Reports say show will kill off Charlie Sheen’s “Two and a Half Men” character

Goodbye, Charlie, reports Beliefnet’s “Faith, Media and Culture” writer John Kennedy.

He reports that the raunchy CBS situation comedy “Two and a Half Men,” which has revolved around the debauchery of a character played by actor Charlie Sheen, will turn dark for just a minute or two when it premieres in September, because characters Alan and Jake will learn that Charlie Harper has bitten the dust.

Sources connected with the show told the entertainment reporting website TMZ that show producer Chuck Lorre‘s plan is to make sure Charlie Sheen can NEVER come back on the show. Although the first episode won’t be filmed until August 5, producers have been kicking around scenarios, which include Charlie driving a car over a cliff.

I think he goes insane from all the “pent up emotions’ and drinking and put him in a mental place where he will never get out.
Killing off a character is not good for a show. If it does not work out for ashton K, Just canc el the show look how many shows dont last when you “kill” off a person after 8 years.

I will not watch it cause Charlie was the show. Sorry.
But he made mistakes but who dont????He who is without sin cast the first stone.

sincerly,
mary

    Actually, M*A*S*H survived the death of Col. Henry Blake when MacClean Stevenson quit in a huff and was “killed” in a plane crash, ending all contract negotiations.

I stopped watching 2&1/2 months ago because the show started focusing on “Alan” and didn’t have the the added relief of much interaction with “Jake” to ease the painfull-to-watch self-indulgent schitck that Jon Cryer passes off as acting. Kill off Charlie?- who cares, without him the show’s dead anyway.

I never did like that program in the first place. I always thought Charlie Sheen was trashy and all the sitcoms on the air now are trash. Even TV Land has begun showing trashy sitcoms Hot in Cleaveland and Happily Divorced.The last sitcom to air that was decent was Full House. And that was seventeen years ago when it went off the air.

Forgive me for saying it but maybe they could bring him back for a live edition of their new plan to drive off the cliff. The devil himself couldn’t speak more evil, misguided, foul-mouthed nonsense than Sheen does “live”.

It is a TV show, and he makes the show funny, if we can’t laugh at ourselves then who can we laugh at. If you don’t like the show the don’t watch it.

Charlie was the show!! It was so off the wall for most of us, and it was so FUNNY.
Life is too serious, this show was a relief at end of day.

I am glad that this sitcom is going in a different direction. In the beginning it was so funny, but then became raunchy, with vulgar ramblings. It lost the innocence of the story. I quit watching it. If Ashton can pull it off, it is all good. Although I have my doubts. Charlie will not be missed by me.
