Excuuuse Me! This is still a good season!!!!
on September 29, 2007
I don't understand why the person above me thinks this is the season where it goes downhill. Did people notice that Friends was not so funny after its 6th season? And that in its 10th season, it was really just scraping the bottom of the barrel? W&G, in its 7th season, may have lost some of its "HO-MOJO", but altogether, still pulled off some great writing.
The show peaks from seasons 1 to 6, but bounces back with an even stronger 8th season, which, I am hoping gets released soon.
I have never watched a television show more times. The cast is unbelievably talented and they all seem to have grown more naturally and maturely towards portraying their characters as the show progressed. None of them ever "acted".
It is arguable that most of the time, Jack and Karen were the ones that were funniest, but without the balance and sanity that Will & Grace provided, the whole thing would have been a vain and ludicrous showcase of a flamboyantly gay satire.
As a gay man, I find this show doubly appealing. Not only is it hugely entertaining, but it also conveys several positive messages: that Homosexuals a)can be successful and productive members of society; b)are just like everybody else in that they value friendships and relationships; c)are people too and that they should NOT BE TOLERATED but EMBRACED; d)are truly members of the superior race because they enjoy the best of both worlds, are hilarious and great to live with, and, have impeccable taste!!!
Finally, one of the most touching scenes (season 8/A Little Christmas Queer) was when Will asked his mother why she cheered on her 9 yr. old gay nephew's christmas show while she ruined every one of his productions when he was a child by being so uncomfortable and unsupportive. She replied, "because back then, I didn't know the kind of person you would turn out to be."
Will & Grace will always be remembered as a show that mattered and broke ground because not only did it make us laugh and cry with delight, but it also made us think about how we are all wonderfully unique, and how, at the same time, we are also still one and the same: HUMAN.
