The eighth and final season of Will & Grace begins with a live episode and ends with a bittersweet finale that gives the disgruntled characters some hard-earned closure. At its heart, the sitcom isn't about a gay man and his best friend. It's about two friends who need each other as much as they think they do, who are unable to break away from each other--even if that means putting their relationships with others at risk. As selfish as the characters on Seinfeld and as chatty as the ones on Friends, Will (Eric McCormack), Grace (Debra Messing), Jack (Sean Hayes), and Karen (Megan Mullaly) are as obnoxious as they are lovable. And the actors who play them share warm chemistry, which makes even the meanest digs come across as acceptable. This final season ends with each of the main characters partnered up with their true loves; and it feels right, even if it's not what viewers may be expecting. Two of the 23 episodes--which originally aired during the 2005-2006 season on NBC--are live. While it's fun to watch the actors occasionally flub their lines or laugh at each other's antics, the episodes are not the strongest of the bunch.

The final season actually gets off to an uneven start before picking up steam about a third of the way in. Featured guest stars include a hilarious Alec Baldwin reprising his role as secret agent Malcolm, who has fallen in love with Karen. He utters sweet nothings to her such as, "When I kill myself, it's going to be for real. And I'm taking you with me." Other high-profile guest stars includes Taye Diggs as a hot romantic interest for Will, Britney Spears as Jack's on-air nemesis, Wanda Sykes as a cosmetic counter girl who Karen convinces to be her baby mama, and Daryl Hall & John Oates as, well, Oates & Hall (as they've renamed themselves). There is a wedding, an annulment, at least two children born to the primary four and the possibility of a happily ever after scenario. The show ended at a good time: not quite at its peak but at least a season or two before you just wouldn't care anymore. But here, there are many moments that tug at your heart or make you laugh out loud. In one vignette, Karen looks on incredulously as Grace allows herself to be bullied into hiring an inept Iranian woman who uses her ethnicity to intimidate all around her. She's also as useless as Karen in getting anything done to help her boss. Tsk-tsking Grace's hiring decision after the new hiree destroys some of Grace's interior designs, Karen says, "I was just sitting there cleaning my gun thinking, 'This is an office!'" It's not the line she says that makes it so funny, but Mullaly's perfect delivery. Like the other cast members, she knows her character so well that she breathes life into even the simplest lines. --Jae-Ha Kim

"The Finale" episode is included in this disc set. This was information I could not locate at the Lion's Gate website or here on Amazon or with a web search. No need to buy both this set and the separately sold "The Finale" product (unless there's additional material in "The Finale" product that you wish to own).

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Will and Grace March 6, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As always well written and funny. Extras are pretty standard if you own any of the other seasons. Season 8 live episodes are very funny, you can see the cast really enjoys their jobs. Finale is a great episode by itself, very clever how everyone ages 20 years but Karen is frozen in time.

4.0 out of 5 stars The final silly season October 21, 2008
By MF
Format:DVD
There' no argument that this is one of the funniest series of all time, but season 8 was slightly ruined by what is one of the worst finales ever. It seems to have been written by people who've never watched the show and it's a completely unrealistic end to these characters (there's no way Will and Grace would stop talking to each other for so many years).

Still, for a fan of the series and especially for those with the other seasons on DVD, this is a must-get. It has a few funny episodes (although this is probably the weakest season of all), and the bloopers are always a good addition to the set.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best comedies EVER. October 16, 2008
By MarcieK
Format:DVD
W&G is my favorite show ever and to the new recruit to the show I would say it'd be best to start from season 1, but season 8 has some great episodes, including the two live episodes which were packed with laughs. you know a show is good when the actors crack themselves up with the dialoge. If you liked W&G buy this, and if you have never seen it get season 1 and then i'm sure you'll fall in love with the series and need them all!

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of a hilarious series October 13, 2008
Format:DVD
I can't stop watching this show! It's so hilarious. There is rarely an episode that doesn't make me happy. The characters are probably my favorite from any sitcom from the past 50 years. All four of the actors won Emmy's, and that makes me so proud, because they definitely deserved it! I wasn't thrilled to see the way things turned out for them in the finale but they provided 8 great seasons of laughter that we can all watch over and over again thanks to these disks. I still think that "Karen & Jack" would have been a hilarious spin-off (with Rosario!).

5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting end. October 19, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Over eight seasons the writers of 'Will & Grace' provided some genius moments of comedy, moments whose origins are hard to fathom even after repeat viewings.

This show is right up there with 'Everybody Loves Raymond' as a classic of social commentary and observation, with a dash of madness thrown in.

Having never seen this season on TV, the first episode was a bit of a shock - it was filmed 'live' with minimal editing and some mistakes from the cast left in. It was also filmed using the same type of film that daytime soaps use. At least one other episode gets this treatment over the course of the season and, after the initial surprise, it was a welcome addition to the W&G experience.

I found the last show to be one of the best of its kind (again, as with 'Everybody Loves Raymond'). Unlike that criminally bad last Seinfeld episode, the writers of W&G kept their heads and combined the two key elements of the show. Veering a little more toward heart than comedy the end is very satisfying - no unrealistic plot twists, no last grab at self parody, just taking the story to an intelligent, imaginative end.

In between there is the usual mix of what makes W&G great. You have to admire the people who created this program and acted in it (including all the incredible supporting characters) for keeping it sharp as a tack all the way to the end.

My favorite line of this season captures one of the things that I love best about the whole series - that swift change of direction in midstream:

Karen to Jack: "I'm sorry honey, I don't know what it is today but your faggy little voice is going right through me."

I highly recommend all eight seasons.

3.0 out of 5 stars Out with a poof instead of a bang September 30, 2008
By J. Finn
Format:DVD
Not as many episodes, some very funny ones, but for the most part, stories were a stretch. One gets the sense that the actors wanted one last opportunity to explore a different side of their character, unfortunately it wasn't funny. There were a lot of inside jokes in this season from episodes past, so loyal fans will enjoy that. All in all, I was sad to see it end, and I was even sadder to see it end like this.
