Another favourite has made it back for a brand-new season and it was a bit underwhelming. Perhaps it has come to that point where the viewers are more attached to the characters than to the jokes, but, in all honesty, I can’t remember the last time Modern Family made me laugh to death. Considering there is such a big cast, it’s always very repetitive and at times, not even Phil’s jokes can save the day.
This episode brought good things to some of the Pritchett’s but others were not so lucky. Cam and Mitchell are still living the honeymoon period. At least Cam is, but with his very loud ways he is making sure him and Mitchell re-live the romance again, and again. Mitchell hates it.. until he doesn’t, and they agree and make up. (Always the same with these two).
Claire and Phil are having the time of their lives with their children this summer. All of them except for Alex, who went away with class and now is stuck back at home after hating camping. After a long time of peace, the house loses its balance and harmony again. Poor Alex she always gets the short end of the stick, and has to fix her family’s problems. She might not bring balance, but she is the personification of common sense. She basically saves her family episode after episode from being stupid…
Gloria has a go at Jay because of his appearance. She thinks he should make more of an effort, and of course, Jay overreacts. Well Jay, after 6 seasons you should know that a latina woman will always over do it!
So Gloria goes and makes herself ugly for a day, just to prove the freakin’ point.
Again, a cycle that repeats itself every episode. I don’t mind it, I just wish there were more jokes – like in the good old days..
Bring it on!
