Anyone remember this show?
Was this that documentary series about Raymond Burr?
Everybody Loves Raymond (TV Series 1996–2005) - IMDb
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.
Yeah, I remember that show. In fact, its airing on Eleven right now.
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 love that show.
Found this in my old sigs folder
No idea why garrett is trypty, wtf me
I remember watching reruns of that show years back.
That show was awesome.
Brad Garrett voiced Trypticon, that's why.
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!
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.
Marie( The Mother ) was meant to be loatheful...
I love hating her...
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.
