A surprise hit when it
first aired in 1996, EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND has found its legs as
one of television's most enduring and entertaining sitcoms.
Comedian Ray Romano developed the series around his successful
standup routines where he lampooned the married life of the
everyman. The comedian stars as an altered version of himself, Ray Barone, a Long Island sportswriter who has the wife of his dreams,
Debra (Patricia Heaton). Unfortunately, their life of bliss is
constantly being interrupted by Ray's bickering parents, Frank
(Peter Boyle) and Marie (Doris Roberts), as well as his dopey
brother Robert (Brad Garrett), who all live close by.
5-volume box set includes every episode from the series' debut
season, which explores issues of family dynamics with a constant
injection of hilarity.
