Question: I watch Two and a Half Men for some light, escapist entertainment. I enjoy the laughs and the double entendres. But really, that all stems from the writing. In fact, the Alan-centric episodes are some of the best ones. I wouldn't mind seeing more Berta, either. The Jake character is now of an age where he's picking up more of the storylines. If Charlie moved to London with Rose and his doppelganger cousin came to live in the house, they could keep a ladies man/lush character (if they feel that the show absolutely needs one). In a way, I'm disappointed that they've decided to end the season with no new episodes. Maybe they would have shown that the show could still be popular without the Sheen character.

Premise: Genial tales of a family with three boys that had a less-than-genial transformation involving three titles. It was originally `Valerie,' but that had to go when star Valerie Harper left in 1987 amid a dispute with the producers. Next, it was `Valerie's Family,' before taking its final title in '88. Harper's character dies, and the brood is raised by her sister, Sandy. And while plotlines were often light, it did tackle, quite bluntly, AIDS, which is contracted by recurring character Rich.
