List of episodes

"Wallpaper" is the third episode of the fifth season of the American sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond (1996–2005).


According to Screen Rant, "Wallpaper" is an iconic episode of the series for Marie's car crash,[1] and "a premise involving a car smashing through the wall of our lead characters almost writes itself in terms of funny banter."[2] In a review of season five, DVDTalk highlighted "Wallpaper" as one of the season's many "fun episodes."[3] For acting in "Wallpaper" and "Frank Paints the House," Boyle was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.[4] "Wallpaper" was number four in a March 2005 online viewers poll ran by CBS of top Raymond episodes.[5] As of October 2019, the 8.5-rated "Wallpaper," "Raybert," and "The Bird" were close to being the tenth highest-rated Everybody Loves Raymond episode on IMDb, but the first part of "Italy" was beaten for having more votes.[6] However, by December 2019, it was highest-rated episode to be primarily about Frank.[2]
