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 »

Innovative
2 December 2003 | by JadedProfSee all my reviews

I just read a review of this show on this site calling the show "absolutely awful." Wrong! This show is, and always has been innovative and creative. Carey and his cast have done things never seen before and have pushed the envelope of mundane sitcoms. We should all be thanking the creators & producers of this show for giving us an alternative to the run-of-the-mill sitcom bilge that has been pumped out over the past few years. One day, this program will be regarded as one of the most influential television program of our time. Thanks Drew, for mixing things up a bit & providing us with pure entertainment.
