Norm Henderson is an ex-hockey player who was banned from hockey for life for gambling and tax evasion. Now he must do five years of community service as a social worker, or go to prison. His co-workers are a collection of burn-outs, and basically inept losers, with one exception, Laurie, who ends up spending a lot of time trying to bail out Norm. Written by
Large numbers of people tuned in to the first show, believing it to be a spin-off of Cheers (1982). See more »
[after learning that Norm decided to take it easy on insulting, Mr. Denby if he wouldn't fire his friends]

ABOUT TIME THIS SHOW WAS ON DVD. Pretty much the best comedy to come out of America since cheers and the simpsons.
Fantastic FUNNY gags. The writing is excellent. Brilliant deadpan delivery. The cast are fantastic. Cutting edge humour abounds. Often on the verge of politically incorrectness, it pushes the boundary every now an then.
Has been unfairly treated by network executives in the us and the uk who don't understand comedy. They wouldn't know good comedy if it jumped up and tickled them in the ribs.
Why was it ever cancelled? No other comedy makes me smile and laugh as much as Norm/The Norm Show. Its time to get this out on DVD and for everyone to re-appraise it.
