Tonight’s all new “Modern Family” is even more exciting than usual because there hasn’t been a new episode since October 23rd. The good news is we had copious amounts of the Dunphy family in syndication to bride this gap, but even that reserve has been running dry recently. Here’s the ABC synopsis for tonight’s show.
The family attends the annual school fair and Phil has a big 20th wedding anniversary surprise planned for Claire at the fairgrounds, but unfortunately, she simultaneously has a surprise for him back at home.
No show does miscommunication better than “Modern Family”. Throwing all of the characters into a fair should produce some great moments. According to the promo for the episode Manny enlists in a cake baking contests. No doubt Jay will come around to realize Manny’s competition is a real exercise. We also get a sneak peak at Phil’s surprise, and it seems to be musical. Phil singing means Mitchell can roll his eyes towards the camera.
“Modern Family” is head and shoulders above other TV comedies. The show, unlike the normal trajectory, seems to be getting better with age. The characters are so well defined and real that a simple trip to the fair is must see television. They don’t need to visit an exotic location for sweeps week. Could a Dunphy trip to Costco be next? That’s a bounty of product placement right there.
