travels with scout
I am glad that we actually got an appearance by the awesome Fred Willard as Phil's Dad on Modern Family (being on a webcam for two minutes doesn't count) but this was just the same old, same old from ABC's popular comedy.
The show does have some undisputable appeal, but it frankly is not among the funniest comedies on TV: there I said it. The show was martyred when it actually made a list of the top 10 shows of the decade a few months ago! But to me it's just an average show.
Definitely worth watching as there are always a few good lines every episode, but just not as funny as pompous critics will lead you to believe.moreless
Phil's father visits
If there was a weak link this season, it was this one. This episode is better than most series best episodes. This was still a good episode. I liked how Mitchell was getting into Cameron's performance. I thought it was funny when he said to Hailey "Aren't are boyfriends great!" It was classic Cameron that he really into his role. I also thought it was funny when Cameron got offended by Hailey's friends when they said no to Cameron at first because he is old. I like the role of Phi's dad. You can see where Phil gets his uniqueness. I also like while Phil's dad was dealing with serious issue,it was not brought up and turned this episode into a serious one. My favorite part is how Claire got attached to the dog and didn't want to give him up. I also thought it was funny how Luke was acting like a dog. A good episode with some good laughs.moreless
