I WILL FOLLOW CONCHATA FERRELL
The headline read: "TWO AND A HALF MEN SHUTS DOWN" and I breathed a sigh of relief. They were finally going to put the injured sitcom out of it's misery. However the article went on to say: "...suspended for the remainder of the season" and I knew at some point they were going to attempt revival once more. Too many people hang their hats on an alcoholic druggie.
While the supporting cast has been carrying this one time favorite show of mine, they each are beginning to injure their own acting ability trying to pick up the slack for Charlie Sheen. Little Jake is little no longer and his cuteness is gone. Poor Alan appears full of more and more desperation on each episode and Evelyn is aging too rapidly from the stress. Rose already has a separate acting career so she doesn't need the show and they just use her for filler anyway. Only one character has remained stable in the original role and that is Berta played by Conchata Ferrell. I am hoping another show will pick her up and get her going again in a limelight she deserves.
No, I don't really care about what is going on in Hollywood but once in a while I get a little carried away with a weekly TV show like I did with CHEERS and it fills me with separation anxiety as I witness the beginning of the end. Yes, I know there is more to life...
