One of television's brightest comedy sensations, Drew Carey headlines as an average, single everyday Cleveland guy with an underwhelming job and some unfulfilled dreams, struggling to stay financially and romantically afloat in an unpredictable era. This half-hour comedy depicts the life of a wannabe upwardly mobile guy whose looks, well, wouldn't get him work modeling Speedos, but at least he's got a brain and a steady supply of perspective and attitude from his lifelong pals, Oswald (DIEDRICH BADER), Lewis (RYAN STILES) and Kate (CHRISTA MILLER). On the other hand, Drew's omnipresent office nemesis, the cosmetically challenged Mimi (KATHY KINNEY) delights in spreading her own version of hell into both Drew's private and professional lives. Add to this Drew's ruthless English boss, Nigel Wick (CRAIG FERGUSON), and his insatiable need to find new and more sadistic methods of firing employees and it's clear: THE DREW CAREY SHOW is a lot like real life. Just a whole lot funnier.]]>
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
Awesome comedy sitcom. Every episode in season 1 was hilarious. Wish they would release these on bluray. But DVD version will have to do for now.Published 21 days ago by M. Tibuni

Seriously one of my favorite shows. It saddens me to not have all the seasons and not know if or when we will get to see the other ones on instant and DVD! Read morePublished 2 months ago by Stephanie

|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.
