Two and a Half Men will return for a 10th season.News reporting that stars Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones have all signed new contracts.
There's hope for Season 10.While Angus T. Jones' Jake seems like a lost cause, a character whose gone off the deep end into a bottomless pit of stupidity, the rest of the cast have the chops to bring the funny with their established characters. The solution is the show caring about those characters.
Two and a Half Men opts for lowbrow potty humor when it has a colorful ensemble to draw from. There's a distinct chasm between Alan and Walden, both men sporting their own strengths and flaws, but this season's episodes of Men pack so much zany plot, the relationship has barely been mined.
After nine seasons, Jake is finally graduating high school. At the beginning of the episode, Alan is harassing him about sleeping in until 2pm on a Sunday—he completely missed Saturday—because he'll never be successful if that's how he lives. That advice fails miserably when Walden walks in the kitchen, completely absent of clothes, and says good morning.
