    Why 'Two and a Half Men' Should Be Canceled

    Mr. Chuck Lorre, if you somehow bring Charlie Sheen (No offense against Ashton Kutcher) back to the show ..... trust me, without a shadow of a doubt, once again this show will be the most viewed television show around the world. One can watch seasons 1 to 8 over and over again without getting bored for a fraction of a second.

    This show isn't funny anymore, its more of a stale now. I used to laugh at this show every week for years however I don't laugh at all ever since Charlie Sheen was fired from the show in 2011.

    Angus T. Jones, who plays Jake has been only in some of the shows for five minutes via skype. If hes not going to be shown at all, who is the HALF MAN in the title of the show ?

    This show has been on the air for ten years now and should be stopped with some diginty left before people start hating the show completly and then forcefully be cancelled in the ...

    Seeking Godzilla

    After my complaints last week, Two and a Half Men went ahead and proved me wrong on the Season 10 finale, cranking out a terrific episode.

    It had everything: Walden finally acted like a mature individual, Alan acted like a responsible father and even Berta grew emotional. That’s a very unusual sight.

    "Cows, Prepare to Be Tipped" made the viewers painfully aware of one thing as well: we are all going to miss Jake. Like I have said countless times, the show is so much better with him around; it's just a shame that his character has been reduced to a recurring role in the fall.

    However, before departing for Japan, Jake gave the audience a lot of gems, from his misunderstanding of sushi to his fear of Godzilla. Check them out now in our Two and a Half Men quotes section.

    Elsewhere, Walden finally dated a woman who was as intelligent and smart as he is... granted, she was also a grandmother. Still, she is a huge step up from all his exes. I hope that wh...

    Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt

    On what was likely the most-watched episode of Two and a Half Men in history, people tuned in to the season nine premiere for one reason: to meet Ashton Kutcher's Walden Schmidt.

    But before we even get there, I want to discuss the star-studded opening, starting with the ex-girlfriend ladden funeral.

    From old flames such as Courtney (Jenny McCarthy) and Mia to more recent women like Chelsea and even her friend, Sherri (Jeri Ryan), thy were all there. It was vintage Two and a Half Men humor, right on down to Evelyn trying to sell the house at the funeral.

    Back at the house during the second act, we still had the entire supporting cast, including Berta and Evelyn and going right on down to Judith and Herb. And that's before the celebrity buyers came in.

    These were quick and cute, from John Stamos and his devil's threesome to a modern day Dharma and Greg talking divorce. The latter was an adorable nod to Lorre's p...

    People Who Love Peepholes

    So it's week two of Ashton Kutcher taking over for Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men - or Alan and Friends, as I like to affectionately call it. As of tonight, that is.

    While Kutcher has grown on me slightly since last week (which isn't saying much) the show still just feels a little off.

    There were plenty of scenes in Men's previous eight seasons that did not feature Charlie, so I'm not even just blaming his absence. "People Who Love Peepholes" just didn't feel like Two and a Half Men. For example, take Berta.

    I'm a huge Berta fan, but for some reason, they decided to give her a voiceover this week. When you're already going through such a huge change like swapping out your main star, do you really have to change up the format on us?

    Tonight, we also met Walden's much talked about ex-girlfriend, Bridget, played by Judy Greer. I'm not convinced you're going to find a bigger Greer fan (just check my Facebook profile p...

    Big Girls Don't Throw Dog Food

    Well, it's good to see Two and a Half Men taking advantage of its half man this week, with the first regular episode to air after the two-part season premiere introducing Ashton Kutcher's Walden Schmidt.

    So was Jake, a live-in Berta, and an increased dose of Judith and Herb enough to make "Big Girls Don't Throw Dog Food" feel like a classic episode of Two and a Half Men?

    I realize trying to compare this show to its Charlie days is going to get old fast.  But I feel like as the show's first episode after the premiere, I still must do so.

    So I'm going to leave it as this: the scenes without Kutcher almost feel like the days of old. But the second you have an example like Walden's dinner date with Bridget, it feels like a whole new sitcom... just with the same name. And that's a tough thing to accept after putting in eight years with these people.

    I want this show to survive because I still love the other characters. I was glad t...

