Everybody Loves Raymond

Series 1 Episode 1: Pilot

Ray Barone's life seems perfect: he's a successful sportswriter living with his wife Debra and three kids, but trouble comes in paradise in the shape of his interfering mother, grumpy father and resentful brother. In this opening episode of the series, Debra wants a peaceful birthday with Ray, so he tells his parents and brother that there's no party: a lie with embarrassing consequences.
