Not too bad, Mr. Kutcher!

A few evenings ago, I watched the much-anticipated premiere of Two And A Half Men, Season 9.  It actually was a pretty good show.  But I think, the producers should have omitted the opening scene at the funeral altogether.  Having all of Charlie’s ex-girlfriends dissing him during a – what I would consider – pretty serious scene, seemed tasteless to me.  It seemed ‘forced’.  Instead of just moving on to a ‘new’ season, it felt as if the producers still couldn’t let go of the Charlie Sheen fiasco graciously.  Ok, the real Charlie was no angel, but he did take the show to the popularity it now enjoys!

What a hoot!  The rest of the show basically kept up with the pace set by this hilarious chance encounter between Alan and Walden.  I guess, before we dismiss the new character as a lame replacement, let’s see what the rest of the season brings…
