"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".

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.

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.

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.

Every single one of the King of Queens episodes are worth watching! This show is by far one of the best TV sitcoms. Season 7 as well as every season prior to it are hilarious, especially when Arthur (Jerry Stiller) is in it. Doug and Carrie really have great chemistry also. My favorite 7th season episode is when Arthur tries to get his one year supply of Rice a Roni that he was supposed to have received 20 or so years ago when he was a contestant on a game show.

This Season I think started the downhill fall for the Comedy Series King of Queens. This season had some of the dumbest and most boring episodes ever. Doug and Carrie argue WAYYYYY to much now and its hurtful arguing and not funny, stuppid arguing. Deacon rarely shows up and I miss that! :(. So what I basically trying to say is that this Season is not very good. Thats just my opinion

I have all seasons of King of Queens and have watched them many times.

Kevin James' comedy skews way too young and silly for me when left to his own devices but in this series, with the writing and the other fun characters, it works.

It seemed noticeable with Season 7 that the writing had changed and the other characters,aside from Leah were not used as much. Just last night watching episodes 1 to 7 of Season 7, it seemed like a different show. I know that Seasons 7 to 9 had their moments and treasured episodes but the best were the first 6 Seasons. And why was Season 9 cut short? Likely there was plenty going on in the background with the production. I've noticed with other comedy shows, they over-reach after 6 years.

That said, I will always keep the King of Queens dvd sets handy for a laugh.

Hello everyone and welcome to what is probably the funniest season of the king of queens to date. Doug finally conquers his fears of being a bartender and makes an alcoholic feel bad for ordering a non alcoholic drink on his first order, it's hilarious. So many great episodes so little time but once you start watching this show you will never stop becasue it hooks you very quickly. Carrie gains a few pounds and Doug and Lou Ferigno take advantage of the exercise time, what more could you want , Order a copy now and if you haven't ordered the other seasons bring em on home!!

For many years now I have thought and still think that The King of Queens is the best sitcom out there.

The show has manage to hold a high quality throughout the years, altough

the later seasons have lacked a little bit of creativity. I still enjoy it very much but feels that the earlier seasons had a better "replay watching"

I still wish that they could add the option to have subtitles, but this is just a minor problem.

But in overall the seventh season still delivers laughter and joy to much satisfaction. Recommended.
