Two And A Half Men
OK, I wouldn’t go so far as to say that Two and a Half Men qualifies for the dictionary definition of “filth”, as it’s been branded by its resident “half man”, 19 year-old star Angus T Jones (Jake). But if you heard the young actor’s rambling quasi-religious rant, and dire warning that TV as he knows it “rots your brain’‘, you may think he a bit of a point.
Jones’ impressionable young mind has marinated for more than half his life on the set of a show about a sexually-opportunistic, cynical, self-satisfied lothario who uses women like tissues - playing himself - and the experience appears to have turned the earnest young guy to God.
It’s no wonder he sounds a bit confused, given the life lessons his character, Jake, took in with his Twinkies while in the care of randy Uncle Charlie (Charlie Sheen) and his “hen-pecked” divorcee dad, Alan (Jon Cryer). Here are a few examples:
A good woman is an ignorant woman (if you can’t find a dumb young one to play with, keep the one you can find in the dark):

Once upon a time there was an endearing little sitcom called Bewitched. It was predictable and more than a little cheesy, but it was good fun.
A few decades later, there was another sitcom called Two and a Half Men. It was predictable and more than a little cheesy, and it mightily sucked.
Two and a Half Men resumed overnight, after a six month absence caused by Charlie Sheen’s quest to simultaneously screw every woman in the world along with his own dignity. He succeeded in both.

Does anything churn the stomach so much as news that Londoners are willing to part with more than $20 for a serving of ice cream made from breast milk?
Actually, yes. And he goes by the name Charlie Sheen. With a rap sheet dating back to the early 90s, the 45-year-old is no slouch in the “Bad Boy” department, as Sheen himself made abundantly obvious in a bizarre interview on A Current Affair last night.
Compared to a tally of Sheen’s misdemeanours even Matt Newton suddenly looks more wholesome than a character on Packed To The Rafters.

I enjoy Two and a Half Men. Does this make me a failed feminist?
Feminists make a great deal of noise when it concerns America’s #1 hit sitcom. Charlie is labelled as misogynist and sexist under a thin veneer of “comedy”.
I understand people’s concern with its 7pm timeslot, but what I don’t understand is why people are so angry. Especially women.
