In the eyes of many, Two and a Half Men came to an end once Charlie Sheen left the show. The actor had chances to make things right, but at the time, he was in a different headspace. It would cause his exit from the show, and although he was rumored to return for the finale, that was not meant to be either.

Looking back, Sheen recognizes he could’ve taken a different approach and settled the differences.

“There was 55 different ways for me to handle that situation, and I chose number 56. And so, you know, I think the growth for me post-meltdown or melt forward or melt somewhere — however you want to label it — it has to start with absolute ownership of my role in all of it,” he said. “And it was desperately juvenile.”

Nowadays, Chuck Lorre is completely fine watching Two and a Half Men back. However, there was a period in time in which Lorre couldn’t handle the show just yet, given the burden it caused to his career, and also well-being.

Lorre explains, “It is really gratifying that what we made still works on some level. Time has passed and the episodes with Charlie are a joy to watch. There were a couple of years there where I couldn’t watch it. It was too hurtful.

He continues, “I can enjoy them all now. You know, he did a brilliant job. And the chemistry between him and Jon [Cryer] and Angus and Holland Taylor and, oh my goodness, Conchata Ferrell, who has passed away. It was a beautiful cast.”

Alongside CinemaBlend, Lorre revealed the goal for the show was to create one with a lasting legacy and that would go on for years. It seems like that’s exactly what the show became, an easy watch for the fans.

“I love that the body of work is sustainable. I didn’t set out to make Kleenex. We all set out to make silk hankies that you can wash and use again. And I love that, every once in a while, I will watch a Two and a Half Men rerun when Angus [T. Jones] was really little, and there was stuff I’d completely forgotten.”
