There’s the ‘Modern Family’ I know and love. This was a fantastic ensemble piece, and every storyline had a nice beginning and a nice ending. Nobody stood out, maybe Nolan Gould. I think that it wasn’t laugh out loud funny (until that ocean scene), but it was still the best of the first three episodes.

How long has Haley been a senior? i thought she was one last year…… (and the year before that…)September 29, 2011 at 5:19 am #224221
“Snorkles!” That twist at the end of the cam/mitch storyline felt very fresh, totally wasn’t expecting that. And Ferguson was quite great here. But it seemed like he spitted a whole LOT when he was walking out the room. like actual strings saliva. ew.
Bowen was on fire again. “Super Dunphy” “Little Spongebob tie” “Law & Order Special Parking Unit” hahaSeptember 29, 2011 at 9:22 am #224222
Yikes, this episode was a mess. And on a side note, I tried getting my mom into this show and I think these first episodes this season has turned her off, which is a shame b/c I think she would’ve loved this show esp in its early days. But she does loves The Middle b/c she was a huge fan of Everybody Loves Raymond.September 29, 2011 at 12:22 pm #224223
Yet another “not so great” episode.
I wish Nolan Gould would just grow up already so they can nominate him for an Emmy….the kid’s delivery is just perfect and he’s completely stolen Rico Rodriguez’s thunder. Or maybe he’ll be the next Keshia Knight Pulliam, I don’t know…but I sure as hell hope so.
I did think that Ferguson did more here than on his previous submissions. The crying and screaming at the boss’s house was perfect.September 29, 2011 at 12:23 pm #224224This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.September 29, 2011 at 12:25 pm #224225

I was also thinking about this when they mentioned it, specially given how much Lilly “has grown”, it means that a lot of time has passed since the last time we saw a school storyline from Hailey. It must be like a year and a half since last season considering Lilly, so exactly where was Hailey in school back then?September 30, 2011 at 3:40 pm #224226
Enjoyed the episode because it’s reminiscent of the first season with the narration etc. Ty Burrell keeps on rocking it and reminds me how much he deserved that Emmy. And I like that Jesse Tyler Ferguson is getting the proper amount of credit that he actually deserves.September 30, 2011 at 3:40 pm #224227

Had Vergara had a bit more screentime in this episode, it could have been a great tape for her. As it is, her scenes were golden.October 1, 2011 at 12:19 pm #224229
“Phil on Wire”
MVP: Eric Stonestreet
This farcical outing proceeds at a breakneck pace. Jay’s love of the dog enrages Gloria, who reaches new lows (and allows Vergara a couple great scenes). Clare, Alex, and Haley get into trouble at school, leading to another great performance from Bowen. And then there’s Cam and Mitch. There plotline couldn’t be more stereotypical, but it is also hugely funny, leading up to the ridiculous final scene. Ferguson and Stonestreet are simply on fire. I could have done without Phil tightrope walking or the cheesy sentiment it induced at the end, but it was given appropriately short shrift.
Season Three Summary:
3-1.) “Dude Ranch”: B+; MVP: Bowen
3-2.) “When Good Kids Go Bad”: A-; MVP: Ferguson
3-3.) “Phil on Wire”: A-; MVP: StonestreetOctober 1, 2011 at 12:34 pm #224230
I’ve seen the first two episodes and I thought they were okay, the second one better. Now, I’m the biggest Modern Family fan around here, and its Emmy sweep was more than deserving. But if the first two episodes are a sign of what’s to come this season, I’ll pray for some other show to start winning awards and accolades. The writers seriously need to delve much more into the characters, and not just rely on the same old been there done that plots and jokes. And I’m starting to get annoyed by Gloria’s accent and the jokes arc around it. And would I be the only one who thinks Lily is less than cute now that she’s all grown up?October 2, 2011 at 1:27 pm #224231
I didn’t really like the first episode. I didn’t think many of the jokes worked, and everyone seemed kind of flat. Except Nolan Gould, who pretty much stole the episode for me.
The second episode was better. Really liked that all the storylines were tied together at the end. Loved Julie Bowen in this episode.
This last episode “Phil on Wire”….I kind of liked it. Really loved Cam and Mitchell’s scene at the beach. Ferguson and Stonestreet were great in this. I also liked Bowen’s scene of Claire going crazy in front of that guard at the school.October 2, 2011 at 1:33 pm #224232
The first episode was terrible, as often when comedy shows do vacation episodes. None of it worked, except for Nolan Gould and, somewhat, Ty Burell. I mean, Gloria’s whole thing that episode was that she couldn’t hear… that’s just not enough.
The second episode was good, just what I expect from Modern Family. Bowen was good, but this was the typical MF episode where nobody stands out and everybody’s funny.
The third episode wasn’t as good, except for Vergara, who was just awesome. The scene where she tries to get the dog to eat Jay’s shoes made me laugh more than anything else in this beginning of the season.
