Product Description

22 episodes on 4 DVDs. 1998-99/color/NR/fullscreen.

Will & Grace debuted with a controversial splash because one of its two lead characters is gay--but smart writing and topnotch performances, not politics, have made the show a hit. Two neurotic and sharp-tongued urbanites--gay lawyer Will (Eric McCormack) and straight interior designer Grace (Debra Messing)--delight in their volatile but enduring friendship as they share a sumptuous New York apartment. Sweeping into the mix are Will's unapologetically queeny friend Jack (Sean Hayes) and Grace's wildly eccentric assistant Karen (Megan Mullally). Much like Seinfeld, the humor on Will & Grace springs from self-obsession, petty jealousy, and compulsive interfering in each other's lives--basically, the building blocks of human nature. The show's writers apparently feel compelled to keep the lead characters warm and likeable in the usual sitcom mode (which hardly seems necessary, as McCormack and Messing are naturally engaging). As a result, it's Jack and Karen who get free reign to be truly obnoxious and ridiculous--which, of course, makes them incredibly funny and charismatic. Hayes and Mullally rise to the occasion, ripping through absurd situations and arias of narcissistic wit with dazzling panache.

Will & Grace's plots routinely center around scenarios that could feature a married couple or two same-sex roommates: Will and Grace bicker over buying a dog, find their relationship tested by apartment renovations, or discover they're both pursuing the same guy--standard sitcom material that the gay factor gives a clever spin. Though their relationship gets in the way of their sex lives, the two take so much pleasure in each other's company that they can't help but stick together--a surprisingly chaste theme for such a culturally groundbreaking show, but one that Will & Grace's addicted audience undoubtedly appreciates. --Bret Fetzer

This is a little bit review and lot more information. I waited at the video store and ran in when it opened at 10:00am and grabbed my copy of this DVD. I've been a fan for years, so I couldn't believe they FINALLY got around to releasing Season One!!
Here's the scoop on the DVDs:
First of all, the DVD packaging is VERY WELL done. It's a multiple fold-out, single piece case and has each character depicted on one of the four discs. The still photos on the inside let us remember some of the funnier scenes. Each disc has the episode name, air date and a brief description of the episode. NBC, Komut Entertainment and 3 Sisters should be VERY proud of the presentation.

In 1998, a new comedy called "Will & Grace" made its official debut on US comedy channel NBC. The series was widely talked about. I live in the UK, and Will & Grace has only been on our television screens for little over two years, but - as in America - the show has made a huge impact and formed huge fanclubs amongst both the gay and straight communities. Seasons 1 and 2 have been available in the UK for around a year, so I think it's about time the show is released on DVD in America!

Will and Grace are best friends who are both very close. Everything about their friendship is perfect for them to be a romantic couple, except for one problem - while Grace is straight, Will is gay. Will Truman (Eric McCormack) is a supercool lawyer who loves Grace as a friend, but nothing more. He is a rather strange character, but seems very grounded and comfortable with his sexuality. Grace Adler (Debra Messing) is a sassy, smart and successful interior designer. She is very dedicated and disciplined when it comes to her professional life, but her personal life isn't nearly so together, and Will is her stabilising force. She's a little neurotic, and she knows Will is the only person who understands her and can help her put things into perspective. Besides this, Grace is also a lot of fun, and her humour helps balance Will's more serious personality.

Will and Grace also have to cope with their two long time friends, Jack and Karen. Jack McFarland (Sean Hayes) is a jobless and very hyper camp gay guy. He is highly neurotic, extremely outspoken, a little bitter, maybe even borderline obsessive-compulsive. However, underneath all that, he is a caring soul and a good friend to Will. Karen Walker (Megan Mullally) plays Grace's socialite assistant.

Grace, what's with the outfit, you look like a crazed housewife from one of the square states!....I can't believe how great this show is--and to have it on DVD!! I got it as a gift from would wait and buy it on amazon, it's much cheaper!! Not only do you get all of the first season episodes--but the "themed featurettes" special feature is to die for. It's a series of 8 montages of clips from the first season grouped into different categories. It's almost as much fun watching these as it is watching each of the epidodes.
It's also GREAT to have W&G and not have to wait for commercials! The shows are the perfect length for when you are having a bite to eat but don't want to get hooked on whatever happens to be on cable. But beware! The first season is super addictive!
Things to look forward to: the legendary first meeting of Jack and Karen (where they touch tummies for the first time "I had no idea you'd be so--"kitten-with-a-whip" "Shoes? Chanel. Fabulous! I know!"); Rosario's first epidsode; the unveiling of "Just Jack"; Molly Shannon's first turn as the crazy luna-chick "Val" ("You funny lady--and you gay fella!"); the fantastic episode where the group goes camping ("I don't know Will, at night I like to "spramp" a li'l gardenia on for Stan..."); Debbie Reynolds' debut; the list goes on and on.
Even though this show is in syndication, it's a must have on DVD. You can pick and choose when and how you want to laugh your butt off!!

Welcome to the wacky and wonderful world of Will & Grace!

Will (Erick McCormack), a gay Manhattan lawyer, and his best straight friend Grace (Debra Messing), an interior designer, have been friends forever and share an apartment in New York City. Their love for each other is something that can be regarded as that special unbreakable bond that can - sometimes - be described as a bond stronger than a marriage.

Will's best friend - for fifteen years and counting - Jack McFarland (Sean Hayes) is an outrageously gay individual who has been a struggling actor since, well, forever! Jack is totally dependant on Will for financial and emotional stability.

Grace's wacky, pill-popping, high society assistant Karen Walker only works because it makes her seem "normal". She (Karen) describes Karen's outrageous remarks towards Grace as "work".

Overall, this is the birth of a television classic and one of the most revolutionary sitcoms ever! `Will & Grace' season one is a real gem. You can never experience a great a first season as this! Despite the fact that many people only caught on in season two and three, season one boasts some of the sharpest writing that ever embraced TV! The cast magnificently portrays their characters to the tea! In season one `Will & Grace' was one of the most critically acclaimed shows of the 1990's and the show was nominated for a lot of awards in season one and has won quite a few this season most notably the `People's Choice Award' for favourite new comedy series. Still going strong in the US and around the world. `Will & Grace' is one of those sitcoms that continue to garner praise from both the television industry (peers) as well as awards from around the world.
