All In the Family
Claire changes her tune when she sees the baby. Phil wonders if Lily is going to be a hard name for her to say. I totally missed that line the first time I watched this because I was still laughing at The Lion King stuff. Wrong, but right. Jay announces that he knows he said that a baby was a bad idea, but he's a screw up of a father, who continues to mess up, and he's actually happy for them. He ends with, "I'm not here to spit in your face, I'm here to blow at your back." That sounds dirty, but he says it is supposed to sound better in Spanish, and Gloria obligingly translates. Then everyone passes the baby around and takes pictures of her, as Jay voiceovers some sentimental stuff about love, that we learn is Manny's lame poem to Brenda. Nice one, show.
I'm hooked, I think the appeal is that it's a single-camera show, without a laugh track and while many of the tropes are pretty standard sitcom fare, when they are blended together, it is somehow more appealing. Not sure I'd want to sit through an entire show about Gloria, Jay and Manny, but in bits and pieces, paired with the other segments of this family, it works. Though I do think that the funniest parts happened when the entire family was together, so I'm hoping for lots of big group outings in the future. Like weekly, if possible.
