Two and a Half... Laughs.

All right- I'm about to do something I have never really done on this blog...  Review a television show.

I don't know if anyone caught the new Two and a Half Men, but...  Well, let's just say that their idea to kill off Charlie but keep the show going has not inspired me to continue watching.  Let's be honest about this- Charlie Sheen WAS the show.  There really is nothing else there without him.  Every other person on the show was more of a supporting role than anything.

Now, they've brought in Ashton Kutcher.  At first, I wasn't sure what to think about the move.  It could have been good, it could have been bad.  Turns out, bad doesn't BEGIN to cut it.  They're replacing the rascal character with a billionaire whose whining could potentially win over Moaning Myrtle from Harry Potter.  More than that, suddenly ALAN is the lady-advice guru?!  For crying out loud- It would have been better to get an over-the-fence neighbor!

As much as I hate to say it, the season premiere was funniest in the scenes where Charlie was being talked about, or talked to...  And the sad thing is, Charlie was nowhere to be seen.  That doesn't bode well for that 70's show kid...

Honestly, the best thing the network could do, at this point, is announce that Sheen will be signed back on, and turn this whole new season into some horrendous nightmare...  Sort of like the one it's shaping up to be.
