Critic Consensus: Anger Management is aggressively so-so, with thin characters and a few groan-worthy gags for every good one.

Tv Season Info

Charlie Goodson (Charlie Sheen) is a ballplayer-turned-therapist specializing in anger issues who also battles them himself. The first series finds him treating a group of regulars on a weekly basis, counseling prison inmates pro bono and of course dealing with some complicated relationships. Charlie's own therapist is his best friend Kate (Selma Blair), who's also his lover; his ex-wife Jennifer (Shawnee Smith) still plays a major role in his life; and their teenage daughter Sam (Daniela Bobadilla) has OCD issues.

Critic Reviews for Anger Management Season 1

Charlie Sheen hasn't lost his chops. It helps that his new agreeable-enough comedy on FX, Anger Management, mirrors his previous one, Two and a Half Men.

[The producers] have failed to uphold their usual high standards, having not mastered the calculus of delivering the boorishness for which Sheen loyalists thirst while simultaneously tinkering with themes of redemption.

If the series was actually a disaster, that might at least be captivating, but as is, "Anger Management" is just an average sitcom with a few good laugh lines here and there.

Jun 28, 2012 | Full Review…

Anger Management, [Charlie Sheen's] new sitcom, is kind of a mirror image of Sheen: scabrously, outrageously funny at times and monotonously one-note at others.

Only committed Sheen fans will be enticed to stay beyond the initial curiosity tune-in.

Not great comedy.

You know everything you need to know about this series. It's Charlie Sheen in a laugh-tracked three-camera sitcom, which is different for FX, but not really taking advantage of cable boundaries in the ways that Two and a Half Men couldn't.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

It's not raunchy enough. It's not gritty enough. It's not Sheen enough.

Jun 28, 2012 | Rating: 6.4/10 | Full Review…

Acting in a lazy, stiff, laugh-track sitcom is Charlie Sheen doing something for himself and his corporate partners. That's all.

Jun 28, 2012 | Full Review…

Sheen, "Anger" showrunner Bruce Helford and FX have created a show so lazy in its ambitions I want to call Sheen up and remind him that he blasted "Two and a Half Men" for its easy setups and cheap punch lines.
