What I’m Watching: Will and Grace

Will and Grace: Season 11, Episode 15 “Broadway Boundaries” (B-)

I’m finding that I’m not particularly invested in this show’s characters anymore, though there are only three episodes left before it signs off for good, so it doesn’t feel like too much of a commitment. Will and Grace are both panicking about being parents, and the latest instance of that was their obsession with the gender balloons, neither of which got popped in the way that they wanted. Karen and Jack weren’t about to sit through an entire speech from Will, and he seemed to be very happy with the news that he was having a girl. Grace freaked herself out when she thought about how she would ruin her daughter like her mother did and then might prevent her son from ever being able to have sex before deciding to let go of the balloon. Her phone call to the nurse to find out the gender was definitely the best part of the episode thanks to the nurse’s attitude and her suggestion that she look between the legs of her child for the answer. Will wanting a continued relationship with Jenny after the baby was born was nice, even if he had to get to that realization after an awkward sort-of date with Chris Parnell’s newly out doctor. Jack getting an understudy part for a nameless dual role on Broadway is hardly the big break he’s always wanted, but it’s something. And I’d say it’s for the best that Karen gave the team away to Friday, even if it now leaves her without much to go other than drink and laugh at people who are less fortunate than her.
