Two and a Half Men without Charlie Harper

By Mark Bennett Subscribe to RSS | February 15th 2012 | Views:

While watching the latest season of the sitcom Two and a Half Men on your ATT Digital TV, it could just draw you that there is something charming that is missing. Well, the ratings of the sitcom are good and appreciable, but the sitcom lacks the audacity of the character Charlie Harper.

If you are a constant follower of the sitcom and a great fan of it, you would have undoubtedly noticed that since Charlie Sheen’s exit (I mean termination) from the show, the show is lacking that charismatic feeling. The character of Charlie Harper, an enjoyer single man who really treasures his bachelorhood does charm you. He was a kind of a bachelor who enjoyed dating women and took pleasure in the short term relationships he had with them. You may feel annoyed with his love life and his pathetic behavior towards his brother and nephew, but there was one thing that made Charlie Harper quite likeable.

Despite being selfish, self-centered, and mean demeanor, he possessed a kind heart which he never showed outside. Seriously, where would you find such a brother who would take in his elder brother when he was in despair need of a home. And that also for seven years, he had to get along with the day to day torturous activities of his brother and his nephew.

Especially a nephew, a young teenager who you may feel is obtuse and stupid. He doesn’t understand when his father and uncle pass a sarcastic comment about him. Actually he is pretty dumb in dating girls and his daily behavior. It could be maybe because of going through a pesky childhood where his parents get divorced and living with his uncle who is a charming womanizer. Even though he is a stupid and quite a slow child, he is liked by his uncle who enjoys teasing him every once in a while.

It was sad to know that CBS had to terminate the character of Charlie Harper. You do miss the uncanny behavior of Charlie when he gets irritated with his brother who does not have a perfect love life and a nephew whose only interest is having potato chips and other snacks. Sometimes, you really feel for him when he constantly intimidates his brother to leave the house and give him some space to lead a happy life.

Frankly, Charlie Sheen could have avoided his sarcastic comments about the CBS and the producers Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn. Sheen should have known when to draw a line when he is acting as a lead in a much popular show. The creators and the crew did suffer a lot of money and decline in viewership rate when Sheen was suffering from personal problem. Sometimes, you cannot blame the people at the CBS and the producers of the show as they felt it was a high time to put an end to Sheen’s irrational behavior. That could be the main reason why most of the people who worked on the show have said about the termination of Sheen. Many of them felt that it was good for the show as you could come to the set everyday knowing that there would be filming of the scene and no pack up. This was more common when Sheen was there in the sitcom which was said by Jon Cryer who played Charlie Harper’s brother.

One thing remarkable is that, the replacement for Charlie Sheen, Ashton Kutcher said that he cannot match the charisma, energy and the comedy timing of Sheen, but he hope to entertain and tickle the funny bone of the people. Ashton Kutcher enters the sitcom as Walden Schmidt, a billionaire internet tycoon who purchases the house of Charlie Harper and allows the brother and nephew of Harper to live with him. The viewership ratings have been commendable since the addition of Kutcher, but one has to wait and watch what is stored more in the future for this sitcom. Hope the character of Charlie Harper appears once in a while, maybe as a spirit. Let’s wait and watch.
