Out of the Blue

Last night turned out to be a mini-nightmare for Hudson the wonder dog. I've mentioned before how my brave Airedale's fear of thunder and explosions also applies to the chirp of a smoke alarm that needs new batteries. This turned into a problem when one of the plotlines in last night's episode of Modern Family involved being unable to locate a smoke detector making such a chirp, so the episode featured the sound throughout, which freaked her out more each time it happened, even after turning the volume way down. If the episode had gone any longer than it did we would have just given up and shut it off. Luckily we don't generally watch reruns.

I'll tell you why Wrath of Khan was not a better move than the first one.

THAT TERRIBLE FAKE CHEST!!!


yes I know the debate rages, but it is obviously fake. I never hear any dialogue when Ricardo is on screen. All I can see is the fakeness. I obsess over how unnatural it is, and how it never flexes or moves.
