User Reviews

It didn't meet my expectations
22 October 2012 | by RBRNSSee all my reviews

We all have seen the downfall of Two and a Half Men. Charlie Sheen left the show and Ashton Kutchter tried, but couldn't fill the void Charlie Sheen left behind. We all had to accept that Two and a Half Men would never be the same.

Then I heard about a new show called Anger Management starring Charlie Sheen! I couldn't wait to see this show and I had high hopes that the show would be as good as Two and a Half Men with Charlie Sheen.

I sat down, watched the first episode and was truly flabbergasted. It didn't even come close to my expectations, but I decided to watch some more episodes and at least give it a fighting chance.

I saw Charlie Sheen being surrounded by some B-actors, who were funny at times but didn't come close to Jon Cryer(Alan Harper) and Angus T. Jones(Jake Harper). Don't misunderstand me, Anger Management made me laugh at times, mostly because of Charlie Sheen, but it just couldn't meet my expectations.

Unfortunately I have to say Anger Management is just another average series. So don't expect it to be as good as Two and a Half Men was or you might just get disappointed.
