1 Pilot
Will Truman (Eric McCormack), a handsome, successful Manhattan lawyer, and Grace Adler (Debra Messing), a beautiful, self-employed interior designer, are best friends. In fact, they're absolutely perfect for each other - except that Will just happens to be gay. When Grace receives an unexpected marriage proposal from her boyfriend, Will tries to be supportive of her decision but finally tells her that she's making a mistake, even though he's putting their friendship at risk. The situation is complicated by interference from Grace's socialite assistant, Karen Walker (Megan Mullally), and Will's outrageous friend, Jack McFarland (Sean Hayes).

Will (Eric McCormack) must decide whether to support Grace's (Debra Messing) independence by encouraging her to take an apartment across town or selfishly keep her close by inviting her to share his living space.

Best show on earth. Never understood why Google only has seasons 1-4 available 🤷🏾‍♂️. Had been waiting for years for them to get the rest of the seasons within their catalog to no avail. If you hurry up, Amazon has all the rest of the seasons (including the newer ones) for $10 each on Prime Video.
