I first came across this gem of a sit-com on cable channel ‘Living’ and did not think very much of it. I laughed a little, then some more, by the time the episode had finished I was hooked.
For those of you unfamiliar with Will & Grace, it revolves around the lives of Will (McCormack) and Grace (Messing) who have been best friends since college days. No surprises there then. Add to this that Will is a gay lawyer and living with Grace a straight interior designer and the comedy potential does not ring out. In fact it is the supporting cast that get the biggest laughs. Jack (Will’s highly strung and very high maintenance gay friend) and Karen (who is supposed to work for Grace, but just criticises her taste in clothes) are comedy masterpieces in themselves. The fact that all this is established in the first ten minutes of the first episode tells you how quick fire this is. Given at the time that Friends and Frazier were going through lax periods this gave a shot in the arm to US sit-com (although it has recently undergone a dose of mogadon thanks to the truly alarming ‘According to Jim’).
With the pilot out of the way and the characters established the rest of the DVD edition is an unalloyed delight. The comedy is brisk and sharp, Karen (Megan Mullally) particularly is a brilliant characterisation of a gold digger who lands a rich husband (whom we never see) and spends most of her time trying to get away from his advances and spending his hard earned money. Her relationship with Jack (Sean Hayes) is particularly delicious. His main job is avoiding work with various artistic schemes (like his one man stage show 'Just Jack')and getting Will to pay for his lifestyle.

I was thrilled to watch this series as I love comedies series but I was very disappointed to find this DVD does not included subtitles as I am hard of hearing myself - so I hope this DVD will involve the subtitles soon in the future. A real disappointment.

Back in 2004 when Friends finished there was a gap in my Friday night TV watching (back in the days when I was skint and couldn't afford to go out on a Friday and Saturday night) and this was soon filled with a programme I'd never seen before. This programme was 'Will & Grace'. After watching a few episodes we were instantly hooked and decided to try out the DVDs. We've started watching them again now from the beginning and they are still as funny and entertaining as they was when we first watched them 4 years ago.

The show is about a gay lawyer (Will) who has recently broken up with his long-time boyfriend, and his best friend (Grace) who is a designer and in a bad relationship which results in her leaving her fiancé at the altar. Grace then moves in with Will and so sets the foundations of show. As well as the two main characters there is Will's friend Jack, who is also gay and constantly in-and-out of various jobs whilst he is trying for his dream as a stage actor. Then there is Grace's "assistant", the rich alcoholic Karen.

The show has genuinely funny gags and sketches that has me in stiches in every episode. The dialogue is fast flowing and extremely quick off the mark with some really clever come-backs and one-liners. The characters are also all very likeable and each have certain characteristics that are so unique to this sitcom that it actually makes it even funnier than the likes of Friends and so many others like it. Although it's not as good as Frasier (probably my favourite US sitcom), this is a highly enjoyable and very re-watchable show that is a must-watch for anyone looking for a good laugh and a great series to get into - especially now as you can get it for under a tenner!

"Pilot"
Eric's poker night is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Grace, who has once again broken up with her boyfriend. She plans to spend the night to the displeasure of Eric's friend Jack, who was planning to move in temporarily. When Will talks Grace into finally leaving her boyfriend for good, she marches off to confront him, but returns to announce that she has accepted his marriage proposal.
"New Lease on Life"
Self-centred Jack is driving Will crazy, and apartment hunting is doing the same for Grace; but when she asks why she can't simply move in with Will, he convinces her that she needs to take care of herself for a change. Much to Will's surprise, she does just that, finding a terrific but affordable apartment in Brooklyn which is much too far away for Will's best friend to live. He asks Jack to move out and Grace to move in, but she insists that he was right and she needs to lead her own life for now.
