Kevin James, Leah Remini, Jerry Stiller. Includes all 25 episodes from the second season, featuring the standout episodes Queasy Rider," Get Away," Fair Game," Surprise Artie," Whine Country" and more! 3 DVDs. 1999-2000/color/11 hrs/NR/fullscreen.
Like its characters, The King of Queens is a unpretentious but utterly dependable sitcom. Kevin James and Leah Remini, as blue-collar couple Doug and Carrie Heffernan, have the kind of chemistry that every sitcom craves (but far too few have). Layered on top of this solid foundation are the bizarre flights of Jerry Stiller as Arthur, Carrie's loud, paranoid, and combustible father.
The second season has no overarching plotlines or recurring themes; it's just a compilation of excellent material, including Doug's ego inflating when a waitress flirts with him; Doug and Carrie squirming when their best friends ask them to be godparents; Doug discovering that Carrie compulsively cheats at games; and a flashback to when they first met. It's the attention to emotional detail that makes the show fly; James and Remini take the most mundane material--say, an argument over where to go for a vacation or how their marriage lacks romance--and turn the many ways in which couples cope into a pugnacious duet. Their sparring not only is funny, but consistently rings true as irrational but oh-so-common human behavior. The show pulls you in all the more because the Heffernans make up just as often as they fight, demonstrating one of the most functional marriages on television. It's meat-and-potatoes comedy, but sometimes nothing else will hit the spot. --Bret Fetzer

Dear V. Henderson,
The rapidly rolling credits given after each episode of the cited sitcom would seem to indicate that the musician responsible for the music is one Andrew Gross. If I could secure a copy of the closing theme for the cited sitcom, I would surely buy it. Gross has an uncanny... Read More
