  • Overstayed its welcome

    7.0
    Will & Grace has, unfortunately, done what many series before it has done. It has overstayed its welcome. More often than not, shows run out of steam after four or five years and Will & Grace is no exception. This has never been appointment television for me, but when I was home I would watch it and enjoy it when I saw it. But then came that horrible storyline of Will & Grace trying to have a baby together and then fighting constantly about it. This story completely ruined the characters for me. I no longer believe that they are even friends. The whole thing just rings false anymore. As funny as Jack & Karen are, after all these years they still seem to have no depth to themselves and anymore just come off as sad, pitiful creatures. At least we can still count on Shelley Morrison for a laugh whenever they decide to use her.
  • Great TV

    8.9
    Although not as good as it once was, Will and Grace is still a great TV show. This is one TV show I watch every day on syndiaction and usually love all of the episodes. The new episodes hale in comparison to the old but they still have their moments. In my opinion it jumped the shark once Grace got married and kept going downhill ever since. At least we have re-runs.
  • Without a doubt one of the worst comedy shows ever made, of all time, ever, in history. BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD

    0.1
    Its just horrendous; painful to watch, it annoys me so much I actually make an effort to be away from the TV when it is on - even if im on the other channel!

    I will say one thing about this show............ erm................ I'll think of something in a minute........... actually I have honestly sat here for a couple of minutes trying to think of ONE thing I like, or even just something thats not terrible, but I cant. Its awful. Full Stop.
  • one of the funniest shows in a long time, must watch

    7.5
    will and grace is one of the funniest shows i've seen in a long time without being overly funny, once i started watching i couldnt stop, i dont care what bad reviews it gets from other people this show is a must watch and who cares what other people think anyone, lol j/k, some people pass it off as a show for gays and bis but i think that just shows their homophobia (did i spell that right?), if you enjoy shows like everbody loves raymond i sugest you give this show i try, i hope you will enjoy it
  • Will & Grace is a hilarious series about two best friends. The twist is that Will is gay. Grace is a straight interior designer. More than friends, but less than lovers, the two share a special bond and their personalities easily balance one another's. It

  • Woman and Gay man live in an apartment together.

    9.5
    This is the show that I watch when I need a laugh. It may be only a 30 minute show (20-25 minutes with commercials) but it is absolutely packed with laughter. It's a great way to make yourself feel better when you are down in the dumps. If for any reason I can't watch it that night, I make sure to record it. I also watch it on the week days when it comes on for an hour from 7 to 8. They may be re runs but they are just as great as the first time.!! Can't wait to see more.
  • This show is absolutely genius.

    10
    This show is absolutely genius. The writing is smart and the jokes are hilarious. This show helped gay people become accepted while still making you laugh. The 4 main actors (Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally, & Sean Hayes) have all won emmys for their performances which proves that this is one of the best casts ever to be on television. I could never go a day without watching this show, it will go down as a classic.
  • Between the alcoholic, pill-addicted Karen and the flamboyantly gay Jack, Will and Grace have a hard time keeping sane. The ultimate comedy.

    10
    This is the ultimate comedy. Between the alcoholic, pill-addicted Karen, and the flamboyantly gay Jack, Will and Grace have a hard time staying sane. But an absolute favourite. We follow these four through their difficulty in relationships and everyday life. But everyone can realate to their special bond that keeps them togther.
  • Quick-minded humor and bang into door laughs. Well written

    9.6
    To concur with others, no way do you have to be gay to enjoy this show. In fact, pretty much everyone with a sense of humor should enjoy this show [unless you're completely homophobic].

    Will & Grace covers every kind of humor anybody could want. Some of the most witty remarks come from the mouths of the actors, while falling over can still be hilarious.

    I recently watched a series 5 marathon on FOX, and couldn't get enough. Everybody should at least have an unbiased go at this show. That scene with Will and Grace and there meeting! At The Wedding! ZOMG!

  • Will, Grace, Jack, Karen are my "tv friends" that's a great show.

    10
    Will and Grace is a great show, that is more that stupid jokes it also has to deal with everyday problems if you watch it like when it coems on than you would also understand that Will and Grace comfort each other and Jack and Karen just well there's no way to describe them. great show !!!!!!!!
  • Genius!

