I understand that this is/was one of the US most popular programmes.

Having watched half an episode…Why?

Depends on the episode. It ranged from terrible to brilliant, much like its star

You have to watch the Charley Sheen version – early days at that

I tried to watch it twice. The second time was stupider than the first.

This was the Charlie Sheen version.

It was not funny

Uneven and sometimes ok

I've seen 10-15 mins 2 or 3 times now (I couldn't takemuch more), and basically it reminds me of beauty, in as much its like the sort of stuff you put in a rose bed to act as fertiliser.

How truly awful it is is signalled by the laugh track. I am not saying that because it uses canned laughter it is bad, I am saying it is so bad that the guy doing the laugh track doesn't know where the jokes are, so had inserted it after each line, even ones with no obvious joke, though it appears the cast were pausing after each line for the insert. This meant that when a line was vaguely amusing I missed it, having been innoculated by the over the top use.

The episodes with "Kandi" in are the best, and not just for the eye candy (pardon the pun). The Ashton episodes are pure "Kaka!!"

Roger.

Horrible show.

Not everyone gets the humor. Pretty lowbrow, but could be hilarious at times

I tried to watch it several times and found it vulgar and childish. I have never understood why it was so popular.

I never liked it. I've watched an episode or two.

Just because YOU didn't like it doesn't mean it wasn't funny. Different strokes and all that…

I love vulgar, i love childish, i love lowbrow.

But the show was the least funny thing i have ever seen Deleted by Moderator

Lots of nice looking women folk tho.

I've never seen it, but I got the gist of it from the various promos. I passed on it.

Nazrat,

Let's turn that around.

Just because YOU found it funny doesn't mean it was.

Having watched half an episode… Why?

First, ask yourself: who are these people who have nothing better to do than watch TV all day? evil grin

I actually started to love the show when Amber Tamber. . . Amby Tambly . . . Amber Tamblyn joined as Charlie's gay daughter. She was utterly brilliant as a female womaniser.

But then as a Kiwi, I had to love "Good night Rose" :)

I never got through more than a minute or two. It embodied most of the worst tropes of by-the-book sitcoms. As others posted, the laugh track was especially egregious.

1. Setup (laugh)
2. Punchline (big laugh)
3. Follow-up punchline (bigger laugh)
4. Insult/put down (huge laugh, applause, woot-woot)
5. Change channel

And Mad Magazine also had their version ,"Two And A Half Wits".
