I liked the 2nd to last episode built around Lilly's sarcastic manner. Tbh though that has a lot to do with Cam and Mitchell. I love nearly every scene they have together just because of the rapid fire way they play off of each other and play up the gay steroptype but in a humorous way and not in a way that comes off cheap. Episodes as a whole haven't been as strong since the beginning of the season.

Bit in that same episode where Jay talks about Manny loving girls but not being able to get them was stellar though. The way Manny's expression changed from happy to 'are you kidding me?' made me chuckle. I love the way those two in particular interact ever since he's gradually grown up. An overlooked pairing.

Cam/Mitch are by far the best part of the show right now. They kinda always were but the gap is much bigger now. Jay/Manny moments seem to getting less frequent. I hate to say it but Phil's really got stale. First half of this season felt like it was getting back to it's best for a while but since the xmas break ..... I dunno. It just hasn't felt like the same show or the same writers. Did something change to the writing crew? It just feels off like they've reached the point where they're totally out of ideas and they're digging real deep to come up with content.

I'm not one to really follow up with a change in writers. I think it might just be a simple case of it being the 4th season and them exhausting a lot of plot points and issues they can create an episode out of. They've focused on the adults, the children, Jay and how he interacts with Claire and Mitchell, they've covered the major issues surrounding Cam and Mitchell's relationship. I hope they realise the writing is on the wall because they still have funny moments but its becoming clear they either need a break and a chance to think up new ideas or just accept the show is reaching its course where it'll become a parody of itself before too long.

Agree with you on Phil. Like all good characters if you present him well he's a key asset but if you get lazy he'll suffer and drag the show down. Godfather parody really didn't do much for me and felt like a poor way to poke fun at Phil being uncharacteristically 'evil'. Seems the funnier Phil moments are now the more subtle and in the background jokes instead of the main plot he's involved in. Stuff like him sitting on a bench with advertising and partially blocking the writing to reveal 'Not a Man' whilst worrying over a vasectomy was clever and funny, as was the episode where Cam unwittingly places him on a date with Matthew Broderick.

I kind of appreciate Manny and Jay scenes being less frequent. If anything bar Cam and Mitchell the more something gets focused on lately the less it remains consistent. The episode where Hayley and Alex were babysitting Luke and freaking out about him making out with a girl was among the weaker ones imo. Felt really forced and a lazy way for them to do a cliche child storyline in a sitcom.

PARKS continues to shine though. One of the more quotable episodes again this week. Jean Ralphio story had me in stitches!

I've been sporadic with this season of Modern Family so I'm not sure I could shed much light on how well Phil's character has been as of late. It worked for me this week however. Nothing hilarious, but general Phil. Which works. Cam & Mitchell of course were the quality. They always are and seemingly always will be. Plus, anytime I get Pepper on an episode it's a personal favorite. That kind of praise should make certain I never get a Pepper talk.

been watching House of Cards. the first seven episodes were brilliant if you're into political dramas. it's a less gritty version of BOSS which i think is the most underrated show on television. the eighth episode felt very flat to me though. hopefully the rest of the season picks up.

Walking Dead is a lot like Lost, in that all the women are extremely annoying. Carol reminds me of Michael from Lost, always whining about her kid and not actually doing shit, Andrea always has a stupid look on her face, and Lori is actually better than both of them but still useless. I think the only woman I like is Maggie, and that's because she's hot. And I hate children in TV Drama's, they almost always cause problems, just like the stupid little girl Sofia and now Carl is a little shit too. Up to ep. 10 of season 2.

EDIT: FUCK CARL. FUCK HIM for what he did. I hope this fucker dies at this season's finale.

Sopranos Logic:

Have an intelligent discussion among a family on the often over-exaggerated representation of Italian-Americans in the media and today's society.

Follow it up with a lengthy scene involving the most stereotypical character in the entire show (Pauly)

Also, this show is super-froot so far.
