Modern Family Season 2 Episode 5: Unplugged S02E05

Modern Family season 2 episode 5 called “Unplugged” which was directed by Michael Spiller and written by Steven Levitan aired last night on ABC.

There were three storylines in this week’s episode that were pretty solid eve-thought there was not much interaction between the three families.

Here is a brief recap of “Unplugged” :

The first plot dealt with Claire having the brilliant idea of telling her family that it was time to drop all of their electronic devices – but Phil who is always there to add something unreal to the mix decided to turn it into a contest where the person who stays offline the longest gets a car.

Haley wins by fooling her parents with a phone carved out of a bar of soap – but her dreams are crushed when she learns that even-thought she did win, she gets no car because they can not afford it.

The second story was all about the neighbor’s dog that kept Gloria and Manny up all night – but Jay was able to sleep like a log because of his has “old ears.” Gloria confronts the neighbor and the next day the animal vanishes, so Jay and Manny start snooping around because Gloria has a habit of killing animals.
As it turned out Gloria simply send the dog to a farm.

Last but not least we had Mitchell and Cam going crazy while seeking for a prestigious preschool for Lily. When they learn that being a gay couple with an Asian baby will get them in any school they want – the duo aimed for Billingsley, the Harvard of preschools. But all goes wrong during the interview when Cam starts talking like a Native American and saying the word “maize” over and over.

Overall it was a good episode but we have seen better from the series, it was really a bad and very unfunny idea to have Cam botcher Lily’s interview preschool by pretending to be part Cherokee.
Here are few funny tidbits from the installment:

Jay promising to stop belittling Colombia and take Gloria, Manny, and Jay to her village where she accidentally killed two goats.
Gloria:“Now the dog is happy, Manny can sleep, and we have pickles.”
Jay:”She once hacked the head off of a rat and left it near the trash as a warning to the other rats.”
Cam:“Leave it to the gays to raise the only underachieving Asian in America.”
Mitch:“Disabled Asian Lesbians with an African kicker–didn`t see that one coming,”
Jay:”Don’t most kids drink soda?”
Manny:”Who knows what they do?”

“She’s always had a certain comfort level with… killing.”

What are your thoughts on the episode?

That’s all we have for now on Modern Family season 2 episode 5.
