Two and a Half Men – Ninth Season Review
Two and a Half Men is U.S. TV show – sitcom premiered on 22nd of September, 2003 on CBS. At the very beginning, this sitcom was about a hedonistic jingle writer, Charlie Harper (starring Charlie Sheen), his more conservative and uptight brother Alan (Jon Cryer) and Jake (Angus T. Jones), Alan’s growing son. Charlie lived a free-wheeling and unusual life in his beach-front Malibu house, when divorced Adam had to move and join him there together with Jake. This original premise was changed in the ninth season. On 13th of May, 2011, it was openly reported that Charlie Sheen would be replaced by actor Ashton Kutcher as the lead on the show.
On the 19th of September, 2011, the ninth season of the show premiered with the “Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt” episode. The first episode of the ninth season starts with Charlie Harper’s funeral and billionaire Walden Schmidt (starring Ashton Kutcher) is introduced as the new Malibu house owner. Walden deals with bad divorce following troubles and new “Two and a Half Men” bond and help each other cope with their personal loses and problems. After Charlie Sheen got fired, because of drug abuse problems and an on-air fight with the TV show creator Chuck Lorree, it was uncertain how the audience would react and accept the “Two and a Half Men” changes. The first few episodes of the ninth season were quite unwelcome and not well rated, but as time goes by people find this sitcom interesting and funny. The truth is, “the greatest hit comedy of the last decade” is not so popular any more, but creators and actors give their best to make it worth staying home on Monday evening and watching CBS. Even if it is not as funny as it was, evidently it is still better than most of the sitcoms TV offers at the moment.
