  • Jack's boyfriend hits on Will, while Grace hires a new assistant at the office.

    You know it's bad when the best moment of the episode involves silence, Will, bacon and a hand-held fan. Seriously, I love this show. But this episode was not funny.

    The plot is nothing special, which is a shame because it did have the potential to be funny. Nearly every joke fell flat - they seemes to be trying to hard to be both politically incorrect and funny, and then landed on irritating. The scenes with Grace, Karen and Pam are awkwardly acted (probably because they didn't find the script funny either.) The bit with Will's coat went on way too long - but had a decent payoff with the phone call. Is it just me or are the food jokes with Grace getting old? This is easily one of the worst episodes of this show ever written.

    Leslie Jordon is the only higlight. No matter what the character does it cracks me up "Gay bar fight!" Hee.
