WOW! a laugh (as usual)
7 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

I was very surprised and pleased to see all our characters and story to mature in a great manner. Phil talks seriously with jay, Claire gets more anxiety, Luke gets more grown up, cam becomes more funny,Mitch gets more girly, Hailey becomes a woman, and of course lily starts talking(the more the funnier). I'm a 14 year-old from India and got all these episodes form my uncle in the us. i kinda have a crush on Alex or Ariel winter and greatly find her beautiful. I think her reaction towards her first kiss was true, but did not like the character of that guy. he was also kinda fat...anyway, greatly appreciate for this show as it greatly entertains me. i would love to be a part of a family like this. by the way, my favorite character is and always will be Ty Burrell 's.
