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
Raymond Barone considers Peggy (the cookie lady) as his archenemy. See more »
In Season 2, Episode 25, Raymond meets Debra's priest Father Hubley, in a flashback episode featuring Ray and Debra's wedding. However, throughout the rest of the series, Father Hubley is portrayed as the Barone family's priest. This portrayal includes the Season 6, Episode 24 flashback episode during which Marie brings Father Hubley to Debra's house long before the wedding. See more »
Someone once posted a comment about Marie being a disappointment for seniors everywhere. The big part of it is this, that Raymond's mother is an exaggerated form of Phil Rosenthal and Ray Romano's Mother also, I don't get why people believe like with The Cosby Show (as far as black representation) that the seniors on the show have to represent ALL seniors or the majority of them.
In Seinfeld, I know a couple that was similar to George's parents, but that doesn't mean that they are the representation or the unique representation of seniors everywhere. It is a TV show that is based on the families of the writers and the creators of which Phil Rosenthal and Ray Romano are. Also, my mother isn't as overprotective as Marie is but I don't go around yelling about how Marie isn't like her. TV is representative of not only people but of the way writers see them as well as the characters and how they act. Good writing takes this and makes it known to the audience.
