    Just re-hashing the obvious about 2 1/2 men. The show in it's present state is floundering and not likely to survive much longer. If it had remained on the premise of the original show. Men trying to survive relationships despite their faults. The current storyline should have been for another show. Perhaps 2 1/2 vaginas. I'm sorry that currently it has fallen into such shambles because it still has a lot of potential and talent.
