I really fancy the dad shock

How wrong is this??

LyndaCartersBigPants Fri 07-Feb-14 00:01:20

Oh yes. I would.

Although I think he would have made a perfect lead in the American version of The Office instead of Steve Carrell, as he is a bit cringey like Gervais.

Me too!

BumPop Fri 07-Feb-14 00:08:55

He loves a bossy woman, we'd be perfect together..…...

Although the step kids would be a handful. shock

Well Phil is obviously more conventionally handsome but, to me, Jay is more fanciable. Phil comes over like a big wimp in every scene with Jay, and let's face it - if he can satisfy Gloria there's got to be something about Jay wink.

When I said the dad I meant Jay wink

When will there be a new series? I miss Phil, could do without Claire!

grin crossed wires georgie

Actually I fancy Glloria wink.

Gloria, with one 'L' obvs

I think if you dont fancy Gloria then there. Is something very wrong with you. And I'm saying that as a straight woman.

I really want a friend like Cameron.

Phil is my favourite.

AtiaoftheJulii Fri 07-Feb-14 08:47:20

Jay's such an alpha male. I definitely would. Not Phil though, he's just a manchild.

MargotLovedTom Fri 07-Feb-14 09:14:56

I love Cameron.

I've only seen the first two series on Netflix, and I was crying with laughter a few times. I've heard it goes off the boil a bit in later series.

On a side note - does Lily ever smile?!

curiousgeorgie Fri 07-Feb-14 09:48:04

The baby lily was so cute... This older one is a bit scary!

New series starts on Sky 1 on the 17th, I believe!

Older Lily is a bit scary. Cam and Mitchell are my favourites, closely followed by Gloria.

I love them all. I do see what you see in Jay.

Nice mini-interview with Phil actor. He says "Being in Phil's head is like taking a trip to the spa."

curiousgeorgie Fri 07-Feb-14 10:11:16

I think the reason it doesn't seem do good now is because Manny & Luke's voices etc have changed overnight and they seem too old!

I'm a bit wistful for how adorable Luke used to be...

I don't think it can go on for that much longer really. The children are growing up and it's not the same. I would've preferred it if the eldest girl had gone to college but they never do in these things. It will be interesting to see if the brainy one does. Having said that, I still love it. The father is the double of my dad so I can't say anything about fancying him grin and the husband is totally my brother in law!

Did you see them on In the Studio? It's amazing how alike the actors are to the roles. Cameron used to be a clown, Jays wife is the double of Gloria but ten years older and, Gloria really talks like that!

LyndaCartersBigPants Fri 07-Feb-14 13:02:25

Oh in that case, I wouldn't! I thought you meant Phil grin

LyndaCartersBigPants Fri 07-Feb-14 13:03:23

I keep getting Dylan's "under the moonlight" song stuck in my brain! That is one of my fave scenes.

MargotLovedTom Fri 07-Feb-14 14:23:25

Cameron's straight in real life, that's a big difference between character and real life wink.

MauriceMinor Fri 07-Feb-14 14:35:44

"I really wanna do you, do you, do you wanna do me?" I love that episode.

In the current series (5) some of the characters have aged a lot, including Phil. Luke and Manny are proper teens now and unfortunately have lost what made them appealing in the earlier seasons. Very tricky for the writers to know what comes next I suppose. It's so hugely successful they won't want to stop but I worry it'll peter out.

I have all 5 series on my ipad and Julie Bowen gets thinner with each one.

Oh, in answer to the OP - I think Phil is very attractive but I imagine he's ridiculous in bed. Very talky...

You fancy Al Bundy?? shock

AtiaoftheJulii Fri 07-Feb-14 14:48:40

Lol, yeah, strange but true! I didn't fancy him as Al Bundy though, honest ;)
