The bases are loaded with laughs in the seventh season of The King of Queens! Doug (Emmy® nominated Kevin James) and Carrie Heffernan (Leah Rimini) continue their winning streak of comedy. Doug fakes cardiac arrest at Carr... more »ie's work event to cover up his inability to remember her co-workers' names. Carrie scores box seats to a Mets game, only to have Doug strike out with her boss. When Doug's parents come to town, Arthur (Jerry Stiller) is more than happy to entertain Doug's bored Mom. Arthur settles a decades old vendetta against a game show, solves a crime of a missing wallet and learns the power of digital photo editing. Carrie faces turning 35, Doug faces the DMV, and they both face an intense timeshare sales weekend. All this, plus guest stars like Burt Reynolds, Lou Ferrigno, Anne Meara and Hal Linden. It's a grand slam of laughs.« less
"Just like the last reviewer, I too did not pay attention to the label on the back where the aspect ratio is listed as Anamorphic Widescreen. However, I actually like this improvement.
Not only is this season Widescreen (which the previous six seasons were released in Full Scrren), I like the mastering of the picture much better as well. I have an HDTV with an HD Up-Convert DVD changer. Compared to the last six seasons, the picture quality of Season Seven is much better, clearer, and shaper. There was always some form of fuzziness with the previous seasons that may or may not have been visible on non-HD electronics. But rest assured, you get excellent quality with Season Seven. Great improvements. The packaging is excellent too with vibrant colors."
Beginning Of 'The Fat Years'
Darren F. Parker | Central Illinois | 03/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
""The King Of Queens" is a great show, I think we all know that. The 6th Season was probably the pinnacle for the show, but the momentum carried over into the 7th Season. For me, this is what I refer to as the beginning of 'The Fat Years' for the character of Carrie Heffernan. The weight gain is never really discussed, so it's kind of like the elephant in the room, no pun intended. Leah Remini (Carrie) got pregnant in real life and she gained a lot of weight during her pregnancy and she showed it a lot. I don't understand why they didn't right her pregnancy into the show, it would have made perfect sense for Doug and Carrie to have a baby together. Just imagine the jealousy and subsequent storylines that would happen with Arthur. Anyway, I just find it distracting because it's never really mentioned that I can remember (I'm just now re-watching the episodes on DVD).
Nevertheless, it's a great show and this season is really good. You can't really go wrong with "The King Of Queens"."
The cruel years
MZ | Novinger, MO United States | 05/27/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)
"When this series started, it was a fun look at a quirky family whose members were sometimes crazy but always lovable. By Season 7, Doug had turned into a selfish little boy and Carrie was just as selfish, but also cruel. In this season, it doesn't seem like they care for each other anymore, and the viewer is left to wonder why they even live in the same house. As a family unit, they were no longer believable. In real life, Kevin James had lost weight and Leah Remini was still recovering from pregnancy. But on the show, Carrie relentlessly criticizes Doug for being fat. The writers needed to recognize reality, move on, or quit. We did enjoy the development of supporting characters, but as far as Doug and Carrie's marriage is concerned, it just isn't working anymore."
King of Queens Season 7 DVD

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I am a huge fan of the show. "King of Queens" is one of the last remaining sitcoms. I know that it is airing its last 7 episodes starting this month and that is sad. IF you are a fan of the show I recommend this DVD along with the other seasons. This is a show that can be watched multiple times and still gets big laughs."
The King of Queens 7th Season
J. Williams | Benicia, CA USA | 03/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is an excellent DVD set especially if you're a fan of The King of Queens. The set has a nice quality, colorful & attractive cover sleeve & fold-out panels for each disc. The flyer enclosed with the discs gives good detailed descriptions of each episode (although it's in very fine print). The picture quality of each disc is excellent, too."
