Getting old isn’t a big thing, it’s when people realize that you are getting older that is the drag. This weeks Will & Grace featured Ben Platt as a guest star and my loins exploded. If you aren’t familiar with Ben Platt, please get Dear Evan Hansen educated.
But this week, Jack was called out for being older as he hit on a 20 something who remarked that “Daddy’s love him.” Of course – Will also got hit on by a 20 something who didn’t mind him being a “daddy.”
Lets break it all down.
JACK IS LOOSING HIS YOUTH
So Jack can’t deal with getting older, which hey – it’s never easy for anyone. So who do you go to? Well that would be Karen, cause even though she’s cray cray she does have access to all the best meds. So she’s determined to help Jack, but lord, Jack should just embraced his age.
But take the low lights of a club, some hottie believes Jack when he’s young and is going back to Jacks place – Jack needs to cut himself out of the compression garment and get ready. But Jack definitely over did his makeup and so we’re not shocked his date went running for the hills.
KAREN IS STILL KAREN
Karen wants a raise. Now, this has come about after her staff at home asked for a raise. So hey, they bring up the idea that it makes them feel valued, so Karen herself wants to feel valued.
But Grace says that she doesn’t do anything. And Karen would like to beg to differ. What abo
She got a high tech shower and programmed it herself. Now I would say that Karen is dumb to do that, but I honestly think that she’s one of the smartest people on this show. She knows that Grace needs her, but as they lock themselves in the shower, and they go through the motions, they realize that they both do need each other.
The thing that we love about Will & Grace is the friendships and these two – they are amazing.
COUGARING ISN’T EASY
So Will is seeing this 20 something played by Ben Platt. And as strong as my love is for Ben Platt, even I was like LORD CALM YOURSELF. He embraced every cliche about young people and I couldn’t even.
But Will is trying, cause hey, why not. He’s tried to set up this romantic night, cooking and stuff, but like why not. But apparently cooking is so “throwback Thursday.” I mean, I call it fiscally responsible. But hey.
And yes, Will’s trying to overlook it, until he realizes that this kid knows nothing about what people have gone through in the fight for gay rights. I don’t blame Will for being like nope, nope.
Over All Thoughts
- Ben Platt made me LOL the entire way through the series.
- I want to know how Karens hair never moves
- Peek-a-boo sleeves, I will be throwing away all mine.
- Grace has the best coat.
- NEVER EVER Facetime your best friend into a date.
- I need to go back and watch the original episodes.
Will & Grace airs Thursdays on NBC.
