    After a solid series episodes, this one was a drop off. Was it bad? No not at all. It's not just that something was lacking. The one bad part was Cameron and Mitchell's part. I did enjoy Cameron getting all diva-ey but other then that, I felt that this could've been done better. Phil has always tried to be positive even under tough circumstances but this time it was tested. I am glad to see Claire cheering him up. Speaking of Claire, I also her storyline with Hailey. Hailey has always been too embarrassed by her parents. Even though she was misguided, I was glad to see that she wants her parents to stay together. Another good part was the story with Jay and Manny. While they don't have a bad relationship it's not great either. This episode is a major step toward that. Overall this episode was good, just not as good as the other ones.moreless

    Modern Family had a few standout episodes in its first season, but the majority of them were good for a few laughs and really nothing else; this felt like one of those season one episodes. The Claire and Haley were ever so boring and find it funny that a show called Modern Family could be so cliched.



    Speaking of cliched, Lily shooting a commercial? That's never been done on a sitcom before. At least make it funny if you are going to rehash something done to death like the kid going on a commercial.



    I think they should change the name of this show to Cliched Family.moreless
  • Claire tries to insinuate Haley should breakup with Dylan... but she thinks she's talking about her & Phil.

    9.0
    Okay, so yeah.



    Mitchell-Cam storyline: So Mitchell forbids Cam to make Lilly participate on a commerical, but he sneaks behind his back and dioes so anyways. Turns out the commerical was a japanese stereotype about 2 babies in japan and Savezilla destorying high prices, and the plot ends with Cam making up his mind and taking Lilly away cause she is not japanese, she is vietnamese and there is a BIG difference (Um, Cam, that's the wrong baby...)



    Jay-Manny: so Gloria & Manny visit Jay at work, where Jack let's Manny use a machine, which he crahes into a wall and injures himself. Jay fires Jack. Also today is Gloria & Jay's annviersary (she has one for everything) and Jay doens't remember what, but Manny does. Manny says he'll tell him if he rehires Jack, & Jay tells him he won't cause he hurt "his kid". MAnny is touched upon hearing Jay considers him his son and tells him it's their first kiss at the pier.



    Dunphys: Claire is at home with a cold and Phil takes the day off to do the stuff claire had to do. But he can't get where the chirping sound is comming from. He thinks it's from the smoke detectors so he starts destorying them all, but then he remembers it's the old ones Luke should have thrown away. Also Haley & Claire where at home cause both are sick, and Clarie insinuates that she should break up with Dylan, but she understand it's her saying she'll break up with her dad. Overall: Great episode. All plots (except Cam's) were great & Manny's had heart. 9/10.moreless
