Not really funny
on 5 March 2015
Having been a fan of Two and a Half Men for many years, I was looking forward to this new Charlie Sheen series after he was fired from the show. This series is very much in the same spirit as Two and a Half Men. Sheen's character is also called Charlie, and he also plays a well off playboy, although with more a decent lifestyle this time.
I was surprise by how personal the whole show was. It's not just that Charlie Sheen is named Charlie, but one of his ex-wives is played by his an actual ex-wife (Denis Richards), and his father is played by his real father (Martin Sheen) who is also called Martin in the series !
Unfortunately this show just isn't funny, and that's a big problem for a sitcom. I haven't laughed out loud once during the whole season. It's enjoyable enough to watch, but that's it. I won't be buying season two.
