and whilst I've tried desperately hard to like the new style, I just can't take to it. It's not Ashton or any of the other characters, its the writing which seems to have gone so lame and crude to the extent its not funny, unlike previously when the balance was about right. There is still mileage in interaction with Jake's natural stupidity despite him approaching adulthood whilst the lack of regular input from Evelyn, Berta, Lyndsey and Judith is sorely missed. The gorilla episode was just cringeworthy.
Rather like a champion heavyweight boxer who is attempting a comeback when his best years are behind him, please retire the show off before it sinks any lower and a true legend becomes tainted. Frasier ended at just the right time as the characters had run their natural course and the programme was still adored.
By the way, speaking from an englishman perspective, Zoe is one awful actress and her accent ju
Anybody who thinks this episode was anyway funny must be simple in the head ! Ridiculous, as we say in irish: pog mo hon, kiss my arse! Love and miss you Charlie Harper (Sheen)
The best comedy show of the last decade is now so boring and not funny, cannot watch it anymore, it's not only Charlie's huge absence, it's the script that sucks, the whole theme of the show has changed, who the heck is Walden Schmidt? why is he supposed to be funny, even the previously funny characters are not funny anymore ... wild guess: this is the last season of this show ...
I've always said that the show should just have gotten someone else to play Charlie -- it was done successfully on BEWITCHED and on ROSEANNE -- but I was willing to give it a chance.
I'm not a fan of AK at all but I think the real problem with the new season is the WRITING. Where are Herb, Berta, Jake and Evelyn? Why has Alan turned into such an unlikable dirty old man? Why did so much have to change just because the main character changed?
If the writing and characters on this show had been like this in the beginning, the show never would have lasted more than one season. It's merely resting on its laurels this season and that wont last long.
I liked last episode a lot but this one not so much. The storyline about the gorilla brother wasn't very funny and the episode depended too much on this theme. And when someone like Mimi Rogers showed up in a show like Two And A Half Men I had hoped that the plot had been more sexual. Not even cleavage :-( Yeah I know, she's pretty old but still hot.
I have nothing against the "Sheenless" show, but this episode was dull, boring, had dumb (and not funny/interesting) story, and didn't make too much sense.
I hope it improves.
since everyone is being so critical about how they don't like the show, i'd like to point out one observation and you can say what you want, it's just an opinion. their ratings are at their highest. tv shows are like radio stations, they play what you like while you're listening but as you get older, the radio station changes to appeal others in greater markets. it may seem that the AK market and all his followers since That 70's Show might outnumber CS's market. so, of course the writers are going to change it up a little. i see a little Kelso coming out in Walden. those that are old enough to understand Sheen and young enough to understand Kutcher seem to be the one's on the fence (i know i'm generalizing). but my point is, that those that were too old for That 70's Show, probably aren't going to connect with Kutcher (i'm sure there might be a small debate for the outliers, especially those attracted to him). More importantly, those too young for Sheen are probably the ones b
I laughed once during this episode; when Eldridge called his mom. I kept wondering why everyone was so nice. Even Berta is nice (well, nicer). With so many nice people around him Alan is just bitter and lonely. Where is his stubborn grasp on askewed optimism? This is not Two and a Half Men anymore. Its an entirely different show and not a very good one at that. I don't even TiVo it if I'm not going to be home.
This one was awful.
When the show started this year, I did not think it would survive without Sheen. I found the first few episodes pretty lame. However, The last few episodes have been pretty good, and I have been pulled into the new plot line with Waldon.
BUT...what happened this week? The gorilla episode was so NOT what I would expect from Two and a Half Men. I felt like I was watching an episode from Chris Elliot's old show "Get a Life."
I can't imagine what the writers were thinking. I hope that this was an anomaly and that Two and a Half Men didn't just Jump the Shark!
I actually cringed watching this episode. It is just too stupid for words, but I'll give it a try. Is this the character development that we can expect from the writers regarding Walden? It seems like they are not taking the character very seriously at all. I can't think of any show worth its salt that had a character development whereby the main character grew up with a gorilla? I mean, how stupid can you get. Sure, the rediculousness of the whole thing is sort of funny once you jump on board the reality suspension wagon. This may have worked well for a show like Seinfeld, but 2 1/2 men doesn't have a strong comedic ensemble like Seinfeld did. That said, this whole season would be a perfect "dream sequence" for Alan should Sheen ever be brought back to the show. Otherwise, milk it baby, milk it for every dime boys while you crank out more crap and run the show into the ground.
stupid, stupid, stubid
This whole season has been a tremendous disappointment. My wife and I loved it until Kutcher replaced Sheen. Don't get me wrong, we think Sheen is an ass and deserved to be fired but the story lines are really pathetic and Kutcher is a terrible actor. We keep giving it another chance but enough is enough!
Sorry, folks....the gorilla episode was pure crap. It's all downhill from here.
Hey Joe....that was bugging me too...was able to find out it was Jane Carr, she was on an 80s sitcom Dear John.
i've been on the fence about this season for past episodes. i would sit and watch the show and notice i don't laugh as much but there are funny parts. the gorilla episode was funny. it had a good feel from the start and was hilarious at the end. zoey's interesting and her parents are awesome. can't wait for the parents to meet evelyn. hopefully the sob stuff is over with. the bedroom scene at the beginning was funny too. i like that they are transitioning between groups more often so it doesn't drag like the sobby episodes.
