      The King Of Queens stars Kevin James, Leah Remini, and Jerry Stiller. This is one of my favorite comedy shows and I eagerly look forward to each episode. The opening comical skits are always funny and set the tone for the rest of the show.

      The writing is original, but does borrow a little from the greatest comedy series of all times, The Honeymooners. No one can forget the lines “Pow, right to the moon, Alice” and “Baby, you’re the greatest”.

      In this same way we can see Doug

      and Carrie fight throughout each show, while knowing that at the end they will make up. When Carrie berates Doug with, “If you want to wear the pants, then you might want to think about pulling them up,” you still know that she loves this butterball husband of hers.

      When Doug points out how pushy she is, you also see his love for her. The fatter that Kevin James gets the funnier he is, just like Gleason.

      On the other hand I did not like seeing Leah Remini put on the ...

      • pounds, because Alice never did. Bitchy is okay if it comes from a hotty, but no one wants to see it from a fatty.

        Also, just like Ralph Kramden, Doug is a dreamer who always seems to fall short in his attempt to better his and Carrie’s life. And just like Alice, Carrie accepts his failures because she truly loves him.

        The supporting cast is also exceptional. The yelling Jerry Stiller, as the father in law, is a great actor and has maintained his whacky character in

        many series.

        It made me feel good that he can live with Doug and Carrie and even though he is a crazy old man, they still love him. Doug’s friends are all exceptional and Deacon and Kelly are key elements to the show.

        They are the normal couple that allows the audience to put the Heffernans in perspective. The use of facial humor is another key aspect of this serie’s success.

        In short, I like this family as much as I liked the Kramden’s and here is an example of the benefits of copying a winner.
