Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Charlie Sheen may have left that Malibu beach apartment, but his influence is still there.
That's according to at least one “Two and a Half Men” viewer who tells Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky that he tuned into the CBS sitcom and was upset to discover that the show is still holding to a format that had been fading for more than a season.
More than that, he complained, the series' off screen difficulties caught his attention so firmly he tuned away from an exciting football game “to watch that thing.”
Sokolsky says there is one obvious way to avoid that problem in the future. However, he points out, the series is starting to exhibit several of the same woes that attach themselves to most shows and personalities who overstay their times. And in this case they would have come up with or without the show's personnel troubles.
But, Sokolsky points out, there are antidotes for such situations –in this case like a few slant patterns or maybe a field goal.
