NO1 Fanilow of this episode., 17 October 2006
Author: ashaleena from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I love "Will and Grace" and have to admit that this is one of my favourite episodes. It revolves around the queue for tickets to a Barry Manilow concert, which Will had hoped to be in without being spotted by any of the others - but obviously things don't always work out that way!

I particularly liked the fact that the Darlene from 'Roseanne' makes an appearance as Barry's most obsessive fan and loved her deadpan comments about Will and Grace - although my favourite moment of this episode has to be when Karen, who is holding Will's place in the queue whilst he visits the toilet, is captivated when hearing one of Barry's songs.

I'm not sure whether its the fact that its a Christmas episode or that it features Barry Manilow himself but this episode never fails to make me smile :)
