Modern Family season finale recap: Hip Hip Hip Hooray!

Modern

While I wouldn’t call tonight’s season finale (sniff, sniff) the funniest or best episode of the season, I would say that it did its job. It wrapped up the season nicely by showcasing the wit and wisdom of all the various family members, and it showed us (ever so briefly) some of the highlights from season 2. Tonight’s episode centered on Jay’s birthday – a fitting way to say goodbye, I would argue, as his character seemed to do the most growing this season (come on, he let Manny keep the puppy).

Modern Family recap: The Graduate

Modern Family Recap

Tonight’s episode, titled “See You Next Fall” – get it? – established why this cast is one of the best comedy ensembles on television. Not only can they deliver an acerbic quip that leaves us in stitches or a tender moment that almost makes us shed a tear, but tonight they demonstrated that they are also physical-comedy geniuses.

Modern Family recap: Trading Places

Modern

Let me start off by saying that I really related to tonight’s episode of Modern Family. No, not the learning-lessons and walking-a-mile-in-another-person’s-shoes message, but Cam dying on the couch. I too have whatever disease he had – but that certainly didn’t stop me from thoroughly enjoying our favorite family. In fact, for roughly 22 minutes I forgot about my violent sneezing and runny nose (kinda). Thank you to the wonderful Fred Savage for directing this great episode. Yup, that Fred Savage from The Wonder Years directed tonight’s episode!

Modern Family recap: The Godfather

Modern Family

Finally, after popular demand, an episode starring…Lily! Cam and Mitchell decided to assess who would be the best family members to raise Lily if “God forbid, something happened to them.” This theme could have easily been played as overly sentimental and serious, but instead it turned out to be one of the funniest episodes of the season (in my humble opinion). The opening scene at the Dunphy house when Cam and Mitchell were watching to see if Lily would do well there was insane. Between the yelling, the knife juggling, the grease fire, and Alex being trapped in the garage – it was hilar!

Modern Family recap: Can't Get No Satisfaction

Modern Family

We love it when Phil messes up. We just can’t get enough. And tonight’s screwup was one for the books. When Claire said, “You heard your father—he’s not just selling houses, he’s selling us,” she had no idea how true that would be. In an attempt to drum up real estate business, Phil created a banner ad with his family’s photo and the logo “I can’t be satisfied until you’re satisfied.” What that has to do with buying and selling houses is lost on me, but that’s why we love Phil. He then had the banner shrink-wrapped onto the family minivan (classy! as Luke so aptly put it).

Modern Family recap: Your Friends and Neighbors

Modern Family

Welcome back, my Modern Family friends! It’s been a long, lonely two weeks of reruns, and I was glad to have my Family back tonight. While I can’t say it was the best episode yet, it was definitely strong, and in addition to having some really funny one-off lines and bits, it brought us two fantastic cameos. First we welcomed back Nathan Lane’s feisty Pepper – always great, and never quite enough. And second, we were introduced to Philip Baker Hall’s Walt Kleezak, who played Phil and Claire’s scary neighbor who befriends the increasingly clueless Luke.
