When it first hit our TV screens 20 years ago, Will & Grace was completely groundbreaking.
It was the first prime-time sitcom to actually depict members of the LGBTI community as the main characters.
Will and Jack (and Grace and Karen) taught us a hell of a lot about dating, working and living as a gay person in the nineties and early noughties.
But since the show wrapped up, we’ve seen a lot more diverse LGBTI voices on our TV screens through shows like Looking, Transparent, Please Like Me and The L Word.
There’s one scene in the new season of Will & Grace that has the power to save humanity. We’re not kidding.
When the Will & Grace revival was first announced a lot of people wondered whether we still needed the show.
And simply put – we do.
There’s one particular storyline that reinforces the idea that we need Will & Grace more than ever.
It plays out in episode four when Jack meets his grandson, Skip.
In case you missed it, in the original series Jack discovered he had a son, Elliot, from donating his sperm.
Jack and Elliot became quite close but then we found out in the revival series that Elliot married an ultra-conservative Texan woman and left his father off the guest list for his wedding.
Jack and Elliot hadn’t spoken for years, then little Skip turned up on Will’s doorstep.
