Where are the laughs?
26 November 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I keep watching the show in the hopes of some good belly laughs . . . nothing yet. This is the worst episode so far, nothing funny. Please give us more Jake and less Walden who has got to be the unfunny character in the show.

There were so many different ways to replace Charlie, but I mean really a rich guy letting Alan live with him is nonsense. First rule of comedy is be believable. What's happened to Alan? He's become a complete moron of a moocher, with no shame at all. He barely even tries to hide his intentions. Sadly it is becoming clear that the chemistry that existed between Charlie, Alan and Jake is what made the show work, why? They were a dysfunctional family.

There really is no reason for this show to be.
