Modern Family Episode 3- 5 Review “Hit and Run”

I was a big Modern Family fan in the first season and looked forward to every episode. Now, I would be fine missing an episode here or there or, if I were forced to, not watching altogether. My general apathy towards the show extends to “Hit and Run,” which is not a bad episode, just nothing special.

There’s Cam and Mitchell at odds, Phil’s well-intentioned screw ups, Haley getting trouble, and a lot of Gloria (in more ways than one). It’s amusing, but I didn’t really find myself laughing. What’s more promising is Claire’s run for city council. She’s not only running against David Cross, who’s great as the smug politician, but it also gives her something more to do for multiple episodes.

Score: 8.5/10
