I've been watching "Norm" since its debut in 1999, and haven't stopped watching it. I think it's one of the most underrated shows, and one of the funniest shows (if not THE funniest show) on the air.
One of my favorite episodes is the one where Danny's father dies, and Danny discovers that his dad was gay. Another hilarious one is where Danny gets a toupee. These episodes prove that "Norm" IS funny.
The cast is clever, consisting of supporting actors/actresses who were in other series: Max Wright ("ALF"), Faith Ford ("Murphy Brown"), Laurie Metcalf ("Roseanne"), and Ian Gomez ("Drew Carey Show" and "Felicity") to name a few.
Leaving "Saturday Night Live" to do "Norm" was a smart move for Norm MacDonald. And there is little that I would like better than to see this series obtain longevity. It deserves a good, long run. And I would honestly like to see "Norm" stay on the air for at least five or six years.
