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 »

My favorite show
23 June 2005 | by saint405See all my reviews

Drew Carey is one of the unluckiest guys on the face of the Earth. He has a no where job in a department store, he lives in his parents old house, and he can never seem to be a good boyfriend. This is the best show ever! When you think of a good sitcom you usually first think of Seinfeld or Friends. The Drew Carey Show over powers them all! All I do when I watch this show is laugh and laugh! Sometimes I can relate with Drew, the main character who can show how bad life really is. But besides Drew , Ryan Stiles as Drews friend Lewis takes the cake as best character. Every time he talks about his job at DrugCo. I bet you can't stop from cracking a smile. Example: "We finally taught dolphins how to speak in human down at DrugCo." "Really, Wow! What do they say?" "Oh you know the usual, "Stop! I'll talk, I'll talk, just quit shocking me!" Along with Lewis is the dimwitted Oswald Harvey the delivery man. Together these two would just crack you up by building a house in the park by circus clowns or breaking their vents by playing mission imposable. Besides the two lunk heads is the only girl in the group, Kate. Throughout the series you'll see how relationships between Drew and Kate expand and shrink. Meet Drew's annoying boss Mr. Wick, Drew's cross dressing brother Steve, and Drew's ultimate nemeses Mimi. With this show you won't only get comedy you'll get love, drama, beer, and practical jokes between cubicles.You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll get a hint of genius. So sit back, grab a drink, and enjoy the best show ever!
