Two and a half men is a grossly overrated and unfunny, yet bafflingly popular sitcom which should have been trashed ages ago. Its name isn’t even properly punctuated; it should be “two-and-a-half men” because the whole “two-and-a-half” modifies the noun that follows. It uses lame jokes and is so outdated that it even uses a laughter track to remind the audience when something is meant to be funny (though it rarely is).
Don’t mourn its passing; instead, indulge in some quality British comedy from the last few years to see how it should be done. I particularly recommend Green Wing, The Office, The Thick of It, The Mighty Boosh, Outnumbered, and the Armando Iannucci Shows.
I watched a single episode of that 2,1/2 men crap a couple years ago and have been expecting it’s cancellation ever since. How it held on for so long, and firefly got cancelled after one season is beyond me.
Had to sign up to add to Snip’s great list of British comedy. I would also highly recommend The Inbetweeners, Shameless, Skins and Spaced. British comedy is so much better than the Seppo stuff that dominates television where I live.
Mass, I recently came into quite a bit of money and was hoping you would be my banker, but maybe you’ve had just one too many J’s in your time. I know the H gets a bad rap, but I need someone who can diversify.
I created an account for the sole purpose voicing my annoyance at Abbey for her misuse of “ironic.” What happened in the described context is not irony; in fact, it is the exact opposite of irony. My day is now ruined. Damn Abbey.
