King of Queens has always been one of my favorite shows, it's something that I still watch because it makes me laugh. This TV show featured Leah Remini as Carrie and Kevin James as Doug Heffernan along with Carrie's father in the show, Arthur who was played by Jerry Stiller.

Some relate this TV couple to another popular duo, from The Honeymooners, Ralph and Alice Kramden played by Jackie Gleason and Audrey Meadows.

Each King of Queens episode is unique and unpredictable as Carrie who is sassy and Doug who is more laid back but expresses his humor throughout the show. Doug's occupation is a delivery driver while Carrie's role is a legal secretary.

There have been several episodes of the King of Queens where Doug and Carrie talk about going upstate.

If you pay close attention, Doug and Carrie mention that they visit when they escape New York City and head upstate.

During the episode of China Syndrome including Part 1 and Part 2, Doug mentions a Hudson Valley town and city.

While I was watching this episode, I gasped when Doug roasted this Dutchess County, NY location. 

Doug, who is played by Kevin James, has visited the Hudson Valley before. His statement in this episode questions how he truly thinks of a home to many Hudson Valley residents.

In the China Syndrome episode, Doug goes outside of a wedding venue that they are attending after the two of them were fighting throughout the night.

Carrie finds Doug outside and questions him of where he has been. Doug's response is " Just enjoying the smells of Poughkeepsie" as he continues to drink his alcoholic beverage.

Did Doug roast Poughkeepsie too hard in this episode? Have you ever watched this one before? Share with us below.
