3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best series ever..., 21 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Will and Grace: Complete Series 3 [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
I'm still an avid watcher of Will and Grace even though it's now heading into the 7th series on TV. But it has to be said that by now it's started to decline in quality, and the beginning of that decline is evident here in series 3.
Series 1 and 2 of Will and Grace were comic masterpieces, surpassing most other sitcoms and providing loads of laugh out loud moments. Series 3 has less of such moments, and at some points seems to drag, becoming monotonous and seemingly without many fresh ideas, so some episodes feel a bit samey.
However it's still a good show and this series does have the major bonus of a two part flashback episode which shows Will, Grace and Jack in the 80s, when Will and Grace were dating, Will had yet to realise/admit that he was gay, and Jack was already...Jack. It's essential viewing as it gives necessary background to the characters and explains Will and Grace's relationship in a way that seems to make everything clearer. It also shows how the bond between Jack and Will first grew which is very touching. This double episode is also the comedy highlight of the series with some excellent hairdos and one-liners! I loved it when Will insists he's straight and Jack snaps 'Your well-worn copy of the Dream Girls show tunes begs to differ!'.
As far as special features go, it's got pretty much the same dismal ones as series 2 - a few compilations of clips from the series, under different headings. I think the boxset would really benefit from some interviews, commentaries or especially bloopers.
So in summary, if you're already a Will and Grace fan then get this series as it still provides a good way to lose yourself for a half hour (or a few hours if you fancy watching them all at once - it's one of those shows that's easy to just keep watching!). But if you're new to the show then get series 1 and 2 first.
