Get out your feather boas, body glitter and “Liza with a Z” DVDs everyone, this Thursday marks the end of “Will and Grace’s” very succesful 8-year-run.
Like many of you (probably) I lost serious interest years ago and only catch the occasional ep in syndication, but I’ve been musing on it’s cultural importance this month every time I’m bombarded by their Very Special Episode (TM) marketing of the final episode. I can’t say for sure I’ll be watching, and I know the show has been both hailed and reviled by smart critics everywhere, but I applaud NBC for their exploitation/celebration of the queer zeitgeist.
Without Four’s Company, there is no Brokeback Mountain. Represent.
