One third of "Open House of Horrors" was a lot of fun -- and, of course, it was the parts that featured Phil and Claire. Ty Burell and Julie Bowen have mastered Modern Family's physical comedy, and when they weren't doing the same shtick where Phil accidentally gives Claire a backhanded compliment (we get it, show) they were on fire.
In the season premiere, "Cazsh Dummy Spillionaires", the show came back with its particularly well-seasoned blend of fast paced pop culture references, crazy friend antics and some sweet moments (that were quickly soured), which is what this show does best. We'd love it if the gang had spent a bit more time together, instead of scattered into little duos, but we'll take what we can get. If you imagine this our review of each character's finest moment, set to the dulcet tunes of "Ebony and Ivory" as sung by Sinbrad, it will likely increase your enjoyment immensely.
The countdown to the Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj deathmatch begins in January.
Considering NBC just hosted a conference call with Lauren Graham and Ray Romano, I figured "I'll Be Right Here," would have a lot more of Sarah and Hank. While I'm slightly disappointed that we have to keep waiting for more on that front, I'll give the writers credit for sticking in an episode where Mark was really likable (maybe he always is, I just have fun ragging on him) in order to make the love triangle all the more juicer. I will ask all of your Mark supporters out there: Did you roll your eyes maybe a little bit when he said he didn't have cable? What's next, he doesn't have a microwave?
The fact that Jess had an inroad with models might have been the reason she was brought into the apartment with the guys in the first place, but seeing her interact with them just makes us sad. And not even in a funny sad sort of way. That said, "Models" still managed to be a mostly entertaining episode -- surprisingly enough -- and there was just the right amount of Schmidt.
Lots of episode orders today, so let's get to it.
Spend some time getting to know one of TV's most underrated comedy ensembles.
This season hasn't been the best for new comedies, but Go On stands out as one that is actually funny and enjoyable. Most of this is due to Matthew Perry, who's universally beloved by audiences because... well, he was Chandler. Now he's bringing all of that comedy to Ryan King, a widowed sports radio host forced to attend group therapy with some equally entertaining weirdos. In a recent media call he discussed what's ahead for Go On and reminisced a little about the classic Friends. Here are some of the highlights.
It looks like November 3 will be the night that comedy nerds everywhere explode with excitement.
