Review of "Two and a half men" by
The show is decadent but that is the point, humor in the decadent lifestyle. The show is not about any message or heavy material but the humor in the decadent out of touch lifestyle of an individual. You laugh because you know you are far removed from it and by the idiocy of it all. Charlie Sheen basically plays himself and shows us his "winning" lifestyle and sometimes the line is blurred between laughing with him or at him. The new shows with Ashton Kuthcher are more sedate and it has become more of a traditional sitcom. That is the most important thing to take away from it, this is a situational comedy, good for a few laughs but not to be taken seriously.
