As promised, all was revealed.
Viewers finally got their first look tonight at the revamped Two and a Half Men and its new leading man, Ashton Kutcher, who as you all very well know replaced Charlie Sheen.
No hard feelings, though. Charlie took a moment to address his former cast and crew at the hit CBS show at last night's Emmys: "From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together, and I know you will continue to make great television."
So did Sheen's well wishes help out Kutcher, Jon Cryer & Co.?
The ninth season premiere opened with a funeral—Charlie Harper's funeral. Loyal viewers said their final goodbyes to Sheen's character, and what better way to say goodbye than at a memorial with all of exes in attendance? Yes, RIP Charlie Harper, he who slipped on a Metro platform and fell in front of an oncoming train, according to Rose (Melanie Lynskey).
After his death, Charlie's place is for sale, considering he barely had anything left in his account and had three mortgages on the house. John Stamos, Thomas Gibson and Jenna Elfman (Dharma & Greg!) all showed up to look at the house, but in the end, Kutcher's Walden Schmidt is the new owner of la casa de Harper. But not before he caused Alan (Cryer) to spill Charlie's remains all over the living room. Yeah, that happened. How did Jake (Angus T. Jones) deal with his pain? Easy, he farted it away!
Yes, Kutcher finally made his debut as the suicidal, heartbroken Internet billionaire Walden. And what a debut, he was soaking wet in his first scene! Team WWK approves of this scene. Oh wait, it gets better. He soon takes off his wet clothes! When did Two and a Half Men become our new favorite show? Oh right, when Kutcher's abs became the star. The episode ended with a naked Kutcher telling Alan he'll buy the house and telling Jake, "Welcome to my humble abode."
When it was announced that Kutcher would be joining the cast of Two and a Half Men, he released a statement saying, "I can't replace Charlie Sheen but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!"
So did Kutcher entertain the hell of you? Will you be tuning in to see more Men this season? The time has come, TV fans, to make a choice. Vote in our Save It or Sink It poll, and then defend your opinion and debate with others in the comments!
