Maybe it was just us, but on the finale, it looked like he tripped on a different step?
I absolutely loved Sofia Vergara going through the drawer, and talking about all the stuff from previous episodes. Something about that with her dialect just makes me laugh.
Yeah, I thought that, too.
I never saw the first season, so made my first ITunes purchase for my new IPad. (I see a bad trend beginning)! The pilot was possibly the funniest pilot I've ever seen. Phil took the longest to grow on me when I was first watching because he was a little too hammy to be believable (until I started believing him). He was great in the pilot.
WTF - why the face?
I have to remember that line.
I wondered that. Maybe it is now a backstage/camera crew gag. They move which one is to be loose on him.
I doubt there's actually a loose step on the set. I'm guessing it's just a bit of physical comedy that Ty Burrell does.
Yeah having an actual loose step that they move so as to surprise a critical cast member doesn't seem like it would be a good idea.
but we have seen the loose step falling off in previous episodes. Very recently, in fact (just a week or two ago).
It's been loose since the beginning of the show.
What was meta about it?
And as for the step, I think its placement depends upon the camera angle. If they are shooting up from below and need the loose step to be the last joke then it's at the top. If the camera angle is shooting from above and it needs to be the center of the shot then it's in the middle, etc.
I can't tell if you're joking or not.
I'm not joking. I must have missed it.
I agree. It is either that we have a hard time telling due to the angle - or they move it to be convenient to the shot. I think it is generally in the middle, but varies by a few steps towards the top or dead center.
Doesn't meta mean an art form referencing itself?
A clip show isn't meta. Meta would be if someone referenced Married With Kids to Jay (since he was on that show as a different character).
But was it really a clip show when the clips were never shown...
I'm so confused. And possibly out of touch.
Self referential things aren't meta. If, when Jay met up with his old college buddy, they had shown a flashback of the two of them cheering - that's not meta.
