Since Season 9 began, "Two and a Half Men" has been a complete mess. Fans were not expecting a miracle when they heard that Ashton Kutcher was the new replacement. It was sad to see Charlie go because he was such a huge part of the show, but fans still decided to support it without him. Since the season premiere, there have been some off the wall occurrences. These are a few of the odd things the show has written in since the demise of Charlie and the introduction of Walden.
Walden kisses Judith
During an episode, we watched as Walden and Judith shared a kiss and Jake recorded it. What are the writers thinking? This is the same type of action fans would expect from Charlie. In fact, there was one episode where Charlie was going to sleep with Judith and Alan was going to sleep with her sister. It was during a birthday party for Jake. Nothing happened, but this was like a flashback to Charlie's life.
Walden appeared out of nowhere
We were introduced to Walden after Charlie's funeral. He ended up on the deck of the beach house and was soaking wet. There was no lead up to his entrance, and the only explanation we got was that he was trying to kill himself in the ocean. Why did he choose the beach house? Why did Alan let him in to use the phone? The whole story line here is screwy. It makes no sense. Fans were hoping for a more gentle introduction and a little more connection.
Walden sleeps with Evelyn
The Halloween episode previews show Evelyn and Walden in bed together. Again, this is just like something Charlie would do. The whole idea of that happening makes the show awkward and unappealing. Walden has been known to do some crazy things, but this has to be one of the oddest ideas the writers have had. Why Evelyn? How will this affect the dynamic of the show?
That has definitely changed since the "Charlie days," but the writers didn't have to make it so weird. The story lines are just really wacky, even for a show like "Two and a Half Men." The writers need to find a suitable fling for Walden, or push Bridget back into his life. The flip flopping each week was definitely a Charlie thing, and should be phased out of the picture.
