Modern Family: "Treehouse" Review














It's very rare for a show to improve each episode, season
after season, but Modern Family is a rare and special
show.

Tonight's episode was called "Treehouse" and centered
around four storylines, Jay and Gloria go dancing, Cam
makes a bet that he can get a woman's number, Phil
build's a tree house for Luke and Julia trying to teach Haley
a lesson, which was by far the weakest story line.

It was the Cam storyline that stole the show, trying to win
a bar bet with Mitch that he can pick up a straight woman
by acting straight had me in stitches. The bet was that the
loser had to do the laundry of the other for a month.

Cam's line "Make the seams straight like me" was the highlight
of the show. Of course the woman knew Cam was gay
all the time, but didn't let on to Mitch which was a sweet
moment.

The other sweet moment on the show came near the end,
when Phil made a new friend, his child like enjoyment in
that, left the viewer with a genuine heartfelt moment.

The Jay and Gloria storyline had it's moments, along with
the tree house being like the stairs, but this was definitely
Cam's episode.

Ten out of ten again.

Can't wait for next week.

Best show on television.

I didn’t care much for the tree house aspect to the episode but when Cam tries to pick up a woman at the bar I was seriously laughing. The poor guy wanted to be taken seriously as a potentially straight guy which was hilarious and I’m glad they ended things the way they did. Honestly I wouldn’t even have time to watch TV if I didn’t get a free DISH Network Sling adapter that gives me live or recorded TV from my employee DVR anywhere I go. Now with my iPhone and Galaxy Tab I watch when I have spare time and still spend quality time with my family when I get home.
