Bryan is furious and mortified when a cheesy private video he made as anniversary surprise for David is posted on Internet. That's the result of his PA using his laptop to demonstrate posting to grandma Jane, who converts to virtual communication to set up a real estate business in LA so she needs not return to Ohio. The boys can't resist cheating after grudgingly promising to partake in an unplugged Thanksgiving resulting from Goldie's dumb attempt to educate and shut up Shania. Amused and supportive 'audience' reactions at work make Bryan reconsider. Written by KGF Vissers

this episode missed the mark
14 January 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I agree with the other reviewer of this episode who thought something went wrong with the series in the episode titled Unplugged. The first 7 episodes were amusing and then all of a sudden this one really fell flat. for me there were zero laughs from a ridiculous scrip. I will watch a few more episodes and hope they improve. The acting was OK- Ellen Barkin is always in character as the NaNa - but Justin Bartha just doesn't convince. NeNe Leakes is so funny in this series that she deserves a show of her own. Andrew Rannells is getting better as the series goes along. I think a big problem for the show is comparisons to Modern Family which has superior acting and scripts.
