"Things that you lean on!" "Each other!!!!" Episode one. Yes, they are good in playing Pyramid. I know this is just a TV Show, but still, it's about people and relationships, friendship and other values. It's not about improving yourself.
I asked myself What's the idea of Will and Grace? Some might say they end up living together like in marriage
maybe it's about showing people that the word FAMILY can have another meaning. The whole idea of family is shown differently.
From the beginning, there's Grace, who's not able to think for herself and to make her own decisions. During the seasons she kinda tries to learn that. Or she doesn't try at all. Her problems are so easy to solve for Will, who at the beginning doesn't have it's own problems. Sometimes, we get the idea that he doesn't have a life at all. During the seasons, we see them both dating people and getting involved with others, but it all ends the same way. They get single again, both of them. And then they try on
like in real life. One moment you think to yourself why do they even try?
During the whole show, you hear things like: "I can't do this without you
" "I need you", they count on each other, they lean on each other. Those things sound sweet. They just sound sweet. If you wish to avoid loneliness, get used to being alone. If you wish to avoid pain, get used to control your emotions. Leaning is close to depending. Depending is bad even if you depend on the person you love most, the one who would (probably) never hurt you, the one who is perfect for you, still you shouldn't depend.
I recognize a lot of Will's and Grace's features in my friends. That are the features that are laughed at in this sitcom. They are shallow, materialistic, jealous, possessive, even narrow-minded at one point. While sticking to each other, of course it's hard to make a healthy connection to someone else. What will Will think of Grace's boyfriend, and does Grace like his this thing appear as the main topic in this show. Of course, we all laugh about that, but if you think about it - it's so wrong. And then it turns out that the first impression seems to be wrong, and they all make such a drama about that. People should not be like that. The audience can learn lots of thing from this show such as don't be like that. It's funny overall, but see, look at them it sometimes looks so tempting and sweet to live with your best friend, to depend, even to 'stick' to each other. Well, it's not sweet at all. Get independent once you find a really good friend and the things between you are clear, you both know how you feel about each other, and you both know that you love the other one don't be like Will and Grace. They are lovable, yes, for example I sometimes like Grace so much, I wish I was in Will's shoes (although I don't like Prada) but I don't want to be someone's mom, dad or what ever. BEST FRIENDS should help the other one in improving him/herself as a person. They should be strict to each other, because that's the only way of stopping your best friend from repeating the same mistakes in life.
When I started to watch the 1st season of Will and Grace I was amazed. I said to myself I wanna live like that. I want someone to lean on, to count on all day and night, to call up in the night if I can't sleep from all the problems I have... Years went by and I saw how wrong that is. If I ever lived like that, I would feel like standing in one place and not moving at all. And beside me, my best friend, would be doing the same. Repeating mistakes. No. Never. I have really good friends, girls, but we're not like Will and Grace. OK, they might be like Grace, but when I notice that, I have reactions like "Stop being like that - pathetic, depending, weak. Get strong and I'm here to help you. Get secure in my love for you and the strong friendship we have. And now let's fix you, let's fix me let's deal with life and the problems we all have. Let's be better, stronger."
I know it's just a TV Show created for the audience, after they own needs, but still it's there, with all the stories we have seen, with all emotions the characters went through, with all emotions we went through. We are here, watching them, laughing and of course thinking. Let's be better, stronger.
