How sad it is so many avid followers turned after one episode. I have a great respect for the cast and crew for trying to pull out of the spin that Charlie Sheen placed on everyone. Hats off to Ashton Kutcher for stepping into big shoes. He is funny, talented and a good man. I would not lose faith with such incredible talent based on one episode. All of these people took such a big hit during the drama. I support the show 100% I cannot imagine how hard it must be trying to revive such a wonderful sitcom. Did anyone really think it was going to be the same? They HAVE to restructure. The writers made Charlie not Charlie. The show will prevail again.
I am a devoted fan of two and a half men, come on people. Charlie was a great loss, but it was of his own doing. From his antics, all of these wonderful actors lost money. They are doing the best they can to reform. Chuck Lorre is an incredibly talented man. The writers on the show are the ones who made and will remake the show past and present. I have complete faith they will shine. One show does not constitute a future bad sitcom. Give them time.
