A free spirited yoga instructor finds true love in a conservative lawyer and they got married on the first date. Though they are polar opposites; her need of stability is fulfilled with him, his need of optimism is fulfilled with her.
Greg gets stripping lessons at home, then discovers a secret door in their bedroom to a hidden attic closet full of dolls which scare Dharma as 'bad karma', Jane remembers the previous tenants moved ...
Greg discovers why Dharma is so eager to 'do it' with him in weird, dangerous, public places: it's a contest with Jane, the winner is awarded the duck (actually a goose), just one of many silly rules...
Will and Grace live together in an apartment in New York City. He's a gay lawyer, she's a straight interior designer. Their best friends are Jack, a gleeful but proud gay man, and Karen, a charismatic, filthy rich, amoral socialite.
There could hardly be an odder match, but love knows no reason. Assistant D.A. Greg Montgomery, the son of successful businessman Edward Montgomery and Kitty, the queen of socialite snob-ism, falls madly in love with the utterly unconventional free spirit Dharma Finkelstein, the daughter of hippie couple Larry Finkelstein and Abby O'Neil. Even if they can't break the couple up, both in-law families-who never agree on anything else-stir up trouble as they are shocked by each other's lifestyle. Greg's lazy and incompetent colleague Pete Cavanaugh and Dharma's odd friend Jane, don't help their relationship either, between which another improbable hate-love chemistry develops.Written by

Sometimes there is no need to deeply analyse television. Whatever Dharma and Greg is saying about free spirited living isn't really the issue. This programme is a comedy. It makes people laugh. And, in my opinion, it does this well. The relationship between Dharma and Greg is admirable, an example of a strong, love-filled and happy marital life, which is what we need more of. So no matter what some people say about it, my advice is to watch it and laugh.
