obsessed with this hilarious show!!!!
18 January 2006 | by immimi90See all my reviews

I really love will and grace. It is by far the funniest show to every hit television. I watch every single Thursday and i look forward for it the whole week. will, grace, jack, and Karen are performed by talented actors and actresses. The writers, director, producers and the whole crew is doing an excellent job! I can't get enough of it. Every single season kept me laughing and season 8 will ,unfortunately, be the last. I hope that the writers wrap everything up lovely. This show is definitely award worthy. The characters share a tight bond with one another. I can't really choose which one is my favorite character because i love them all!
