Critic Reviews for Will & Grace Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5)

Perhaps no show has done more to bring LGBT characters and issues into the mainstream. But Will & Grace is also a very entertaining show.

The series is so shrewd, cute, and funny it seems impossible that it comes from two guys (executive producer-writers Max Mutchnick and David Kohan) who brought us another NBC sitcom, the dumb, ugly, and un-funny Boston Common.

"Will & Grace"...carries a big buzz, some of which is driven by the on-screen compatibility of co-stars Eric McCormack and Debra Messing. Clearly, they work together.

What the show doesn't have is an original premise...or a compelling dynamic between Messing and co-star Eric McCormack.

Its premise is humdrum, its two co-stars lack chemistry, and it seems essentially indistinguishable from most of NBC's other slipshod tripe.

Good acting, intriguing relationships and some of the best supporting actors in any series make the show easy to endorse.
