Storyline

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 Mike Konczewski

One of the best sitcoms ever.
25 April 2017 | by OrangieTooDopeSee all my reviews

Norm MacDonald has always been underrated and misunderstood.He's one of the funniest people who ever lived and this show proves it. The series starts with Nikki Cox guest starring and they make you think she will be a regular but she just leaves. Early in the first season they realize the character of Norm's boss is going nowhere and they incorporate him leaving into an episode(although we never actually see him).Then they make the greatest decision ever,they bring in Max Wright as Max Denby and they have the formula for a great show. The second season sees the show change it's name.They also change the name of the bar they hang out in,although the exterior and interior appear to be the same.Nikki Cox returns, Faith Ford joins the cast and the show just gets better. The Norm Show(Norm) ran for 3 seasons and had 4 different opening sequences but weirdly,they used the exact same clip of a white van almost every time they needed a transition clip. The third season sees two very odd changes.The transition clips start to feature a guy scatting and they start dressing Laurie like a mentally challenged gypsy.I have recently found two other shows where the main female character started dressing completely different(usually almost always the same clothes,just different colors) in the third season,Still Standing and My Hero. I could talk about Norm all day but I won't.
