King of Queens Season 1 (DVD)

/ Dec 10th, 2003 No Comments

SYNOPSIS:
One of the top comedy hits on television comes in its first season on DVD, released by Columbia TriStar Home Video. This three disc collection contains all 25 episodes from the first season, and 2 bonus episodes for this DVD set only.
EXTRAS

This DVD set comes with some decent features…

All 25 episodes from the first season, plus two bonus episodes
Pilot episode commentary with Kevin James and show creator-executive producer Michael Weithorn
"Just Having Fun": Go behind the scenes with the King of Queens cast as they look back on the show's hilarious first season
Laughs montage: featuring the most hysterical moments from the first season
Not bad, the inclusion of two bonus episodes is rather cool, and the commentary on the pilot is nice too. Going behind the scenes was great, but it definitely left you wanting a little more.

ENTERTAINMENT
The King of Queens is a pretty entertaining show with the witty wife and the tough in-laws and the average joe main character all coming together to point out the quirks of living in New York, being a husband and wife, and just the routine things that make life the strange and funny thing it is. The comedy is light, simple, and the well developed characters, especially Jerry Stiller, play their roles very well. There's a reason this is one of the top rated shows on TV – it's funny.
LASTING FACTOR
This first season of "The King of Queens" is a great DVD set to buy if you're into the whole buying of television shows on DVD thing. I have to say watching re-runs or even the regular show on basic cable doesn't even come close to watching the quality you see on DVD. The humor is very simple, nice, and the characters are easily loveable. The shows aren't about anything in particular, just typical nutty adventures that we see from time to time.
AUDIO & VIDEO QUALITY
The quality of the DVDs themselves are great. The quality of the audio and video are great – much better than watching it on TV. But, this isn't a George Lucas special effects masterpiece, so only expect "so much" from the quality of the A/V. The entertainment value is definitely the high selling point of this DVD set (and the price is right too – we've seen it under $30 at various e-retailers). The extras are okay – we wanted more, but there was an effort to include some cool stuff (in the form of 2 extra episodes), and the overall appeal of this show is high, so it can make an excellent gift for a friend this holiday season. Overall, a funny series with some great episodes – a great buy on DVD.
