As I said in the other thread, i'm quite happy about this as i still quite like the show, even though Alan's character is quite unlikeable more often than not. Walden has often referred to him as his 'best friend' but he never actually does anything worthy of that title I think.

Not surprised about Angus T. Jones either - his role was pretty much killed off at the end of Season 9 with Jake joining the Army, and 'that' tape probably put paid to him ever rejoining the show full time anyway. Wouldn't surprise me if he just cuts his losses and leaves completely.

I think that they should add a new young boy to the show.

The only possible way it could work is if someone turned up at the door and said he was Charlie's son - it would be completely logical from a character perspective, but it would just feel a bit contrived - especially if they make him as dense as Jake is.

Let's fact it this show has been pants since Charlie lost his marbles half way through season 8.

The writers have never made the new dynamic funny and Ashton couldn't act his way out of a paper bag.

Like Married with Children's Seven, I imagine that would be a complete failure. Adding a random kid to a show usually doesn't work.

That sounds like a good idea.

He could be like Charlie, only a younger version.

He would be Alan's nephew so there would be a relationship there.

Sadly I think they need to get rid of Courtney Thorne-Smith though. Much as I like her as an actress, her character didn't really work with Alan.

And they also need to recognise that Alan is staying in the house. When they tried to have him move out it didn't really work either, just like Alan.

I don't agree. Yes, the Charlie Sheen seasons were better, but I don't think season 9 and 10 have been bad at all. I think season 9 was good, but season 10 has been very good. They have clearly stepped things up.

I'm glad there'll be less Jake. His character has become far too dumb and predictable. I really hope Alan breaks up with Lindsay, I can't stand her Hopefully we've seen the last of Zoe too. Also, I would really like Kate to appear at least every now and then. She's adorable

Oh, and I want more Herb, Rose and Evelyn in season 11

Anyone who thinks it could be, will be sorely disappointed. It's like when a new singer joins your favourite band; you still enjoy the band but know it will never quite be the same as it was before because of that 'magic' dynamic.

My advice - treat it like a different show altogether and don't compare it to seasons 1-8.

I honestly think both Ashton seasons have been far better than the 1 and a bit seasons of Charlie Sheen's Anger Management.

I too think the same, the show has gone from being really sharp and witty to being dull. For me it should be given a decent close. I prefare to watch the constant repeats with Charlie rather than what it has become.

Well I almost got it right

'Two and a Half Men' casts girl to replace Angus T Jones

The new character will turn up at Walden Schmidt's (Kutcher) house looking for her father, the recently deceased Charlie.

She will eventually end up moving in with Walden and Alan Harper (Jon Cryer)

So did anyone watch the first episode with Charlie's daughter?
What does everyone think?

I thought it was OK. I feel like they're trying a bit too hard in terms of making her like Charlie. Hopefully she'll grow on me, though.

I actually think Miley Cyrus' character, Missy, would have been a better choice for an ongoing one. But like I said, hopefully Jenny will grow on me

Utter garbage. The new girl is awful and Alan is just a parody of himself now. Walden is wetter than a week in Skegness.

Series link cancelled I think.

Thought it was an acceptable episode to bring her in on, Now that the into is done I'm sure as the character develops it could work out ok.

I like seeing Evelyn playing a role again, she has barely featured in the Waldon Era especially in the last series

I did laugh at Alan dropping Charlie ashes and saying "Oh Not again" and Berta repeating her words from before "I'm not cleaning that up"

I'll keep watching for sure

i watched an episode and thought it was awful. A child who takes after their father but the twist is its a girl. Meh. I also prefer watching old Charlie Sheen episodes.

I also decided to watch a few Anger Management's, and the Charlie character broke down after the female doctor left which has resulted in a drinking, partying, womanising Charlie... they also brought in Brian Green - its sad that Charlie Sheen has to return to type but the drunk him and Brian Green make the show much more watchable.

This show now no longer makes any sort of sense. I know its only a comedy and not to be over analysed but seriously its totally jumped the shark.

Aside from last nights episode not being that funny there is really no link whatsoever between the characters. Alan has gone from being a downtrodden loser early on to being actually quite dislikable now. Walden now doesnt really like him much similar to the way Charlie felt about him but there is no relationship there so why does he still have him around? Why would a woman in her mid 20s suddenly become involved? Why would Walden let it happen?

It makes NO sense at all and it could have been done so much better IMO.

Thanks everyone. I agree with you Cantona07. The show makes no sense. Why would a multimillionaire like Walden want to live in a house with Alan? And Alan has become a mooching loser and an unlikable character- now that Jake is no longer on the show we won't see his good side, the father trying to help his son. Making Charlie's daughter gay gives it a little spice, but again, why would Walden allow her into his house and his life so quickly? The writing is awful. Unless the writing becomes better I don't see the show coming back next year for a new season.

I certainly have to agree that Alan has become quite unlikeable now - they used to occasionally remind us that Walden and Alan were best friends, but that seems to have been thrown out now - if you disliked someone that much who was living in your house rent-free, would you not kick them out?

That said, I still found it amusing enough though, so I'll likely stick with it.
