Everybody Loves 85 Minutes Away!

I have only recently discovered "Everybody Loves Raymond" on Paramount Comedy Channel.

Why have I never watched this before?
There was a comedy-gap in my life because I knew all the episodes of Seinfeld off by heart.

I can only watch Frasier a few episodes at a time before I cringe too much.

I can only watch Curb Your Enthusiasm one epsiode at a time before it feels like I'm sucking on a lemon.

But, oh, my comedy-gap is once again full!
For those of you who are Raymond virgins, Raymond's over-posessive mother, Marie, and bigoted father Frank live directly opposite their house.
So Raymond's wife, Deb, has to endure her mother-in-law's veiled comments about her cooking, how she brings up her kids, the state of the house....
And then one day Marie and Frank decide to move to a condo 85 minutes away.
This is the scene just after they have told Deb, Raymond and his brother that they will be moving 85 minutes away....


Would your husband be like Robert and place you gently on top of the freezer?
Or would he be like Raymond?
Everybody, Including Me, Loves Raymond!

I used to watch raymond too, I also use to love 2 and a half men with Charlie Sheen and the bloke who played duck man in Pretty in Pink...
I still need to get season 8,9,10,and 11 of Fraiser as we no longer get Paramount as we never bothered to sign up for Sky in our new house.

I love the part where he throws Deb into the fridge I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants! Oh how I love that show!

Lola....L..O..L..A....lo--oh--luh! said...

Try "Scrubs" and "The Office". They are the BEST!!!

Love Raymond and also Family Guy and American Dad.

Check out The office, both UK and USA version. I dont think British comedy copied on American tv works, but this is the exception. Steve Carrell (?) is fantastic!! oh and while you are there Extras, another Riki Jervais work of brilliance. and I'll fly the flag for Good old Kiwi tv 'Flight of the Concords'. its good to laugh :)
