What I’m Watching: Modern Family

Modern Family: Season 7, Episode 15 “I Don’t Know How She Does It” (C+)

It seems that this plotline of Phil being a househusband isn’t going away anytime soon. This episode was all about obliviousness, with every single character managing not to notice a single thing that was going on around them. Phil expecting a surprise party when he found the house dark upon entering it didn’t fare too well for him, and trying to juggle all the errands in the middle of his open house was a poor plan. Claire using her eager assistant to do everything was never going to end well, and of course leave it to this show to lead up to a dramatic finish with Phil moving past it and helping Claire keep it together instead of giving her a hard time about living a lie. Speaking of lying, Jay and Gloria weren’t being too honest with each other, and they managed to fall asleep while the equally negligent duo of Manny and Luke took a sleeping Joe for a ride without noticing that he was in the backseat. Cameron and Mitchell ended up at quite the punishment table at the wedding, and it seems their dance moves were what got them into trouble with the daughter that they keep dragging to gay weddings. It might be helpful if people talked about things rather than always assuming the worst and ostracizing Cameron and Mitchell for presumed offenses they weren’t even aware of, but Pepper and Ronaldo were far too preoccupied with the devastating state of affairs that was the gay wedding industry.
