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

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.

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.

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!

Watched the whole thing from beginning to end the first chance I got and I laughed my head off.

Great cast with great chemistry!

Hopefully they will release the whole show with all seasons some time soon. I gotta have more!

Cleveland rocks!

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.

Last Monday, September 15, 2008, The Home Theater Forum had Warner Brothers home video (T.V. and Animation Divisions only) on their chat line. Questions about a release for the 2nd season of Drew Carey Show were asked and Warner Brothers flatly said "no plans". I think this is a disgrace!!! Drew Carey is one of the best Comedy shows of the 90's!! We need to write to Warner Brothers and bombard them with emails and letters to get this show on DVD!!! Fans of the series Knots Landing did just that, and now Knots Landing (according to last mondays chat) Warner Brothers is giving that show another chance on DVD! We need to do the same for this show if you want more seasons of this show released on DVD!!! GET YOUR VOICES HEARD!!! The good news is Warner Brothers is planning to release another DVD set of Drew's other show: Whose Line Is It Anyway? Season 2. Personally, I would prefer The 2nd season of THE DREW CAREY SHOW......but at least Drew's other show is getting recognized!!!
