There are some television shows, that once they go off the air, are better left to the past. Then there are other shows who live on and continue to speak to the audience.
After a 11 year hiatus, Will and Grace is returning to the small screen in the fall.
What can I say about this show? Not only was it incredibly funny and well written, but it changed the world without anyone noticing. While we were laughing and suspending our disbelief that the people we were watching were fictional characters and not real, our minds were slowly opening. Before Will and Grace, gay characters were either an extreme stereotype, a background character or just all together invisible. Will and Grace paved the way, not for fictional gay characters, for those in real life who were either in the closet or out of the closet.
The cultural impact is immeasurable, as were the belly laughs.
Welcome back Will and Grace. You’ve come at the perfect time.
