Two and a Half Men has seen some huge changes before the start of its new season, which some of its fans know all about! Charlie Sheen, (star of Two and a Half Men, playing Charlie Harper) has been all over the news and magazines with his outbursts towards his co-workers. Due to his actions, he was removed from the show. The premiere began at Charlie's funeral, and ended with Ashton Kutcher purchasing Charlie's beach house.

Of course, everyone has their own opinions about this. Some are thrilled to see Ashton on the show; others are upset about Charlie's leaving and don't think he should be replaced. And, whether you like it or not, it seems that's exactly what Ashton is doing - replacing Charlie.

Throughout the episode, Alan interacted with Ashton. They went to a bar, and, like Charlie, he returned home with two young ladies on his arms. Ashton, who played a very sad character at the beginning, has turned into Charlie - a rich ladies man.

This leads me to believe that Ashton is the new Charlie. Though many like the idea, I personally do not. Charlie has been such a huge part of the show, and to completely replace him with a character exactly like him seems wrong. I love Ashton and truly believe he's a great actor, but I certainly wasn't happy with the way the premiere turned out.

Unfortunately, that's the way it is. I wasn't happy to hear that Charlie left, but I thought it wouldn't be so bad with him gone. But to have his character replaced by almost the same thing? I just don't like it.

Of course, because of the situation, they needed someone to take Charlie's place. I think that this is just a temporary solution, a way to finally end the series. I can't imagine the ratings being very good, but there are people out there who think it's even better than before. So, at this point, it's all up in the air. Will Ashton win the viewers' hearts? Or will the ratings fall, leading to the end of the series? We'll have to wait and see!
