Product Description

The eighth and final season of "Will & Grace" on DVD loaded with special featuers, including all new Themed Featurettes, a Season 8 Outtake Reel, newly recorded audio commentatries, and cast interviews.

Amazon.com

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).

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.

I had to buy season 8 as I already had seasons 1-7. But, season 8 was the most disappointing edit and presentation.
In order to have all of the episodes from the final season on the same number of DVDs that are in seasons 1-7, they heavily edited season 8.
As an example, the final story arc concerned an on going story line involving Deborah Harry. I could not have been more disappointed to find that the DVDs had completely edited out the Deborah Harry story arc from the released DVDs.
Deborah Harry was not only a running dialogue joke, she made a cameo appearance in the final episodes of Stanley's death and funeral. IT IS COMPLETELY GONE FROM THE SEASON 8 DVD SET! Instead, the manufacturer's took the final episodes, edited them heavily, and completely left Deborah Harry out.
For those of us who were true fans, it was a disappointment that will never be resolved or healed. Fortunately, I had taped the final season on VHS to watch until the DVDs came out. I never knew that as a person with the final season on VHS, I was one of the few people who will ever know how Will & Grace truly concluded.

If you like Will and Grace this is def for you! Some extras like bloopers and interviews included. If you are buying the entire series I'd recommend buying them together in the bundle to save some money vs buying the seasons individually.

Will and Grace is a series that i miss..it was hilarious, cutting-edge, and entertaining. There is a character for everyone to find humor from. Grace and her epic fails, will and his lack of relationship skills, Jack and his lack of social grace or job skills, Karen and her lack of social grace, or Rosario and her lack of caring whatsoever!

Most of this season was depressing to watch, but was held up by the supporting characters. The 5 star rating is because there really wasn't a better way for the show to go if it was planning on ending. I'm not going to put personal bias into how I rate the product. The quality, price, and packaging were excellent. No complaints.

This was great, however I noticed for I bought these each separate that it is just like the last final episode of Will and Grace. However I do believe you get more of the actors talking about each other and the show also the sets and all the goofy things they do. I adore this and do not care that it is just like the very first one I bought which was the ending one. Well worth the $$

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.
