Finally, it was time for Anger Management to make its debut on Comedy Central. As mentioned in our earlier post Charlie Sheen was all set to return with a new show ‘Anger Management’ on Comedy Central. Charlie Sheen was last seen in Two and a Half Men which was aired on Star World. But the production house did let him go and replaced him with a new character. They must be kicking themselves, as Anger Management seems to be an interesting show which can revive Charlie’s career and have more fans around him than before.
He plays a therapist trying to come to peace with his troubled past and learns from mistakes. You might say that it is typical Charlie Sheen. This character allows him to almost apologize for real-life behaviour on a weekly basis. The first episode of this series opened with Charlie Goodson aka Charlie Sheen addressing three men in his living room about healthy aggression. This means that his is an Anger Management Therapist and the 3 characters in the room are his patients.
During this session it gets clear that Charlie Goodson was once a baseball player with severe anger issues and anger took away something that he really loved. And to make things more worse he is also a divorcee father. His daughter, Sam Goodson, played by Daniela Bobadilla, is a complete contrast to Charlie’s character as she is a polite and innocent personality. It is interesting to see that there is an admirable connection between the two.
As things are settling down, Charlie Sheen’s real side comes into light when he gets into an affair with Selma Blair (Kate Wales). Typical Charlie with ‘no emotions, no strings attached’ character comes in to play. Overall, the first episode was more of a story-telling type where focus was on introducing the characters and to set the plot of the story in place. Although there were moments which brought up smiles, but it still needs more punches. Well, i am sure that when the story builds up there would surely be more of such comic moments.
