5.0 out of 5 stars Two and A Half Men Season 8 - My two cents worth, May 8, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Two and a Half Men: Season 8 (DVD)
Let's remain objective. Facts: 1. This was a great show. 2. It ended up in a bad note. It is a pity that there was conflict between the cast and the producers. However, the producers decided to pull the show, affecting not only the cast, but the viewers, and the consumer should not suffer for it. I agree with a previous reviewer who asked, why should we pay full price for a shortened season. Let's do the math. According to Amazon.com, the MSRP for a 22-episode season of Two and a Half Men is 44.98 (see previous seasons), that is approximately $2.05 per episode. Now, there were only 16 episodes in season 8, that should add up to $32.80 at the most ($2.05 x 16). Also, I love Amazon, but if they are charging $27.49 for previous seasons (see seasons 5, 6, and 7) which is 61% of MSRP, then it follows that they should also charge 61% of the MSRP for this season, which should be no more than $20.01 for pre-ordering. That would be a fair price for this product. At this point, this item at $38.49 is overpriced, specially for pre-ordering, when consumers are supposed to have an advantage for being on the cutting edge. Hope someone is listening. Two and a Half Men was a wonderfully coocky show, and I would like to complete my collection, but I will buy this product at a later date when the price is right.

Update: Have you noticed that Amazon has lowered the pre-order price to $29.99. Good for you Amazon! I know you care about your customers. However, all the other seasons are down to $18.99 at the most. Now, bring down the price of this season another $11, and I am in. :)

Charlie, without you the show is dead. Charlie, Jon, Angus, and Rose thank you for so many years of laughter and some incredibly funny situations. I will enjoy watching my DVDs over and over again. Wishing you well. Mari

I totally agree Season 8 should be $20 - $25 tops.
I intntend to Boycott the show since Charlie will not be back.
I'm guessing Charlie will be killed off, AK will turn up as his lost son.
CBS you've lost 100 viewers among my friends alone.
SMARTEN UP BRING BACK CHARLIE.

Why should it cost so much for only part of a season?
I only paid $19.00 approx. for about 3 seasons, then they went up.
I agree the cost should only be $25.00 tops.

I will still watch show because the co-stars are great and love Angus T. Jones.

It's not going to be Two & a Half Men without Charlie, I will NOT be watching, CHARLIE made the Show, without Charlie No Show, simple as that.
Ashton Kutchner no WAY.
BRING BACK CHARLIE!! OR CBS HAS LOST ITS MONEYMAKER.

I'm very sure he wouldn't hire you either for anything. get him some rehab like all the other Hollywood types, and continue the show for 3 more seasons which I believe Charlie is already signed up for.
If not kill the show, Charlie stood up to get the co-stars paid, now its time THEY stood up and said we woun't work without Charlie. Get a spine Co-Stars.

I totally agree that Charlie made the show what it was, and we won't be watching it anymore in my family. With the way it ended I wouldn't spend 29 or 28 dollars.

He has got him self straightened out, HE made the show what it is today, the #1 Comedy, with AK it will be done, finished also AK only took a 1 season contract, that shows how much faith he has in his own acting.

Thank You for pointing out that the last season, season 8, (the real show!) is much shorter than the others. Now that I've found that out I'm not sure if I will buy or not. I might just to complete my set, especially with the new reduced price, but I have to admit the story-lines in the 8th season weren't the best. The writers seemed to have run out of material! The cast is as spot on and hysterical as ever though. Will not watch nor buy any of the new seasons with Ashton K..
