Make Shelley Long A Regular
13 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

IMO the reason this was one of the best episodes is because of Shelley Long. Every episode she has appeared in Modern Family has been excellent. This show needs her quirkiness. She especially works well against Ed Neill. It's hard to imagine that they were ever married to each other, but that's what makes their chemistry in the show so good. I think instead of focusing so much on the kids, the show should focus on their mother. It would be interesting to see how the craziness of both Neill and Long contributed to the makeup of the kids. So far it just seems like Long is brought into the show to be used as a monkey wrench in Neill's second marriage. It's just amazing to me how many more stories can be developed if Long was a regular in the show. 3 episodes is not enough of Shelley Long in Modern Family.
