Tonight at 9p on ABC, Modern Family is doing something no other scripted show has ever done before. The episode was shot using only Apple products like the iPhone, iPad and MacBook Pro. It sounds like it won’t work, but is the show’s best episode so far.
Claire (Julie Bowen) is in Chicago for a business trip. While waiting to board her flight at O’Hare airport, she decides to check in with her family. That turns out to be a really big mistake on her part.
Before she left on her trip, she got into a fight with Hayley (Sarah Hyland) and she hasn’t been able to get in touch with her ever since.
First she Facetime’s with Phil (Ty Burrell) to check on the kids, but he is too busy playing with his new game to know where they are. Then she asks Alex (Ariel Winter) if she knows where her sister is and she doesn’t. She decides to let it go when she checks Facebook and she realizes she forgot her brother Mitchell’s (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) birthday. While Facetiming with her dad (Ed O’Niell) she asks him if he remembered and he did. Calling his son on the phone is something that Jay can figure out, Facetiming is not something he has quite yet mastered.
Next up she calls her brother to wish him a happy birthday. While talking to her brother and his his husband (Eric Stonestreet) she wants to see if they know where Hayley is, and then Alex calls in. Claire begs her daughter to call her sister, but she refuses. Alex tells her mom to check Hayley’s Facebook and her daughter has changed her status to married. Now all the Pritchards are trying to find out if Hayley really got married and to whom in less that 20 minutes. That is the amount of time she has before she has to board the plane to LA.
If that is not enough to drive her crazy, Luke (Nolan Gould) asked Gloria to give him a mohawk. Claire didn’t know anything about it and she is upset by it.
While that is the plot and it totally works, there is more to this episode. The episode is all seen from the perspective of Claire’s computer. So the whole episode takes place on her computer screen. You see her Facetime with her family, check websites and Facebook, look at pictures in her gallery and watch videos like the fight she had with Hayley.
If you are reading this, then you are computer literate, so you’ve done what Claire has done a million times. You just have never seen it done by a TV show before, and a sitcom that does it so brilliantly. So check out something that has never been done before, but will most likely be done time and time again.
When I heard about Hot Pursuit, I thought it was going to be absolutely awful. Then I wacthed the trailer for the movie, that stars Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon, and I can’t wait to see it on May 8th. The two actresses have a real galmance going on and it shows.
Sofia Vergara shared a photo of herself with Reese Witherspoon’s head on her chest and many many men are jealous of the Oscar winner. So what is going on here? We will have to wait until their movie Hot Pursuit comes out on May 8th.
Who needs a trailer when you have a photo like this. I am sure this one frame will convince more people to go see their film than 90 seconds of video could ever do.
Sofia Vergara went to Hawaii with her boyfriend, Joe Manganiello, for his birthday, but she is the one who got the real present. That is because the two of them, who have been dating since July, got engaged on Christmas according to Eonline. No, word when the big day is. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they are married before their one year anniversary. I also wouldn’t be surprised if they had beautiful children together.
Eric Stonestreet Instagrammed this photo of himself strangling Rob Lowe, so you have to wonder if the Modern Family star is jealous of the Brat Packer’s sexy good looks at 50. Probably, because how can you not be; but in this photo it was two guys having some fun at the World Series Game supporting their Kansas City Royals.
BTW out of all the pictures that I have seen of Rob Lowe, this one is the closest I’ve seen to showing you how mesmerizing his eyes are in person. You are seriously under his spell when he looks at you with those baby blues!
The Modern Family family seem really close, but Sofia Vergara told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she has a problem with someone on the set. Who is the cast member that she says she doesn’t like? It is Brigitte, who plays Gloria’s dog Stella. Vergara says that she doesn’t think her four-legged co-star is that good of an actor. I sense some jealousy there, because even Brigette has won an award for her work on the show and Sofia has not.
But seriously, if I were Sofia I would be careful before I eat any of the chocolate on the set. It might just be a present from her arf-nemesis.
Ellen DeGeneres really really really loves to scare Eric Stonestreet when he is on her show and yesterday he thought he one upped her. He brought his two friends to protect him from her by being his lookout, but it didn’t work. That’s because she is smarter than him. See how she outsmarted him, Well that and to see if you can see the moment he pooped in his pants.
I know the Modern Family star says that he won’t be back on the show again, but I hope goes back. That’s because I love watching Ellen scare the sh!t out of him almost as much as she does. Isn’t it fun?
Eric Stonestreet Instragrammed this video of Jesse Tyler Ferguson and himself making out with themselves. Proving the two Modern Family stars are really into themselves. While I think it is obvious about one of the actors, the other one kind of surprised me about his self loving.
