Does the new 5-minute “Will & Grace” trailer get your hopes up?

Here’s yet more evidence that Will & Grace will be steamrolling back into our lives this fall.

NBC just released a five-minute trailer that finds the gang in fine form — being alternately catty, neurotic, oddly staid, and winsomely flamboyant.

They burst into song. They banter. They joke about Air B-on-B (Air Boy on Boy, eh? Heh?)

Count us totally ready for this to happen.

    A lot has happened since 2006 when this series ended. We’ve moved on. Gay acceptance, marriage, attitudes, have all changed. Young gay people of 18 now, who were kids in 2006, were seven years old then. Will they find this series relevant?

      The show wasn’t for Generation Y the first time so why would they care to pull that same demographic now that they have grown up in post-rainbow America?

    But the promo, with a broadway style musical number and over-the-top lighting effects, wasn’t anything at all like the old show. If this is the direction they are taking W&G, I wouldn’t watch.

    The promo was wonderful. I appreciated they were tongue-in-cheek making fun of themselves. Its going to be a fun show. Count me in.

    I laughed, I cried, I set my DVR. Old friends are the best kind.

  • IDoNotHaveToAgreeWithYou

    They seem to have the same fears about it that I do. I hope they can recapture the magic.

  • BitterOldQueen

    No it doesn’t. Like the original, it was forced, awkwardly sterotypical, unfunny, and didn’t know when to end.

  • sfbeast

    Of course I’m going to watch. At least to give it a try.

  • DCguy

    But the real question. There was a laugh track on the promo. Did ANY of you laugh at any of the lines that were supposed to be funny?

    • ShowMeGuy

      Yes, because they were funny.

    I watched the first year and that was it. It never appealed to me. Didn’t find it funny. Now with even more available television stations I doubt I watch this round.

    It was — dare I say it? — surprisingly dull. The self-consciously witty dialogue, the wistful musical number… it was all just incomprehensibly, shockingly dull.

    I dunno, guys. It did feel like a relic (“Air Boy on Boy”? Seriously?). I was hoping for something sharper and wittier, and what I got was “Wow. Know how many fake TV shows we watched?” Maybe some things need to be left in the past where they belong.

    Dont misunderstand: I’ll probably watch it, just to say I did. But based on this, my expectations are pretty low.

    I didn’t watch it the first time around. I tried once, but they all talked so fast that I couldn’t understand what they were saying.
