"His body just exploded like a balloon full of meat".
Ok , maybe not. His fiance Rose described Charlie's death in these elegant terms. After she caught him in the shower with another woman, he happened to slip on the train platform in Paris and was crushed by the oncoming train.
Well, either way, it was time to move on and introduce the Charlie's replacement.
First John Stamos made a guest appearence as a potential buyer for the Harper home but left in a hurry when he realized it was Charlie's old house. Apparently the two had an affair themselves a few years back. Then, Dharma and Gregg (yes those old two lovers) stopped by and apparently their relationship has soured over the years.
Just as all hope was lost, Walden Schmidt (played by Ahston Kutcher) appeared to save the day. Walden had just attempted suicide in the ocean but backed away because the water was too cold.
Anyways, I won't bore you with the rest of the plot but let's just leave it that Walden agrees to buy the home and let Alan stay.
The story did seem a little bit odd, but perhaps it is a little difficult to address the situation that played out in reality. If anything, I'm sure the show will rebound and be just as funny as ever.
Ashton Kutcher was ok, but nothin special. I though his voice sounded a little funny and he almost seemed nervous to be on the set. I don't know if that was just what the character was supposed to be, but Ashton is a pretty decent actor and should bring a lot of life to the show in the long run. I hope I'm correct.
As usual, Jon Cryer was hillarious and he should be able to carry the show himself for a little while. There are certainly plenty of plotlines that could revolve solely around him. I'd also like to see Ryan Stiles see a little more screentime. He was very funny in the "Drew Carey Show" a few years bacl and his deadpan delivery is always with perfect timing.
All in all though it paved the way for what will hopefully be another good season for Two and a Half Men. As long as the writers do what they do best, they'll be fine.
See you all next monday at 9 PM eastern time!
