Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[Ray just ended a sentence with "at"; Marie is infuriated]
Marie Barone: This is the end of civilization! People like you don't wanna learn or do anything, because they're too busy with their remote control televisions, or playing with their hula hoops, and before you know it,
[shouts]
Marie Barone: that's where we're at!
Frank Barone: Where the cookies at?

This series took me ages to get into
5 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

...but now I'm hooked, and I've even bought 5 DVD boxsets of it! Its weird because its both subtle AND sharp humour.

Its about Ray Romano, a sportswriter who just wants a quiet life...but he has 3 kids (a girl and twin toddler boys) and Debra (his wife) who struggles to juggle housekeeping and being a mother because Ray just will do anything to stay out of her way and not help! Debra is not your typical sitcom mum. She's independent and opinionated, and a very good match for Ray - she keeps him in line!

His Italian American parents (Marie and Frank) and divorced 40 year old brother (Robert) stay in the same street and facing across from Ray & Debra's house. And they are never away from there - The parents are very loud, expressive, overbearing people, but they don't mean to be....It's just their way. The brother is quirky to say the least! he's 7 foot tall and has a voice like Eeyore from the winnie the pooh movies (he IS the voice from the cartoon). He has weird little habits and is a little obsessive compulsive and insanely jealous of his younger brother Ray. However, at heart they are good, caring people and the family are extraordinarily close...but you'd never know it by the drama and shouting that goes on all the time! This is where the comedy comes from....

Now, I am married to an Italian man and I know from experience what Italian in-laws are like! so this might be why I find this so funny....watching Marie (Rays mum) is like watching my MIL (only its not so funny in real life, believe me!!)

If you like Seinfeld, King of Queens (another sitcom which took ages to grow on me), CLASSIC Woody Allen movies, the film Mambo Italiano or My Big Fat Greek Wedding, then you'll like this. Give it a go, watch more than one episode and you'll end up hooked like me - I promise!
