    It's my favorite comedy since Dharma and Greg went out of syndication in our market (non-cable, I mean).

    I absolutely love that show. My favorite episode is the one where they discover a "long lost" relative, Zia Sarina. They go from a dysfunctional family to a wonderfully loving Italian-American family in about 18 minutes and back again. The last scene includes "Mio Babbino Caro" from Puccini's Gianna Schicchi as the exit music.

    My kids love the show and I do, too. It's our 9pm to 10pm tradition. A sweet way to go to bed... laughing.

    My FAVORITE show. The only one we watch on a regular basis.

    We get it at 7:00 7:30 & 11:00

    When Frank does his Frankenstein...memories of "Young Frankenstein"!!!!

    Ray speaking at the funeral.

    Ray and Robert both being afraid to be alone in their homes. Frank scares them and they decide to pay Frank back and hide in his closet, but Frank knows and pretends to be getting amorous with Marie! Hilarious!

    Debra bringing the vacuum to Marie's to try and find dirt in the carpet.

    Piano lessons...Ellen Gerby's Butt Deserves Framing!!!!
    I fell on the floor lauging!!!

    Debra accidently throws away Muhammad Ali's letter to Ray.

    On, & on, & on...................

    Anything Frank does is GREAT, and Marie, she is probably everyone's mother, especially mine.

    You KNOW we're going to name them all!

    Sorry, but I do not love Raymond. Not sure what it is about, I just always found him annoying. My apologies... Dahrma and Greg were cool, although it was weird at the end when Greg went all hippy. It ruined the balance, if you ask me. I'm more a fan of Cheers and Just Shoot Me.

    The show is funny enough, but I believe that it is due far more to the supporting cast than it is to Ray Ramano. Just an opinion of course.

    LOL Manny ROFL

    I love Raymond. Its a funny show that has a dysfunctional family that dipicts every day situations in a funny way. My favorits episode has to be (theres so many) the one where Ray wants to paint his house, and Frank has a (wholly crap) ROFL