    10
    I really don't know what I would do if this show never existed. This show has wonderful writers who continue to create amazing, original scripts with hilarious jokes and great plots, and it has four very talented actors who play their characters so perfectly, you could never imagine someone else playing the characters. Everything about this show is fabulous. When everything is said and done with the final season, this genius sitcom will be considered a classic, and will continue to make people laugh for years to come.
  • Very Funny!!!

    9.0
    Two words: "Just Jack". Jack is my favorite character the way he really really exaggerates in things. And how ironic it is that Grace's perfect match is her bestfriend Will. But one thing Will is gay. Crazy huh? Every episode is full of something funny. And who can't forget Karen. Without Karen, the show would not have such disses. Like when Karen always makes fun of Grace "Hunny, what did I say about that top?"
  • A show about a gay guy and his best friend, another gay friend, and a bisexual alcoholic. The show takes place in manhattan.

    5.0
    Funny. VERY FUNNY. Although the outfits they chose to have the characters wear are VERY BAD. Not to sound like a hippy, but what a waste of animal! Almost every piece of clothing has a pice of fur from some sort of animal attached to it. It is a funny show though, but the wardrobe could definitely improve.
  • The exploits of Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen as they mingle around NYC. Yeah, it's not that exciting.

    1.0
    Once upon a time, a long time ago, there was a groundbreaking show on NBC that brought gay characters to upfront in television and showed homosexuals as people who were a part of society in every valuable way that anyone else was. When you watch "Will & Grace" nowadays it's very hard to realize that this used to be the show I was describing above.

    For it's first three seasons "Will & Grace" in a somewhat clever and comedic way would address the issues of being gay in the city with social conformities and heterosexism. It was a show that really meant something. When it won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2000 it was well deserved.

    However, Will became a pathetic loser since he wasn't dating anyone and Jack just became a bigger and bigger stereotype until the only thing that defined him was the fact that he was gay. It was brilliant when the writers had Jack's father pass away when he was about to meet him and then have Jack assume the role of a father to Elliot, his son. The characters, with an occasional exception to Grace, had no depth whatsoever and the show just turned into a bunch of empty jokes usually revolving around the word gay or something having to do with men's bodies.

    What also disturbs me about the direction the show has gone in is the fact that for people in the "red" states, where most gay people are afraid to come out of the closet, this is their only perception of gay people that they see. They continue to see gay people in the same eyes, as people they despise and would never want to get to know personally but someone who they love to laugh at. This show encourages homophobia by showing gay people as people who don't stand up for themselves and are total wusses.

    It is because of these reasons that I find the creators of this atrocity, Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, guilty of wrongful portrayal and exploitation of the gay community and hereby sentence them both to be hanged by the neck until dead and then to have the general public beat their corpses with metal baseball bats until we all get tired or run out of beer; whichever comes first.
  • A show about a gay man name Will and a Stright women name Grace who theyve known eachother since college for more then 15 years.They live together but are not in love with each other.Grace still has a crush on will DEEP down but Will is just friends with

    10
    I love this show this show is so funny. I love Eric McCormack. Hes so cute, He has a beautiful smile. I love how will and grace are so close on the show as friends. I wonder if they are that close in real life. This is my favorite show on NBC. NBC is the best tv station litterley. Considering the fact theres not a single show on there that isnt funny.
  • Will & Grace? More like Swill & Grace.

    0.5
    A wacky cast of uptight women and gay men. Nothing says funny like that. I couldn't comprehend this show any further than I could understand the sociological impact that kiwi fruit has on the Amazon on a rainy day in May.

    I've watched this show several times just to see if maybe I am missing something. I'm not. It is just a show for gay men, married women and blue haired old ladies to find cute and charming in some weird way.

    This show is like a Lifetime comedy. Oh right...there is no Lifetime comedy. Silly me. This show blows. I give it four huge hurls out of five.
  • this show is the best, personal favorite! its funny,sexy, and totally gay! this show should stay on for more than one more season! this show is funny and if you want some drama theres that too! its the best!

