"Two and a Half Men": Lame, Lame, Lame, Lame

Those of you who watch “Two and a Half Men” know its signature theme song:

“Men, men, men, men. Manly men, men, men…”

Well tonight, that theme should have been changed to “lame, lame, lame, lame. Man, this is so lame…”

I said in my Pick of the Week post that the “Two and a Half Men”-“CSI” writers’ switch would either be one of the most clever sweeps stunts ever or one of the lamest.

After part one, I would definitely put it in the latter category.

Warning: If you have not seen tonight’s episode of “Two and a Half Men,” stop reading now.

First off, where was the explanation? Other than using the “CSI” theme song and a small cameo by George Eads, there was no real explanation for the sudden injection of “CSI”-style flashbacks.

So they didn’t make sense.

And quite frankly, the ones detailing Jake’s stomach were pretty gross.

And the sudden revelation that Evelyn’s new husband and stepdaughter were con artists? It was just too quantum leapish to actually work. “Men” is a sitcom. It’s not meant to have a real plot.

I still plan to watch “CSI” Thursday just to see how this thing ends up. But so far, I’m really hoping that CBS keeps its writers on their own shows from now on…
