Modern Family [Super] Mini Recap – Episode 1: Pilot

modern-family_101-lawn-chairI don’t know how this show managed to exceed my very high expectations, but it did. Loved. It. So. Much! Ed O’Neil is surprisingly endearing and somehow — inexplicably! — I found myself really caring about these characters. To sum it up, I am sold.

“You should know that I’m not here to spit in your face — I’m here to blow at your back.”

Top Three Moments!

    * Alex [little sister], on how amazing it would be if Haley [older sister] were to become pregnant:

    “First of all, it would be really cool to see Haley that fat. And how awesome would it be, to have a fake little brother who was really my nephew?”

    * Cameron presents Lily, their recently adopted daughter, to Mitchell’s family, by way of … wait for it … The Lion King’s “Circle of Life”!!


    * Jay [Ed O’Neil], on the adorable Lily:

    “Let me see the little potsticker.”

    • I wanna talk about how the actress who play’s Alex has such an extensive imdb page already and how one of those credits include playing “little Tori” on So Notorious or So NoTORIous or whatever they spelled it like

    • I agree. Not only do I miss Modern Family if I watch Glee but I also miss Cougar Town (which I discovered today is hella funny). I think it’s time I invest in DVR, or Tivo, or whatever people use to watch all their shows whenever they want.

  1. I watched it, cause you all said too watch it, and I really liked it. You rarily steer me wrong! And that’s why I have special feelings for this site. :)

    Anyway I thought it was so good, super cute and very funny. “You be the wind in his back, not the spit in his face” I love that, I may need to facebook quote it.

    P.s. I nominate Sofia Vergara as the hot girl of the week award. Her breast are amazing! Seriously.
