Still a winner! :up
Still a winner! :up
Between "Modern Family," "Cougar Town," and "Eastwick," I laugh and/or giggle for two solid hours on Wednesday nights!
I still like it! It's the only sitcom I watch.
I loved the whole 'bra' issue. That was hilarious.
I'm really trying to stick with this one - everyone seems to like it so much. I'll give it another week. I keep thinking I'm just missing something. :mmm
I really like this show, I was turned off at first because I thought it was going to be all about a desperate 40something trying to get her hooks into a man... any man. It's turned out to be very funny. I love everyone in the show except Courney Cox... it's like she's playing Monica Geller 18 years later. Her comedic timing seems to be a little slow too. My feelings about this show are a lot like I felt about Will and Grace, the 'supporting players' are the meat of the show and the best, most interesting part.
Well, I guess even Monica had go grow into middle age eventually. Since I didn't watch Friends, but I did watch 'Dirt' and this, I really appreciate her adult acting.
It is appalling (and I'm not a prude).Quote:

I put CT in that same category, except that I don't know of any CC scandals, and I don't recall that show's theme song (lucky me). Also, I don't think that CC is a very good actor, especially not a good comedic actor.
I don't get the hype on this show either. I'm also not a prude, but this show is really, really shallow. Who is her best friend/next door neighbor - used to be on Drew Carey. I've always thought she was beautiful, but she's had some work done (looks a little like Pricsilla Pressley now). But beyond the looks, I really can't warm up to the characters. Modern Family, on the other hand, is VERY witty. Great writing and acting on that show! jmo, of course.
I am totally onboard with everyone thinking Hank is sucky, but I do not understand why they are now advertising Modern Family as "best new comedy." I like that show, but Cougar Town and The Middle are better.
Because people tend to treat Modern Family as if it's some sort of high brow, cerebreal type of comedy show.Quote:
