Default The Norm Show/Norm - The Complete Series DVD Review

From Norm MacDonald and executive producer Bruce Helford (creator of The Drew Carey Show) comes this warped look at a pro hockey player turned criminal turned social worker.

Meet Norm Henderson. Once a fairly well-known – but not particularly skilled – professional hockey player, Norm had a penchant for gambling and an aversion to paying taxes that resulted in his expulsion from hockey for life. Facing a possible jail term, Norm was instead sentenced to community service as a caseworker in social services, where his mischievous and sarcastic personality has him breaking all the rules, leaving his friends – by the book coworker Laurie (Laurie Metcalf, Roseanne) and neurotic colleague Danny (Ian Gomez, Cougar Town) – to completely help him out of trouble. Also starring Max Wright (ALF) as Norm’s boss Mr. Denby, Nikki Cox (Las Vegas) as Taylor the ex-prostitute social worker and Artie Lange (The Howard Stern Show, Dirty Work) as Norm’s crooked if not crazy half-brother – smart, edgy, dry comedy was the norm.

Airing from 1999-2001, Norm was a well-liked sitcom that ultimately fell victim to the axe at ABC too soon - but you can now own it on DVD thanks to the fine folks at Shout! Factory.

I don't know about the rest of the episodes, but Norm vs. Dad had a running time of 19:31 when it aired originally so that one is unedited. There was a promo at the end of the episode talking about a contest where you could send in a joke and have it used in a future episode of Norm which ran about 40 seconds so that's probably why that episode was so short.

One of the best and most underrated sitcoms of all time. It's never been syndicated ( at least that I know of)so this will probably be the only way to see it again.

Default UNAIRED ep not included in set

The UNAIRED epiosde "What Men Want" is also missing from the 3rd season disks in this set. It was filmed, but never aired because of the show's cancellation.
If anyone has any more info on this ep., besides the epiosde summary found here:;summary

Norm continues to use his ability to read men's minds until a static shock at the worst possible time.

please let us know.

VERY cute show. I like almost everything that he's done !
How long a minute is, depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on.
