    Loved the story on how Charlie died, seemed fitting. Also loved the cameos that were in the episode. Mr Demi Moor is to a great start, good jokes in spite of the laugh track.

    Winters,...
    Dunno. I will watch a couple more, but this wasn't impressive to me. Funniest was Greg and Dharma's appearance. I was getting tired of it before Sheen imploded, and I can't abide that horrid maid more than a minute at a time.

    Overall I think the show was well done. I think we'll continue to see a funny show with the great one-liners.

    The cameos were good - I particularly loved the "Dharma & Greg" cameo. Chuck Lorre was co-creator and has producer/writer credits for 117 episodes of that show. It was cool that Jenna Elfman and Thomas Gibson did that cameo for Lorre.

    Man it was bad ! If that were the pilot for the show it would get axed in the first half season if it made it that far . All they did was cut Charlie Sheen down on the whole show . It looked like Chuck Lorre is a jerk . The way he wrote the episode . The show will be never be the same with out Charlie Sheen . The show is over Jonny !

    "Having won the right to be one of the filthier comedies on TV -- one that seldom lets warm and fuzzy get in the way of a sex joke -- there was no way to be maudlin about Charlie Harper's demise and maintain the tone of the series. So Charlie's off-screen death is treated as one extended punch line -- with the many women he bedded coming more to gloat than mourn."

    To be honest, I never really liked the show, but watched the season premiere to see how they handled the switch. I thought Ashton Kutcher was pretty sharp. The crude humor isn't to my taste, but Ashton has some decent comedy skills.

    I thought Ashton was kind of "stale" or "monotone". I don't see the show going past this season at this rate.

    I think that's the character's persona. A "normal" guy who has the looks, brains, and money but is somewhat socially awkward with the nudity, hugging, can't talk to girls, etc.

    Can't really expect a guy who just attempted (badly) to kill himself to be the life of the party.

    Personally I thought the whole funeral scene was really weak, the rest was decent and I'm looking forward to seeing where they go with it.

    I keep getting the feeling that every one on the show with the exception of the boy is going to end up in bed with him.

    Maybe it was just me, but I don't remember her being that controlling or him being that mean during their show. I remember her being kind of a goofball and him a whipped puppy.

    Not sure I could disagree anymore then I do....

    I thought it was great how they wrote and portrayed CHARLIE HARPER... the character.

    I didn't see them once cutting Charlie Sheen down, which they could have in many ways.

    I thought they kept it pretty much in character, for the character.

    We thought it was great that Rose was the one that did him in.
    That his mom didn't change, and was sellnig the house at the funeral.
    The long list of cameo's was well done... and Jake... was still Jake.

    I am not sure they could have done it any better, including the two girls disappearing up stairs and leaving Alan downstairs .... again.

    Will the show continue past this season... not sure, it was already starting to get pretty long in it's run... but I'll continue to watch it as a secondary show.

    Were Dharma or Greg called by their names? I can't remember.
