Product Description

Drew Carey is your everyday blue-collar guy who's struggling through life's ups and downs with his closest friends, Oswald, Lewis and Kate. Stuck in the same job for ten years, Drew performs a balancing act between sucking up to his boss and doing his best to irritate his annoying co-worker, Mimi. When he's not at work, he's trying to have some success in the romance department and indulging in a few of his own beers he brews in his garage with his friends.

It's a five o'clock world, and before it was unceremoniously pink-slipped in 2004, few television workplace comedies so keenly or hilariously captured the mind-numbing drudgery and soul-crushing despair of cubicle culture as The Drew Carey Show. This representative collection samples six episodes spanning the 1995 series' first four seasons. The pilot introduces the bespectacled, buzz-coiffed Everyman who works as the assistant director of personnel in a Cleveland department store, a position, he notes, "of indirect respect and oblique power." Misery loves company, and the company Drew kept formed one of TV's most amiable ensembles, including Ryan Stiles as Lewis (or, as Jason Alexander joked on Comedy Central's Drew Carey roast, "Kramer-lite"), Diedrich Bader as goofus Oswald, Christa Miller as Kate, Drew's lifelong platonic friend and unrequited crush, Kathy Kinney as Drew's office nemesis, Mimi. Craig Ferguson later joined the cast as Mr. Wick, Drew's pink slip-happy boss. "Playing the Unified Field" features a smoldering Jamie Lee Curtis as Drew's barber, a hard-partying danger-seeker who agrees to go out with Drew ("Don't bore me"). "We'll Always Remember Evaluation Day" finds Drew torn between his job and his secret girlfriend, a fellow employee (the enormously appealing Katy Selverstone). "Drew Blows His Promotion," the highlight of the collection, culminates in a practical joke that literally backfires in a symphony of flatulence. "My Best Friend's Wedding," the climax of season 3's Oswald-Kate story arc, would be best appreciated in a complete-season set. "DrugCo," with the monkapotamus (not to mention Charles Nelson Reilly), is one of the series' most bizarre episodes.

The Drew Carey Show was distinguished by its spontaneous, off-center sense of humor, exemplified by such throwaway bits of business as Ferguson's Sean Connery and Michael Caine impressions in "Promotion," and the wholly unexpected blockbuster production numbers ("Five O'Clock World" and "Cleveland Rocks") that became the series' signature. One could quibble with the episode selection here, but it's great to have Drew back on the job, or at least on DVD. --Donald Liebenson

4.0 out of 5 stars Well its a start. March 10, 2006
I was looking forward to the Drew Carey Show comming to DVD and when I saw this DVD on Amazon I grabed it. The DVD contains 6 episodes, The Pilot, Playing The Unified Field, We'll Remember Always - Evaluation Day, Drew Blows His Promotion, My Best Friends Wedding, DrugCo. Great episodes but I would rather have a complete season. There are no extras on this DVD. I guess this DVD is testing the Market before they release the full seasons. Anyway if your a Drew Carey Show fan then this DVD is good value. But I hope we dont have to wait for years for the complete seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a start May 26, 2006
Excellent selection of episodes from all the series of Drew Carey, but, it does have one drawback, it makes me angry that the powers to be haven't had the sense to release every episode of every series made onto DVD yet. Come on people, this is one of the funniest shows ever and I need my fix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please Release The Full Season! We Love It! December 2, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Drew Carey is a comic genius and his cast of funny characters and equally hilarious stories makes me laugh until it HURTS! This treasure chest of comic fun has 6 episodes including the Pilot episode. If you didn't know how much humor could be found in Cleveland Ohio, you do now!

Since there are a paucity of shows on this dvd, let's just say the market has been tested and we want the full series! The Drag Queen episode makes me laugh until I'm wiping tears from my eyes and that episode about Drew's promotion had me laughing so hard that I thought I'd crack a rib. This is what comedy fans have been praying for. Please, please, PLEASE release the full season so we can enjoy even more laughs. Drew Carey is here to stay!

5.0 out of 5 stars Whole season compilations - PLEASE October 1, 2006
I recently bought the "Best OF" dvd and was freshly blown away by the genius of Drew's comedy. The episode showing Drew "blowing" his promotion had us literally falling on the floor with laughter (again) - it may not be sophisticated but it is great physical comedy. We will be anxiously waiting for the full season DVD's. PLEASE!

A separate DVD with all the great musical dance scenes would also be great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey! Craig's not that bad! May 9, 2006
Craig's in a tough spot, going up against Conan, who's been dominant for years. Conan and his writers make for a very entertaing show, and it's just tough to draw fans away from it. But I think Craig is actually quite funny himself! The few times I have actually watched his show, I have been well entertained! He has a unique perspective and brand of comedy, and it works! Besides, it's not like he can be Mr. Wick anywhere outside "The Drew Carey Show!" Once Conan takes over "The Tonight Show," I will gladly flip over to Craig at 12:35.


Any fan of "The Drew Carey Show" must buy this DVD! (Even two or three copies, and give them to friends!) Warner Bros. put out this DVD as a tester, to see how well it sells. If it does well, they will most likely put the full seasons on DVD. However, as there is no guarantee, you should buy this anyway in case it's the only Drew Carey DVD ever released!

The DVD contains some of the best episodes, though not all (of course!). Every episode on it is great and very entertaining. The only reasons you might be disappointed are (1) it's missing one or two of your other personal favorites, or (2) you get upset when a DVD does not contain extras.

For 10 bucks, it's well worth the price!
