This show should've been renamed "Everybody Hates Raymond" for all the right reasons.
29 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really did not like this show at all when it first came out.

Whenever discussing "Everybody Loves Raymond", I always compare it to "The King of Queens". It seems that having a very crude couple and a mean father wasn't enough for this show. Instead, they needed to add a very cruel old lady, who plays as Raymond's mother and a depressing tall man, who plays as Raymond's brother.

Basically, what this show is all about is a guy, Raymond, played by Ray Romano, who's married with a very push-over wife, has three obnoxious kids, two very cruel parents and a depressing big brother.

"Everybody Loves Raymond" is all about a family made up of some of the most mean and selfish characters there are.

Let me begin, shall I:

1) Ray Romano as "Ray Barone": This show is ALL about Raymond, and not anybody else in his family. Raymond acts like such a whiner, always wanting to get what he wants, always wanting to get his way. It really was very sickening for me to have to sit and watch Raymond's mother tend to his every single little need. You know what, in a real family, one family member, it doesn't even matter if he's the youngest out of the children that the mother gave birth to, should not be able to get everything that he wants. It absolutely does NOT work that way at all. That's how he tries to be all smooth and heartwarming for people in his family to do nice things for him. What a baby!

2) Patricia Heaton as "Debra Barone": So, Debra is the name of Raymond's wife. She does the cooking and the cleaning around the house. It seems that in this show, Debra is always pushed around by Raymond and even by Raymond's mother. I can see now why Debra feels so miserable living across the street from Raymond's parents, because every single little second that there is, they just barge right in without even knocking on the door. I've always despised Debra on this show. She's all moody and sarcastic.

3) Doris Roberts as "Marie Barone": You might as well call this woman the red demon from Hell. Marie has absolutely no feelings for her family whatsoever, except for Raymond. She always does everything for him, leaving out his big brother because I guess mothers just like the little tender ones more. Marie is self-centered, egotistical, selfish and mean. She's always so pushy around everybody. She always gets on Debra's nerves, you can't do anything yourself, you have to have this old bag telling you exactly what you need to do. You know what, someone should just walk up to her, slap her in the face, and tell her simply to "Piss off!". That would've at least made me laugh.

4) Peter Boyle as "Frank Barone": Just like Marie, only this guy plays as the father of Raymond. Frank is another one who also doesn't care about anybody else in the family but himself. Whenever he walks into a room, he immediately sits down in the chair, turns on the TV, and constantly demands for food. He's lazy, mean and self-centered. All he does is lie around, get into a heated argument with Marie in almost every single episode, and, once again, beg for food. I really could not stand him on this show.

5) Brad Garrett as "Robert Barone": Raymond's big brother. Who the hell thinks a guy who speaks in a very deep voice is funny? On the other hand, I also felt kind of sorry for Robert on this show. Because it seems that he gets treated so differently from Raymond in a lot of ways. For example, the mother. The mother gives Raymond anything he wants and Robert gets nothing, Raymond is married and has children, and Robert has a lot of relationship troubles with different women and probably wants to have kids, but no, he just remains single, Raymond has a house of his own, and Robert is left out to fend for himself in a little, old rusty apartment with no food and no money. Even some of the good things that Robert does or gets, Raymond is anything but happy. What Raymond doesn't realize is that he's getting treated 50 times more nicer by his family than Robert is. Now, I'll admit, Robert is kind of dim-witted in some of the episodes, but he's still so much more smarter, stronger and kinder than Raymond is.

I could continue on explaining how terrible these people on this show were forever. I really don't know where people get such ideas for comedy shows like this. If you even count this as a comedy show or as a sitcom, then it's probably the worst comedy show and sitcom I've ever seen in my life, and that is one hell of an accomplishment.

The way that I would've liked to see it end, is if there was some kind of explosion that occurred in either Raymond's or Marie's house, and everyone would've just died right from there.

Well, thank God, this show has finally come to an end because I just couldn't wait for this show to be over and end its nine seasons. This show shouldn't even have been on the air for nine seasons, nor should it have received all the excessive praise it got either. I'm sorry, but I just did not like this show at all.

I also know that this comment will find its way all the way in the back because a lot of people will disagree with me, but I really don't care. "Everybody Loves Raymond", in my opinion, will and always be the worst sitcom that I have ever seen in my life.
