Charlie Sheen selects favorite “Two and a Half Men” episodes for FX marathon

As his new FX series Anger Management gets set to debut this Thursday, June 28, Charlie Sheen will be taking a look back at his former series, Two and a Half Men, when FX presents a 12-hour marathon of Sheen’s 24 favorite episodes of Men on Thursday from 9am-9pm, leading into the series premiere of Anger Management.


“I’ve said, it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish,” Sheen says, about the process of selecting the Two and a Half Men episodes for this marathon. “Being tasked with the opportunity of picking my favorite 24 episodes presented a scenario that was quite the opposite. As I culled through the mass of shows, eight-plus years, I was met with a theme of innocence.

“I felt lighter, younger. I could still hear the jokes, and the stories we all told in place of rehearsals. I can still see 9-year-old Angus riding his Razor up and down the camera aisle; his self-appointed surrogate guardian Chuck Lorre watching with pride and also concern.  I can hear the echoes of Jon’s genius, Conchata’s laugh, Holland’s leadership and Marin’s quiet grace. And the crew, the amazing crew.

“These are the memories that I take from this epic time.  Not necessarily the work, but the experiences, the friendships created instantly and over time. I hope viewers share a similar feeling or two and a lot of laughs when they tune in. Who cares how it ended; when it was good, it was great. We were in the middle of something big, the return of the sitcom. We were hungry and we were winning.”
