Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Though the show was not yet the ratings powerhouse it became in Season 3, Raymond's best elements can be seen crystallizing during the 1997-98 season. By the time the last of this group's 25 episodes plays, we’ve seen a diamond in the rough become the glittering jewel in the CBS network's crown. Much of the credit has to go to top-billed Ray Romano, who not only co-wrote many of the individual installments but also encouraged the development of the secondary characters. Ray's parents, Marie (Doris Roberts) and Frank (Peter Boyle), really come into their own this year, and his older brother, Robert (Brad Garrett), figures more prominently as well. Season 2 gets off to a good start with "Ray's on TV," which finds the sportswriter bungling his first television appearance after being deluged with "helpful" tips from his family. "Brother" is a tour de force for Romano and Garrett, who reveal that a night on the town isn't quite the shining example of male bonding the brothers hoped for. Ray sees his wife, Debra (Patricia Heaton), in a different light in "High School," a snarky episode that finds him suffering through a class reunion. "Marie's Meatballs" gives Roberts center stage in a sidesplitting episode revolving around Ray's preference for his mother's cooking over Debra's. And the season comes to a hilarious conclusion with a two-parter, "The Wedding," which flashes back to Ray and Debra's whirlwind marriage and introduces Robert Culp and Katherine Helmond as Debra's parents. With the players perfectly in tune with one another, Season 2 leaves the impression that the show could run smoothly for years to come. But then, of course, it has.
