Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A recurring theme throughout Everybody Loves Raymond's excellent eighth season might be, "No good deed goes unpunished." In the episode "Misery Loves Company," annoyingly happy newlyweds Robert (Brad Garrett) and Amy (Monica Horan) offer unwanted marriage advice to Raymond (Ray Romano) and Debra (Patricia Heaton) and even in-laws Frank (Peter Boyle) and Marie (Doris Roberts), who gives them a reality check on what marriage really is ("You plow through"). In "The Ingrate," Raymond pays tribute to Debra in his newspaper column after forgetting to acknowledge her in a speech, only to raise the ire of a resentful Marie. In "Debra at the Lodge," Debra volunteers at Frank's lodge, only to become an object of lust for the randy elderly members (this season, Debra begins to blossom as a suburban goddess in the grand Laura Petrie tradition).

After eight seasons, we know these characters like our own family members. So, much of each episode's comedy is built upon our anticipation of how they will react to each other, as when Marie catches Raymond and Debra in an escalating series of lies or when the Barones share Thanksgiving with Amy's more uptight family, who, she observes at one point, "wouldn't yell if they were on fire." In one of the season's best episodes, Debra seizes on a rift between Marie and family newcomer Amy over thank-you notes to shift the balance of power from the manipulative and Machiavellian Marie (as always, a losing battle).

Raymond is one of those rare sitcoms that stayed on top of its game during its nine-year run. This penultimate season is filled with classic episodes and priceless moments. The incisive and intimately observed writing, brought to life by the peerless, Emmy-winning ensemble, could turn on a dime from funny to genuinely moving. In "Golf for It," the season finale, Raymond and Robert pull an all-nighter waiting for a tee-time. Their conversation turns to the indomitable Marie, and which of the brothers will care for her in her dotage. Marriage, as Paul Rudd's character observes in Knocked Up, "is like a tense, unfunny version of Everybody Loves Raymond." But the secret to Raymond's enduring success is that it's funny because it's true. --Donald Liebenson

Ever since the inaugural season of "Everybody Loves Raymond" found its way to DVD in September 2004, the company releasing the seasons settled on a "3-per-year" plan--one in September, December, and May--until all 9 seasons were out. Loyal fans were shocked and nervous to find no Season 8 in stores in its due month--December 2006--but with the set slated for delivery in May, all of the worrying is offically over! :)

Just about everyone who loves this series is familiar with its remarkable success on television. Many TV shows are lucky to just get some noteworthy material in its later years, but "Raymond" is an incredible exception--it has always characterized fresh writing, hysterically funny storylines, and priceless banter between the Barone characters we have grown to love.

With soulmates Robert and Amy finally married and savoring the "newlywed" life together, Season 8 opens with a hilarious bang. What will Marie do to hound her new daughter-in-law the second she and Robert return from their honeymoon--and how far will Debra go to make an ally out of Amy so that together, they may overthrow Marie's meddlesome ways for good? If that sounds like good old "Raymond" material to you, then you're absolutely right--and it is sure to keep you laughing all the way through.

Beyond the classic episode entitled "Thank You Notes," the entire year sparkles with plenty of great moments. Because Amy is now an official member of the family, so are her kooky-as-heck parents and brother--and for the Barone clan, that means unannounced visitors on the couch, Thanksgiving celebrations that are even more dysfunctional than usual, and poor Robert's perpetual fight to earn the respect of his wife's tightly-wound parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars eight wasn't enough for RAYMOND...... June 1, 2007
Format:DVD
I am happy to say that the eighth season of EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND was brilliantly funny, and the addition of Fred Willard, Georgia Engel and Chris Elliott as Amy Barone (Monica Horan)'s father, mother and brother were a great choice indeed. For starters, the Puritan beliefs are a great contrast to the outrageous antics of Ray Barone (Ray Romano)'s parents, Frank (Peter Boyle) and Marie (Doris Roberts). They make several appearances during the course of season eight. What's more, the rest of the ensemble maintains a joyous atmosphere of neurosis and genuinely human flaws. Celebrate their faultiness with them, here, and you won't regret it for a minute.

5.0 out of 5 stars ELR Season 8 = 5 July 8, 2007
Format:DVD
Everybody Loves Raymond - The Complete Eighth Season hits its stride early and sustains it throughout the season's episodes. The Robert and Amy relationship takes center stage as Debra tries to enlist Amy to her side of the battle between her and Marie. A standout episode this season involves the Thanksgiving Day episode featuring Amy's family and a hurt bird. The sparkling clean parents' of Amy clash with the Robert's parents (Frank and Marie). Fortunately, Amy's brother is a freak that is the great equalizer. A great season in a great series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, yet familiar May 22, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After eight seasons, the Barones are still bringing new laughs in every episode -- especially now that the family has expanded to include the parents and brother of Robert's new bride, Amy.

New territory is covered, as Ally enters her teens, as well the familiar neverending saga of power struggles between Ray and Debra, and Debra and Marie. Another episode features Debra attempting to build closeness by golfing with Ray -- of course, with disatrous results!

The great thing about this series is its ability to make comedy out of everyday life. The Barones never need to look too far for subject matter -- even little things, like the promptness with which Robert and Amy write thank-you notes for their wedding gifts, is enough to set the family's penchant for drama in motion.

This box set also throws in a number of extra, such as bloopers and deleted scenes. Those are always a welcome bonus...but really, this superb series needs nothing extra to attract viewers.

Every other season of this show was 5 stars; however, season 8 only gets 4 because of the way they made Robert, the brother into an absolute monster, betraying his brother, hurting his sister-in-law, in ways that were too extreme to be funny. I've started season 9 now, and already it is better. The addition to the show of Amy's mother is a treat!

It always makes me laugh no matter how many times I see it. You can really relate if you have kids and you never know what they will do to make you cringe.
