Modern Family Fulgencio
25 January 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Gloria has had her baby now but the thing that annoys Jay is her loud family coming to visit. Jay comes down with the baby and it's obvious he does not like Gloria's mother or sister much. Phil and Claire are the godparents preparing or the christening. Lily is having another attitude problem and her parents believe they should show no negativeness in front of her. Claire is absent from the house while the children of problems, Phil then must take over her job even though of them want his help. Jay and Gloria's mother fight over the name and it's obvious she does not have much a liking to her. Mitchell and Cameron thinking they are bad parents act nice in front of Lily and get dis-invited to a party. Phil try's to solve all four problems facing his family and the results become worse for everyone. Gloria try's to act nice to her sister because she feels responsible for taking her life but her sister seems quite depressed. Claire hears about her kids problems at the mass and cannot help but make jokes which makes Cameron and Mitchell realize Claire is the bad parent influencing their child. Episode ends with a godfather style ending with Luke reeking revenge on many people and also Phil's office becoming like the godfather's office with Claire left on the outside. The godfather scenes were funny but nothing really specially funny done. Nothing made me laugh and I only watch this show because it wins Emmy's, I still complain every time it wins.

EPISODE GRADE: C (MVP: Ty Burrell)
