This is extremely rude!
Carol, a perfect Christmas movie about longing and not being ugly people Harge, finally arrived on Netflix today. Wednesday should have been a day when we all, gay and thought we were gay but were actually trans the whole time alike, should have been able to watch Carol in isolation. Perhaps we would even tweet with one another about the Oscar-nominated film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara who are both great in it let me tell you. It would have been fine.
But then Will & Grace had to dothis! And my god, Rindy, I’m furious.
The same day that Carol hit Netflix, NBC Universal announced that all 194 episodes of their claaaaaassic Emmy-winning sitcom that made huuuuuuge strides for gaayyy representaaaaation on broadcast TV, Will & Grace, will be available to stream online for the first time ever on Thursday. Tomorrow. The day after today.
“As we gear up for the launch of the upcoming season premiere, I can’t think of a better way to reintroduce Will & Grace to the cultural zeitgeist than by giving audiences the opportunity to watch this historic and hilarious series wherever and whenever they want,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a press release. “With its witty comebacks, pop-culture references and social commentary, Will & Grace is one of the most binge-able comedies in television history, and I am certain fans both old and new will jump on this opportunity to devour it.”
Oh, just spit in my face!
All eight seasons of Will & Grace will be available to stream on Hulu, the NBC app, and via various on-demand platforms.
I’m very happy for the people who are happy.
