Modern Family Challenge: Part Two / Disc Two

And we're back. Next disc. Another episode I had seen during the original run of the first season. "En Garde" is the episode where Manny fences versus a girl. I am beginning to believe it was just rotten luck that every thing I had seen from this show were the worst moments. Oh man, you mean not only is Manny fencing a girl, but she's an orphan and her friends are all in wheelchairs. The height of comedy.

But then we get to their biggest coup, Ed Norton guest stars. Not only that, but he plays the bassist for Spandau Ballet. In an episode that could have been another bad "misunderstanding" where Claire can't get gifts for her husband, it ends up being played well. She tries but can't. He admits she can't. That's it. Nothing gets too over the top. Plus, Elizabeth Banks as an adult baby. Kudos.

Then we come to Fizbo and Undeck the halls. A little more outlandish, but still pretty funny. At this point, I will watch future episodes in future seasons, but most likely I will rent the DVDs.

Did you enjoy it?

Would you see it in theaters again?
Again? Is this show in theaters?

Would you buy it?

Would you rent it?
How do you think I'm watching all these episodes?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
Reruns. Maybe.
