Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

After the release of a six-episode Television Favorites sampler, The Drew Carey Show has earned a well-deserved promotion, DVD-wise, with this complete first-season set. 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, a kindred spirit to the "Dilbert" comic strip. The pilot episode introduces the bespectacled, buzz-coiffed Everyman, a "go-getter" in his seventh year as the assistant director of personnel in a Cleveland department store, a position, he notes, "of indirect respect and oblique power." The giddy delights of The Drew Carey Show are many, from the smile-inducing theme song, "Moon Over Parma" ("We're going bowlin' / So don't lose her in Solin") to one of TV's most likeable ensembles: Ryan Stiles as goofy Lewis (or, as Jason Alexander joked on Comedy Central's Drew Carey roast, "Kramer-lite"), Diedrich Bader as Oswald (less of a doofus here than in later seasons), Christa Miller as tomboyish Kate, Drew's lifelong platonic friend and unrequited crush, Kathy Kinney as Mimi, Drew's office nemesis, who is Bluto to his Popeye. The appealing Katy Selverstone is also featured as Lisa, with whom Drew has a secret inter-office romance that will last but this one season.

After the enormously telegenic Friends cast, Drew and company are "a cold little splash of reality," portraying relatable, regular people. In this first season, the series is still finding its feet (enjoy them while you can: Drew's hillbilly neighbors, and the voice of Kevin Pollack as Drew's abusive boss, Mr. Bell). But by season's end, as guest star Jamie Lee Curtis (as Drew's hard-partying barber) polkas with Mimi in the hilarious episode "Playing the Unified Field," the series has established its spontaneous, off-center niche. While there are no episode commentaries, this set puts in some valuable overtime with "Life Inside a Cubicle," a retrospective in which cast and series creators reflect on the series' rocky beginnings. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Drew Carey the character is a lot like you and me: a smarter-than-he-looks average guy with an underwhelming job, some unfulfilled dreams and the support of great friends. And it just so happens that he's played by the very funny Drew Carey, who's also the co-creator and occasional writer of The Drew Carey Show. This complete Season One DVD Set reminds us why we laughed along with Drew for nine smash-hit seasons. We meet Drew and his buddies Oswald, Lewis and Kate. Drew meets Mimi, the cosmetics-challenged co-worker from hell. And everybody meets jobs instead of careers, lumpy bods instead of supermodel sleek and Cleveland instead of Manhattan. It's like real life. Just a whole lot funnier.

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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Drew Carey Show" be underrated NO MORE!!! September 24, 2005
What's WRONG with you people! Don't you reconize a funny, smart, brilliant, over-the-top hilarous TV show when you see one?! I can't believe people praise "Seinfeld" for being inventive and revolutionary when this show kicks it's A*S!

Jerry Seinfeld is about as funny as a bag of toenail clippings! The Drew Carey Show blows Seinfeld out of the water, and then some! Everyone on this show is hilarous, and it's not a comedy all of the time. Sometimes there's drama when Drew has just been dumped by a women, or when he loses his job, or any of the miscellanious things life throws at us. Here's info about the show and the characters you're going to love and relate to:

Drew Allison Carey (Drew Carey) - The protagonist. Forty-something assistant director of personnel at a department store in Cleveland. He's very much the lovable loser, though it should be noted that he's the most successful of his group of friends. Original founder and owner of Buzz Beer (a special brew the gang makes containing coffee and beer. The brewery is in Drew's garage). A perpetual "nice guy." Has a long-standing feud with Mimi Bobeck, aspects of which include: Destroying Mimi's clothes, shredding her vacation requests and masquerading as Antonio Banderas to taunt her.

Lewis Kiniski (Ryan Stiles) - Forms a double-act with Oswald. Lewis is the tall, lanky, blond, insane one. Lewis can be counted on to nonchalantly say bizarre and offensive things. He possesses an IQ of 180. He's a janitor in his forties that works for a company called DrugCo. He notes in one episode that due to accidentally releasing a virus into the population he was busted down to janitor from a position that required he wear a labcoat. It's uncertain if he was a scientist or lab assistant, though it's possible he was joking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drew Carey - The First Season: Moon Over Parma! April 3, 2007
Format:DVD
Envisioned by star Drew Carey as what his life would be like if he had never become a standup comic, "The Drew Carey Show" casts Carey as a beleaguered assistant personnel director of Winfred-Louder, a Cleveland department store. "I [would have] wanted to have some crummy, white-collar-type job where I COULD be in charge, but I'm not," Carey said.

Although unfulfilled professionally, Drew is sustained by his longstanding friendship with pals Oswald (Diedrich Bader), Lewis (Ryan Stiles), and Kate (Christa Miller). While the four pals all find humor in being losers - a fact typically pointed out by Drew's cosmetics-challenged co-worker/arch enemy Mimi (Kathy Kinney) - only Drew cares about getting ahead on the job, but his prospects are few and fleeting.

Like the rest of us, according to producer Bruce Helford, Drew's trying to juggle a life and a career and get through the day with a bit of dignity left. He takes his lumps, then goes home and feels better by hanging out with his pals at the Warsaw tavern. For me and my friends, it's the local IHOP. Initially branded as yet another one of the many Friends clone shows to appear during its freshman season (1995-1996), The Drew Carey Show immediately stood out from the pack with its unique brand of humor, going on to become one of ABC's longer-running hit comedies (9 seasons). It's good to see the show finally packaged in a season set DVD release. Hopefully, the first of many to come.

The Drew Carey Show - The Complete First Season is a 4-disc (489 min.) set featuring all 22 episodes in Full Frame (1.33:1) video, plus the following Special Features: "1-900-MIMI" and "Life Inside a Cubicle" featurette.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Underated TV Series I Ever Knew....Seriously!! September 30, 2005
By J. Kofi
On amazon or any other stores online im sure everyone has at least one item they really..really want to review but just cant be bothered to write about believe me i understand

for some its a classic cd...others a movie...a book etc

Well this is my 1 and probably only review and i only do this because this show to me deserves to be recognised

ill keep it as short as possible

Where im from (London) the british televison network is more or less garbage showing only the primetime (BAREABLE) american shows (friends, dawsons etc) yawn

Fed up with the 5 Channels uk tv has to offer (yes u guys in US 5 channels!!) i purchased cable and found this little show called the drew carey show (season 1).

If it helps i was 19 at that time (Audience)

The Drew Carey Show twists the irony and sarcasim of evryday life into comedy.

Drew is a 35+ year old man in a middle management dead end job

hes overweight, unlucky with women, never gets his promotion and has dumb/trailer park type friends.

Its was running 1995 - 2004 a whole nine seasons.

Scrubs is more or less an evolved version of The Drew Carey Show, with its witty/borderline comedy/drama (to add

to this the actress that plays perrys wife in scrubs was originally in the first 8 seasons of TDCS but left for scrubs).

Only recently due to the magic of the internet (hint "rents" Hint) have i managed to watch all 9 years of drew carey.

It is a crime that its not on DVD at the moment and its even bigger crime it didnt get the fame it deserves.

i went throught all the motions watching this series its a very versitile/flexable one at that.

Season 2 Release Date?
Still no word on season 2.
I love this show, and I want the entire series - either as a complete set or as individual seasons.
But I absolutely refuse to buy one season without knowing that subsequent seasons are out or on the way. I'm sure others share that philosophy.
Studios: Take notice.
