    Loved the John Stamos and Dharma & Greg cameos. Lol

    So what was the meaning of the cans from the vanity card?

    I was gonna mention the cameos.

    my guess is the cans were to Sheen signifying he got fired (canned)

    I thought the funeral was pretty good. Having a bunch of ex cast members there was cool. Part of me wishes there was more of it, but I suppose it's best not to overdue it.

    This was actually the first episode I ever saw and I enjoyed it. I enjoy Ashton in small doses and look forward to this.

    He wasn't big enough here?

    It seems to me that Kutchner was essentially playing "Kelso II" here so no great stretch for him.

    I don't normally watch this show (I think I've seen about five episodes over the years and portions while flipping channels) but I was curious about how they were going to write out Sheen.

    While I prefer my premise, I thought this one worked well and was funny.

    (Of course, there is an out if Sheen ever reconciles with Lorre. Highly doubtful I think though.)

    Loved that. Chelsea, Mia, Jenny McCarthy, Jerry Ryan, some others I recognized. Would have been funny if Jenna Elfman was there too, but I don't think Charlie actually slept with her character on 2 1/2 Men.

    I was disappointed.

    It was like OKCharlie'sdeadhere'sthefuneraltoproveitlet'sallmoveonsohereisthenewguyandahalfassedpremisetoexplainhispresence.

    Which is what it was.
    I just found it lacking in humor.
    IMO the show is done.

    I don't know how anyone can say that. Maybe you need to go back and watch That 70s Show again. He was nothing like Kelso IMO.

    I enjoyed it. I don't find Ashton hot but I've always found him entertaining. I think he and the rest of the cast, especially Cryer meshed well so far. I think this is just what the show needed. Something fresh. I was checking out even before Charlie started his antics.

    Jake farting was funny. I think Kelso will fit in fine

    We enjoyed it for the most part...I'm still not 100% sold on Ashton's character yet. He seemed like a real scattered airhead and I didn't find him that funny.

    One other thing...and I KNOW it's just a TV show, but I could help but keep thinking to myself, "who in the hell opens their door when they see a stranger standing there soaking wet late at night..and on top of that act like their your new bud within 10 seconds of meeting them ("Hey lets go have a drink and talk".

    Oh well...we're going to stick with the show since we've watched from the beginning...lets hope it stays funny.

    Tuned in to see how they were going to resolve things with Charlie. Thought it was ok but not good enough to break into our Fall lineup.
