Meh
29 April 2012 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

First of all, love the show.

But this episode (s3e19) leaves me bit disappointed. A bit to far stretched and predictable storyline. And with the storyline I mean Claire running for office. The build up of goofs and things that go wrong were over the top for me (for example, we know Walt's an antisocial character, but the way he acts in this episode is so extreme that I was waiting, in vain, for the moment that Phil, in anger, euthanises Walt with a pillow).

I feel like the freshness was a bit missing, I've had it before with Modern Family but each time they pull through with a next episode that's hilarious. I hope they can do it again.
