Will & Grace: Season 7
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Season 7 is a typically star-studded one, but the personages who appear as themselves (Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson) do not fare as well as those who portray characters. Sharon Stone displays her comedic instincts as a no-nonsense therapist who sparks a rivalry between Will and Grace. Molly Shannon makes a welcome return as the unstable Val. Kristin Davis appears as Nadine, Vince's own "Grace," who hates Will until Grace sets her straight. Alan Arkin also appears as Grace's emotionally distant father. How much fun would cast commentary have been? The next best thing is the bonus outtake reel that captures the ensemble's genuine chemistry that redeems even the most obvious of jokes. --Donald Liebenson

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.Read more ›
As for the season itself, I'm in the minority of W&G fans by really liking this season. Many fans claim that season 7 is their least favorite, but I think of it as the recovery season, or the comeback season, if you will. Like another reviewer said, this season the show returned to the basics, which is all the show ever needed, if you ask me. I think the show's genuine problems were found in seasons 5 and 6: Grace married Leo, Karen dated and subsequently married Lyle, and Debra Messing's absence throughout season 6 due to her pregnancy definitely took its toll on the overall quality and dynamics of the show. Seasons 5 and 6 certainly had great episodes, but they also had their share of duds which precipitated the show's decline in ratings and quality.
What works about season 7 is that it is complex, proportionately mixed with comedy and drama: Grace getting over her failed marriage to Leo and Karen getting over her husband's death and her failed brief marriage to Lyle, all underlying the comedic situations that Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen usually find themselves in. I especially like how no time is wasted stringing Leo along-- he disappears after the first episode!Read more ›
The show peaked during the episode when Will and Grace had their big fight when Grace refused to have a baby with Will because she wanted to be in a relationship with Leo. Harry Connick Jr. killed the show. Seasons 6, 7, and 8 were basically a bunch of flavor-of-the-week guest stars and unrealistic storylines (Jack becoming a back up dancer for Janet Jackson...). The show should've just ended on a high note after season 6.
