Season 5 of Everybody Loves Raymond opens with a two-parter that finds the Barone family on vacation in Italy.  It has become one of my favorite episodes.

It was almost certainly sponsored by the Italian Tourism Board.  There are very few jokes and absolutely no plot.  The family just wanders around admiring beautiful sights, eating delicious food, and enjoying each other’s company.  Ray buys everyone flowers, Robert discovers gelato.

It was a really nice change of pace from the traditional sit-com style.  It’s one to keep an eye out for.
