The show works at its best when combining pathos with humor. Unsatisfied with their sex life, Raymond complains to his wife, "So you can stay up to read, but you can't stay up two minutes for sex?" Debra, who can be so outspoken, is unable to express her sexual desires to her husband. Ray finally breaks the ice by asking, "Are you going to tell me what you want?" Debra purrs back, "I want you to help me with the laundry." Raymond is not above putting his needs above his wife's. When Debra decides to run for school president, he sabotages her chances so he won't have to stay home alone with the kids. With his hangdog features and dry delivery, Romano (Ice Age) does an admirable job as Ray--a grown man who longs for the simplicities of his childhood when his mother took care of everything. Of course, that affection comes with a price. "I don't want you in the middle," she tells him during a family spat. "I want you on my side." Unlike the perfect families depicted on The Cosby Show or The Brady Bunch, the Barones are flawed. They bicker, simmer, and stew. But most importantly, they laugh. --Jae-Ha Kim

There are the usual commentaries with Ray Romano, Phil Rosenthal, and some crew members. Patricia Heaton wasn't scheduled to be part of this season's commentaries, which is disappointing, but we get to hear Doris Roberts this time, and even though Romano and Rosenthal talk a lot more than she does in the commentary she's in, it's still fun to get some of her insights. I was especially excited to see that they included a commentary track for "Talk to Your Daughter," which has a storyline about daughter Ally and includes an adorable scene at the very end with Ally and the twins. It was nice to see the cast and crew talk a little bit more about the kids (not much, but they mentioned them a couple times at least). That was one thing that was missing on the first 5 DVD sets, and I'm happy that they've included it here.
Some notable episodes from this well-written and successful season include "The Angry Family," where a school essay from little Michael shows the Barone adults that their daily snits with each other are not going unnoticed; "Marie's Sculpture," where Marie makes an absolutely outrageous creation that outdoes even herself; "Cookies," where poor Ray gets more or less beat up by Ally's pushy troop leader; and "Mother's Day," which begins a string of several episodes that chronicles Debra and Marie's biggest fight yet, and shows how it impacts the entire family. Some fans may be interested to know that they initially wanted to stretch the Debra/Marie estrangement for the entire Season 7, but they decided it "wouldn't have been much of a show if they just left the men to talk to each other.Read more ›
I was glad the very last episode of ELR was so good but, generally speaking, season 7-9 din't do it for me, I found Robert's in-laws to be a lot more irritating than funny, specially Chris Eliott who I simply can't stand.
By purchasing only seasons 1-6 I will be able to remmember ELR at its very best so this is where I get off.
