Chuck: "Okay, Ashton, this is what I've got... you come on to the set - you're some kind of 70s throwback... you know, the bell bottoms, long hair and instead of booze, we'll play you up as a 'hippie pothead'... everything through the pink lenses of pot... what'd you say???"

Ashton: "Well, Chuck, I was thinking I could debut my genuine acting skills - you know, develop a serious character..."

Chuck Lorre/Charles Levine is ruining one of my fav tv series.
And we all are invited to follow such an international hit series to die out.

However big or no name Chuck Lorre was before, as a matter of fact he´s world famous now. He must be an incredibly talented writer and should be an experienced enough producer, the more I wonder about his weirdo ideas (like replacing not one but THE main character the whole series is about)and childish payback vanity cards. Some are really cool, entertaining and funny. You easily think him to be a mastermind. When he describes how he felt an actor like Sheen was interested in his men script and the way he described Charlie Sheen was before.
Now he wrote almost the same about Ashton, happy about him at men.
Once upon a time, the two Chucks liked or at least respected each other.

One card deals with how to create a hit series. Hey Chuck, add one more: how to ruin a hit series within a short period of time/ as fast as you can. It´s sad what you do to a series you say you care for. A series so many peo are really into.

He replaces the person who made the series big.
I bet, most peo watch the series just bec of Charlie Sheen.
It´s like they (Lorre/Sheen) are playing a game. One person acts and waits the other to react... At first it was funny and entertaining, but now all cards are given, all bluffs are played.
With A.Kutcher at men instead of C.Sheen, the laughter stopped.

All peo want 2,5 men to go on but w/out replacements of any kind!
The series is that big bec of all of them.
I wonder how the other cast peo behave or not behave. The viewers have no power but what about the rest of the cast? And what does Jon Cryer say, he is jazzed about the future of men? He n-joyed the time with Charlie but looks forward to work with Ashton? Nice... Is he serious? It seems like, he is glad that the show goes on, whatever it takes! That´s what Jon recently said, what about all the others??? Do they feel the same?

What executives do have on mind?
How about replacing an executive prod like Mr. Lorre?
A lot of peo benefit of men so it had to go on.
A lot of peo got fat asses bec of 2,5 men.

I can´t imagine A.Kutcher to be on the show. Was there a single movie with Kutcher containing substance, any hard to miss/never to forget movie, a really important one, or one he did tremendously great? Is he a walk of fame person? Punk´d that was his show. He is obviously nice to see but I don´t think him to be funny at all. He looks like an innocent college stud, could be an older brother of Angus Turner Jones. Good for Lorre, Kutcher does not play the C.Harper role.

What´s the square root of.... how stupid & childish is that?
I´m as good as you with poor jokes.
What does peo hate most about the 2,5 men Relaunch?
Who´s the less needed person on the 2,5 men set?
Who helps Chuck Lorre to kill one or the hit series?

I never thought that 2,5 men will end up this way. That the last news about men would probably be a bad one....
If you ask me, it´s unworthy and not neccessary at all.
No one wants it to go on forever and three days.

Your sincerely,

I can't believe Chuck Lorre is so egotistical that he won't put Charlie back on the show. Charlie WAS the show!! There is no show without Charlie. You might as well shut it down/cancel it now if you aren't going to bring Charlie back. It's not going to work. Some previous fans will watch the 1st show to see how bad it's going to be, but that will be it. Bad move, CBS, to let Chuck Lorre ruin the best show on TV. It's a waste of time & money to try to make it work without Charlie. I won't be watching it now & I used to never miss it with Charlie on it. The old re-runs will be better than this new fiasco. Advertisers, be smart... don't pay for an ad on this sinking ship
