Good ep. I think I liked the family portrait scene better in the manga, simply because there was more of a shock, turning the page to find this image as opposed to the way it was done in the anime. Just a little nitpick, I guess.
I think the raw emotion was lacking from the art in the anime's version too. In the manga his face was a little more bland looking as opposed to heart-wrenchingly sad.

-Hoho scene! Yet, for some reason this scene was better in the manga. But, Hoho scene was moving nontheless. -Baby Ed! Baby Al! D'awwwww... -The Elric house has an odd shape. -NOT THE EYES! ANYTHING BUT THE EYES! But, hell, those eyes are freaking scary. -And yet no new music. *sighs* -Raven needs to stop petting Olivier's hands and he needs to get out of her face. -Olivier's expressions, I love them. -Raven's eyecatch... Has he been taking lessons from Envy? -How many times has Al been mistakened for Ed? -And yes! Raven gets what he deserves! And hey, it was more violent than it was in the manga! And it was done well! *applauds* -Winry needs to get away from Kimbley. Like nows.

A lot of good in this one.
I think it was a good choice to linger more on the Hohenheim scene like they did. It fleshes out the character more, and you could take time to appreciate him and his relationship to his family.
Loved Raven acting like a total sleazebag, and Olivier just -barely- putting up with it... for a while.
This episode is one of the few so far that was actually -more- violent than the manga. The "shadow" attack scene was appropriately disturbing, and holy crap, the death of Raven was perfect! It really was chilling seeing his face sink into the cement. Though I missed about "foundations" and then Raven being part of the foundations of Briggs- literally.
And then there's Kimblee, waving around Winry just to show how much of an SOB he is...
