`Everybody Loves Raymond' was not as popular here as it was in the States, mainly because it was only shown on terrestrial TV at strange hours of the morning on Channel 4. That's a shame because it is a good deal better and funnier than a great many sitcoms, even if it wasn't as `cutting edge' as some of its contemporaries (it ran around the same time as `Seinfeld').

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.

Not knowing anything about this sitcom I was not expecting much from 'Raymond' when I first watched it on Channel Four. It followed 'Friends' and I thought that it would be poor in comparison.
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.

If you want to laugh, buy this boxset. Ray's parents and brother Robert steal the show and will have you crying tears of laughter. If you love it- great news- there are lots more seasons to get to love Raymond even more!

I first got into ELR whilst living in the states, i can honestly say out of all 'hit' american sitcoms this stands out a mile, not only is the casting fantastic, there is not one weak character anmongst them. The writing is incredibly funny, just the day to day lives of Ray & his overbearing family has me in stitches, i think the best part of it is they look & interact like a 'normal' family, none of your catwalk queens swanning around in the latest Ralph Lauren here, I think the best character has to be his loutish father Frank, played by the fantastic Peter Boyle, the way he interacts with the rest of the family with his life revolving around sandwiches, anyway enough already, get into it u wont regret it!

This series is so good it really is. With shows Like will and grace getting huge audiences shows like this don't get decent coverage . Ray Romano the shows producer/star mixes great one liners with great comedic performances. Its a story of a dyfunctional father trying to best for his family and it's miscaps along the way. The timing of the jokes is perfect and the suporting cast are incredible and their performances are credible . The DVD is a must have for all comedy fans .

well no, but lets not put this down, let me explain. I started watching the odd episode on C4 early in the morning and this program grows on you, after about 10 episodes you need more, Hense I purchased season 1. I had never viewed this from episode one and was interested to know how it all got started.Basically Ray is married to Deborah and they live across the road from his parents who are allways popping in without knocking and helping out. Ray has an older brother Robert who is a policeman, each character is funny in their own right and the laughs come thick and fast.The shows get better as the series develops but stick with this IT IS EXTREAMLY FUNNY. The box set has extras interviews etc and a very funny gag reel. Buy this YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED.
