“We May Never Pass This Way Again” (Season 6 Wrap-Up)

Seventeen episodes into this season, after the Alex-less “Closet? You'll Love It!”, I was ready to make this end-of-season post a rant-fest, as in “How dare they treat Alex like that, blah, blah, blah...”

And then the last seven episodes happened, with an unprecedented focus on Alex (six out of the seven episodes had at a least a small story about her). But while they saved the season from being a near total disaster, did they save the season, period?

“Bittersweet Symphony” (“American Skyper” Recap)

My feeling at the end of the night? Numb from disappointment.

"One Day In Your Life"

Well, we're almost here - the Season 6 finale of Modern Family is tonight, and with it the finale of Alex's high school story.

“This Used To Be My Playground” (“Crying Out Loud” Recap)

Well, if nothing else, tonight's episode confirmed that Alex is indeed going to CalTech. And she'll be living with a girl named Alaina from somewhere in North Carolina (at least that's how the closed captioning spelled her name). As for Alex's story itself, I feel weirdly detached about it.

Upside/Down(side) - "Crying Out Loud"

Considering how much potential there is contained in the title this really does not look like that big a deal of an episode from Alex's standpoint - none of the promo pictures or the promo commercial or this sneak peek video look promising for her having any big emotional moments tonight (it's looks like it's Jay and possibly Mitch or Lily who might be doing the crying).

"Find One Hundred Ways"

Sorry, Post #100 isn't going to be some great and memorable post that will be talked about for years: it's just going to be me posting a link to promo pictures for the last two episodes.

“Kiss Me, Beneath The Milky Twilight” (“Patriot Games” Recap)

I'm just going to come right out and say it – although there's a small part of me that wishes Alex had kept running and won the race, in the end who cares if the race wound up being anti-climatic? Those scenes with Alex and Sanjay were so darned cute they more than made up for that.

Upside/Down(side) - “Patriot Games”

I really have mixed emotions about tonight. On one hand, not since “Under Pressure” have I been so looking forward to an episode of Modern Family. In fact, in one sense there is more anticipation: I've been waiting for this episode to air for two months, whereas the wait time for “Under Pressure” was only about 3 weeks.

But, on the other hand, I am more than a little bit nervous as to how Alex's story tonight plays out.

"Gonna Fly Now"

So, with a big boxing match coming up tonight (with an even bigger pay-per-view price tag), I thought I might take a shot at writing a promo for Wednesday's "main event" in the style of an ad hyping a big fight.  So here goes nothing:
