Modern Family – Season 2 – ***

what a joy

The characters that made season 1 such a joy are even funnier this time around. The stories all evolve around misunderstandings, which becomes very predictable and often even boring, but in general, this is great fun.

Gay sporty queen Cameron Tucker (Eric Stonestreet) is still a riot. But less of a surprise. He becomes more and more stereotypical, which doesn’t promise anything good for the future seasons. His partner Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Ferguson) on the other hand becomes more likable.

Gloria Delgado (Sofia Vergara) remains EXCELLENT as the Columbian wife, who’s so stereotypical that it becomes funny again. Her much older husband Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill) gets more grumpy and mellow by the episode, but doesn’t bore anymore. Their ‘son’ Manny Delgado (Rico Rodriguez) remains a weird uninteresting and unfunny character.

The biggest laughs come from the family Dunphy though. Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) totally pulls the silly card and gets away with it fine. His wife Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) looks stunning in every single scene and gets some really funny scenes. Their daughters still remain in the background, which is okay for prom queen Haley Dunphy (Sarah Hyland) but sad for sarcastic nerd Alex Dunphy (Ariel Winter). However, the absolute star of this season is Luke Dunphy (Nolan Gould), whose silliness comes combined with some really clever moments as well. This character rocks and the young actor should get all the recognition for it!

Excited about season 3
