Everybody Loves Raymond

Show Summary

Everybody Loves Raymond revolves around Ray Barone, a successful sportswriter living on Long Island with his wife, Debra, daughter, Ally, and twin sons, Geoffrey and Michael. That's the good news. The bad news? Ray's meddling parents, Frank and Marie, live directly across the street and embrace the motto "Su casa es mi casa," infiltrating their son's home to an extent unparalleled in television history. Frank's favorite expression, "Holy Crap," is shouted at regular intervals, and Marie's "cooking advice" is less than appreciated by Debra. Brother Robert, a divorced policeman, is constantly moving in and out of his parents' house, and loves to drop over and resent Ray's successful career and happy family life. Ray and Debra just wish someone would knock once in a while.

  • Love It!

    Its fun.

    While it has its flaws

    It is a classic
  • Why does Debra seem so overbearing and bossy ?

    I agree that Raymond sometimes seems kind of immature, but he tries to be a good husband, loves his wife and takes care of his family, so he deserves credit for that. Why does Debra seem to get away with being arrogant , selfish and condescending ? Did she marry Raymond because he is the only man that would excuse and continue to accept her attitude? He needs to make some adjustments, but so does Debra, who acts like a spoiled brat sometimes. There should have been an episode made where Debra takes a good look at herself and tries to act more appreciative of her marriage and be glad that Raymond has been so kind all along.moreless
  • I NEVER crack a smile watching this show.

    The only one who is funny is Marie, played by excellent actress Doris Roberts. She is the epitome of a loving grandmother, a meddling parent, and an annoying mother in law. The guilt she puts on her sons is priceless. Other than that, I find Raymond and Robert extremely UNfunny. Frank is not nice, and I don';t think his put downs on his sons is funny one bit. Patricia Heaton is a great actress as Debra, but wow she is always angry. Raymond is a big wimp! I heard he is an atheist, too. Eww.moreless
  • The series ended while still strong.

    Unlike many sitcoms and other TV series, ELR actually got better as time went on. Perhaps both the writers and the actors needed some time to hit their stride. Compare almost any of the main characters - certainly Debra, Marie and Frank were better in the final years than in the first season. And although she's never given much credit, I believe the show got even funnier when Monica Horan became a regular after Robert and Amy got married.

    I've seen some episodes 20 times, and I still laugh.moreless
  • Raymond Sucks

    I really enjoy the shows, except Raymond who is an uncareing, selfesh, rude,into himself,liar who cares about himself and only his pleasures. If this were a real couple Debra should divorce the jerk and take him for everything he's got or ever will have. I watch the 2 or 3 times per day when able and really enjoy it until the idiot comes on. Good luck Barone family, you would be better off without RAYMOND!!!!!moreless

    Quick Question: What TV Shows Are You Guilty of Hate-watching?

    Just like people sometimes keep dating jerks when they know they shouldn't, we sometimes can't stop ourselves from hate-watching shows that make us cringe and shout and roll our eyes.
