Two and a Half Men (2003)
The Ashton version is really not a bad show after all, IMO.
Big Surprise! Two And A Half Men has been renewed for another season in 2012-13! The Ashton Kutcher version is really not a bad show, in my opinion, despite it being unfairly maligned early-on. The writing has gotten a bit campier without that fine line, 'jumping the shark' IMO; Alan has become a more neurotic, scheming, weasel freeloader and his son Jake has teamed up with Eldridge, Alan's girlfriend's son, to become a sort of Beavis & Butthead-style sideshow. I continue to watch the Charlie Sheen syndicated reruns in "historical perspective", but it's obviously time to move on. Life itself marches on. These 2.5 MEN writers are obviously talented and are up for the challenge of their principal player jumping ship. As of the 5/14/12 Monday episode, Jake and Edly have joined the ARMY! LOL! I can't wait to see how the writers return Jake to Malibu to maintain the integrity of the show's title "2.5 MEN"! LOL!
I originally saw Silence Of The Lambs when released on VHS video in the early 90s. This week, I acquired a DVD of SOTL. Despite the so-so reviews I've read about Hannibal, I got that DVD too so I could watch these two films back-to-back in one sitting. I like film series, generally. Hannibal was a well-made film and worthy sequel to SOTL.
Julianne does a fine job as Clarice...but...I have a hard time getting past Julie's different look from Jodie as FBI agent Clarice. It's distracting! Seems to me that the VERY LEAST they could've done was color Julie's red hair to brunette as a token attempt to make her look more like the original Jodie actress.
I'm SO glad they didn't hire another actor to play Hannibal! Tony IS Hannibal, period, and casting another actor in that role would've been pure sacrilege! Even sillier than casting Mickey Rooney as an Asian in Breakfast At Tiffany's ;-)
