Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Cree McCree
Avoiding the preachiness that plagued Ellen's landmark lesbian season, Will & Grace was an out-of-the-closet comedy right from the start in 1998. Taking a cue from My Best Friend's Wedding­­ -- wherein Rupert Everett delighted audiences as the gay bosom buddy who had all the answers for Julia Roberts -- Will & Grace dove into the narrow but clearly defined divide between the hetero and homo worlds. Evident from the start is Eric McCormack's casual charm as Will, a gay New York lawyer who is made for his best friend, Grace (Debra Messing), in every way but one. With her wild mane, quick tongue, and knack for physical comedy, Messing was born to play Grace, a successful interior designer whose personal life is, well, a mess. A ratings hit from the get-go, the show also had its detractors. Some thought the producers played it too safe in this first season, and the charge has some merit. Dumped by their respective lovers, Will and Grace move in together but remain in relationship limbo for all 22 episodes, with no new boyfriend for either one (though Grace dallies with Will's estranged brother and both have eyes for a sexy new tenant). But even without the romantic entanglements introduced in later seasons, Will & Grace shines. This is due in no small part to the stars' sidekicks: the ultra-swishy Jack (Sean Hayes) and the ultra-snippy Karen (Megan Mullaly). There's also a marvelous guest-star turn by Debbie Reynolds as "The Unsinkable Mommy Adler," a former showgirl who lives to upstage her daughter Grace.
