Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
The Banks family, a respectable Californian family, take in a relative - Will Smith, a street-smart teenager from Philadelphia. The idea is to make him respectable, responsible and mature, but Will has got other plans...
Ray Barone seemingly has it all. A wonderful wife, a beautiful family, a great job, a nice house on Long Island. There's only one problem. His obnoxious parents (who live across the street) and his jealous brother are always getting in the way. Written by
In one particular episode, one of the actors accidentally refers to Doug Heffernan (of King of Queens, as played by Kevin James) as "Kevin" - his real life name. Kevin James appeared 9 times in "Everybody Loves Raymond." In the first six appearances, during seasons one and two, his character was simply referred to as "Kevin." In the final three appearances, during season three, he portrayed his "Doug Heffernan" character from "The King of Queens." This is probably because the final appearance as "Kevin" took place in May of 1998, while "The King of Queens" did not debut until September of 1998. See more »
I love this show. It's hilarious. It has the weird, over protective, annoying, critical mother, the gross, dim-witted father who yells a lot, the over-looked first born brother, and the "perfect" second born son who writes for a newspaper and has a wife and 3 kids. In one way or another, you'll be able to relate with this show. I get mad when I miss an episode, even if I've already seen it. They're all so funny. The acting, writing, and directing are all wonderful. I think it's one of the best shows out there. If you like comedies about real life that aren't cheesy (like those so-called Disney channel comedies) you'll love this show just like I do.
