    Liked the show at first but by the end of its run I hated every single character.

    Except Frank. He was great from start to finish.

    I hated the mother. I annoyed my family with how much I hated her.

    But yes, Frank was great. He was always great.

    This is one show I'd be happier about if had failed as a pilot and never taken off. All of the characters are annoying, shallow and skirting the lines of genuine retardation.

    I enjoy King of Queens a lot more, but I do enjoy the Raymond cameos in KoQ :)

    Absolutely hated the show, to the point that I actually e-mailed CBS and asked them to change the title because it was false advertising. Ie - I did not love Raymond, ergo "Everybody Loves Raymond" is incorrect; I did suggest the alternate title of "A Significant Portion of the Population Enjoys the Comedic Antics of Raymond". Unsurprisingly, they didn't reply and I assume I'm now on a 'list' somewhere.

    I only caught it here-and-there. I liked it. I don't remember everyone's name but Frank was hilarious. I hated Ray's mom, though. What a coniving, self-center irredeemable BITCH she was. But whereas Frank was open with his jerkiness, she always tried to hide it or make it seem like it was someone else's fault. I think she's the reason I never got in to the show.

    I remember watching reruns of that show years back.

    That show was awesome.

    Robert and Frank really were the only reasons I watched the show. The rest of the cast was lackluster at best.

    I loathe(d) it too. In my view it's not possible for anyone to even like Raymond, let alone 'love' him. The character (and hopefully not true personality of Ray Romano) is such a toxic little ball of whinging impotence yet - unbelievably - we are supposed to root for him! :eek: 

    I would suggest a title change to 'Raymond is a selfish moaning c***'. It's not as catchy as yours though...

    Yeah, I found none of the characters likable at all. Everyone was a jerk. Awesome Maxx sig, DeathsHead.

    This. It also helps that Leah Rimini is real easy on the eyes. :)

    But presumably not Ray himself. Yet he's an utter prick. And his dads an ass. And his wife needs a clip round the ear. So that only leaves me with the brother who gets away with it by being...a simpleton?

    I dunno - I just never seen the appeal in watching such a bunch of unlikeable people in a supposed 'light' sitcom. King of Queens is far superior though I wouldn't go out of my way to watch that either.
