Another great season

"We received Season 5 on DVD just in time for Christmas, and now we get Season 6 to kick off the summer. Another terrific season with very funny episodes, as always.
There are the usual commentaries with Ray Romano, Phil Rosenthal, and some crew members. Patricia Heaton wasn't scheduled to be part of this season's commentaries, which is disappointing, but we get to hear Doris Roberts this time, and even though Romano and Rosenthal talk a lot more than she does in the commentary she's in, it's still fun to get some of her insights. I was especially excited to see that they included a commentary track for "Talk to Your Daughter," which has a storyline about daughter Ally and includes an adorable scene at the very end with Ally and the twins. It was nice to see the cast and crew talk a little bit more about the kids (not much, but they mentioned them a couple times at least). That was one thing that was missing on the first 5 DVD sets, and I'm happy that they've included it here.
Some notable episodes from this well-written and successful season include "The Angry Family," where a school essay from little Michael shows the Barone adults that their daily snits with each other are not going unnoticed; "Marie's Sculpture," where Marie makes an absolutely outrageous creation that outdoes even herself; "Cookies," where poor Ray gets more or less beat up by Ally's pushy troop leader; and "Mother's Day," which begins a string of several episodes that chronicles Debra and Marie's biggest fight yet, and shows how it impacts the entire family. Some fans may be interested to know that they initially wanted to stretch the Debra/Marie estrangement for the entire Season 7, but they decided it "wouldn't have been much of a show if they just left the men to talk to each other." I personally think they could have made it work and found a way to do it in an upbeat and humorous tone, but the way they did it was great, too. There are many laughs to be had, but plenty of sweet and tender moments as well, all balanced out in classic "Raymond" tradition.
Only 3 more seasons to go after this one--with a little luck, maybe they will all be released before Christmas (although that may be a little bit of ambitious thinking). I'm sure we will definitely get them all within the next year, though, so get excited about completing your collections! :)"
My favorite season!

"I am a huge Everybody Loves Raymond fan, so when they went off the air last year, I was really upset, and yet really glad at the same time because they were able to go out at the top of their form. I am thrilled with the consistent releases of these sets, and the sixth season is, in my opinion, the one in which they reached their pinnacle. The quality was high the whole series, but season six is full of a lot of favorite episodes that I think are top-notch, including but certainly not limited to, "Lucky Suit," "The Angry Family," "Talk to Your Daughter," the three episodes at the end with the Marie-Debra feud, and MANY more! I recommend every single season of Everybody Loves Raymond, but if you are trying to choose only one, this is it. I can't wait to get my copy of this release!"
May Be Their Best Season?

"Four episodes alone of this season were worth the price of the DVD. The Angry Family was debatedly the funniest episode ever? All of the adult characters were at their VISCERAL BEST. Craven Ray, overbearing Marie, cranky Frank, envious Robert, and quick tempered Debra were in fine form. The looks they gave each other were almost "operatic." Poor father Dubley's expression in having to deal with all the Barones at once in his office was worthy of a Shark bite. The last moment when Ray and Debra find out that the angry family story their son wrote was really about a cartoon would make a corpse laugh. In episode 7-"Jealous Robert," the manipulations of Marie and Debra backfire and put the always timid Ray in the middle of another soap opera. Episode 10-"Raybert," saw Robert living out his fantasy with a woman who has mistaken him for Ray. The two brothers get caught up in being Raybert and hilarity ensues. Episode 11-"Kicker," shows the wickedly wacky persona of Frank. To me it is a crime that Peter Boyle never won an emmy for his performances. He was exceptional in this one as the football hijacker who wants to make a buck on what should have been the football players moment in the sun. The scene where four of them are listening to Frank rant on the radio was classic ELR at its very best."
THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE SERIES
G.V. | Mexico City, Mexico | 04/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is the last season of ELR which I can safely say I found outstanding. It includes my favorite episode (The Lucky Pants) in which Robert interviews for an FBI job but Marie's intervention ruins his chances. It may or it may not be the best episode in the series but I know for a fact I didn't laugh out louder in any of the rest. I was glad the very last episode of ELR was so good but, generally speaking, season 7-9 din't do it for me, I found Robert's in-laws to be a lot more irritating than funny, specially Chris Eliott who I simply can't stand. By purchasing only seasons 1-6 I will be able to remmember ELR at its very best so this is where I get off."
