“Jingle Balls” (December 13, 2001)
We are closing out the year by returning to the only sitcom whose every Christmas episode is also gay: Will & Grace. It’s not great, people. And while this Laura Kightlinger-penned season for ep shows promise, it ultimately pulls back from exploring subjects that it could have done interesting work with: Will’s apparent embarrassment at dating a more effeminate man and Jack’s misguided belief that being gay means he can do design work. At least Parker Posey saves the day with unrestrained homophobia.

BTW, the neurological condition Drew mentions in this episode is real and is called witzelsucht.
