Matt's TV Week in Review

Carl Lumbly

This was a good week for welcoming back familiar and much-missed talent to some very good shows. Let's start with one of cable's underdogs, TNT's gritty and gripping police drama Southland, which introduced Carl Lumbly (who'll always be Dixon from Alias to me) as the squad's militaristic new captain, Brucker. "Our job just got harder," grumbles one of the grunts. Bad for him, good for Southland. Pledging to command a pro-active patrol, with Mickey D applications at the ready for those who screw up, Brucker's mantra is: "We protect! We serve! And we kick a— till we smell s---!" Yeah, he's that kind of boss.

Two and a Half Men Episode Recap: "Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt"

Should I start watching Two and a Half Men now that Ashton Kutcher has taken over for Charlie Sheen?

Full disclosure: I'm a terrible choice to recap the premiere of Men 2.0 really. Did I enjoy watching the show over which Sheen formerly held court? Um, no. Did I watch an episode or two while visiting my parents in Florida for Easter and not really mind it exactly? Sure. Was I a Kutcher fan from his days on That '70s Show? Nope. Will I admit to watching — and moderately enjoying -- Dude, Where's My Car? while home from work hungover sick? OK, fine. That said, my feelings about the merger of the relative pop-culture magnetism of Two and a Half Men and Kutcher can be summarized in one simple word brought to the colonies by my Emerald Isle forebears: meh.

Love on the Set of Two and a Half Men

Melanie Lynskey by Cliff Lipson/CBS

Melanie Lynskey may have driven off the set of Two and a Half Men, but when the sitcom celebrates its 100th episode, she'll be back as Charlie’s stalker Rose, and apparently for more than a pit stop. At the CBS Monday Night Lineup Premiere Party on Sept. 19, Men costar Marin Hinkle (who plays Judith Harper) revealed that in the milestone episode, Charlie will realize his true passion for his stalker. "He goes to seek her out to tell her how he feels about her, and there’s a surprise to how she handles it. I’m sure she will be back for many episodes. The way they left it had a wonderful dot-dot-dot."Lynskey is not the only guest star appearing on the comedy in its first six episodes. Janeane Garofalo appears as one of Alan's romantic mistakes, Ming Wen will be one of Charlie’s objects of affection, and much to Holland Taylor’s delight, Robert Wagner will come back to romance her character, Evelyn Harper. "I’ve had Martin Sheen and Robert Wagner as my lo... read more
