Two and a Half Men fares better with its variation on a theme.

"Two and a Half Men, after only one episode, already feels like Full House Redux: cool and crazy Uncle Charlie uses his nephew as a ""chick magnet,"" Jake plays cards with Charlie's seedy poker buddies, and -- you guessed it -- the little tyke cleans up. I'd bet money that soon we'll be seeing Uncle Charlie, the bungling bachelor, burn a TV dinner. If you watch it on a black and white TV and squint you might mistake Two and a Half Men for Love That Bob. But at least Bob Cummings' energy kept you engaged. Sadly, the same can't be said for Sheen's somnambulant performance. While I wouldn't expect him to bring anything approximating Andy Dick's manic energy to the role, a little enthusiasm would be nice in Two and a Half Men. If Uncle Charlie is supposed to be a boy in a man's body, how about exhibiting some youthful exuberance? Sadly, as well, Sheen's newly paunchy appearance makes it a little hard to believe him as the ""ladies' man"" he's reputed to be. In the premiere, one woman was all over him in his bedroom, another was stalking him, and a couple more hit on him in the grocery store. Such ostensible popularity with the opposite sex suggests a charisma and physicality that isn't borne out in Sheen's character or performance. "
