Two and a Half Men > Two and a Half Men Review: Awful Alan > Comments Page 3
Alan used to just be pathetic. Now he is downright venal, and heading for vermin status. This episode was offensive, and I actually like the actors who portray Alan and Walden, usually. This was really not good.
Like I've said before, thank god for reruns & my dvd collection of the original/new series "back in the day!"
Kutcher is pathetic. Period. He's not funny in ANY SHOW in my opinion. I can't stand to watch even a few minutes of it anymore. It's too bad...
Way better off watching the reruns! Walden isn't funny, way too fuckn stupid to be a billionaire, and the writers have made Alan a immoral douchebag! If u have to be obvious to try to get a laugh, then its not funny. Charlie could never be called moral, but they didn't have to write the raunchy and somewhat disgusting material with him to get the laughs. Bad acting, bad writing, just plain bad!
Gets worse every week. Enough is enough. Shut it down already instead of letting it die a slow painful death
The Alan character is horrible and has been on a steady decline for tha last several years. Too weird, too gross, too nasty, too dirty and sleazy but not in the way Charlie was. Although the Charlie character was going downhill the last year also. Same goes for Berta.
Watching re-runs of the earlier years is the way to go. The new ones are no good and a waste of time.
This show is now too painful to watch --- Kutcher bombed whatever else
might have been salvaged from the old Two and a Half - To the writers: if you think you are writing funny lines, you better go back to writing school. Its such a waste of where the great laughs were - with Jake,
Rose, even the old Alan..... their parts seem to have been cut back and
they are trying to make Kutcher look like he can act or be funny.... he
can't..... Charlie was way too perfect for the role --- keeping this up, we all know the show is going to die a slow death..... Wrap it up, Lorre!
geeze there were alot of typos - I meant "Ashton without a shirt".
Why have to decided to make Alan such a scummy person? I mean he was never a moral beckon, but he did have his moments, and they more often than expected, even when he was stealing everyone's money in his own little ponzi scheme he had guilt, but now they are turning him into some mechanical weasel and it's sad. This show still had a lot of potential even with Charlie gone, but it's just painful to watch. You never see Evelyn, or Jake, and barely Berta, and now they are replacing Rose with a new crazy????? I've said it before and I'll say it again, they should just rename the show either "Waldon's World" or "Ashton with a Shirt" because in the end, that's what this show is becoming.
When you view the early reruns of this show you see a mildly attractive Alan with a decent wardrobe and haircut. Yes he was whipped and confused, but he wasn't the pond scum that the writers have created now. Walden (as did Charlie) allow Alan to live in his home rent-free, eat his food, shelter his son and Alan still has to be bribed to do the man a favor. I hope they finally end this series with Walden or someone else finding the guts to throw Alan out on his ear.
I watched about 5 minutes then told my husband "I refuse to watch anymore" and went to the bedroom to watch reruns of "Murder she Wrote" I can't take it anymore. I loved the old Two and Half Men but see nothing in the show to watch now.
This was one of the best shows since all the change. You people that write this need to realize this is not the same old two and a half men and if you can't wrap yourself around it go write some where else. Of course it's different. It's suppose to be. good job everyone that has any involvement in this show!!!!!!!!!
I can not believe enough people watch this garbage that it still shows up on here. It has never been funny and never will be. Join me in watching the news when this is on people.
This show is going down the can. The blatantly obvious comedy (sure, I'll be you're lawyer, I'm screwing you already) and downright filthiness of the jokes (Alan implying he gave himself a BJ with toothpaste) is killing this once great show. I hope they have the courage to take this thing out back and put it out of it's misery. Somewhere Charlie Sheen is loving this.....
It's all well and good to leverage the original cast more but making Alan that much more of a pathetic leech was awkward to watch and very unfunny for some reason.
Someone already said it that a whole season (maybe more) will be needed to get the parts of this mess put together into a consistently tolerable comedy. Right now, we are very much in the experimental kitchen. Last night's concoction tasted off. Try again.
From the TV Guide interview with Chuck Lorre:
"We were all like little kids here back in June, writing the show, trying to create a brand new series starring Ashton Kutcher," Lorre says. "It was fun."
So, that seems to be it. It's not "Cheers" with new bar tender Woody replacing Coach, or a new female lead, Shelley Long's leaving and being replaced by Kirstie Alley. It's a NEW series-like a spin-off.
As for any new series, a whole season may be needed to get things in comedic order.
Honestly, the BEST episode of the new season (aside from the season premiere, which was down right hilarious). Its was nicely paced and i didnt mind the focus on waldens mother and ex0wife. Ashton kutcher was at his almost best in comedy this episode and John cryer was of course rocking it! NOt a bad epsidoe 7.5/10!!
Clients, Dina? Your terrible English tells me it's just a fantasy you have.
This time I really noticed the "audience" laughter.
I think any excuse to give up loyalty to Walden is a good excuse.
Any reason to turn your back on Walden is a good reason.
Frankly speaking the show has run its course why even bother to continue filming. In fact Alan was so funny in the other show and his humor is not shown to its fullest in the remake, Jake needs to be shown more because he is quite capable of making us laugh.I think that Ashton Kutcher was a bad choice for the show. I still watch it though it is just a habit now.
Continued from other comment
As to the changing plotline, giving Alan his name on the deed, presumably as a part-owner and not the sole owner, will change the show dynamics significantly. No longer is he Alan the leech who has to connive to stay in the malibu beach home; his name on the deed gives him that right. Instead, as part-owner, and Alan has never known limits, we will get to see, assuming we watch, what limitless depths of depravity and manipulation he will sink to. NOT. Count me out.
I quit watching a few weeks ago and decided to give one more try. I should have known better. The show and writing is worse than ever. This show had absolutely no redeeming social value and is worse than pornography. I mean, what values would a person learn from this? Women, use sexual favors to get what you want? Men, sell your soul to the highest bidder, and then, sell it again? Eric, you are so right, douchebag alan has slid into despicable alan. No wonder our society is so messed up with programming like this. Now, i am no right winger, and conservative i am not, but this TV show actually had me agreeing with them, just this once.
The show is so bad after Charlie I m telling all my clients to don't even bother to watching , I think they really could find someone better the Alan to replace Charlie or call him back and give the guy another chance. And if you guys don't agree , you can always call me and I will let you know how we can make this show very funny again. Dina from Florida 239 822 6822.
The old members are sorely missed. They were much funnier. I agree, there is too much bathroom humor, much more so than in the past. In this segment, it does appear that Walden seems to be losing his goofiness which is a slight plus and Alan is becoming a little "sicker" with shaving his legs in the bathtub.
The good news is that at the end of the show, Walden has placed Alan as a co-owner on the deed to the house. This in fact, may lay the groundwork for a future exit of Walden in case "Ashton Kutcher" is not renewed for the show.
The other characters were extremely important to the whole concept of the show. Without them, the show is far different and a lot less interesting and fun. I give the show a 50/50 chance in succeeding next year under the same scenario it is today.
I think the writers could do a better job. They act like they don't care about the show anymore since Charlie is gone. I always thought Alan was funnier. They need to calm down on the filth. We don't need that to make us laugh. The best part of last night show was Alan running into the ocean on fire.
