A lot of people, I think, were put off simply by the premise, as from that it sounds like it would just be another stupid family-based American sitcom. Okay, so it is a family-based sitcom, but it's by no means stupid and the Barones are not your average American family, despite the suburban setting.
The premise is this: journalist Ray lives with his wife Debra and 3 children, directly across the street from Ray's parents - interfering if well-meaning Marie and irascible Frank (a kind of more outspoken Victor Meldrew) - as well as Ray's often hilariously jealous brother Robert.
A lot of the humour is derived from subverting the suburban setting and everyday events which the stories revolve around. And while some of the references are less relevant to a British audience, there is still a lot of observational comedy which we can relate to.
Series 1 is not quite as sharp as later series, and the actors are still getting into their strides, but it is still very well-written and performed and there is a lot to laugh at. It's the kind of seemingly effortless comedy that makes you wonder why we can't do it anymore.
Marie and Frank set the pattern. Marie, Ray's mother thinks that Ray is still 10 years old, and that his perfect wife (Debra) is not good enough for him. Frank, his father, is the original grumpy old man, who's only interests are TV, food, and a healthy disregard for anything anyone says...
Robert, Ray's jealous brother, is also a New York cop, his laconic phrase 'Everybody loves Raymond' provides the shows title. Ray himself, played by Ray Romano, is just an average guy trying to get through life without too much trouble (and maybe play a little golf). However the comedy builds as average situations are expanded by the input of all his family....
This is comedy we can relate to... we've all been there on occasion...(and possibly know one or two of the characters ourselves!).. Unfortunately, Ray gets it full time but always manages to come out with some hilarious response. The DVD is five discs and represents excellent value for money at nearly 10 hours worth..... Try it, you'll like it.. if not 'Love' it
The 1st series gently introduces you to the Barone family, from the original pilot show you know something good is going to happen if you keep watching, so you do! From Marie who is every daughter in law's worst nightmare to Frank who is really a big kid in an adults body, we all know people like these so it's really easy to relate to them. I've introduced my friends to this series and the responces I've received from them were all positive, so I think everybody really DOES love Raymond!
I was in for a pleasant surprise.
Everybody Loves Raymond is one of those rare sitcoms where not only do you find the script extremely funny but you also begin to associate yourself with the characters. At first glance the family seems to be the usual dysfunctional sitcom creation but then you see how familiar and likeable they actually are. Each one is quite different and have their own crazy traits which contribute to the storylines but none of them are so extreme that you cannot relate to their behaviour.
This is all well and good but all sitcoms live and die by the number of laughs they generate. Once again you cannot fault Raymond as each episode explores the natural conflict between Ray and his wife Debra or with Ray's parents or with Ray's brother etc. Each plot develops into a number of different hilarious situations but concludes with the realisation that the family is just trying to look out for each other.
This series is a real gem and one you really need to experience before making a judgement.
