With all this going on, one would think that series star Ray Romano had taken a back seat to his supporting cast -- but one would be wrong. During season five, Ray Barone has many a misadventure of his own, beginning with the emotional fallout attending his decision to finally tell his parents that they are far too much a part of his and Debra's lives. Later on, Ray accidentally commits "petslaughter" on his daughter Ally's Sawyer Sweeten beloved hamster; receives a serious ego drubbing when his book on sports is rejected by the publisher; goes into "hamana-hamana-hamana" mode upon meeting a girl he'd dated 25 years earlier an evening that he messed up with his untoward advances!; and tries to mediate a battle between his parents and his in-laws Robert Culp, Katherine Helmond during Thanksgiving dinner. The season closer is likewise devoted to Raymond, as he recalls the day that wife Debra gave birth to daughter Ally. For the second year in a row, Patricia Heaton won an Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the end of Everybody Loves Raymond's fifth season. Likewise honored was Doris Roberts, for Outstanding Supporting Actress. The series itself continued to be the shining jewel of CBS' Monday-night schedule, moving up again in the overall TV ratings.

How can you go wrong with any box sets of Everybody Loves Raymond! The show got better and funnier with each season. An enjoyment any time and laughter is much needed with these tough economic times.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

"Everybody Loves Raymond" ranks high among television's best sitcoms and, in my opinion, is the best family-situation comedy so far. The Barones are wonderfully imperfect and dysfunctional, but no more so than anyone else's real-life clan. Who doesn't have squabbles with in-laws or kids who won't behave, etc.? Yet beneath all the flared tempers, conniving and confusion, you can tell the characters need and love each other.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
