I really should have done this one last year. With all the talk about the cool stuff on Star Trek from the effects to ship designs, there is one area I never really addressed. And that is those awesome uniforms that everyone wore. From classic TOS through the new movies, the uniforms were always awesome and were as much a part of the show as any other element. Would it be Spock without that sky blue shirt? It just wouldn’t be the same. It’s no surprise so many people have their own copies of them. So I thought it would be fun to go over the various uniforms and pick my favorite. And as I no nothing about fashion, don’t expect specific details we are going purely on superficial appeal.
Season 9, Episode 9
A Date for Peter
Plot Summary-Debra tries to arrange a date for Peter, but Ray is enraged when Peggy is included
Nitpick of the episode-Anyone remember “Sleepover at Peggy’s”? Don’t feel bad if you don’t clearly Ray forgot it. More on this below. It’s amazing how they made Peter go from someone we hated to someone we fully sympathize with here.
Best Line-“what if they start dating? We already have enough horrible people in this family”…Ray
Episode Fun Fact –Obvious this episode is one last chance to see some recurring characters. We get Peggy, Stefania, and Peter (who actually does have one more appearance)\
Deleted Scenes-Ray giving Peter advice
Syndication Edit-teaser, we find out who the women in the back who never speak are during the party
Best Character-Debra, for once I’m on her side
Worst Character-Ray, ughhhhhhhhhhhh
Final Thoughts-This was the final episode on my “Top 5 Worst Everybody Loves Raymond Episodes” list, and it still sucks. I’ve talked a lot about the creators tended to add conflict when they didn’t need to. Is that why Ray is a jackass here? His reasoning is just lame, he accuses Debra of trying to set up Peter and Peggy so that Debra will have another solider in her war with his mother. Um, how? Even if they did marry, which neither are thinking of by the way, that’s Robert’s family and has nothing to do with Marie. And of course he has to bring up the cookie incident, and even Peggy can’t believe he hasn’t let that go yet! I admit I have no idea what the episode could have been filled with without this, but Ray is just plain ridiculous here. At least he apologizes in the end. Roberts panicking when Stefania appears is lame too but this obviously just one chance to see her again. By the way when Marie and frank storm over the creators didn’t even try to give a good reason, guess there isn’t any point by now.
Grade-C-,still annoying after all these years
