For those of you wondering how “Two and a Half Men” is going to end on CBS, you did not get many answers during the network’s winter TCA panel on Monday night.
Instead, what you got instead from network programming head Nina Tassler came in two words: “Mystery sandwich.” That is how Chuck Lorre is apparently describing the show’s final episode, which may or may not feature a cameo from original series star Charlie Sheen. It’s almost funny how given this show’s silly nature and reliance on fart jokes, they suddenly having a veil of secrecy that is such, it is almost comparable to a season of “Lost” or “Game of Thrones.”
With a show like “Two and a Half Men,” we’re not expecting things to end a la Shakespeare. There are going to be those who like the episode, those who hate it, and those in between. That is the nature of all series-ending episodes these days. The only thing that we can really hope for with confidence is that they justify the show being on the air for so long.
We will at least say that we’ve enjoyed in theory what Lorre has done the past two years with trying to make the show a little more serialized, since it gives you the feel that they are trying to tell a longer story. If only they had grown up the show a little bit more in the process, we’d almost go so far as to say that the new “Two and a Half Men” is better than the old one.
