TV show description:
Charlie Goodson (Charlie Sheen) is a non-traditional therapist who specializes in anger management. He has a successful private practice and holds sessions with his group of primary patient regulars each week. He also hosts pro bono counseling sessions for an inmate group at a state prison.
Prior to his becoming a therapist, Charlie was a stalled minor league baseball prospect. His road to the majors was sidetracked by his own struggle with anger issues. After a stint in therapy with the team’s psychologist, Kate Wales (Selma Blair), he made it to the majors and had one terrific season before his anger issues put him on the shelf for good. In the final game of his career, he tried to snap a bat over his leg, which resulted in a career-ending injury. That injury led him back to school and his current profession.
Charlie thrives on the chaos in his life while still battling his own anger issues. His life is complicated by his relationships with his therapist/best friend/sex partner Kate; his beautiful ex-wife Jennifer (Shawnee Smith) — whose positive outlook, but poor choice in men, frustrates Charlie; and their 13-year-old daughter, Sam (Daniela Bobadilla), who has OCD.
On top of that, he has to try to help his patients, like Patrick (Michael Arden), who have plenty of problems of their own. Lacey (Noureen DeWulf) is a spoiled rich girl who’s sent to join Charlie’s group after she shot her cheating boyfriend. Nolan (Derek Richardson) has the strangest anger issue of all — he has no anger.
