The Trouble with Normal

Show Summary

The Trouble with Normal follows the lives of four men and their therapist as they try to face the fears of the world while living in crazy New York. Bob, the most normal one, is just trying to get some help with how to handle his personal life. Zack is Bob's new neighbor who thinks he is constantly being watched and that the world is after him. Stansfield is a very insecure mailman who finds himself constantly wanting to please people. Max is the shyest of them all, but all he really wants is a friendly shoulder to rely on. Claire, their therapist, tries to not be driven crazy with this group. She is supposed to be their advisor, but most of the time she is the one who is advised as the guys keep nosing themselves into her life. The show's original name was "People Who Fear People," but it was changed just a few weeks before its premiere. The Trouble with Normal is produced by Garfield Grove in association with Touchstone Television / Paramount Network Televisionmoreless

  • I liked it, and I think it had a lot of potential.

    When I first watched the pilot episode on Paramount Comedy 1 a couple of years back, I thought it was great. Jon Cryer really stood out as the paranoid Zack Mango and anyone who has seen Two and a Half Men know what a great talent he is.

    This is not to say that he is the only talent in The Trouble with Normal, the whole cast are funny in their own right. David Krumholtz is funny as 'the almost normal, but still quite paranoid' Bob, as is Larry Joe Campbell as the insecure Stansfield, and Brad Raider has his moments as Max. Plus of course, Paget Brewster is great as their therapist Claire. Still, out of all of them, Jon Cryer seems to steal the show as Zack.

    I truly think that if it was given more of a chance it would have gone a lot further. Call me crazy, but that is my opinion.
