Raymond, his wife Debra, and their three kids live across the street from Ray's meddling parents and divorced brother. The parents go in and out of Ray and Debra's house as they please. Although probably not as funny as the third season, this season is still a solid one. The supporting staff (Patricia Heaton, Brad Garrett, Peter Boyle, and Doris Roberts) are often funnier than Ray Romano! A generous season with 25 episodes.

1. Ray's on TV: Ray gets a chance to appear on a sports chat show.

2. Father Knows Least: Ray uses a new technique that he learned in parenting class on his parents.

3. Brother: Ray and Robert go out on the anniversary of Robert's divorce.

4. Mozart: Ray tries to teach Ally a lesson about quitting piano.

5. Golf: Ray feels guilty after he tricks Debra into letting him play golf.

6. Anniversary: At his parent's 40th wedding anniversary celebration, Ray learns that his parents were once separated.

7. Working Late Again: Ray sets up his office at home.

8. The Children's Book: Debra decides to write a children's book and asks Raymond for help.

9. The Gift: Ray gets his dad an expensive aquarium.

10. High School: Ray takes Debra to his 20th high school reunion.

11. The Letter: Marie crashes Debra's Tupperware party.

As with any successful television series with as many seasons as Everybody Loves Raymond, it is always fun to revisit episodes like these. The characters are still not quite as heavily developed as they were around Season 3 (and it really wasn't until Season 4 until they truly took off), but it is still a nice step up from Season 1 and contains some fresh, funny episodes that all fans will love.

These earliest seasons of ELR focus a lot more on Ray and Debra and their young family. The kids probably appear in this season a lot more than they do later on, and it's fun to see how Ray and Debra battled with juggling three such little kids. They were also considerably nicer to each other back in these days, and episodes like "Marie's Meatballs" and "The Letter" are hilarious because at this point, Debra still has not quite grasped how manipulative and crazy her overbearing mother-in-law can be. Believe it or not, there actually was a point in the series where Debra truly believed that the concept of a successful, mature conversation with Marie really existed! Look no further than Season 2--it is just hysterical.

As much as I adore this show, I think they got slightly, slightly over the top in the last two seasons, with Debra throwing a hissy fit about absolutely everything, Marie being way over the line, etc... On the whole, they kept the series classy and fun right up to the end, but like I said it is still nice to go back to the lighter episodes that make up the first couple of seasons.

In its second season the show was moved to its familiar 9:30/8:30 central timeslot and focused mainly on fleshing out the characters more thoroughly. The early rivalry between Debra and Marie can be seen in the episodes "Marie's Meatballs" and "The Letter", while Ray and Robert get on each others nerves in "Brother" and "The Ride Along". Writer Tucker Cawley (who eventually won a writing Emmy for the season seven episode, "Baggage") writes two of the season's worst episodes. Cawley was always a natural storyteller more so than a comedian and it took him a few seasons before he was able to integrate quality jokes into his plot driven scripts, which he does successfully in "Good Girls". The season opener has jokes that only an English professor could appreciate while "Civil War" is your typical "son looking for acceptance from his father" story.

"T-Ball" is an underrated episode and Traffic Cop Timmy makes a memorable appearance in "Traffic School", painting Robert as a sympathetic figure. A funny season, but not as consistently funny as seasons 3-5.

I am a VERY late comer to Everybody Loves Raymond. I had seen it a few times but didn't become a regular viewer until season 8. Thank God for re-runs and DVD sets that are now allowing me to catch up on everything I missed. Oddly enough, I decided to start with season Two as the first I purchased on DVD. The reason being that the first seasons of most sitcoms are usually so very rough and the show and cast usually aren't quite developed yet. I wanted to watch the show when the characters were going to be more like what I know from coming in late to the game.

I was not disapointed and I am sure I will pick up season one afterall. Season two really had all of the elements that I love show much about the show and the characters just look a little younger. And of course there is frequent appearances by Kevin James before he would get his own sitcom, "The King of Queens".

I really enjoyed the set from the get-go...25 glorious episodes in all. I won't summarize all 25, but here are a few of my favorites from season two:

"Anniversary" - At a big surprise party for Frank and Marie's 40th wedding anniversary, Raymond is shocked to learn that his parents were once separated for a year and might have gotten divorced if Frank hadn't returned home to help with Ray's broken arm. After the initial shock wears off, Ray starts to wonder if it's his fault that his parents are together and miserable.

"The Letter" - When Marie ruins her Tupperware party, Debra decides that she's had just about enough of her mother-in-law's constant interference. She writes a letter to her Marie, telling her to stop intruding into her life. Horrified by the problems that this letter might trigger, Ray does everything in his power to intercept the offending document.