    Nine Magic Fingers, Two Big Guns

    Wow. Two and a Half Men is really busting out the big guns to try and make up for the lack of Sheen. And by big guns, I am, of course, referring to Jenny McCarthy's breasts. Did she always have those things!?

    Seriously, though, this episode was probably the strongest of the Kutcher-led series, mostly thanks to the guest starring beauties (McCarthy and Courtney Thorne-Smith). And not just Courtney's cell-phone raising qualities.

    Thanks to the two ladies well-developed characters from multi-episode arcs, the show almost felt a little more like home. Especially for Alan, who's even back in his bedroom thanks to "Nine Magic Fingers" and looking out for his latest rich man.

    Now, I'm far from saying this sitcom is the same or as good as seasons past, but for the first time this season, I was actually enjoying scenes and not being embarrassed for the cast and crew. Yes, Kutcher is still my least favorite part. But luckily this ep...

    Giant Cat Holding Churro

    This week may not have featured Jake or any special guest stars (like last week's Jenny McCarthy), but there was still plenty of love for old Two and a Half Men fans.

    For starters, we finally got to see Lyndsey's much talked about soft core porn, Cinnamon's Buns, and its partially simulated sex, in a nice throwback to last season. Plus, a Melrose Place joke?!? You know they've been saving that cute line.

    Then, we got plenty of fun references to Alan's past that previously seemed forgotten. It's good to know the writers remember Alan's possible daughter and generally shadiness. Let's just see it come back as a plot point next.

    As far as Charlie's replacement? Ashton Kutcher was much more in his That 70's Show element as a stoned Walden. But, as the wise Homer Simpsons once said, reefer and drunk are two very different elements. Stoner comedy definitely felt a little out of place on Men.

    Sure, being high finally...

    Greetings, Conan the Humanitarian

    Judy Greer must have set some kind of record on the most recent episode of Two and a Half Men.  

    The actress has now played Aunt Myra, Bridget and Dani. At least last night's appearance was intentional and the audience was in on the joke. Plus, she gets bonus points for bringing along the beautiful Kiki, the bimbo resonsible for uttering the episode title, "The Squat and Hover."

    Greer wasn't the only guest star who returned: as Jane Lynch reprised her role as one of my favorite supporting characters, Dr. Freeman. While Ashton Kutcher's phoned-in acting and failure to play off this comedic legend hurt this scene's potential to compete with Lynch's past appearances, it still had some great lines and laughs.

    Also guest starring? True Blood's hunky Joe Manganiello. He stopped by to give Ashton Kutcher a run for his masculine money, making men everywhere feel inadequate. Of course, his character wasn't just good looking, he was C...

    Hey, It's Jake!

    Welcome back, Jake! For the first time this season, Alan's son was actually in an episode significantly enough to warrant his own narrative - and he was even given the line of the episode that I'm sure many of our readers cheered on:

    We have to get rid of Walden. He's got to go.

    This storyline was minor, and a bit re-hashed from previous tutoring scenarios the show has run, but Jake's interactions with Walden and rate of success kept it entertaining enough.

    Then there was Alan relying on the show's Charlie crutch, as he read the deceased's journal. It led to some pretty decent jokes and minor insight into the beloved character, while never getting nasty enough to offend Charlie lovers.

    Speaking of nasty, there was Walden's storyline. Sorry, that was the closest thing I could make to an double nintendo. As little as I normally care for Walden, at least his adventures with Alan have been somewhat enjoyable.

    Winning!

    The latest Two and a Half Men continued the refreshing trend of last week: really taking advantage of its half man. Jake, along with his father, finally explored his feelings over the loss of their respective uncle and brother.

    It was actually a pretty welcome change to see Charlie spoken about in a slightly positive light via "Thank You For The Intercourse." Sure, there was still the obligatory venereal disease jokes, but there was also plenty of heart as they talked about the man.

    I understood the necessity for a sitcom to jump right into the laughs on a season premiere - but when you decide to kill off a major relative of several of the characters, you need to address some legitimate mourning. Bravo for getting that job done here.

    From Jake's reminiscing of how his uncle treated him like an adult idiot, all the way to Alan's full on mental breakdown, it really was #winning to me.  Now that they seem to have gotten enough of the Charlie out of t...
