    Two solid episodes to start the year off. Got into the show about midway through last year so I'm catching up on Seasons 1 and 2 via Netflix, or whatever the fuck its now called.

    This and Fringe are the two shows I know I should be watching, but haven't caught up and don't want to wait for the DVDs to arrive in the mail. Stupid Netflix Instant

    I definitely recommend it, check out Hulu too...i think they have a lot of the older episodes.

    Season 1 of Modern Family is excellent. IMO, Season 2, while still solid, seemed to not be as good. I enjoyed both episodes last night.

    It's nowhere near as edgy as Sunny or Louie, but for a family sitcom it's got some great lines. I laugh at something every episode. 1000x better than any of the shitty CBS procedural comedies.

    I've heard enough good things from enough different people to at least convince me that this is a show I can at least tolerate in a non-ironic fashion. (Oh Walden Schmidt, dumb as a rock with a giant dick. What craziness will you get into next week!?)

    Ty Burrell is the shit. If I gave a shit about the Office anymore, he would be my first choice to replace Carrell.

    It's not like Raymond. Maybe like a white Cosby Show.

    No, it's nothing like Raymond. It's hard to describe, basically Ed Harris is the father/grandfather, and he has two kids who have their own families. One is a flamboyantly gay lawyer with a husband and adopted daughter, and the other is the hot blonde from Happy Gilmore who's married to a goofy as fuck real estate agent with 2 hot daughters and a funny son. There's no laugh track, and it's got some funny moments... It's definitely not a patronizing piece of shit like Raymond or King of Queens or those dogshit shows.

    The only thing I really don't like about the show is Ed Harris's wife. She's too over-the-top for me, but after seeing her in a few interviews it seems like that's just the way she is. There's not enough hotness for me to ever put up with a bitch like that.

    I don't know, I watch it. It's not my favorite, but it's on the DVR.

    You're probably right. Love Ed Harris in it though...

    Well it's not like you'd have to get a tattoo on your forehead if you checked it out...

    You know what... I never even thought of him. He probably would've been a helluva replacement. I think Spader is going to do a good job, but The Office probably just needs to end.

    I'm the same way. If I can't see all the episodes of a show I'm not jumping into it. I don't care even if there are no story arcs.

    For something like a Three's Company or even a Perfect Strangers I can just say "fuck it, syndication whatever" but for something more recently and supposedly of quality like Modern Family, I need to be in it from the beginning. I'm not going to watch 2 episodes of halfway through season 2 and then get into season 3. I need to go on the journey. Hell, when I decided to get into Doctor Who I watched from An Unearthly Child onward, though I did end up watching the newer series simultaneously.

    There's not much of a journey... I mean, there's an ongoing story line, but it's not necessarily needed in the progression.

    You're an OCD tele/cinephile, so by all means catch it from day one, but don't feel the need to skip re-runs or new episodes because you're not caught up.

    It has a very Married With Children vibe that way. Every episode stands on it's own, but Bud and Kelly get older over time, and Marcy might upgrade husbands.

    Jefferson was a downgrade. Steve was better.
