Sheen’s departure from Men was controversial — and heralded a rather spectacular and public rough patch for the actor — but in a statement from FX, he waxed nostalgic about the good times. “As I culled through the mass of shows, eight-plus years, I was met with a theme of innocence,” he said, recalling fond memories of his co-stars and even series creator Chuck Lorre, with whom he had a nasty falling out.

“These are the memories that I take from this epic time. Not necessarily the work, but the experiences, the friendships created instantly and over time. I hope viewers share a similar feeling or two and a lot of laughs when they tune in,” he said. “Who cares how it ended; when it was good, it was great. We were in the middle of something big, the return of the sitcom. We were hungry and we were” — wait for it — “winning.”

    And Charlie misses yet another opportunity to take the high road…

  2. Megan says:

    Charlie is so entertaining. He is definitely a messed up indivudual but for some reason I like the dude. Don’t like all the drugs etc, but he seems like a good guy when all that stuff isn’t in his life.

    • Chester says:

      Charlie is really funny, and the show, while crass and juvenile, was a lot of fun to watch.

      • Ty says:

        I thought it was the worst pile of unfunny drivel I’d ever seen. It reminded me of that chevy chase show, horrible. Married with children was a real show, not that crap. The worst part about it was not even that it was SUCH a bad show, it was a bad, unfunny show with good ratings. It says something about the degraded taste of the viewing audience.

        • dukeroberts says:

          You are so right, Ty. Not only is it extremely unfunny with perplexingly high ratings, but it also has an irritating laugh track. Laugh tracks are a relic of the past, like segregation. Let laugh tracks stay in the past. I know when I think something is funny. You don’t need to tell when I should or should not laugh.

        • TV Gord says:

          WHAT??? What Chevy Chase show are you talking about. And you think Married With Children was better than Two And A Half Men??? Wow. That’s astonishing to me. It just goes to show…there’s no accounting for taste.

          • Rudy says:

            Married with Children was miles better than ‘Men”. Always has been, always will be. In my opinion all thanks to Ed O’Neill, he made that show!

          • TV Gord says:

            Rudy, that’s absurd. Tell me one clever thing they ever did that was funnier than what you heard on an elementary school bus. MWC was pandering to the lowest common denominator in the lowest degree. Men at least requires a little bit of functioning synapses to get the humor.

  3. dukeroberts says:

    Sorry, Charlie. That show was never great, nor even good. That is and has always been terrible.

  4. suzi says:

    Suddenly he finds value in the show and people he trashed, because doing it will help his new show. :/ I doubt I’ll enjoy the new show, but I can’t deny I’ll watch the first episode. I sincerely hope he has gotten his sh…act together, if only so he can be a good parent.

  5. I don’t see why everyone is giving two and a half men such lousy responses. The show was never bad, depending on your humor that is, if you aren’t a type of person who doesn’t like to drink or even have a good time or even likes to let loose and be a little “silly” there’s nothing wrong with that. But the people who give this show a hard time is to serious with life overall. “Charlie Goodson” – Anger management and “Charlie Harper” – Two and a half men; are very similar characters please if you didn’t like 2 1/2 men please do not watch this show. There are so many similarities except “Goodson” is an angry version. Both great shows in my opinion. I saw they clips on their YouTube channel and it’s hilarious!

    Charlie’s cleaning woman brings her sexy and rebellious 16-year-old daughter Prudence to Charlie’s house.
    I think they mean granddaughter.

    Who’s Vod Kanockers? was a hilarious episode. Too bad they did not pick it

  7. peter says:

    they did not pick up one of the best episodes in my opinion ”the two finger rule ”
    TAHM was great untill the end of season 6 but season 7 8 and 9 arggggg

  8. Lana says:

    I would have added ‘I Always Wanted a Shaved Monkey’ and ‘Golly Moses, She’s a Muffin’. I love the Rose and Kandi episodes.
