After a wildly successful first season, and winning six Emmys, what does "Modern Family" do for an encore? Stay just as funny as ever.
Wednesday night's season premiere had the show continuing right where it left off in terms of delivering the laughs. Best of all (as usual) were Cam and Mitchell, with Mitchell determined to build a princess castle all on his own.
Cam immediately seizes on the opportunity to bring Jay in, who is reminded by Mitchell of a project they worked on in the past. "That was my Vietnam. And I was in Vietnam," Jay said.
Poor Gloria is watching Manny grow up and look to other females in his life, and she's not handling it well. Sofia Vergara and Rico Rodriguez are so good together, it's hard to believe that they're not really mother and son.
And once again, Phil tries to do something nice for Claire - by giving her a "time machine" trip with the kids in their soon-to-be-sold-station wagon - and it ends up blowing up in his face. As in the station wagon ends up going in reverse by itself down a hill. But I loved Phil's "creative" ad for selling an extremely damaged car ("They don't make 'em like this anymore... for legal reasons").
So, if the premiere was any indication, we could be looking at an Emmy repeat. What did you think of the show? Share your views on video or in the comments below.
