Holy smokes! Abraham Higginbotham goes Modern
2 October 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Modern Family is back for its second season, fresh from its big win at the Emmys, with a new writer- Abraham Higginbotham. I couldn't believe seeing that name in the opening credits. Higginbotham co-wrote the series Arrested Development, including its best episode Afternoon Delight, and also In God We Trust and Spring Breakout. It's great to have an opportunity to see his work again, and I'd say he's already doing well here.

The Kiss concerns, well, kisses. Modern Family's strategy is usually to have a few different plots going on which share only a motif. Mitchell can't kiss his boyfriend Cameron in public, Alex is pressured by her sister to have her first kiss. Alex is embarrassed in the process. Picking up on what was first mentioned in the Pilot, Claire has a wild past and finally admits to Alex that she was not the good little girl she claims to have been. Claire's story and Alex's debacles make for good, honest humour. Alex is one of the show's best and underrated characters- the clever trickster, who's now growing up.

Also making for good humour is Jay and Gloria fighting over traditional Colombian meals. She claims her grandmother's ghost told her to cook an exotic meal- Jay dubiously replies that a ghost told him to have steak. Seeing Cameron fall dramatically when Mitchell dodges his kiss is good physical humour (they later do kiss, which I hope appeases those who've been complaining you never see that on TV). Gloria plays mean tricks on Jay, and he deserves them. I'm looking forward to the rest of season 2.
