i loved the show, but its not app.for my children
not rated for age

I wanted to like it, but couldn't help hating it.

Even those who were big fans of Will & Grace (as was I) will thoroughly detest this lackluster show. The plot goes nowhere slowly .. the writing is trite .. and the supporting cast seems to have been fresh out of soap opera acting school. I'd like to further bury this horrible show, but I have to go throw up now.
