Modern Family (season 7)
Although I finished this season some weeks ago, I did not notice there were no more episodes. The fact of every episode having a different story, with minimal umbrella story (the one that glues episodes together), and the lack of a season finale are the reasons for missing it.
In any case, Modern Family continues as good as it was. I still think that Alex Dumphy deserves an episode meeting Sheldon at Caltech (even being two different producers, why not?) and I think Manny, like above, is deserving a chance with a girl. Not necessarily a hot blonde, but I feel for him. Probably because I think I deserve this chance too…
Anne Hathaway @ The Intern
Not much to say about the movie. A romantic comedy, and no, the romance was not between Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway. It is a fund movie to watch. a few slow scenes, but mostly enjoyable to watch.
Also was interesting to see Adam DeVine out of Modern Family, and Andrew Rannells out of Girls. And those who know me, know that the fact of having Anne Hathaway around made me stick. Yes, she is very cute.
Sofia Vergara @ Modern Family
Yeah, right. What other could I post here from the last Modern Family season? It is not every day we get Sofia Vergara in the pool. Other than that, the series continues with some fun episodes and some other more boring. Nothing really new. The “big story” (spoilers ahead) is quite small and slow. Alex gets to college (or out of college? well… to Caltech. I just hope she meets The Big Bang Theory next season). Haley likes Andy. And not much more.
Sarah Hyland as Haley Dunphy
And the fifth season of Modern Family finished. And I should tell that the episodes that I liked most are the last ones. Not really the last (spoilers: on the wedding) but some previous. Also, I love how Lily can interfere and comment her dads. After a talk with a friend I knew most people dislike her character. I must say I like it a lot.
Of course, this is not a movie, so I can’t talk much on the story… as they are 25 stories, the big view, and each one of the 24 episodes. Some are better than other, of course, but in the overall, this series is fun to watch.
Just in time for Season 5 that started a couple days ago. This season did not bring anything really new. I was expecting the Gloria being pregnant would make the series go in some other direction, but it did not happen. In fact, it were few the episodes related to that fact. Nevertheless, there are some good jokes, and it seems the stupid jokes that were very usual in the first seasons are mostly lost. Expecting the next season.
Alex dating a to-be-gay.
One more season and I continue seeing myself in Manuel Delgado, namely on his relation with girls. Anyway, this season is very similar to the previous ones in terms of story and jokes. No big differences on the stories’ lines. Now that we have Gloria Delgado pregnant things might change.
Modern Family – Mother’s Day
Modern Family second season is a little better than the first season, but not much different. What I miss in this series is continuity. Not requesting a complex story that continues every episode, like Smash, or Game of Thrones, but a global story that ties episodes together (like Castle, Nikita or the good old House). In this season there are some episodes with a sequence (regarding Manny’s dog), some episodes that refer to previous ones (like Valentines day, or the last from the season, that visits a set of previous episodes).
But, the thing I like most is Glória (Sofia Vergara) and the sound similarities: Saxophone vs Sexy Phone, Baby Cheeses vs Baby Jesus. Just great.
Julie Bowen @ Modern Family
Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen are two good MILF reasons to watch this series. I confess I started watching it because a friend said it is very good. In fact, I can’t say it is that good (at least for first season). Somehow, I feel some actors to act a little strange. Also, the mockumentary format is not a thing I appreciate.
Nevertheless, there are funny episodes, and good jokes. I think the character I like most is Manny Delgado. Not only because he has my name (swapped), but also because he has the same problem as I have with girls. How I understand you, Manny…
This is the usual post for the first episode for a new series I decide to watch. Well, still not sure I will watch it all, the first episode is not that great… mostly it introduces us the characters and their relationships.
Of course that a friend suggested to watch this series… you know, Sofia Vergara… et al. Let’s see how good this gets.