    10
    Will and grace is funny, spohfistacated, and gay. its great! Karen walker played by megan mullally is one of the funniest charecters alive! same with Jack Mcfarland who is played by sean hayes! the two of them alone could make the show still totally awesome! Will played by Eric Mccomrmick and Grace adler played by debra messing are also pretty funny! they all have funny things about them! karen is a alcholic drug junkie who seems to think that when jake had a coffee problem he was the only one who had it! a blind and deaf man can tell that Jack is gay, Will is a gay lawyer who cant keep a relationship, and graces boyfriends always seem to turn out gay in the end or when she gets married the husband runs away! anyways this show is awesome and i cant wait to see the season 8 live! premire of will and grace this will make television history!
  • Best american sitcom ever? yes and no......

    10
    For years now i have been watching the show and been a loyal fan and without doubt i have never laughed so much at an american sitcom.It breaks all the rules of the usuall comedies from the states and in a good way.But i have to be honest, will & grace would be nothing without Jack, Karen and Rosario. when i think of things that make me laugh in the show 99.9% of the time it has come from these 3 priceless characters. in fact i find the scenes with will & grace mediocre to say the least at times. yes they do have some good lines but its mainly when they are interacting with jack and karen.speaking of karen, she has got to be the best comedy creation in history and is only so spectacular because of megan mallully who plays her,what a fantastic actress.so mixed emotions really but long may it continue.
  • THE END IS NEAR, of liveaction comedies!

    8.9
    I’m sorry to have to be the one to tell you this but one of the last great live action comedy is dying. Not because of a humor deficiency, but of old age. It’s a growing epidemic. The population will slow to a halt.

    The shelf life of a comedy is nine years. The biggest killers are actors who need more money and being thrown out before they go stale. Friends, the Michael Jordan’s of the television, were victim of the greedy-actor syndrome. And Everybody Loves Raymond as an example of the later. But that isn’t the problem at hand.

    Comedies are dying at an alarmingly young age. Listen Up a show with a lot of promise was canceled for lack of sky-high ratings, along with many other promising comedies. Networks have no sense of the future and only care about that particular week. The greatest comedies of the last 15 years (Seinfeld, Will & Grace, Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond) were not instant hits and need time to bloom. FOX, of all the networks is least patient and gives shows around three episodes to prove their worthiness.

    Another hazard the comedies have to watch out for it the murderous networks who chase the live action comedies into a dark ally and slowly beat them to death. The dark alleys, of coarse, are Friday Night. This is when the network finds a show that they are loyal to because of great past rating which just aren’t quite getting the same ratings anymore and forces them into the ally where the deed is done. The victims of this horrendous crime are The Bernie Mac Show, Wanda at Large and soon to be deceased Malcolm in the Middle.

    So the end of live action comedies will come when That 70’s Show is canceled for losing the character the show is based on and when Two and a Half Men run out of alimony jokes.

    So when Will & Grace comes to an end shed a tear for the genre and not just the show itself.
  • Real comedy

    9.2
    It's a very funny show. i like how they look at life on the view of the gay guys and straight women together. It's funny but at the sametime it's how it is in real life between the two. Most people who doesn't like this is the guys. I think it's the ones who isn't to sure of there sexuality. Overall great fun and lots of laughter.
  • story of two gay men and two straight women who are friends.

    9.0
    Will and Grace is the story of, yes you guessed it, Will and Grace. Grace is a flat-chested and quirky girl who loves the opposite sex, and Will is the kindest gay man in the world! We also see their hilarious friends Karen, who's best friend is alcohol, and Jack, a dancer-singer-actor and super funny gay man.

    The idea of a storyling being humorous and following the lives of a group of friends is not original. BUT! Will and Grace put their own special twist on this genre of television, and threw in two gay men! It makes for quite the funny show.

    Will and Grace is a show that never gets boring. It has to compete with shows like Friends and Sex and the City, and I feel its truly underappreciated at the award shows. I've yet to meet a person who dislikes this show, probably because it can put a smile on anyones face! It definately classifies as a guilty pleasure!
  • A show so obviously wonderful, it is the only sitcom worth watching now that most legendary ones are gone. Simply put, Long Live Will & Grace.

    10
    The best show on T.V. as of today. Sitcom-wise. There is a pure, not so wholesome comedy edge to it. Definitely a comedy worth watching and puts tears in my eyes everytime I watch. This show should be the measure by which other "Best Comedy Series" nominees should follow. Will & Grace has made history.
  • It's so funny.....

