From Amazon.co.uk

In the sitcom The King of Queens, comedian Kevin James has created a new archetype: the sensitive lug. This deceptively simple comedy bounces along because delivery man Doug Heffernen (James), though completely a guy's guy, constantly struggles to keep the world around him in a delicate emotional balance. Meanwhile, his wife Carrie (Leah Remini), though utterly feminine (and one of the sexiest women on television), uses the kind of no-nonsense rational approach that's usually a man's province. Add to this mix Carrie's father Arthur (Jerry Stiller), whose life as a fussy, self-absorbed retiree makes him more like their child than an adult, and you've got the building blocks for an excellent and durable show.

The first season of The King of Queens quickly found its voice with stories firmly rooted in the everyday world, rarely spinning off into absurdity--and why should it, when there's such a wealth of humor to be found in petty neuroses (when Doug gets assigned an attractive young woman as a trainee at work, he gets hurt when Carrie isn't remotely jealous), ill-advised scheming (to weasel out of a traffic ticket, Carrie agrees to go out on a date with the cop who pulled her over), and juggling obligations to friends and family (just about every episode). Brilliant comic bits abound; one classic moment features Doug and Carrie having a furious argument in absolute silence at a cello concert--a scene that fuses deft physicality, well-developed characters, and sheer silliness. The King of Queens is a delight. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars THE KING OF QUEENS REIGNS SUPREME... 28 Dec 2003
By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is a value packed, well-priced, three disc DVD set that has the entire first season of this very funny show, including the pilot and two bonus shows for a total of twenty seven hilarious shows. Fans of Kevin James , Leah Remini, and Jerry Stiller will be in seventh heaven with this first season set. The show is sort of an updated "Honeymooners" and an absolute laugh riot. It is definitely a keeper and well worth having in one's collection.
Kevin James plays the role of the role of the portly, but adorable, Doug Heffernan, an International Parcel Service delivery guy and husband to the earthy and sexy Carrie (Leah Remini), who clearly rules the roost. They live in a modest house in Queens, one of the outer boroughs of New York City. Carrie's father, the idiosyncratic Arthur Spooner (Jerry Stiller), for reasons made clear in the pilot episode, also joins their household. His living with them adds to the many comedic moments of this popular television series. There is a funny group of friends, odd neighbors, and other assorted characters that drift in and out of the Heffernans' daily lives, adding to the comedic zest of this comedy series about middle class life in one of the outer boroughs of New York City.
The casting is perfect. The series is very funny with well written scripts and excellent performances by its very talented cast. What more can a viewer ask for? This is an excellent, value laden, three disc DVD set, replete with a pilot episode commentary by Kevin James and the show's creator, Executive Producer Michael Weithorn. This DVD set also has a feature in which the cast of the series takes the viewer behind the scenes, as they look back on and reminisce about the show's first season. All in all, this is a value priced DVD set with crisp, clear visuals and audio. It is absolutely one of my favorite comedies, and I am happy to have the entire first season. I look forward to getting the succeeding seasons, as they become available.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sure thing for lovers of top class sitcoms 14 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
Well here we have it, nearly 5 years after the release of the American Region of The King of Queens Season 1, it arrives on our shores with exactly the same content only as a region 2. When I purchased the region 1 set back in 2003, I bought this series blindly without ever watching an episode, I was not dissapointed.

Leah Remini is a hugely talented comedic actor who has starred in bit parts in major sitcoms and even had a role in another good NBC sitcom, 'Fired up', sadly that was shortlived. Kevin James, who plays Doug in this show I was less familiar with but combined they make the perfect couple made for TV with interesting and often hilarious banter bouncing off of each other.

Last but not least the star of the show and comic legend Jerry Stiller, from Seinfeld fame dusts off his classic eccentric father routine once more, this time not for George Costanza but for Carrie Herffernan (Leah). Needless to say the scenes he is in are absolutely terrific.

Now that the series has wrapped for the last time, looking back at the last 6 seasons after this, the earlier episodes are not quite as funny as later ones but this should not deter you from grabbing a copy of it. Classic episodes in this season are 'Supermarket Story' and 'Wheres Poppa', plus many more.

This show, like many others is unfortunately a well kept secret and has not been given a terrestrial primetime airing so unless you have Paramount Comedy Channel, or been up early enough in the mornings when channel 4 have aired it, you've probably never heard of it.

The only difference between this release and the US one is like always the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars And finally 9 Feb 2007
Format:DVD
Okay, so we finally get the chance to purchase the King of Queens on DVD albeit its only the first series but its still a start. The King of Queens is a really good comedy to come from the US and is even funnier in some of the later series. I can't wait for them to arrive on region 2 DVD our shores sometime soon. Anyone who is a fan here in the UK should definately buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series 30 Oct 2009
By DL Productions UK TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It was around 2002 when I discovered The King Of Queens on Satellite, and ever since I have been hooked. Doug, an IPS driver, who's fun and easy going, and grouchy Carrie, a legal secretary, who's also good fun live with her father, Arthur Spooner, who's a bit of a nut - but he usually means well.

Doug hangs out with Richie, a fireman who's got that typical New York accent - he likes to call Doug "moose" and watch college football. He also hangs out with Spence - who's a geeky 30 year old living with his mum. There's also Deak (Decon Palmer) who he works with at IPS, he's a pretty cool guy - married with a kid.

Some of the best moments in the first series is when Arthur tries to get Doug to send back his deodorant, to which Doug threw it out and gave him the run around. Ray Barone (Everybody Loves Raymond) making Doug fail his driving test refresher; Carrie wondering if they should have kids and the one where Arthur finds a flat he simply cannot afford; and the hilarious episode where we find out Doug started calling his cousin "stumpy"!

This is a great start to the show, Kevin James and Leah Remini work perfectly together and are really funny. The inclusion of Jerry Stiller was perfect to the show, his cooky character who keeps yelling is perfect for him, and comedian Patton Oswalt as Spence is wonderful too, he's got the role down to a T. I also like the way they realte together, and we can see straight from the start who's who, and we don't need to spend hours working out what happens. I also like the humour and the storylines are very funny.
