"What's the matter, Douglas, you never looked heavier?"

"Now this what I call a sitcom! King Of Queens is in my opinion the greatest television comedy of all time, that is correct the greatest of all time.
Set in Queens, NY is an all star cast featuring Kevin James as Doug Heffernan, an overweight IPS driver, that is pretty much the all american fat guy. He eats alot, drinks, is obsessed with sports, watches alot of tv, makes farting noises with his hand, and oh did I mention he eats alot. Also starring Leah Remini as Carrie Heffernan, the outspoken, strong, and alot of times mean, beautiful wife of Doug. And last but not least Jerry Stiller as Arthur Spooner, the outrageous father-in-law that lives in Doug and Carries basement after setting fire to his house, trying to cook on an old hot plate. The three of these actors are a dynamic trio, that without anyone of these characters the show would not have turned out as funny as it did. I have to say that every character created in King Of Queens is funny, I have tried to think of one that maybe I did not quite like, but after thinking long and hard I love them all, from the quirky dog walker starring Nicole Sullivan as Holly Shumpert that Doug and Carrie hire to walk their father, to the mean waitress Doug almost fought with but ends up trying to run away scared. I have watched alot of sitcoms, and have yet to find one that comes close to the King Of Queens. I now use the ignorant word "Shutty" instead of shut up or be quite. I feel that it's nicer than using "shut up", and not quite as nice as "be quite". Even after watching each episode atleast five times, they are all still as funny as the first time I watched them.
This is for anyone who loves over the top funny comedy. That can appreciate the greatness tv sometimes has to offer. Although all the episodes are hilarious, it also brings us back to reality with some very powerful and meaningful moments. The very last episode had me cracking up, but also in tears. That's what great tv is all about.

"There are lots of boxed sets of various television series out there but this one stands head and shoulders above them all by virtue of its amazing packaging. The set comes in an IPS delivery truck designed as a cue to the truck in the TV series. The hood opens up and this is where the liner notes about the program is found. At the other end of the vehicle is a door which, when opened, reveals a stack of DVD "packages" sitting on top of a little miniature pallet.
If you care about such things, I think the packaging even has won some awards.
Oh yeah, and the series itself is pretty good :-)"
No deleted scenes, no bloopers

"Please note: If I were rating the show itself I would give it 5 stars. The show itself is hilarious. The interplay between Kevin James, Leah Remini, and Jerry Stiller is fantastic. But, if you are reading this you probably already know that.
I give the box set release 3 stars because there are no deleted scenes, bloopers, or show commentaries. I've seen all the episodes. I was hoping for the same kind of extras that Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond, and The Office put into their season DVD releases. The extra 'bonus' disc with this set is pretty worthless.
If you don't care about bonus features, then by all means, buy this set. The show looks good, sounds good, and the truck is pretty cool.

"If you're even looking at this, you're a fan of the show, so the fact that it's a hilarious show is out of the way. Let's talk about the set - it's perfect. The IPS truck design is great; you 'unload' the discs from the back, and the episode guide is under the hood in the front. Each season has a fold out CD-like case and they all fit in the back of the truck. It's seriously beautiful for fans of the show. Must buy if you don't own any of the seasons!"
