    I found this episode to be the best one yet. Burrell proved why he deserved the Emmy this year. And Ferguson was good once again. I agree that Nolan Gould is HILARIOUS in this series, and deserves an Emmy nomination. I am beginning to think that the Supporting Actor in a Comedy Emmy will go to only MF men until all of them have won an Emmy. Stonestreet and Burrell have won, and I think Ferguson is next.

    Anyway, still a great episode, and MUCH better than the previous two.

    Grade for “Phil on Wire”: A-  MVP: Ferguson

    Season 3 Grades:

    1.”Dude Ranch”: C+   MVP: Bowen

    2.”When Good Kids Go Bad”: A-   MVP: Stonestreet

    3.”Phil on Wire”: A-   MVP: Ferguson

    How long has Haley been a senior? i thought she was one last year…… (and the year before that…)

    She says she’s 15 in the pilot, so she’s likely a senior this season.

     

    The third episode was a tad bit uneven, but I still liked it quite a bit.

    I also think Jesse Tyler Ferguson will be the one to beat at the 2012 Emmys.  Three episodes in, he’s already got 2 strong potential submission tapes.

     

    I think Modern Family will be the next Golden Girls with all of the main cast winning Emmys in categories that they competed in against each other.

     

    Mind you, I incorrectly predicted a similar winning streak for Desparate Housewives when it premiered, however with two comedy series wins already in the bag (versus DHW’s 0), I might not be wrong about Modern Family.

    Honestly, I tought that I’ll would never say it but Ferguson can really win an Emmy next year, unbelievable!

    Because, in my mind, Ferguson’s acting and character will never enough to win and the fact that Stonestreet nailed against him not help much, but with the last two episodes I believe that Ed O’Neill will be the last of the main cast to win an Emmy – and please Vergara you have to win next year

    Only All in the Family, The Golden Girls and Will & Grace had won an Emmy for each actor from main cast, right ? I remember that for Everybody Loves Raymond just Peter Boyle don’t won and is still unbelievable that Jerry and Jason never won for Seinfeld lol

    The thing is the kids are considered part of the main cast as well, so I don’t know if they will still get the distinction. Anyway, I was hoping the Pritchetts would take it together, but I too think Ferguson is in the lead right now. His character his becoming less of the straight man (oh, the irony) of the couple.

     

    Anyway also, the next episode is called “Door to Door”. Now if I count correctly this episode will feature 5 seperate storylines. This will be interesting. When there are a lot of storylines it is either overstuffed and there isn’t enough time for each storyline or it can be in perfect unison.

     

    Episode Description:

    Jay is determined to help Manny sell wrapping paper for a school fundraiser. Meanwhile, Claire petitions the city for a stop sign to be installed at a high-traffic intersection. Also, Mitchell tries to prove a point with Cameron, and neither one of them will back down and Phil and Luke attempt to create a viral video sensation. Finally, Gloria is desperate to find Stella after losing her.

    Five storylines?  Hmm.  I like when there’s just three, so each one gets enough time to breathe.  I liked Phil on Wire, but even that felt a little crowded to me in terms of what was happening.  I would have saved the Claire/Alex/Hailey story for another episode, thrown Claire in as a sounding board for Mitchell with Cam’s crazy, and given Claire and Hailey a minor role in Phil and Luke’s storyline.  Then used the Dunphey women story in an episode where either the guys were around to react to what was happening more or maybe Mitchell was questioning Claire’s decisions.  But like I said, I liked it.  The Gloria/Jay story could have used more development, though.

    I think [i]Modern Family[/i] will be the next [i]Golden Girls[/i] with all of the main cast winning Emmys in categories that they competed in against each other.

    This isn’t completely accurate. While you’re right that all four lead actresses won Emmys for their roles, Estelle Getty submitted and won in the Supporting category, while Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, and Betty White all won in the Lead category.

    True, however, it is still pretty impressive that three of them were able to win in the same category, versus Will & Grace and All in the Family that could theoretically win all of their categories in a single year.

     

    On another note… correct me if I’m wrong, but I think if either Jesse Tyler Ferguson or Ed O’Neill wins the Best Supporting Comedy Actor for Modern Family, they will break the record they are currently tied with M*A*S*H, Taxi, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show for the most different actors winning in that category for the same show.

    Chris Colfer and Oliver Platt I really doubt it, Garret could be a surprise but another nomination for NPH just for final season (imo), for now I’ll go with 4 MF + Jon Cryer + Nick Offerman.

    The new comedies from broadcast has no options for supporting, right ?

    and for cable we have Veep and Enlightened, Luke Wilson ? maybe!

    Impressive indeed!

    I’m definitely thinking Tony Hale has a good chance for Veep!

    “Phil on Wire” was to good Modern Family episodes that “When Good Kids Go Bad” was to great ones — it is a perfect example of an installment that I liked but didn’t love. There were some funny moments, like Luke on a sugar high, Cameron on a starvation rage, and Claire in bracelets, that I enjoyed. But there were also wasted opportunities, particularly in the Jay/Gloria subplot this week. Jay coddles the dog, Gloria gets jealous, Jay puts the dog outside. That was the extent to which that story stretched. Vergara and O’Neill, both who I love on this show and really manage to sell their relationship, were not given good material this time around. Manny inspecting all of his food to make sure it wasn’t a doggy treat (“those cupcakes did a number on me”) was clever, but aside from the closing shot, didn’t really pay off.

    Cam and Mitchell took a break from talking about adoption and instead jumped head-first into juice fast together (which Luke hilariously mishears as “Jew’s fast”). We wait all episode for Cam to finally lose his cool, and instead, its Mitchell who ends up jumping into the ocean to save an unseen seal. Count me as one of those prognosticators who was surprised by Ferguson’s Emmy nod for the first season; watching him shout “Snorkels! Snorkels!” into the open air, though, really convinced me that he’s always deserved it.

    The Dunphies are almost always the best part of the show, material-wise. I’m not sure that I buy the connection between Phil’s tight-rope and Claire “balancing” her two daughters, but it was worth a shot. Unlike “Good Kids Go Bad” last week, “Phil on Wire” lacked a strong through-line that connected all of the three subplots together. That being said, it was still a good episode.

    Grade for “Phil on Wire” : B
