Will & Grace on NBC

Last night I was going to tape "Friends" and "Just Shoot Me". Since I knew the President was going to be on at 8 pm, I decided to tape a three hour block to make sure I got my shows okay. So, I got "Will & Grace" as well. I had never been interested in seeing the show, but since I had it anyway, I watched it. It's really a funny and very clever show! I might have to start watching it regularly. That skinny guy across the hall is hilarious.

Been watching it from the start more or less, the show should be called Karen And Jack, as Will and Grace are a lot of annoying.

Not yet seen last nights show, but will see it tonight the joys of tivo.

Karen is hilarious, and Jack is very good, not sure how I feel about the whole Jack with a kid thing but whatca gonna do.

I've watched this show from the beginning, and really enjoy it. I, too, am not thrilled with the story of Jack finding out he has a son, however. And I hope Woody Harrelson's stint as Grace's boyfriend is over! But I really enjoy the rapport between Will and Grace -- they are perfect for each other, if not for one thing!

What else has Jack (can't think of his real name) been in before this. This has got to be his break.

He was in Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss. Never saw it, but passed by it at Blockbuster once.

IMO, it really is just a bunch of stereotypes, but what sitcom isn't ridden with stereotypes? I don't like "Charmed" anymore, so I figure it's worth my 30 minutes.

Saw Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss. OK movie. Light but entertaining enough movie.

Will & Grace is one of my favorite shows. Catch every episode. I never fail to laugh out loud and usually several times an episode. They don't make Jack's kid a real focal point so it should be OK for a little while at least. It has more to do with Jack's situation as a dad. Woody's character and Grace don't work well together. The four main characters should always be the focus. Karen's maid is a good addition.

It would be hilarious if Will & Karen found themselves in the same bed after a few drinks or Grace and Jack together for the same matter.

Best Karen line ever: "Will and Grace are like Siamese twins joined at their boring personalities."

you watch Friends and Just Shoot Me, but don't watch Will & Grace?
Might take a few episodes to get the feel for the characters.
Now that Survivor has started, I'll be watching Survivor and CSI and taping NBC. If it wasn't for Will & Grace, I wouldn't bother taping NBC at all.....but since I tape Will and Grace, I also usually tape Friends and stuff also........

Karen rules.

Rosie on Will & Grace 1/31

I think Rosie was pretty funny on Will & Grace tonight as Jack's son's mom. I wonder if it will become a recurring role?

That's a bit of a stretch for him :synacism:

It's like Sean Penn playing a retardo. Easy to see why he can get a oscar nomination......

You mean he's going to limit it to just Will & Grace? Wait, he can't drop the f-bomb on TV. This can't happen.

Moving to TV Talk...

I've never trusted my gaydar, so the whole question of whether this is typecasting is a mystery to me. I tend to prefer Ben, anyway...but I guess he's kinda busy with rehab these days.

Are we discussing a TV show?

I'm no rocket scientist but I believe that the fact you can answer "yes" to this question means that it belongs there.

It's TV Talk, not TV Show Talk, so why were the Superbowl threads here?
