Woody has developed a disease: Home-Shopping-Channel-itis. He has just discovered the channel's existence, and can't stop buying stuff from it. He realizes the stuff he is buying is crap, but just can't help himself. Although it doesn't cure his desire, his credit card company helps him out as he is over his credit limit, forcing him to go cold turkey. Meanwhile, Norm and his accomplice Cliff have decided to be puppet masters by putting people in situations they know will cause a conflict. They first start with Rebecca and Carla with a work situation. Their next target is Sam and Frasier.

Actually a Criminal Act
3 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Apparently there was a time when Cliff and Norm used to do things to get others in trouble. In this episode, they start something between Carla and Rebecca. Not a big deal, but when Frasier comes into the bar with a group of psychologists, he tries to pay with his gold card. But Norm calls the credit card company and reports it stolen (this is a stretch, certainly). Anyway, Sam is forced to cut the card up and send the pieces to the company. Did anyone bother to think that Frasier is innocent here and should get his card replaced? It leads to some really hard feeling and the boys are contrite but cowardly. A subplot is Woody's obsession with the Home Shopping Network. He is maxing out his card and giving Rebecca lousy presents. It is true addiction. I just had trouble with the cruelty of the joke.
