Storyline

Three's definitely a crowd for parcel post deliveryman Doug Heffernan (Kevin James), whose newly widowed father-in-law, Arthur (Jerry Stiller), has moved in with him and his wife, Carrie (Leah Remini). Doug's no longer the king of his domain -- the renovated basement that houses his beloved supersized TV set -- let alone the king of Queens, where he lives. Can they all just get along?

Goofs

In one episode, Carrie (Leah Remini) and Doug (Kevin James) talk about "their" song in the ninth grade. In another episode they indicate Doug met Carrie while he was a bouncer at a local bar. Further, the two actors are 5 year apart in age so they could not have been in the 9th grade at the same time. See more »

Quotes

Arthur Spooner: What's going on?
Doug Heffernan: It's Carrie. The weirdest thing, every time we get together with our friends to play board games, she cheats.
Arthur Spooner: She cheats? That little girl? That's impossible.
Doug Heffernan: Arthur, I've seen her do it.
Arthur Spooner: No, no. She may put some cotton in her bra from time to time, but she does not cheat at board games!

A damn funny show!!!
27 February 2002 | by mattymatt4everSee all my reviews

I never thought I would ever say this, but...the funniest sitcoms out right now (2002) are on CBS! The network used to broadcast only shows that the 65 and over crowd would enjoy. This is a very, very funny show!

Now, most sitcoms depend a lot on forced humor. This show doesn't. The writing and performances are very natural. And I never watch the show without getting at least 10 good laughs.

Kevin James is a great, underrated comedian. He should really get more recognition for his talent. He always cracks me up. Kevin's not a bland comic, yet he doesn't go over-the-top. He has just the right anecdote to produce big laughs. By the way, he hosted the "People's Choice Awards" and he was great! It was hilarious when he walked off stage in his boxers.

Jerry Stiller, thankfully, gets the chance to once again display his incredible talent. He was memorable as Frank Costanza on "Seinfeld" and he's actually given a role that lives up to it. I guess you can say he's the one "Seinfeld" cast member, as of now, who's still a television success.

Leah Remini is a beautiful actress. She is great to look at, and has a superb sense of timing. She holds her own, not getting upstaged by the two professional comedians.

If you haven't checked out the show as of yet, I really suggest you do. It's one of the few funny shows on television. I'm really discerning when it comes to sitcoms, so take my word for it--it's great!

My score: 8 (out of 10)
