  • Ally sleeps in her parent's bed.

    Everybody Loves Raymond was groundbreaking upon its arrival on the TV scene in 1996 for it's accurate, and hard-hitting depiction of true family life. While the shawn spawned several immitations and its own spin-off The King of Queens, it also dabbed into generic territory in some of its episodes.



    Right off the bat we get a typical sitcom euphemism for one's private area from so-called witty standup comedian Ray Romano. What later ensues is a plethora of marriage jokes and unfunny one liners from the Barone family. While fans of the show often enjoy Frank Barone for his free-spirited, and downright ignorant verbal thrashing of his family, even the most die-hard viewers would not laugh at his clever "gems" in this installment. The almost always amusing Marie also seemed to give a phoned in performance in this program.



    Incorporating young children into comedy is risky as younger viewers will usually embrace something that speaks to their generation, while older audiences will be baffled and unable to discern why this is plaguing their television screen.



    ELR is a legendary program, but this humdrum is inexcusable.moreless
