Back in 1998, Will’s hair was a little shaggier, Grace’s face was a little rounder, Karen’s voice was a little deeper, and Jack was…just Jack. But what’s remarkable is how sharp Will & Grace was right out of the gay – um, gate. Though some one-liners now seem a bit dated (”Shake it, Puff Daddy!”), the majority of the homo humor is as fresh today as it was five years ago (a botox joke in 1999?), and the future Emmy-winning sitcom exhibits the confidence of a show that knows it’s onto something memorable. it’s especially fun to see Molly Shannon’s debut guest spot as Will and Grace’s catfighting neighbor. Still, a boxed set of a series easily found in syndication demands fabulous extras, and here’s where this release drops the soap. We get lifeless cast and crew interviews, but not a single outtake? as Karen would say disapprovingly, ”Oh, honey!”
