Product Description

Product Description

Everybody Loves Raymond: The Complete First Season (DVD)

Amazon.ca

"Hi, I'm Ray and I live here in Long Island with my wife, Debra." Thus Ray (Ray Romano) introduces himself in the opening to each episode of his Emmy-winning comedy series. He proceeds to mention their children (Ally, Michael, and Geoffrey), then notes as an aside, "It's not really about the kids." He's right--it isn't. They don't even appear in each episode. Everybody Loves Raymond looks like any other family sitcom, but isn't. Everything is just a little bit better. Sure, it isn't as clever as Seinfeld (on which Romano and Brad Garrett appeared in their early days) or as sophisticated as Frasier; nor is it trying to be. The real subject of the show is Ray's relationship with Debra (Patricia Heaton), parents Frank and Marie (Doris Roberts and Peter Boyle), and brother Robert (Garrett).

Everybody Loves Raymond trains a microscope on the day-to-day ephemera of Ray's life. And since he's a sportswriter, a number of sports stars made guest appearances during the first season, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar ("Frank, the Writer") and Terry Bradshaw ("Debra's Sick"), but this will happen less often in the years to come.

On the surface, Ray has an ideal life, but he's always trying to please everyone; and someone inevitably feels left out. Sometimes it's Debra, sometimes Frank and Marie, sometimes Robert, and sometimes his buddies (including King of Queens star Kevin James). Then there are his in-laws (Katherine Helmond and Robert Culp). If this were a different kind of show, Ray would have a breakdown at the end of each episode, but instead he finds a solution to each problem--and it usually comes from Debra. In short order, Everybody Loves Raymond became a top-rated program, with several cast members winning Emmys--numerous times in the case of small-screen scene-stealer Doris Roberts. -- Kathleen C. Fennessy

I have never before seen a television sitcom this good. It's simply amazing. I can still laugh (and laugh, and laugh, and laugh) at an episode I've watched 11 or 12 times before. Not many other shows can do that. My only regret is that I didn't start tuning in earlier. I had been hearing about Raymond for a while, but only in 2002 did I start tuning in. Now I'm more than just a fan, I'm an addict. It's really a great show that anybody and everybody, both young and old, will enjoy immensely.

Everybody Loves Raymond is a very funny show, I was happy today when I found out on Amazon that the first season is finally coming out on DVD! Ray Romano is terrific as Ray Barone and Patricia Heaton is also terrific as his wife Deborah and so are Peter Boyle and Doris Roberts as his bickering parents and Brad Garrett as his older brother who suffers from a bad case of sibling rivlry and they all happen to live across the street. Doris Roberts plays the overcritical mother-in-law to the hilt and is always giving Deborah a hard time and criticizing her cooking, cleaning, etc, and the ongoing conflicts between the two and Ray getting caught in the middle is always amusing. The last year it seems that the sitcoms that they have added to the network lineups have been terrible with absolutely nothing funny about them at all but this show which has been on for at least seven years is still as funny as it was when it first aired on CBS and I'm happy that it's coming out on DVD and I highly recommend it!

Everybody loves Raymond is the most wanted DVD I have been waiting for these years..The Italian-American Family sitcom resembles my family in Taiwan ...I spend lots nights waiting their funky family stories while I was in New York ... it reminds me of the family ties , tension , intimacy ,ethics , parenthood and love ...Most important of all ..the expression of the outstanding casts may be a bit of exaggerated however various awards show how lovely the sitcom is one of the favorite among audience intertionally.I specially love the episodes when Barone family has been invited to Italy meeting their remote relatives....It's like " Life is Wonderful " bring my heart from Long Island to Rome for a tasty Gelato ...I am so glad that the sitcom DVD finally come out and hope to see other seasons soon!

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.

5 stars. Great show. Great quality.

The pilot episode is a bit rough around the edges (as expected) as they iron out characters names and such (the twins get their names changed as well as the actual actors used to play them by episode 2).

The whole cast is outstanding with a special nod to Peter Boyle (Frank Barone) who never fails to get a laugh out of me. It's a shame he passed away a few years ago as he truly was a great actor in a comedic role

This is one of the best and funniest sitcom I've ever watched! Each character is so funny and well picked for their parts. I watched a few episodes here and there on TV, but it's so great to have them all on DVD to watch whenever I please to do so. I recommend this complete first season (and all seasons for that matter) to anyone with a good sense of humour and a great sense of family value!

My wife (Japanese) and I (South African) live in New Zealand, and without fail this show makes us laugh every time we watch it, and makes us feel like our families are with us in our living room. The actors portray their characters superbly. They all deserve Oscars for their performances, especially so for the "Angry family" episode. Can't wait to get this DVD.
