Changing Channels Best of 2011
The NEW Two and a Half Men
Call me a prude, or say that I don’t have much of a sense of humor. Say what you want, but I am not all that concerned about who replaces Charlie Sheen on the CBS comedy “Two And A Half Men”. Word that it will be Ashton Kutcher doesn’t particularly excite me because I am not a fan of the show.
The half-hour program was kind of cute and funny in its early seasons with Jake being a not particularly bright kid being raised by his mostly decent dad (Jon Cryer) … and with growing influence from his his Uncle Charlie (Sheen). Sheen’s character is completely obsessed with sex, however, which made the “humor” obvious and he became a one-trick pony.
One of Kutcher’s recent movies (“No Strings Attached”) is about his character having an unmarried affair with a supposed “friend” (Natalie Portman). That said, the move to “Two And A Half Men” will be a seamless one for Kutcher.
But I won’t be watching … I’ll be changing channels.
