Okay Episode
21 November 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 (C H R I S T M A S ) MOVIES AND SPECIALS.

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I AM HONEST! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN!

I was very disappointed in this episode of "Modern Family". In this episode. In this episode the family realizes that they are not going to spend "Christmas Together" for the first time ever. So they decide that they will have "Christmas Now". All the characters must overcome obstructions in order to do their part for "Express Christmas".

The highlight of the episode is the scenes in Target.

The first year had a much better "Christmas Episode". This one isn't bad but it just doesn't deliver the laughs or the heart that we came to expect.
