The Where's Lunch production company logo shows a plate of food being placed on a dining table with a red checkered table cloth. Each episode has its own unique plate of food. On the final episode, a check is presented instead of a plate of food. The check reads "No Charge. Thank You." See more »
It took me a long time to get into this show because most of my friends kept putting it down. I'm now addicted to ELR and bad luck if nobody else I know admits to watching it! Apart from 'Becker' no other current American comedies really appeal to me.
What do I like about ELR? The way Ray sets off events without knowing how, then stands back and watches the results of his unconscious actions. Both the cast and the scripts are first-rate. Robert of course has to be my favourite character; he reminds me in some ways of Jack Benny. Favourite episode has to be the one in which Ray's parents back the car through the front wall. One of the great moments of television!
Long may this series continue.
