Critic Reviews for Will & Grace Season 1

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (38)

While they're adorable, the sitcom is much more satisfying when it deals with midlife issues.

Jan 8, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The cast proves itself to be as energetic, opinionated, and hysterical as ever.

Jan 8, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

It's a great reminder of how funny, and how good, this show once was - and, surprisingly, still can be.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

There's no hesitancy from the actors in terms of re-committing to these roles with a vigor that still drives the series like an old Wild Mouse amusement park ride from back in the day.

Jan 8, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

As one of my wise friends put it, 'The Will & Grace revival could be garbage and I'd still be pretty loyal to my martini-soaked Karen Walker.'

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

Will and Grace are Sisyphean sitcom figures, rolling the rock for romantic love, only to wake up at the end of every story arc back at the bottom of the mountain, making pop culture jokes with their besties instead.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

The jokes and storylines have only gotten weaker with age, and what was once a trailblazer is now left far behind.

Jan 8, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

My main problem with this reincarnation, as with the original show, is that the zippy one-liners are clever without being really funny.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

Right from the opening, the cast feels like home. The chemistry is easy and quick and the jokes are flying.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

If you were a fan of the show original Will & Grace then you will find plenty to love about this revival. The cast is still phenomenal and the writing is still sharp.

Jan 8, 2021 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

This is nostalgia TV at its finest, with the quartet's snap comedic timing and the studio audience's uproarious laughter enveloping you like a warm blanket as you watch.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

In fact, the show is better than it was in its final seasons of its first iteration, when it was guest-star heavy, the jokes were tired, and it seemed that Jack and Karen took over the show.
