Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Will & Grace strode into its third season with the kind of cultural cache TV executives would kill for. These 22 episodes are littered with hip celebrity guest stars, from Ellen DeGeneres to Sandra Bernhard to Cher, and the performances of the core quartet--Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Karen Mullally, and Sean Hayes--became more comically exaggerated as they risked pushing their characters (already riddled with neuroses and snippiness) into the realm of caricatures. But due to clever writing and confident, full-throttle performances, it doesn't matter. Even when Jack and Karen's high-handed behavior go beyond anything recognizably human, audiences love them all the more; no matter how high-strung Will and Grace become, their well-honed rapport keeps them engaging and lovable.

Wisely, the writers swiftly returned the pair to roommate status and got Grace out of her ongoing relationship with Will's former boss (Gregory Hines), bringing the show's focus back on how the pair sublimate their love lives with the cozy intimacy of friendship--one particularly strong episode flashes back to how they first met in college, replete with godawful 80s fashion. But, as ever, it's Jack and Karen who up the comic ante; Mullally and Hayes are shamelessly self-absorbed and shallow, exploiting and abusing everyone around them. Jack forces Will to play Cyrano, feeding him pick-up lines over his salesperson headset; Karen, worried that some experimental plastic surgery might turn out badly, manipulates another socialite into getting it first. Not all plotlines fly--Grace gets into a relationship with an obnoxious neighbor (Woody Harrelson) that never becomes more than stunt-casting--but the racy wit flies fast and furious, the slapstick is topnotch, and Karen's hairdo towers magnificently. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, disastrous DVD presentation September 7, 2004
Format:DVD
NBC shows have been among the best in terms of packaging, menu design and navigation. But they sure did drop the ball on Season Three of Will & Grace.

Seasons One & Two had very attractive, clean menus that matched the outer boxes. While Season Three's outer box follows suit with the first two, the menus are a complete disaster. They are overly animated and completely tasteless. Plus the episode selection now spans two pages -- an unecessary annoyance for choosing among only 6 episodes per disc.

Season Three is a great season of this top-notch show, and is certainly a must-have for any TV-on-DVD collector. It's just too bad we'll have to be offended by these horrible menus each time we wish to watch an episode. Here's hoping NBC gets their senses back for the remaining seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 3 = 3 x the Laughs!!! July 5, 2004
Format:DVD
Known to push the button on prime time with its liberal subject matter, Will & Grace has found a loyal fan base as part of NBC's Thursday Must-See-TV line-up for six years. Beginning in the autumn of 2000, this season is full of laughs and such guest stars as Woody Harrelson, Gregory Hines, Patrick Dempsey, Ellen DeGeneres, Cher, Sandra Bernhard, and Molly Shannon. This season also introduces the lovable couple Joe & Larry (played by Jerry Lavine and Tim Bagley, respectively).

The DVD release of Will & Grace - Season 3 contains all of the season's episodes:

New Will City
Fear and Clothing
Husbands and Trophy Wives
Girl Trouble
Grace 0, Jack 2000
Love Plus One
Gypsies, Tramps and Weed
Lows in the Mid-Eighties
Three's a Crowd, Six is a Freak Show
Coffee & Commitment
Swimming Pools... Movie Stars
Crazy in Love
Brothers, A Love Story
My Uncle the Car
Cheaters
Mad Dogs and Average Men
Poker? I Don't Even Like Her
An Old-Fashioned Piano Party
The Young and the Tactless
Alice Doesn't Lisp Here Anymore
Last of the Really Odd Lovers
Sons & Lovers

Thankfully the season 3 DVD set doesn't contain all of the flaws that the season 2 set has. Aside from a lack of special features, the real bummer about this set is the version of the episode "Cheaters" that is included. "Cheaters" initially aired as a "super-size" episode, then extra footage was added for syndication, making it 2 separate 30-minute episodes. The version included in this set is the original, without the added footage. This seems particularly odd since the season 2 finale "Ben? Her?

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome season--substandard DVD Menus September 22, 2004
By Kasey G
Format:DVD
Without a doubt, Season 3 of Will and Grace is my favorite by far. "Lows In The Mid 80's", "Swimming Pools, Movie Stars" w/Sandra Bernhard and "Brothers: A Love Story" are some of the series best installments. However, the person who designed the menus on this set should be fired and banned from working on any subsequent releases. The peach-and-baby blue colored circles that fly around the screen with clips from the show are VERY distracting, annoying and not at all pleasant for the viewer. Not to mention the fact it took me almost five minutes to figure out how to access the SECOND menu screen to view episodes 4-6 on the disc. (*Clue* you have to cursor down through the episode icons, to the word "Menu" then to an arrow and hit the play button--ridiculous! Why not just use the same tasteful design that was on Seasons 1 and 2??) After the packaging errors of Season Two, you would think the manufacturers would be a little more careful.

4.0 out of 5 stars WILL complain & GRACE under pressure October 5, 2004
Format:DVD
just started on my WILL & GRACE season 3 marathon and boy am i disappointed. NO SUBTITLES!!!! to those who do not want to miss any of the extremely witty jokes on W&G, you're up for a big disappontment, especially since it is in this season that jack starts to do more of the "head tone" voice -- the screetchy dialogue -- that i sometimes miss the dialogue and ergo: the punchline.

WHAT HAPPENED NBC? Is the cost of captioning more expensive now?

Yeah, and what about that bubble menu. not very stylish (coming from packaging that is absolutely stylish). Turned me off completely, more than the lack of style, is the total disregard for ease and comfort. it takes so much effort to determine what episode titles are being shown. sheesh.

thank god it is such a good show. and yes, i will still buy future W&G DVD box sets. but please NBC! invest in your good merchandise! we're not asking for much; in fact, the last 2 seasons' box sets were well enough (although i could afford to ask for better "featurettes" -- the kind where the actors actually say something about the show). please dont short change us! we will pay good money for good stuff!

oh well. here's praying to cher that season 4 WILL have better GRACE.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing Scenes September 9, 2004
Format:DVD
"Cheaters", which originally aired as a 40 minute episode, was later split into two parts for reruns and extra scenes were added, especially near the end, with more Karen and Jack stuff. This DVD lists the episode as Cheaters Part 1 and has the 40 minute version. Couldn't they have either had the full two part version, or put Cheaters Part 1 and Cheaters Part 2 on the DVD? Where are the other scenes? At least couldn't they have put them in as special features? And if they did that with this episode, how many others did they do it too? NBC needs to fix this problem!

If you like Will & Grace chances are you're going to buy it on DVD. It was a very funny, clever (and according to Joe Biden, ground-breaking) show and well worth the purchase.

Big fan from way back. Funny to watch and identify all the references to that place in time. The show is not THAT old but many of the references would now be considered obscure.
