This is a great show but the dvds are lacking

"First off, season four is perhaps the best season of the show period. The plotlines were creative, the jokes were incredibly smart, the acting was amazing, and the show was just really in it's sitcom niche. That said, these DVD sets are taking way too long to come out and then are quite expensive for the lack of features on them. I for one do not even consider the "themed featurettes" a special feature as they're pretty much a clip show. It is nice to see the inclusion of outtakes, but I'd much rather see some behind the scenes stuff! I keep hoping that with each DVD release we'll see things getting better, but it's just not happening. However, this season's DVD set is MUCH better than season 3, except for the menu screens."
Where is season 5?

"This show is one of the greatest comedy sitcoms of all time- but it is taking forever to collect them- where is season 5? Or 6, 7 and 8 for that matter? Please let us know when we can expect the next fantastic season- it's been ages since season 4 was released!!!!!"

"the reason the release took sooooo long was because the cast was renegotiating their contracts and nothing could be released until that was completed and luckily it was resolved!!!! this is a really really great season!
Will and Grace's professionally crazed fan, brit "

"I only discovered Will & Grace in reruns. It's one of the funniest shows on air right now. For those of you who think that the premise is unbelievable, it's not. I've had a best friend who was gay and a lot of the dynamics from the show are true to life. I know having gone through some if it.
Will and Grace are best friends but Will is a gay man and Grace is a heterosexual female. They remain friends no matter what happens even though they do fight and walk away from each other for awhile. They always get back together. Jack and Karen are the friends that makeup the foursome. In Jack's case though he's more leach than friend. He never keeps a job for long, always wants a handout and fancies himself a great want to be actor, dancer and singer. Jack is gay and flamboyant which drives Will nuts because while he is gay he is not outrageously so nor is he effeminant. Karen is filthy rich. She's a pill popping, boozing, abuse giving, well dressed woman who thinks that other folks were created to serve her every desire.
Kudos to the casting deparment. Each member of the foursome creates their character accurately. Normally in tv land, it might take two or three seasons before the players really nail their characters down but the cast of Will and Grace did it in half a season. By the middle of season one, the Karen character had found her niche with the high pitched nasal voice and her sarcastic laugh. All play off of each other very well. In fact I find Megan's (Karen) real voice much more annoying than her false one. All in all I have to say that I am putting this show in my personal list of all time funny shows (All in the Family, Mash, Night Court, Frazier, Absolutely Fabulous) with AITF in the lead of course.
I do wish the studio would get it together and release season five already. What's up with that? Fans are tired of waiting. Come on people get the lead out and crank it up!!"
