Nowadays you just don't see many shows on TV that are worth watching. Everybody loves Raymond is a show that portrays what seems to be a realistic family and they deal with realistic everyday life problems. Such include problems with the parents- in-law, in marriage, in raising children, etc. This show has helped me look at society with a more critical eye also. I am currently a student at the University of California at Berkeley majoring in Sociology and Social Welfare and I find so many themes that we've spoken about in my classes here. The complexity of the characters and of the problems they face provide the viewer with a funny, yet educational, portrayal of family life.

The first season of "Raymond" is very different in tone and delivery than it was in years to come. Many shows hit their stride right out of the box and others have to adapt to the talents on hand and run with things that explode later on. It took a while for the writers of "Raymond" to find the voice of each character and form them accordingly. The now-iconic personalities didn't gel until the middle of the first season. But when they did, it became a legend.

The writers weren't the only ones searching about. As just one example, actor Brad Garrett tinkered around before he found the literal voice of Robert: He completely altered his delivery from a coarse baritone to a mopey bass as he learned what clicked with the audience.

It's fun watching the characters develop and the actors begin to own their parts. Romano will readily admit he's the weakest actor but - like Jerry Seinfeld - he tethers the rest of the cast together. And what a cast! Special props to Patty Heaton. She goes so much against the "beleaguered sitcom wife" stereotype that it's absolutely refreshing.

My only complaint? No Play All function. In fact, this is one of those annoying formats that makes you go through two menus to watch each episode. Play All should be industry standard by now.

It's one of my favorite shows. However since it's no longer prime, I'm not going to pay extra to watch it. Highly dissapointed in the change. Already have some of the seasons on, dvds will buy others at the store for a decent price

When EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND got started, back in 1996, it started out at a slow and unassuming pace, introducing us to the delightfully off-the-wall shenanigans of the Barone family. Ray Barone (Ray Romano) is a sports writer with two beautiful twin boys and a daughter (all played by the Sweetin children, younger siblings of Jodi Sweetin of FULL HOUSE fame), as well as a long suffering wife, Debra (Patricia Heaton), his older brother, Robert (Brad Garrett) and his parents, Marie (Doris Roberts) and Frank (Peter Boyle of YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN fame).

What sets this show apart from other programs is its matter-of-fact approach to the trials and tribulations of a very close knit family (sometimes, painfully close knit!). These early episodes really set the pace for future episodes that only grew more and more hilarious. The formative shows introduced us to the neurotic Robert, who went through a painful divorce and moved back in with his parents. His mother, Marie, is overbearing, perfectionist and narcissistic, yet, she also genuinely wants what's best for her kids. Granted, Ray and Robert are both in their mid thirties. Frank, on the other hand, is unabashedly blunt, harsh and apathetic to human suffering (with the exception of the time he spent in Korea during the war). Ray is an overgrown man-child wh married the more sophisticated Debra, and there are times when both of them wonder how they even ended up together! Yet, at the end of the day, they sincerelly love each other. This is a great program and I definitely reccomend this DVD, as a fine way to get started on your RAYMOND addiction.
