This could be a very good comedy. It's funny, it's as familiar as small-town america could possibly be and Norm McDonald is, no doubt a pleasure. However, I think Norm McDonald playing an upstanding citizen with a loving wife and a desire to do good, is not our favorite Norm McDonald, Norm's deadpan delivery works better when he's a character without any lofty ideals but who's head is filled with things like horniness, revenge, and slacking on the job. The Norm we saw in "Dirty Work" and "Norm" would never run for mayor. Don't get me wrong, I still like the show and it makes me laugh, but for some odd reason Norm seems like the straight man here and the rest of the characters in this cooky town are the jokes. Hopefully, we'll see Norm get a little zanier too as time goes on, who knows. Either way, i'm willing to stay tuned to find out.
