Another sweet family moment ended this episode. That is an area Modern Family excels at (mixing those life lessons into the comedy.) The episode was good for what it was, but the show just doesn't have that "oomph" so to speak. It's missing something. Maybe a crazy neighbor?
Right now all the characters have the same voice. It seems like they all make similar jokes; there's no real distinction among them.
It is still early, the show might progress, but it really is just okay right now. Just not that good yet, and certainly far from a great series right now.
