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 Season 2 episode 6, it is Frank and Marie's 40th wedding anniversary. In this episode it is revealed that Robert is 4 years older than Ray. In episode 10 of the same season, it is Ray's 20 year high school reunion. This means Raymond is around 38 in this season, which mean Robert is 42. This means that Robert was born 2 years before Frank and Marie got married. See more »
In one of the episodes, Raymond is talking to Debra. If you look at Ray's shirt, it is clean. Next shot, it is dirty. It keeps doing this. See more »
I'm not a big fan of TV. I think most of it is terribly contrived and has very little to do with the lives of normal people. This show is different. The fights they get into, the disputes, everything is true and funny. Ray is the beleaguered protagonist and his parents and brother are absolute scene stealers. This show is just wonderful. The writing is good and I can really see these sorts of things happening in my family. It is much easier to watch when it is someone else's family though.
