    Synopsis


    Season one of the CBS sitcom The King of Queens introduces the world to blue-collar delivery truck driver Doug Heffernan (Kevin James) and his white-collar wife, Carrie (Leah Remini), who works for a New York law firm. Comfortably ensconced in their home in Queens, NY, Doug and Carrie are a happy couple -- especially Doug, who in his basement has set up his own private "domain," complete with the 70-inch television that his wife has bought him. This blissful situation evaporates when Carrie's widowed, tactless, constantly kvetching dad, Arthur Spooner (Jerry Stiller), moves in with the Heffernans and immediately takes over the basement, forcing Doug and his buddies Deacon (Victor Williams), Spence (Patton Oswalt), and Richie (Larry Romano) to use the garage as their new hang-out headquarters. Even worse, Carrie's irresponsible sister, Sara Spooner (Lisa Rieffel), a would-be actress, has all but moved into Doug's bathroom (but only for a few episodes, after which Sara disappears without explanation or fanfare). During the rest of the season, Doug begins to grow a bit jealous of Carrie's fast-lane Manhattan lifestyle; more relatives (mostly Doug's) invade the sanctity of the Heffernan home; Arthur tries gamely to be "one of the guys," generally causing more trouble than he's worth; Doug and Carrie attend adult-education classes, with disastrous results; the Heffernans clash with their uptight new neighbors, the Sackseys; and Ray Barone (Ray Romano) of Everybody Loves Raymond fame pays a visit to his friend and kindred spirit Doug. At season's end, and despite worries that their careers won't allow it, Doug and Carrie consider having a baby. ~ Hal Erickson

      Good show, good DVD set

      This is one of those shows that isn't going to go down into the hallows of greatest sitcoms ever, or being a first choice to buy a DVD set of, but its instead one of those shows that when its on TV in widespread syndication, you sit down for 30 minutes and have a good laugh. This was Kevin James' breakthrough and he is a charming, funny lead who isn't that bad of a actor (Quite good actually and better actor than Seinfeld or Ray Romano will ever be) and has some great chemistry with Leah Remini as his wife and Jerry Stiller as his father in law. With some funny writing, standard sitcom tropes and a good cast, its actually one of the better shows to actually own on DVD, just not a great as Community but then again, it doesn't have to be. All the DVD's contain some good PQ with most of the seasons shot in 1.33 full frame faithfully replicating their broadcast quality with season 9 being in 1.78 and also being faithful to the original series. The audio is your standard 2.0 stereo track and does its job. And the extras are almost non existant with season one and two only containing major extras. Season one contains a commentary over the pilot with Kevin James and a producer, a featurette, a compilation of the funniest scenes of season 1 and two bonus episodes from season 2 and 3 which are quite redundant. Season 2 contains a commentary over one episode and a mediocre featurette. Seasons 3-9 only contain previews. The packaging is also very flimsy and lousy with a plastic hub holding all 27 discs, so be careful. Other than that, this is a good value, filled with hours of laughs, decent PQ and AQ and some okay extras over the first two seasons but don't expect anything like Seinfeld's quality sets.

      Great Series, OK Packaging

      I love this series. It's hilarious and a show that my family enjoys watching with me. The show itself is great, my only issue is with the packaging etc- but you get what you pay for here. It's a great deal for the discs. 27 discs from $25 on sale to $40 regular is great. The discs don't have a lot of bonus features to them, with the exception of the last disc which is all bonus features. Also, I believe that some of the episodes are out of order on the discs, but I'm not completely sure. If you're looking for extras, this set probably isn't for you. Now onto the packaging itself. The outer ('paper') box is great- Doug on one side; Arthur,Carrie and Doug together on the other two sides. The disc holders for lack of a better term has all three (Arthur,Carrie,Doug); Spence and Danny on other; Carrie alone; view of some trees/street since it opens out to have the house on the next view. Now the disc holders are two black boxes of sorts. They're basically those stacked disc holders. They come with cardboard pieces to help keep the discs in place, making it a pain to dig out a specific disc. If you're somebody that likes to watch shows over and over you probably don't want this set, unless you have a good method of storing discs for easy use, and aren't too picky about keeping the cases and what not together like I am. Bottom line- Great series, but you get what you pay for with this set.

      The discs do touch each other in the case (stacked on top of each other over a ring to hold the discs). If you are not okay with discs touching each other, do not buy it. Does become difficult to keep the discs organized. We don't regret buying it and may collect the truck DVD set someday (felt it was overpriced). We haven't experienced skipping so far! We watch random episodes for this reason (the discs are stacked upon each other) instead of watching them in chronological order. We will watch it over and over again! We love this series! We love this set! Remember, the final season has one less disc than the rest. I thought there was a disc missing!

      Good Show

      This is a really good show, and this collection was definitely worth the low price that Best Buy is selling it for. The only problem is that I'm not to fond of the packaging. When you open the case there is a plastic holder on each side, each of which has half the discs staked on top of each other. As soon as I opened the case, one of the plastic holders pulled right off the case. I had to re-glue it on, and it's holding on for now, but we'll see for how long. Still, King of Queens is a great comedy, and the set is worth getting.

      I just couldn't pass up on the great deal I got on this. The whole run of the show in compact packing. My copy showed up undamaged (that alone is a big plus with on-line DVD orders). The packing is of the "stacked" variety but all DVD discs have inner hub rings to keep them spaced apart and I don't understand why so many complain about discs being packed this way. I will agree, you have to rotate the discs up the spindle as you view them and that does suck but the tradeoff is acceptable to me. It's actually two spindles as the box opens in the middle, so that does help with rotating the discs.

      This is a great show I never get tired of watching! Kevin James and Leah Remini play off each other with great comic timing in a way that makes them convincing as a married couple dealing humorously with the situations of middle class life. Jerry Stiller is great as Arthur, and the rest of the supporting characters nicely fill out the show, adding more quirks and ridiculous situations into the mix. Overall, the quality of the set itself is good. The only complaint I have with it is that all the discs are in two stacks, which makes it a bit difficult to quickly get out the one you want and also to keep them in order.

      Great Content, So-So Packaging

      What can you say... if you're a big King Of Queens fan it's a must-have. Every episode from every season and a few extras at a bargain price. The discs are exactly the same as the "Special Edition" version. The only possible issue is the packaging. In this low-cost version, all 27 DVD's are stacked on 2 spindles making it a bit of a hassle to quickly locate a particular disc. Unless you plan on watching your episodes in the order they're packaged it wouldn't be a bad idea to store the discs in a CD/DVD wallet for easy access. Other than that, no complaints!

      This show is just cute and fun to watch. Kevin James and Leah have a natural chemistry of a husband and wife who have been married a while but love each other. Most of the plots deal with problems that married couples deal with. Like Doug not always loving his job or Carrie trying to find the right job for her. Arthur, Carrie's dad is hilarious and funny but also goes to show that family is family. Although annoying at times adds love and appreciation for carrying for a family member whose lost a spouse. Love the show and just good for a laugh.
