Hilarious!
9 November 2000 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

The Trouble with Normal is a funny and clever show. It centers around four paranoid guys and their therapist. The cast is great and the show has some great writing. Problems is the ratings aren't that good and ABC will be pulling the show off the schedule for sweeps. Who knows if it will make it back after that. It would be a shame if this show was cancelled.
