  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
The Complete Fifth Season of Everybody Loves Raymond brings on the laughs as mishaps include an Italian vacation; a zoo trip with Robert; Frank painting Ray and Debra

DVD Picture:
For everybody who loves Raymond, this season on DVD should have everybody loving it. The 1.78:1 picture looks great, with richly saturated colors, natural fleshtones, and deep blacks. At times, hues can appear a bit ruddy, but otherwise color balance is adequate. The picture can have a slightly soft appearance, but details are generally satisfying overall. (Suzanne Hodges)
