How Does It Hold Up: Will and Grace

Before the start of the newer show/season, I thought it would be a great idea to rewatch the original. It took me a while, but I thought it would be great since I didn’t really have much of a memory of it, though I do remember a couple of episodes here and there. It started out really well. The first two season were really good, followed but a couple of mediocre seasons. I would definitely call the final season my favorite. Of all the characters, I would say that Karen is my favorite character. She is slightly mean (insert sarcasm), but you know deep down that she would anything for her friends. Some of the many things that I didn’t like about the show include Will and Grace being self-absorbed at times where they really shouldn’t be, making fun of moments and things that really weren’t funny, and exclamations of the f-word. At this point, I’m fairly confident that my uncomfortableness of some moments is because of how things are now versus how things were then. The audience was laughing at things at I just was uncomfortable with and couldn’t really understand. At other times, I was amazed that Will and Grace’s friendship stood up against some of the things that they did to each other. That aside, I’m excited and scared for this new season. I hope that everything is updated for the times, the chemistry is still there, and they don’t ruin the great ending that the original series had. I’m crossing my fingers for the foursome.

Life is Just a Game

In the world of No Game No Life, life is just that: a game. There is no war and no violence; everything is decided on by games. Also, different races of creatures. Just what the sibling duo called “Blank” likes it. (They’re not in a relationship. I think. … I’m pretty sure. … Just ignore it.) The entire time you are rooting for these two as they seem to get themselves into situations that seem impossible to get out of alive. It also has you scratching your head at the complexity of everything. Also, there is lots of fan service. You have been warned. Also, there may or may not be a second season or a movie coming out for it. Nothing has really been confirmed, but let me know if anyone has heard anything.
