This was a boo boo that I didn't really expect too see on a show like Modern Family. I'm talking about the episode 4x22 'My Hero'.
I mean, I guess it started okay. We (Cam and Mitch) meet a person who turns out was Mitch's ex-partner. He invites them to a some sort of a fundraiser.
They say yes.
Still good. 'Something's going to happen'. A good way to start telling your story.
But when they get to the event..
..it turns out that this ex-partner Teddy who we had never heard about before.. ..is a close family friend of the Dunphys.
He's apparently friends even with Alex and Haley.
I was like.. what the..
Everyone in the Dunphy family knows this guy.. .. but I don't.
The last four years I've lived with these people and yet I had no idea this guy existed.
If this character really did exist in the Modern Family universe, we would have seen him already - many many many times.
That makes me wonder..
What else do I not know about my favorite family?
Are there other important characters on this show that I haven't heard about before?
Based on this episode, I guess anything is possible.
I mean, they might even have a kid in the household that we simply haven't seen yet.
Could it be that they're not even a real family?
Phil is really a space alien?
Obviously this is not how you're supposed to write a show.
