Out of the Blue

Have any of you been watching Modern Family? MrsBlue and I found this sitcom several episodes into its run and just recently caught up with most of the season after DVRing it. The show is a take on the traditional one-camera sitcom using the ever-more-common documentary approach, with an unexplained office-style camera following the goings-on. The cast includes Ed O'Neill and the beautiful Julie Bowen as well as the way beyond beautiful Sofía Vergara, who would make the show worth watching even if it wasn't so funny, which it is. Anyway, thinking MrsBlue and I have been the kiss of death for shows we like lately, I recently checked the ratings and see the show is a bona fide hit, and has been renewed for next season.

Awesome Kid Gets Detention For Being Hilarious.

The best part about that is the writing looks to be of a 20-30 something teacher, so she obviously also thought it was funny, but had to write the kid up anyway.

If it was my kid.....hard to say...."Well son....that is funny as hell, just not in class."

Cutter has just been generally angry for... a while now.

Make reproduction state sanctioned, because let's face it, most people should NOT bee having kids, and you'll see me a lot happier. Society is going to shit, what's there to be happy about?

The "Life Cycle of a Videogame Franchise Addict" comic seems appropriate for today, given the announcement of Civilization 5... there goes another 2,000 hours of my life.

I think the show is hilarious, and don't normally watch any serial shows like that. The cast is pretty amazing and their way of following story lines and famalies is pretty good.

The little boy (the one that got the lice once) is damn damn funny.

I'm honestly not sure if he's stable enough to be given that sort of credit.

I don't think suggesting he picks fights by insulting strangers so he can beat on them is giving him too much credit for stability.

You notice how quickly EBG starts screaming he hit me, he hit me first after the beat-down? He is obviously a disturbed individual, but as I say, I think he's done this enough in the past to know he wants to be able to claim self-defense.

IMO, it should have ended once EBG went to the front of the bus.

I agree - though it also seems clear that he came from there initially to keep baiting the kid, as someone tells him to go back to his seat.

t picks up after things had been underway for a while, but it seems as if EBG made some sort of comment about the kid shining his shoes. It gives the impression that he has done this type of thing before - bait someone so they start a fight that he can then finish and claim self-defense.

I'm honestly not sure if he's stable enough to be given that sort of credit. I just don't know...there's another clip of off once he gets off the bus, and he just doesn't seem stable.

IMO, it should have ended once EBG went to the front of the bus. But it didn't, and I equally blame the person behind the camera (who has also posted their own video now) who was egging the black gentleman on.

Regardless, the brother was an idiot who didn't know when to shut up like so many of them don't.

I have to say, you seem to be surprisingly bigoted for someone with such strong liberal leanings.

I'm still not sure who started the verbal exchange, but it looks like the black gentleman (and I use that phrase loosely, based on his smack talk comments, post fight) started the physical fight and the white gentleman (again, loosely) finished it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U5t6I8xks0

The full clip demonstrates this is what happened. It picks up after things had been underway for a while, but it seems as if EBG made some sort of comment about the kid shining his shoes. It gives the impression that he has done this type of thing before - bait someone so they start a fight that he can then finish and claim self-defense.

Glad to hear about the ratings for Modern Family, I'm a big fan of Ed O'Neill. The last show I saw him in, John From Cincinnati, was doomed from the beginning but he did a fantastic job in it.

Also a big fan of Epic Beard Man.
