get this show out on DVD, 28 August 2006
Author: drawler from glasgow, scotland

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.
