Put a fork in it, this show is done...

Ashton is funny, I'm a huge fan of "Dude, Where's My Car?", but he's just not funny in 2.5 men.

You lost all credibility with that. :P
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Not all that bad... Personally, my wife and I seem to be enjoying it equal to the last few seasons, with this season having a little more "class" and still making it funny. Ashton is not that bad.

On a different note, just got done watching the CC Roast of Charlie Sheen.... Hilarious!! Very good comedians there.

Disagree...

We are actually enjoying this season so far...
And I have only been watching in syndication or "nothing else is on" for the last couple seasons.

The difference to me -- the original show made me "lol" all the time, the new show hasn't made me "lol" yet. Sad to say, but the "gay" ending was gratuitous and, to me, a tad disgusting. The show has never been pc, but last night was a new low.

Jon Cryer is, well, still 'Alan', but the whriers seem determined to embarrass Cryer even further by reducing his character to a shameless blob of protoplasm.

Ashton Kutcher was funny enough, but, even so, I don't think the show has legs to last the season, but it's on the shoulders of the writers, not on Kutcher.

Nice to see Judy Greer back in a recurring role. She is so great with her comedic timing and flawless delivery.

Same here

The only thing so far that has come close to making me laugh was when Alan said he dated a poster of Molly Ringwald. I said "hah" out loud but certainly did not lol.

So far I'm enjoying the show. Actually I think Jon Cryer is funny and it's a plus for him being out of Charlie Sheen's shadow. This is the time for Cryer to shine and I hope he does.

Kutcher for me is just OK. He's kind of a goofball so the show has lost the "smart guy-dumb guy" dynamic since both Cryer and Kutcher's characters are idiots. Time will tell if the two of them can create and new dynamic that can carry the show.

Maybe I have much lower standards for a sit-com...
But my wife and I laughed pretty hard at that line.

Oh, and I forgot about Berta's persistent and embarrassing private ruminations about Walden's physique. I am no prude by any stretch of the imagination, but her thoughts about him 'giving women an erection' was, in my opinion, a new low. Maybe someone shoud ask Demi about that. :sure:

I liked the 1st episode, but this episode sort of fell flat for me... I'll have to see if things get better in the next few weeks.

Based on things I've seen you post in the past I'd say our taste in sit-coms is about the same. I laughed my butt off at HIMYM and Mike & Molly but 2.5 men fell very flat.

Well, I'm not really liking it so far. Everything seems a bit "forced" and Ashton Kutchers acting is just terrible. Just seems like he's reading from a cue card all the time. There's been humorous moments, but IMO these are the worst back to back episode the show has ever put out.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

She is awesome and a reason to watch. Watched her show last year (can't remember the name) and thought she was great. Too bad it wasn't renewed.

You got to admit though, the comment of him dating a Molly Ringwald poster in HS was hilarious. Wasn't expecting that and LOL at that. (For those of you that missed the reference, you're too young. ;))

I do wonder if the show will survive. Not that it will be bad, but that it won't be as good.

I had to look her up, she reminds me of Parker from Leverage. Anyway I'm rather surprised that she already played a different role on the show.
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.

Or too old. When Pretty in Pink came out I was a senior in college and a bit too old for "high school comedies".

I agree the show sucks now Ashton is not funny he is goofy .And who wants to see him nude every show . This has turned into a girls show . Way to go Chuck Lorre ! Just because Charlie called you a name you screwed up a good show that could have been on 3 or 4 more years !

I "cancelled" 2 Broke Girls last night. Just didn't find it funny at all. Thought the pilot was decent.

2.5... umm.. yeah... I loved 2.5, and also loved Kutcher in That 70s Show, but they really need to get rid of the depressed Kutcher character. Alan is supposed to be the depressed character :D.

Still, it did bang out 20M last night. Thats still more then Charlie ever did. We will have to see where it stabalizes.

Still #2, it is missing something without Charlie.
