James Is This Show

My friend told me about King Of Queens two or three years ago, he said it was hilarious and I would love it but when I heard it was a spin-off of Everybody Loves Raymond I just couldn't get with it. It took a blizzard and my friend's box of DVD's to get me to watch the first two seasons. We started watching them and man oh man was I hooked. First of all Kevin James is one of the funniest guys I have seen on TV in the past few years. He's just full of energy and best of all you get this vibe that he's just playing himself and it's not an act so it's extra funny. Leah Remini is perfect as Kevin's wife cause she is a very unique actress and supports the show well.

Now everything I see Jerry Stiller in he automatically sticks out, I really don't think he can help it since he has a very loud voice and makes it clear what he wants. It's crazy how Jerry Stiller actually acts the same way he did in Seinfeld when he was George's dad but he's still hilarious as Carrie's dad. What's even funnier is how Doug (Kevin James) is always hungry and will do whatever for a good meal, like leaving Carrie in the rain after she just got her hair done just to get an apple pie with hot fudge on it. King of Queens is perfect from the cast to the stories and if you don't see it then you're really missing out on a great series.

About this movie


In the sitcomThe King of Queens, comedian Kevin James has created a new archetype: the sensitive lug. This deceptively simple comedy bounces along because delivery man Doug Heffernen (James), though completely a guy's guy, constantly struggles to keep the world around him in a delicate emotional balance. Meanwhile, his wife Carrie (Leah Remini), though utterly feminine (and one of the sexiest women on television), uses the kind of no-nonsense rational approach that's usually a man's province. Add to this mix Carrie's father Arthur (Jerry Stiller), whose life as a fussy, self-absorbed retiree makes him more like their child than an adult, and you've got the building blocks for an excellent and durable show.

The first season of The King of Queens quickly found its voice with stories firmly rooted in the everyday world, rarely spinning off into absurdity--and why should it, when there's such a wealth of humor to be found in petty neuroses (when Doug gets assigned an attractive young woman as a trainee at work, he gets hurt when Carrie isn't remotely jealous), ill-advised scheming (to weasel out of a traffic ticket, Carrie agrees to go out on a date with the cop who pulled her over), and juggling obligations to friends and family (just about every episode). Brilliant comic bits abound; one classic moment features Doug and Carrie having a furious argument in absolute silence at a cello concert--a scene that fuses deft physicality, well-developed characters, and sheer silliness. ...
