I love the TV show Everybody Loves Raymond, and it’s even funnier the second or third time around, but I think there was one I hadn’t seen and I’m glad I caught it tonight. It’s up there with the Mary Tyler Moore show with Chuckles the Clown’s funeral.
What’s it about? Marie lies about her sex life, claiming they do it once a year. The truth from Frank: a couple times a week. But the characters in this show and the writing just makes it. The simple idea of Marie snooping around Debra’s house while she’s asleep on the couch, finding something she desperately wants to ask about, and going out the door and ringing the doorbell.
