Norm Show: The Complete Series, The (DVD Review)9 Sep, 2010 By: John Latchem
$59.97 eight-DVD set
Stars Norm Macdonald, Laurie Metcalf, Ian Gomez, Faith Ford, Max Wright, Artie Lange.
After developing a cult following during years of hosting “Weekend Update” for “Saturday Night Live,” Norm Macdonald had to take his trademark sarcasm and dry wit somewhere. The result was the underrated 1999-2001 sitcom “The Norm Show” (later shortened to “Norm”), in which Macdonald starred as a thinly veiled version of himself doing community service as a social worker to avoid prison.
Macdonald is typically hilarious, and anyone who is a fan of his will want to pick up this boxed set. It contains all 54 episodes and commentaries by Macdonald and executive producer Bruce Helford.
