I absolutely loved Will and Grace, and so I thought the Starter Wife would be similar to it. Will and Grace was witty, funny, sharp....the Starter Wife TV series was appalling and was nowhere close. I had never watched the show and rented the DVD to check it out. The show was so ghastly that I could not finish watching the entire disc. Flat, stupid, idiotic are some of the words that come to my mind in regards to this show. I completely understand why there was only ONE season of this show. Honestly, I am surprised that the season did not end at the first episode. It was unbearable.
I will try my best to wipe my mind clean and only picture Debra Messing as the charming and funny Grace Adler from one of my most favorite shows, Will and Grace.
