The More You Ignore Me - S07E06
16 December 2018 | by rganSee all my reviews

It's charming to see the subtlety in the similarities between Jay and Phil, and why the chemistry between Phil and Claire is so strong. In this episode we see Jay reminisce about how he became a successful businessman, carefully orchestrating events to get people what they want without forcing them into it, and the parallels of Phil as a younger version of Jay fighting to prove the naysayers wrong. While O'Neill is excellent in his overseeing role, it is once again Burrell in a scene stealing turn as Phil that keeps the interest as the episode progresses. Another strong episode, "The More You Ignore Me" is a fitting insight into the inner workings of the family and, despite how much the characters may disagree, how alike they can be at times.
