The second series of King Of Queens was funnier for many reasons, but the re-launch of the show, with brand new titles really brought the best of the show, and showed us CBS were starting to take this show seriously. Doug is still an IPS man, and Carrie is a legal secretary in a firm. Arthur is still there, with his crazy schemes and so are Doug's friends, Spence, with his geekyness, rough-around-the-edges Richie, and Deak, who's a cool guy.
This season sees some of the funniest episodes, where we see how Doug and Carrie met, the one where we find out who was having an affair with one of Arthur's friends' wives, the one where Doug gets an injury in the family jewels and the one where Carrie turns 30.
This is still a great comedy, with plenty of laughs. We still get some great cameos in this series, like Ray Romano and Patricia Heaton, and little dog Stanley is still in the picture. The funnies come thick and fast in this series, and you'll laugh a lot over the 12+hrs it runs for.
Again, these DVDs are not the best masters you could get, hopefully the German Blu-Ray disks will come out in the US, or UK soon and we can get the full 16:9 presentation David Litt and Michael J. Weithorn had always wanted them to be in. The quality of the image isn't bad, but it's quite grainy and they're cropped to 4:3, which is a bit annoying when you think these were filmed on widescreen cameras. There are few extras too, you get a featurette about A Day In The Life Of International Superstar Kevin James, which isn't bad. There are English subtitles.
Still, this is a great series and worth getting.
