Will & Grace is everything I didn’t know I wanted, needed, or missed until it came back stronger and funnier than ever. I always liked but was never a huge fan of the original, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from this comeback, but I’ve been more than pleasantly surprised. Will and Grace, Karen, and Jack have aged and added seasoning to their sassiness.
Some of the highlights this season have been “Who’s Your Daddy?” where Tony winner Ben Platt played Will’s much younger boyfriend. It led to a hilariously funny yet poignant discussion about not forgetting how being gay has changed over the last couple of decades, “The people that fought and loved and died so that you could walk down the street in skinny jeans with rights you never even knew you never had!”
And then there’s “Grandpa Jack” telling his possibly gay grandson that he is exactly who he is supposed to be.
Will & Grace now not only makes me laugh out loud, but it can bring me to tears, sometimes all in the very same scene, and I’ll forever be thankful for its return. -- Christine