    9.7
    Will and Grace is one of the funniest shows on these days. I absolutely love this show. I think that Karen and Jack are the best. I love how Karen makes fun of Graces' fashion sense. Jack is so gay that it's funny. All of the wacky things he says and does the show would be lost without him. Will is like the adult of the show. It seems that he tries to keep everyone in line, especially Jack. All of the funny lines and plot twists make this show what it is. I don't think I could go a day without it.


  • Unlike most people I think Will & Grace is getting better and better by the Episode..

    10
    This show makes me laugh every single time I watch it. Karen Walker is by far my favorite character. Her whitty remarks and comments on Grace's Hair and Clothes has me lauhging for Hours. Jack's knowledge makes me laugh. Will & Grace can be funny at times but I really think Karen and Jack are funnier.
  • While it's past it's time it's still great!

    9.4
    Okay so as i always say and many others, the show shoulda been about and called Jack&Karen Not Wll&Grace it's terribly funny. Reading some of the reaviews i read two that made no sense? okay one was waist of time i want to die and the other said simply it's a pile of crap, the people are laughing but there was no joke? That is not the point! Come on, good humour is not someone standing there spouting off knock knock jokes! good Humour is playing a role in a creative and energetic way...Now saying that i have to admit, the shows been lacking in the funny creative orignal department, while as the first 3-4 seasons were outrageously funny(ie Jack&Karen and the ATM machine [her breasts:P]) the shows originallity with humour is beginning to die off, i find myself not laughing nearly as much as at first. The personalities of each charecter as so much differnet yet they can get along amazingly well, Will&Grace's cababilities of making up and getting along, finishing each others setances, Jack&Karen's sense of humour, helping each other with there problems while having a blast spending Karen't money, and last but defenetly not least Karen&Rosario's adventures, from taking a bath with each other so that Rosario can scrub Karen's feat and talk about how to get Grace out of the house by means of a plan with lots of twists and turns, and then jsut shoving her down the stairs are to die for! See write a review that can tell people why you like or dislike a show, don't jsut say something is crap, people need to know why you think so! don't tell the world you can use cut and paste 50 times!
  • One of the funniest comedies after Friends

    9.6
    Will & Grace is a very funny very entertaining show. The mix of Grace, Will, Jack and Karen works extremly well. THe comedy just keeps on pouring out of the mouths of the very talented actors, and that actually isnt Meagans(Karen) real voice. The end of Friends opened up the a space for the brillient show of Will & Grace. The perfect mix of gay, straight, sane and crazy people makes the show well worth watching. The characters develope in a very effective and positive way. The plot lines keep getting more and more interesting and you go very deep into the lives of each individual charcater.This is a show which everyone should watch at least once.
  • A show about two best friends--Will an gay lawyer and Grace, an interior designer who's straight and they live together in New York City in an apartment. Their two other friends Jack (who's also gay) and Karen (who's straight) go on crazy and funny advent

    6.7
    I loved this show in its earlier seasons. It was hilarious and I enjoyed watching this show. However, this show is really going downhill fast. It's not as funny as it used to be. I believe this show went downhill when Grace got married to that doctor guy. When that happened, it just wasn't the same anymore. This show has lost it's touch. I don't even really watch the new espodisoes anymore. I watch the earlier espdoisoes. I think that they should just end it.
  • Will & Grace shows the lives of 4 best friends. Will Truman, Grace Adler, Karen Walker, and Jack McFarland are showcased in this series as quirky and completely lovable characters who are obviously very different but completely involved within each other

    9.2
    Will & Grace is a great show. It has an unbelievably talented cast and the writing on this show is simply to die for. The wonderful quick wit that is displayed for all of these characters is very well done by the cast of regulars. Although through the years the quality of show is steady declining it is still one of my favorites and always will be.
  • Best writing on TV.

    9.6
    This is basically the best writing on television today and it is DEFINATLY underappreciated. I am sure someone else agrees. I have to admit, the humor has been a little less funny lately, but I think that this next season will be great. If the Coen Brothers did a TV show, this would be it.
  • As much as I hate to say it, Will & Grace is going, going, going, almost gone. . .

    6.2
    I started getting interested in W&G after purchasing the first 3 seasons on DVD. The first 3 seasons were hysterical. They had me on the floor laughing. However, seeing reruns on the WB network of seasons 4 and on, you are able to see the characters are just giving lines, and doing things just to shock people. The characters are no longer as fresh and original as they once were.
