* ButNotTooGay: A common criticism of this show, regarding Will's love life. Ironic because [=McCormack=] is straight but Creator/JohnBarrowman, who is gay, tested for the character of Will and was said to be "not gay enough".

Added DiffLines:

** Subverted with Will and Grace. They never had sex during their relationship, but after they broke up, Will had sex with another woman, just to be sure he was gay. When Grace finds out about this, she is deeply wounded that Will didn't come to her, until he explains that he didn't want to jeopardize their friendship.

And it's also worth noting that ''Will & Grace'' is one of the few sitcoms in which all the four main actors won an Emmy, which is remarkable! (The only other two on record are ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' and ''Series/TheGoldenGirls,'' so they're in good company.)

) Also, it featured the final acting work of Creator/GeneWilder before he quit in disgust at the turns the industry was taking and turned entirely to writing.

* NegativeContinuity: In the first season, Will's dad says that when Will came out to his parents, he walked into the living room and said, "Mom, Dad, I'm gay, and I want to bring my boyfriend home for Christmas." From the third season onwards the story is that when Will came out to his dad they were in a car and his dad drove into a telephone pole. Then, at [[spoiler: Will's dad's funeral]], Will's mother says that they've never met any of his boyfriends. Though that's not necessarily negative continuity: Will could have intended to bring that college boyfriend home but the boyfriend had other commitments or someting like that.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Partway through, they started to imply VagueAge with Karen, joking either she made a deal with the devil, or was so perpetually filled with pills and alcohol, she was somehow pickled and therefore immortal. She then would occasionally make a comment that would sound more appropriate coming from a bigoted person from the turn of the ''last'' century. She refused to believe that a woman could be a doctor, and when Rosario once said that she played Maria in a production of ''The Sound of Music,'' Karen said she would have paid six chickens to see that (Rosario's response: "It was an Equity Theater, you racist bitch.") Frequently she comments that she believes than El Salvador (where Rosario is from) is some dusty, barren SouthOfTheBorder LatinLand stereotype.
