Modern Family 3×17 — “Leap Day”: This episode had its moments. Luke is not one of my favorite characters, but he had some great scenes tonight. I loved how he spilled the fake blood, but decided to just “go with it” anyway and pretend he had a cut finger. Haley and Alex’s reactions were hilarious, especially Haley screaming to call 911 and asking where to put the tourniquet. Luke’s other fantastic moment was when Gloria screamed at the boat captain, “Nobody calls him ‘Grandpa’!” and Luke piped up, “I do.” Ha!
Those were the parts that really stood out for me. I wasn’t exactly fond of the “devil’s trifecta” storyline of Claire and the girls menstruating at the same time, but whatever. And Cam’s birthday party was boring too — but it did lead to a laugh-out-loud moment when Mitchell said, “There’s the man I’ve loved since you were 8″ or whatever and we see a mom steering her young son away from them.
All in all, it was decent, but not something I’d feel compelled to watch again.
