The first episode last night was hilarious...the second just ok.
"Jay, is this like the lobster? I get to pick mine for dinner? Because this one looks nice and tender."
Justice is best served with her accent on this one.
I need to go back for episode 2. Fell asleep. Long day.
First sign of shark-jumping material for the show did rear its head last night. Lilly aged about 2 years in 6 months. From no sound to full vocabulary. They are going to need to do a "Tiger Mom" episode with her this season.
"Buffalo Phil, it was worth the wait"
Liked the first, second was not as good but I thought it came together nicely at the end.
Agreed. it was very strange. I couldn't even figure out if it they were using the same child.
definitely a different kid. Also, you should notice how they changed the opening of the show for the new kid.
Very subtle, but while Alex getting splashed at the pool she was reading "Freakenomics."
Huh. I liked the 2nd better than the first. Different strokes....
I noticed a new name among the cast members. That's obviously Lily
I thought both episodes were about equally good. I liked Phil in the first one - listing eating pancakes amongst cowboy skills - and Cam in the second one. Loved the scene where Cam practiced the new baby announcement.
When Luke moved into the attic, I thought it would end with Phil redecorating the place for him and Haley and Alex then being jealous of his new room.
Damn storm last night wiped out about half of each episode (Direct TV).
Honestly though, her voice and accent is getting really annoying and that says tons considering how smokin hot she is. Could the writers, producers and directors get her to tone back her voice and accent. It's no longer funny.
loved claire. i have tons of sympathy for her.
"you guys should be sucking it right now!
cam was awesome, especially when he came back to give mitch the look of utter contempt after mitch made the sharing wisecrack.
loved gloria when she gave the "you'd be surprised what people can put up with" line. jay was properly terrified.
phil's always great. luke had a great line in the second ep, though i can't remember what it was.
Its a new season. Might want to check the battery in your humor detector.
Although I think he is a curmudgeon, I have to agree with him. The whole talking loudly because ear popping thing was easily the worst thing of the show and her accent thing is getting less funny as they are overusing it.
"grandpa said you lived in a closet for a while"
hilarious... entertained equally on them...
I loved that.
Haily:"I'm gonna move out and go to college."
Alex: "Those are two separate things"
I watched late into the night/morning on my DVR so I was the same way. Lilly aging like that was strange and confusing.
I'm not sure there's much they can do about the accent... They could turn it down from 11 though.
It was well done when the entire family watched her dad bust Manny and then go "ohhhh...."
That was great. I rewound and watched that a few times. I was equally terrified and aroused. That was done perfectly.
You may not realize this, but the whole show is based on emphasizing certain traits of the characters:
Cam: flamboyant gay
etc., etc. That is what TV does. Perhaps the Accent/Colombian stereotypes effect folks with handles such as 'Alberto' or 'Rafael Hernandez' more than the other than the others.
What a chunk of shit. As if an accent is a personality trait. And when was it mentioned that the other colombians stereotypes other than the accent? Why single out our names as if the criticism is not valid and bring in stuff that wasn't mentioned? Are you the one bringing in bias then?
Modern Family is a great show but dependeing on all those traits means they must do it rigthe because over emphasing stuff is what bad shows constantly do.
No. I am bringing up other over-the-top characters on the show and ask why does only Gloria's bother people. Haley, aside from not being blond being the 'stupid girl' or Cam, being flamboyantly gay doesn't bother people like Gloria does. Why doesn't that get old? They make fun of it in every episode.
Bullshit. Nobody said anything about how Gloria is or the colombian stereotypes or what she said. It was all about the joke about her bad accent. You brought it up and are changing the conversation and making it about Gloria as a characther and implying we have a problem with her whole charachter because of our name.
It's one thing if done for effect. It's another thing when it's done constantly as it has been over the past season and a friend of mine who is blonde green eyed of European ancestry had mentioned to me that the accent and tinniness of Gloria has gotten out of hand. After she mentioned it I checked it out to see if it really was as bad or if she was exaggerating and I really could not watch the show. It has nothing to do with my ancestry. It has all to do with the character being annoying regardless of ethnicity. Who wants to hear a beautiful woman running around screeching like that. I certainly don't.
