Alternate Versions

The episode "Two Drews and the Queen of Poland Walk Into a Bar" was deemed offensive to Polish people due to its storyline where Mimi prepares to meet the king of Poland. The syndicated version of this episode cuts Mimi's storyline entirely and reuses an intro from an older episode to fit the time missing. See more »

What used to be the best... is no more.
6 September 2004 | by devil_dude140See all my reviews

Do not get me wrong, I still absolutely love the Drew Carey show, but the new episodes suck. It is a good thing this show is going off the air, at least it goes out with dignity. The show used to be very funny, until Kelly comes into the show. Lets just call Kelly, the "Malaria" virus. But let us go onto the good things about the drew carey show. Oswald and Lewis, pure genius characters... one of my favorite characters on any show! Drew (in the early season) used to be hilarious, I love it when him and Mimi fight! As for Mimi, her dresses are just crazy, love the dresses, especially the wedding gown. I don't care much for Kate, but as for Steve, he used to be really funny when he was a cross-dresser. It is too bad that this show has gone to the dump, I would've liked it if the show had kept going like it was before 2002. Too bad... Season Ratings: 1- 2.5/5, 2- 3.5/5, 3- 3/5, 4- 4/5, 5- 5/5, 6- 4/5, 7- 2.5/5, 8- 2/5, 9- 1.5,

Average Rating: 3.05 My Rating: 2.5

Last Comments: Jeez this show has really gone downhill, take it away!
