"Yes, I Want a Whisker Basket." The Best Moments from "Up All Night," "Suburgatory," "Modern Family," and "Happy Endings"
Suburgatory Grade: B-. "Suburgatory" has found it's groove, and unfortunately, that groove isn't all that groovy. It's a decent show, but it's fairly conservative creatively, more like an 8:30 show between "The Middle" and "Modern Family" than the show I'd hoped it'd be, which is more of a 9:30 comedy in an 8:30 slot.
"Tragic is loading yourself up with so much mascara you can't blink." -- Tessa
Modern Family. Grade: C. A nice Phil moment there in the end, and a sweet voice-over from Jay, but a really mediocre episode otherwise.
"You know how in a fairy tale there's always a potion that makes the princess fall asleep and then the guys start kissing her? Well, this is like that except you don't wake up in a castle -- you wake up in a frat house with a bad reputation." -- Phil
Happy Endings. Grade: B+ Fun episode, as always, particularly the Max and Brad subplot with Larry Wilmore. I hear there is a growing contingent of Max/Brad shippers. Also, who'd have thought that the show would get so much mileage out of Max's 1989 limousine?
