The series finale's ending is a remake of the pilot's ending but with a small twist. In the pilot Kate, Oswald, and Lewis watch Drew from his kitchen window as he plays pool and in the finale it's Lewis, Oswald, Mr. Wick, Mimi, Kellie, and Drew Jr who are watching Drew. Both endings include Drew playing pool outside in the rain, in his yellow rain jacket, humming "Moon Over Parma". See more »
I don't usually like shows starring stand-up comics. They end a great comics career and usually aren't acted that well. Drew Carey is different. Every part is played pitch perfect and it has good, plausible storylines.
The show went downhill after Kate and Oswald broke up, but that happens with all shows. The Mimi/Steve pairing was well-played and emotionally fulfilling. I'm not much of a fan of Drew/Kate and the show would have been better without it. Wick is the strongest character, albeit cartoonish. But the whole show is.
My favorite episode would be when they attempted to win an Emmy. It was the epitome of the show-goofy.
