Will & Grace (finally)

I've never really watched the show about the mad ginger bitch and her three careworkers before. But, in the last couple of weeks, I've become hooked.

I watched it in the early days, when it was about issues and sharing, and got a bit bored. What's the point of a sitcom about celibate gay people? Or is that dissing Father Ted?

And then, last week, I found some DVDs on sale for £2 at Paddington, and devoured them on the train journey home.

Suddenly, it's series 6, and Grace isn't in it. Karen's engaged to John Cleese and they're pimping out their daughter Minnie Driver, while Will has become such a hopeless Wendy that his cookery teacher is secretly buying him hookers. And suddenly, Jack is the sensible one with a job in nursing.

By the time I saw Karen trying to drive a car while shouting at it, I was in love.

"Car, STOP!"

Ah I love it. Karen's always been the best character. Every line delivered impeccably.

"By your inflection I can tell that you think what you're saying is funny, but... no."
