24 episodes on 3 DVDs.

Amazon.com

The third season of The King of Queens upholds the quality of the first two: Smart but unpretentious comedy based firmly in the daily lives of blue-collar couple Doug and Carrie Heffernan (Kevin James and Leah Remini) as they cope with their jobs, their friends, and sharing their home with Carrie's eccentric, obsessive father Arthur (Jerry Stiller). While dozens of mediocre sitcoms are built around fat guys implausibly married to sexy women, James and Remini have such chemistry and their characters are so well-crafted and complex that their marriage seems not only convenient for sitcom purposes but downright meant to be.

The show only goes astray when it goes for a gimmick. In one episode, Doug dreams of himself as Ralph Kramden in The Honeymooners; while it's understandable for James to tip his hat to one of his idols, this belabored concept sucked all the humor out of the show. But when The King of Queens sticks to small, mundane troubles, the results are unfailingly delightful. For example, Doug becomes self-conscious about his weight when he discovers that Carrie buys his clothes at the Big & Tall Shop; Carrie is excited to go to lunch with some of the women lawyers at her firm, then humiliated when it turns out they didn't know she's a secretary; or Carrie admits she finds Doug's best friend Deacon (Victor Williams) hot. These events launch some wonderful farce, all the funnier because anyone can identify with the characters' insecurity and jealousy. This firm psychological grounding lets the series keep its footing as it dips into some deeper emotions, like the break-up of Deacon's marriage or an unexpected pregnancy. Because James and Remini keep their characters truthful in their most ridiculous moments, they keep us engaged and even moved as they enter what could be maudlin territory--plus, the writers never lose the opportunity for a sharp but telling joke along the way. The King of Queens makes sitcoms look easy, but the show's skillful balance of an ordinary world and fine-tuned humor is anything but. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
King of Queens is one of those sitcoms that seems to fly just below most people's TV radars. It remains popular enough that it is now into it's seventh season on CBS and yet has never been a major enough hit that it becomes the topic of water cooler discussions the morning after a new episode. At it's core this is a working man's, middle-class comedy. Doug Heffernan (Kevin James) delivers parcels for IPS, and his wife Carrie (Leah Rhemini) is a legal secretary. They are joined in their suburban Queens colonial by Carries father Arthur (Jerry Stiller) who rooms in the basement.

The show typically centers on the mundane problems that all middle-classers face on a daily basis such as not having enough money, squabbles with neighbors, problems at work, etc. We all admire Doug for being a rather typical fat slob but somehow being able to land a gorgeous wife like Carrie. The show is always consistently funny and has a wonderful cast of supporting nut co-stars including Doug's best friend and co-worker Deacon andnebbish mama's boy friend Spencer. King of Queen's never aims too high and never ventures into dramatic plots as some comedies tend to do. CArrie always wants to aim for a higher place in society, much to Doug's aggravation, while he is perfectly content to sit on the couch, watch the football game, and eat Doritos. This tends to set up some of the more hilarious plots.

Notable season Three episodes include:

"Fatty McButterpants" - Doug finds out that Carrie has been buying his clothes at the "Big and Tall Shop" and admits that he may have a weight problem. Carrie tells him that he could stand to lose about 40 pounds. Doug's feelings are upset and he takes it out by nit-picking on Carrie.

Second Season of KING OF QUEENS was good, but the 3rd Season is honestly the best of the series. Every episode is funny, from "Do Rico" all the way to "Pregnant Pause." The Third Season was probably the best in ratings too, along with many special guest stars (Uncredited on the DVD) like Florence Henderson, Angelo Pagan (Leah Remini's Husband), Eric Roberts, Pat Sajak, Vanna White, Gavin MacLead, Dom Irrera, Ricki Lake, Lou Ferrigno, and the first episode with MADtv's Nicole Sullivan playing Marilyn, (10x funnier role than "Holly" currently in Seasons 4-7). "Paint Misbehavin'" features the last episode with the character "Richie", but this Season includes more of "Spence" & "Danny." I love this show and can admit it's not getting better with the writing compared to 3rd Season. I want to remember KING OF QUEENS with this excellent DVD. I don't have to mention KEVIN JAMES, LEAH REMINI, or JERRY STILLER, because everyone already knows they are the best...and make the show a hit. This Third Season can represent the entire series.

Many nights my husband and I cannot agree on what to watch- then we turn to Doug and Carrie- slapstick funny without offending one's intelligence, sometimes predictable, never boring, and always more true to life then most sitcoms. This is not chic TV nor is it guy TV- it is everybody TV. Season three keeps the formula of seasons one and two, but we learn more about Doug and Carrie's history and early relationship. Simply good, funny tv.

I just received my order a few days ago and haven't quite watched all the episodes, but the ones I have so far have been hilarious. I have the first two seasons on King of Queens and Kevin James and co. seem to be really getting in the swing of things in their third season.

If you are a fan of the show i would definitely recommend. If you are not a fan of the show I would say buy this season and you soon will be.

I will keep buying this show as long as they keep putting it out. The whole cast is great, the laughs never stop and its great to see sitcom writers doing exactly what they are getting paid to do. Keep writing funny and entertaining shows which seems to bypass a lot of them these days. Im sure this show will go on for years, but one thing I cannot understand is why this show has never found its way onto prime time TV in Australia. Its not like it is full of American humour, I would have thought that it would appeal to a very wide audience.

Doug, Carrie, and Arthur keep on making people laugh with this Third, great season, Some of the best Episodes are on this 3-disc set with Carrie wanting to go back to school, Doug and Deacon on strike, Arthur wanting more freedom from Carrie, and finally the season ending with Doug and Carrie trying to have a baby. This season is extremeley funny, with bust-out laughs and with some very serious moments. All you King of Queens fans will love this, and bet you can't wait for Season 4, and all the other seasons to come out and add to this great collection of comedy.

You know, it's not deep... but it's funny. While seeing Jerry Stiller (from Seinfeld) takes a bit getting used to, if you watch 2 or 3 episodes, you'll be hooked. Kevin James is hilarious as Doug, and the rest of the cast is incredibly sharp. I end up watching these over and over...I will buy every DVD in this series.
