As DVD sets go, this rates only 4 out of 5 stars with me for the following reasons:
* The 11 featurettes are cute, but they're nothing new. Calling mini-clip shows "extras" is a stretch in my book. Kudos to whomever is responsible for editing these together, but shame on NBC Home Entertainment for trying to pass these off as full-fledged "extras"!
* I'm not so crazy about the cover art. This is strictly subjective, I know. But the pea-green cover with the publicity cast photo looks a bit plain.
* The episodes don't run any longer on these disks than they did during their initial network run. Full-season sets of "Friends" include deleted scenes and dialogue and cost about the same as this set, so unfortunately that has set the bar pretty high for other TV sitcom releases. Each W&G episode on this set runs no longer than 21.5 minutes. We're not getting anything less than what NBC originally aired, but we're also not getting anything extra.
As for the episodes themselves, I rate them 4 out of 5 stars as well. Mainly because the show had yet to hit its stride creatively or comedically. Jack and Karen are clearly the breakout characters from the beginning, much wilder and unpredictable than the title characters (though extremely tame in comparison to later seasons). Will and Grace aren't nearly as flawed as they would later become, and no references to Grace being Jewish are made until half-way through this first year, making her religion look like an afterthought on the part of the show's writers.
This set is definitely worth having in my collection. But as most other W&G fans might argue, the best moments are found in seasons TWO and THREE. So if anything, these first 22 episodes just leave me wanting MORE!

I am a Friends' fan, but am now also a Will and Grace's fan! Both shows are great, but Will and Grace is a different look at how you can be friends with people that has different sexual orientation. It's a good eye opener even though everything is done with a good touch of humour. I love this show, I've bought all DVD box sets that came out and will continue to buy all the seasons until the very last one without hesitation! Very affordable box set and quite entertaining! Can't ask for more!

Will and Grace is the funniest TV sitcoms on TV. I only started watching it in the last 2 seasons, and I haven't been able to catch older episodes on syndication, so I went out and bought this DVD boxed set. And let me tell you, it was the best boxed set I've bought, with Friends: Complete First/ Second/ Third/ and Fourth Season coming in second. Not one episode on this DVD didn't make me laugh. And the thing is that you could watch it over and over again and still look forward to it because it still makes you laugh.
My only complaint is that this DVD REALLY lacks extras and special features. The box cleary says "Loaded with Special Features"... but where'd they go??? Like... there are three interviews, one with the executive producers and creators, one with the director and one with the cast. And there are 11 themed featurettes... but all it really is are clips from the episodes... so pointless... On the "Friends" DVDs... there are quizzes, commentary, music videos, multi-language subtitles etc.
Overall, this DVD was worth it's money. Even though it lacked extras, I didn't buy it for the extras anyways, so it really doesn't matter. Go out and buy this now... it's worth every penny!!!

This series is the lifeblood of NBC. Now that friends is over, what will NBC do when will and grace (6th season already folks) leaves...
This DVD contains all season one episodes, and virtually nothing else (2 interviews basically.) But who can complain with a price under $30! I actually prefer DVDs like this. I would much rather have the season, for a low price, that all the extras which average out to be $10 a piece!

This is a compilation of the first season episodes of the multi Emmy winning hit TV sitcom "Will And Grace". This stars Debra Messing, Eric McCormick, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally. When the first episode aired in 1998, there was no other show like it. It remains ahead of its time to this day. Every script forces the audience's laughter to explode line after line. Its unique storyline and its many surprising events give the audience the unforgettable experiences. It's great that the producers can create a series dealing with homosexuality, a virtue that many unfortunately do not accept, and add some light to it. A few years ago, few other projects featured this.
Those who didn't watch the first season will get a chance to see Will and Grace's lonely days before living together, Karen speaking in her low voice, and of course, Jack being Jack. This features some of the episodes that have influenced many modern day sitcoms and movies. Such combination makes this compilation worth the buyers' money. Fans of this show should also watch for Season Two to be released in the near future.
****Watch "Will And Grace" every Thursday on NBC at 8:00 PM central time.

A very funny show in its first very funny season. Granted, if you watch several episodes back to back the jokes seem a bit repetitive. After all, what you really get are multiple punchlines of the same joke. But if watched in moderation they are enjoyable every time.
For a box set release, however, it comes up a bit short. We do get interviews with the cast, director, and creators. But one problem with that is the interviewer: I think he considers this interview to be HIS moment in the spotlight, so he milks it for every comment he can make. He doesn't really give the cast a chance to shine in the interview. And truth be told, they don't look too excited about being there anyway. What might have been better would have been some outtakes and bloopers, as I am SURE they have some great ones. And what I have always wanted to see was some perspective that the live audience members get to see at the tapings. Have a video camera follow the audience in from the studio parking lot to the soundstage, through the audience warm-ups, the cast intros, the taping itself, etc. I have attended 5 sitcom tapings over the years at various studios, and to me that was always at least as fun as the show itself. You get to see how the permanent and fly sets are arranged with each other, how some of the production aspects work, etc. That is just my personal wish list for a box set feature, but I think it is a good example of the kind of value-added material we should expect for the hefty price we pay for these TV series box sets, dontcha think?
But I went out and bought the W&G DVD set without hesitation the day it came out and I do enjoy it (especially the lack of commercials). I just feel we should expect a lot more in the way of bonus features in these pricey box sets.
