Storyline

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 <jgp3553@excite.com>

Trivia

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.

User Reviews

Timeless humour in the classic mould.
8 April 2003 | by (Blue Mountains, Australia) – See all my reviews

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.
