Editorial Reviews

THE KING OF QUEENS consistently delivered laughs for nine seasons, making it one of the most popular and longest-running comedies in television history! Kevin James stars as Doug Heffernan, a lovable regular guy with an adoring wife, Carrie (Leah Remini), and a frustrating father-in-law (Jerry Stiler) under his roof. Packed with a crazy cast of characters, hilarious situations and plenty of great guest stars, this is one show that brings the goods!

Ok, I personally have owned all 9 seasons individually and then the complete series which is a wonderfully made IPS Truck in which the back holds (9) 3 disc tiny little box sets. Each one has a small picture of what the cover of the original 9 season box sets look like. To clarify each season of these tiny box sets match the front cover of the same season that was put out originally. In the front of the IPS truck (under the hood) there is a episode guide for each season. Here is a link to that set. Check the pictures for the design, the individual tiny box sets, etc.

http://www.amazon.com/King-Queens-Complete-Kevin-James/dp/B000VECAE4/ref=sr_1_3?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1343634996&sr=1-3&keywords=king+of+queens

NOW, when I seen this new 40.00 set come out I was like how come so cheap? Just look at the pictures... it is ok packaging and its the same discs you will find in other complete set or the original 9 box sets but the discs come on 2 separate spindles. Could cause damage to the discs over time if you move it around a lot. Spindles aren't the best for storing discs.

So basically, if you are a hard core fan I would recommend the 120.00 really nice IPS Truck Set. Few complete series are as creative and nicely done as it is. If you are new fan trying out the show or don't really care about how it comes then save the 80.00 and go with the 40.00 set with the spindles inside.
Just wanted to warn people so they aren't upset with the packaging of the 40.00 set and know what to expect. BOTTOM LINE: Look at all the pictures for both versions before deciding.

Edit: Amazon shouldn't have combined the reviews. That's why there are reviews for the IPS Truck 150.00 set and they are under the 40.00 set reviews and vice versa. They should have been separate. I can see why people were confused on what set they are getting.

Package? Let me start with the package. I hear people complain about the package. There isn't anything wrong having dvds on a spindle. I have a few hundred dvds on spindles and never had a scratch from it and they all work fine. I am not throwing the spindles around though. Just take reasonable care with the collection. And I have to say that EVERYONE REALLY SHOULD SAVE THE CARDBOARD INSERT THAT HOLDS THE DISCS DOWN IN THE SPINDLE. Don't throw that away. The cardboard insert holds the discs nice and tight so the discs won't rattle at all. Without the cardboard insert, the discs will rattle around. The package doesn't compare to the more expensive truck box collection but if it means that I am going to save +$60 for this collection, then the cost reducing package is a 5 out of 5.

Picture quality? Lets just say I have seen some amazing looking DVDs and this isn't the case here. It is fine with me but if you watch the syndicated series on TBS HD a lot like I do and expect something close to that, then you will notice a pretty big difference in picture quality and be somewhat disappointed. There are artifacts showing at times. I am a little more forgiving of the picture quality because this is a comedy series. If it was a special effect science fiction/action movie, then I would be disappointed. It is about 3 hours of show per disc which is too high considering I think these are regular 4.7GB discs. It is still good enough for me because the hilarious show makes me forget about some slight artifacts. If they made this in blu-ray or made it look somewhat like TBS HD, it would have been perfect. As for aspect ratio, I am actually a fan of keeping the original aspect ratio rather than zooming or stretching the picture. Good job there. I give the picture quality a 3.75 out of 5.

Now this what I call a sitcom! King Of Queens is in my opinion the greatest television comedy of all time, that is correct the greatest of all time.

Set in Queens, NY is an all star cast featuring Kevin James as Doug Heffernan, an overweight IPS driver, that is pretty much the all american fat guy. He eats alot, drinks, is obsessed with sports, watches alot of tv, makes farting noises with his hand, and oh did I mention he eats alot. Also starring Leah Remini as Carrie Heffernan, the outspoken, strong, and alot of times mean, beautiful wife of Doug. And last but not least Jerry Stiller as Arthur Spooner, the outrageous father-in-law that lives in Doug and Carries basement after setting fire to his house, trying to cook on an old hot plate. The three of these actors are a dynamic trio, that without anyone of these characters the show would not have turned out as funny as it did. I have to say that every character created in King Of Queens is funny, I have tried to think of one that maybe I did not quite like, but after thinking long and hard I love them all, from the quirky dog walker starring Nicole Sullivan as Holly Shumpert that Doug and Carrie hire to walk their father, to the mean waitress Doug almost fought with but ends up trying to run away scared. I have watched alot of sitcoms, and have yet to find one that comes close to the King Of Queens. I now use the ignorant word "Shutty" instead of shut up or be quite. I feel that it's nicer than using "shut up", and not quite as nice as "be quite". Even after watching each episode atleast five times, they are all still as funny as the first time I watched them.

This is for anyone who loves over the top funny comedy. That can appreciate the greatness tv sometimes has to offer. Although all the episodes are hilarious, it also brings us back to reality with some very powerful and meaningful moments. The very last episode had me cracking up, but also in tears. That's what great tv is all about.

Box Set vs. Individual Seasons
The disc content is exactly the same, as it is just different packaging. But, there is one extra disc which has extra features that were produced towards the end of the show's run (I have yet to go over it). If the booklets in the individual releases are just for brief episode descriptions, then... Read More

Subtitles
Yes, it is close captioned for the hearing impaired (in English). Not exactly the same as English subtitles, but useful if you need to read the dialogue.

I'm sorry to inform you that the entire series is NOT subtitled at ALL.
Not even in English.

Question for anyone who has this set?
Inside the box are 9 small digipacks that each hold three discs. They are in the disc holders like in normal sets. My DVD's did not have a scratch on them. The discs are much better protected than they are in some of the other complete series collections.
