I don't recall any episode ending like this one did last night. Usually any episode that has an argument or disagreement is settled by the end and everyone walks away happy, but that was kinda sad with the scene between Jay and Mitchell. Then to have it go unresolved was different for this show.
Of course I know it will come around and Jay will be the "proud papa" at the wedding, but still it was kinda sad. I did get a kick out of Stella following Gloria around the house at the end and just rolling over so she would scratch her belly.
I'd been losing interest this season, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Halloween episode and the following one (about the TV journalist filming a segment on Cam). I laughed out loud a couple of times during each one, which is rare for me with any show.
I'll agree on the mediocre remark. The show has devolved into too much absurd farce. I like quirky and funny better than some silly thing where 17 improbable steps and misunderstandings are taking place simultaneously.
I am hoping Alex will start wearing revealing clothing.

You might want to avoid making statements like that out loud for a couple of years.
I always feel weird thinking what I do because of her age, but I'll be damned if she isn't becoming quite large up top.
Honestly, I think they started putting Sarah Hyland in low cut revealing outfits just to try and take attention away from Ariel's growth.
She's playing a nerdy character. She's not going to wear outfits even as a teenager on the show that will reveal anything. At some point in the next few seasons they will do the inevitable "ugly duckling" episode where she wears more modern clothing for kids her age to get attention from boys etc. Both of those girls on the show have been through a lot in their private life.
The show overall is still good enough for network tv. There's only so many gay jokes, old man with hot wife, clumsy husband etc etc in the pipeline. Eventually you run out of ways to make it clever.
Wow! Where did that come from? Modern family has been in such a down spiral for some time that I'm in a little bit of a shock as to how good last night's episode was. Tight plotting, jokes hitting on all cylinders coupled with the quick cuts going from one scene to the other made it one for the ages
As concepts go this week was very good and actually funny too!
But the rapid zooms in and out of the screens were really annoying and eyeball-uncomfortable.
I thought it was very clever and funny. The pans didn't bother me.
I've had a Macbook for over a year, and didn't know you could do some of the things I saw, like multiple simultaneous FaceTime calls. Can other callers really see/hear each other like they showed? Also, she (or whoever actually did it) seemed to go back down to the task bar to switch between apps, but I prefer to do Command-Tab w/ my left hand. I inherited that habit from years of Alt-Tab on Windows machines.

It's less specific and would interfere with the images they were showing on the screen.
Plus, for everyone who doesn't know how it's done it would appear as magic. Just as many other keyboard commands do.
I also liked it, even if it did seem a bit hectic for me. My kids loved it though, it's the first time in forever they actually watched a TV program without also playing on their phone, doing homework, etc. My guess is it had enough going on to hold their full attention, very rare indeed.
