Grace is engaged to a real jerk until the relationship falls apart and she moves in with Will. It's supposed to be temporary, until Grace finds her own place, but more and more it looks like a permanent arrangement. Grace's secretary and assistant is fun-loving wealthy socialite Karen Walker (Megan Mullally); Jack McFarland (Sean Hayes) is Will's flamboyant gay friend.

Trivia

Similar to Love Sidney; although Will and Grace is more explicit in it's discussion of homosexuality. But both involve a straight woman moving in with her gay best friend in a posh Manhattan apartment and forming a new kind of family. (And in both shows the leading lady is a redhead, and the lead male is a brunette. And in both shows the man is the level headed steadying force; and the woman is kind of a lovably ditzy and wild-eyed dreamer). But Will and Grace was much more successful; running for 8 seasons in it's original run; 4 during the reboot; and was ensconced in the top 10 for much of it's run; it was an Emmy winning and critically acclaimed show; lauded by Vice President in his campaign speeches; and it was a landmark series and a turning point for LGTB rights; whereas Love Sidney is mostly a forgotten curio at this point; it failed to find an audience during it's on initial run and was cancelled after just 2 seasons. But both were important NBC sitcoms about the gay experience; both with essentially the same premise. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

[Why Paul is dating Will instead of Jack]
Will: Maybe because I read novels rather than Tiger Beat. Maybe because I can finish a sentence without the use of jazz hands. Maybe because my frame of reference extends beyond boy bands and butt-robics, or maybe, just perhaps, it's because he sees a good long-term prospect with me rather than a good hour and a half with you.

I love this show!!
11 October 2000 | by ms mossSee all my reviews

I've read a few negative comments about this show and I have to disagree. This show is great! I must admit, I didn't like the show when it first came out; it did remind me of Ned & Stacey and Grace's character seemed so pathetic. However I started watching it again this summer and I see that I was wrong. The show and characters really have grown. The friendship between W&G doesn't seem as needy as it did to me at first. In fact, now I see their friendship as a beautiful thing. To anyone who gave up on this show in the first season, I urge you to give it another try. It's funny and all the characters are terrific.
