Audio Commentary:Four optional audio commentaries ("Counseling," "Just a Formality," "Meeting the Parents," "Baggage") with series creator Phil Rosenthal, Ray Romano, Chris Elliott, Monica Horan, Anna Romano Fred Willard and writers Mike Royce and Tucker Cawley.
The relationship between woebegone Robert and Amy is a delight, especially because viewers get to meet her parents this season. Fred Willard (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) and Georgia Engel (The Mary Tyler Moore Show) play Amy's conservative parents who'd rather see their daughter remain single than marry into the Barone family. Chris Elliott also guest stars as Amy's spoiled, unemployed brother who likes to stir things up between the two clans. The show's success always has been less about completely out-there premises than taking a slice of everyday life--helping the kids with their homework, sharing chores, dealing with in laws--and presenting them in a comical manner. In the real world, a lazy husband like Ray wouldn't be nearly as cuddly. And an interfering mother-in-law like Marie would not be tolerated by most wives. But on Everybody Loves Raymond, they're two of the main reasons why viewers consistently tuned in to this hit sitcom. --Jae-Ha Kim

"Raymond's" seventh season maintains the similar low-key, hilarious formula without going overboard for "better" ratings--an impressive trait that has left the series as one of the classiest contemporary shows you can hope to find. This 2004-2005 year opens with the Barones taking drastic actions to clear up the Debra/Marie feud that left everyone hanging at the end of Season 6. From there, Robert starts dating a girl who seems perfect until the family learns about some of her strange snacking habits, and Frank has a heart-to-heart with little Ally after an incident at the supermarket finally shows him how his behavior impacts his grandchildren. There is a special wedding proposal (complete with lots of squad cars and Marie-style shrieks), a few important invitations get botched (compliments of guess who?), one of the Barones lands in jail (here's a clue: it's the very last person you'd expect), a suitcase on the stairs temporarily interrupts the flow of daily life, and the Robert/Amy relationship finally receives its overdue glory in a humorous and equally touching 2-hour season finale.Read more ›
I've done some searches online to see if HBO Video can be contacted about it, but of course, many Google searches have turned up nothing so far. Here's hoping that someone from HBO home video reads this and is the slightest bit concerned with selling a flawed product, but I wouldn't bank on it.
I thought TV to DVD was the greatest thing in the world at one time, but as more and more series are released to DVD with syndicated cuts of episodes, the more I feel like never buying another set of any series until I get verification that every episode is complete.
"The Cult": This episode concludes the "Mother's Day"/"The Bigger Person"/ "The First Time" issue from Season 6 where Debra and Marie stop talking to each other because Marie got bent out of shape when Debra wouldn't drop everything to let her kids tell knock-knock jokes in front of her friends. Robert can't handle the tension between his mom and sister-in-law, so he joins a group called "The Inner Path." This phase doesn't last long, so they use it to bring together the bickering broads. The whole 4-episode-long storyline was really reaching and the ending lame.
"Counseling": Raymond and Debra have an even more heated argument than usual over cleaning the house and then they find out their friends are seeing a therapist. When they make an appointment, Raymond knows all the right things to say which exasperates Debra. Then Raymond makes a shocking confession.
"Homework": Raymond goes on a crusade against the mountains of homework Ally's getting since Debra is making him help her.Read more ›
