Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen, FX
Charlie Sheen fondly recalls his former series Two and a Half Men by selecting his 24 favorite episodes for special 12-hour Men marathon this Thursday, June 28 from 9 AM-9:00 PM on FX. The Two and a Half Men marathon will lead into the launch of FX's highly anticipated summer comedy block which kicks off with two back-to-back episodes of Sheen's new comedy series Anger Management at 9 PM and 9:30 PM. Afterwards, the laughs continue with the season two premiere of Wilfred at 10 PM, the season three premiere of Louie at 10:30 PM, and the debut of Brand X with Russell Brand at 11 PM. (All times are ET/PT.)
Of his episode selections for the special Two and a Half Men marathon, Sheen said:
I've said, it's not how you start, it's how you finish. Being tasked with the opportunity of picking my favorite 24 episodes presented a scenario that was quite the opposite. As I culled through the mass of shows, eight-plus years, I was met with a theme of innocence.
I felt lighter, younger. I could still hear the jokes, and the stories we all told in place of rehearsals. I can still see nine-year-old Angus riding his Razor up and down the camera aisle; his self-appointed surrogate guardian Chuck Lorre watching with pride and also concern. I can hear the echoes of Jon's genius, Conchata's laugh, Holland's leadership and Marin's quiet grace. And the crew, the amazing crew.
These are the memories that I take from this epic time. Not necessarily the work, but the experiences, the friendships created instantly and over time. I hope viewers share a similar feeling or two and a lot of laughs when they tune in. Who cares how it ended; when it was good, it was great. We were in the middle of something big, the return of the sitcom. We were hungry and we were winning.
