    I live in Burnaby, near Vancouver BC. Home and same area Michael J Fox lived and went to school too.

    I can't find the DVD set of The King of Queens in Metrotown, Brentwood Mall or any DVD stores.

    Why is it only that show not sold in Canada?

    I don't know why neither set was released in Canada. I had to import mine from the U.S.

    Columbia TriStar doesn't own the home video rights to release the show in Canada.

    I always sort of liked King of Queens. I found it much more comical than most sitcoms.

    Wow thank you very much. I better start taping the episodes. I have cancelled some of my Frasier and 7th Heaven episodes that I own on DVD. Currently in BC Canada they have it playing daily on UPN 14 from 6pm to 7pm, along with That 70's show, then Seinfeld.

    I at one time had every 7th Heaven, Frasier, and Seinfeld episode in order taped. Now that even Seinfeld coming on DVD that is what Im getting next.
    70's show is gonna be expensive to collect and King of Queens so I'll tape them.

    I'd love to own "King of Queens" but since it's not out in Canada, I'll probably have to turn to E-Bay or something. Same goes for "All in the Family". Those sets aren't available here either unfortunately.

    Definately check Ebay. You can get a great deal if you look around a bit.

    I got the first two seasons in mint condition and paid way less than I would have at Futureshop(if they carried it). Its especially a good time to shop with the dollar so high.

    I watch it on UPN whenever I have time. Have you tried phoning around to the other FutureShops? The one in Surrey (Scott Road store) has a much larger selection than the one in Metrotown.

    I originally purchased my sets in Minnesota when was there on vacation in the summer because I couldn't find them here in Toronto. However, last week I noticed them at two different Best buy locations. Unfortunately they are quite expensive, I believe $65.99.
    I can't quite figure out the expense...
