"Talk about funny. This series deals with every day issues and puts a funny spin on them. Ray's style of comedy is easy to watch and I find myself in fits of laughter in every episode. A Must see.........."
I love this show

"This show is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen (next to Friends and Will and Grace). It is about Ray, a newspaper columnist, living with his family, and his intrusive parents live across the street. Deborah is Ray's wife. She constantly needs to balance her own three kids and a husband. It is much harder for her when Marie keeps sub-consciously insulting Deborah's cleaning, cooking, and parenting. If you watch the show, you know what to expect when she reacts to things. Marie is Ray and Robert's overbearing mother. Whenever she gets in people's way, her excuse is "I do it for love". Frank is the most blunt, couch-potatolike, and one of the most funniest characters I have ever watched. He keeps calling Marie a nag and the most contact he has with her is when Marie is told by Frank "Make me: eggs, a sandwich, bacon, steak, and other foods. Marie doesn't mind at all. Frank and Marie are what you call a "dysfunctional loving family". The one left out is Robert. He's Ray's brother. He works as a police officer in the NYPD. Everytime he comes home with good news, Ray trumps that and gets all of the attention. These two are usually seen competeing for their parents attention. Whenever Deborah wants Ray and/or Robert that their parents (Frank and Marie) are doing something wrong, the two sons always come up with a reason to not tell them that they are doing something wrong.(For example: Marie comes over to Ray's house everyday, Marie continues to control the family without knowing it."
