When Charlie almost beats his ex-wife's boyfriend (Brian Austin Green) with a lamp after an anger relapse, he decides he needs to go back to therapy. Unfortunately, he is currently having sex with the only therapist he trusts: his best friend Kate. Since the number-one rule of therapy is not to have sexual relations with patients, Charlie must choose between his love of sex and his need for help. Written by Jiilo_Kim

Charlie Goodson: I almost lost it yesterday.
Cleo: Oh, honey, I remember when I lost it. It was a world of pain.
Charlie Goodson: Okay, I'm pretty sure we're talking about two different things. What I mean is, I almost gave into a black rage.
Cleo: No, we're talking about the same thing.

User Reviews

Cheesy and horribly acted, but I still liked it.
26 June 2014 | by humboltsquidSee all my reviews

I have very little to say about this TV show. I discovered it while browsing films that had been released by Twisted Pictures. To see that this came from them quite frankly amazes me. Whether in a good way or a bad way, I'm not quite sure yet, but I should probably get to the actual review.

The show is absolute trash. Everything from the writing to the acting is absolute crap. For some reason that I just can't explain though, I enjoyed watching it. I suppose it's one of those train wreck deals where it's absolutely horrible to watch, but you just can't stop.

Did I enjoy this for some odd reason? Yes. Would I recommend it to anyone who wants anything halfway decent to watch. Absolutely not.
