Advertisements I'm just not liking this season compared to the first two. Yes I know it's still better than most things on TV... I absolutely can't stand Claire at all. If there's a "very special episode" where Phil becomes a widower I would love it. Cam & Mitchell being bored. Meh. Same with the switched cars. And even Manny, usually one of my favorites, was a so-so plot. Phil at his college was probably the highlight.
