Seinfeld, M.A.S.H, Cheers, Frazier, The Simpsons, Curb your Enthusiasm or going back far in time, the Phil Silvers Show, I Love Lucy and the Honeymooners. All are superb shows and all are regularly mentioned when classic American TV comedy is being discussed. Surely deserving a place alongside these greats is the consistently wonderful Everybody Loves Raymond. ELR boasts a fantastic cast (possibly Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Doris Roberts, Peter Boyle and Brad Garrett constitute perhaps the best ever cast in a TV show), brilliantly funny scripts and likeable characters; but where can you normally find it on British TV? Usually on an obscure channel in the middle of the morning when most of us are at work. Wonderful.
Now though, thanks to this set of DVD's I now own every single episode made and I can watch them whenever I want. This must be one of the best buys ever; 44 discs, 210 episodes, behind the scene interviews, out takes and lots of other extra stuff, this set will give hours and hours and hours of entertainment.
For me, this DVD collection was a must buy and I have not been disappointed. Everybody Loves Raymond is a show that I can watch over and over and not be embarrassed to watch along with my young daughter. This DVD set will definitely get plenty of use in my house.
