I really fancy the dad shock

How wrong is this??

Love this programme. My favourite couple is Mitch and Cam. Cam is hilarious. Not so keen on Claire's character and I don't think the actress pulls it off as well as the rest. The actor who plays Manny is fantastic. Looking forward to the new series starting.

Did you know the actress who plays Hayley had a kidney transplant recently? Apparently shooting a scene that involves walking or standing for a long time really tired her out so a lot of her scenes are filmed sitting down.

I have said it before and I will say it again. There is something likable about Phil. He's so quiet and whipped, but I bet he's an animal in bed.

But Jay I still see Al Bundy. Probably doesn't help his wife in that, had the same figure as Gloria.

I want them to adopt a sibling for her. It was so sad last time when they got let down.

Julie Bowen (Claire) was heavily pregnant with twins when filming the pilot episode (where they were trying to schedule 'shooting' Luke). In all her scenes she's either wearing a baggy cardigan or carrying a laundry basket to hide the bump. So, yes, she has got thinner!
I think the "new" Lily is awesome! Such a little madame, one of my favourite characters, along with Cam and Manny.

The older daughter did go to college but she got caught drinking and was kicked out.

Not Phil... Jay wink

Phil? Ewww! No! He's weirdly cadaverous looking...

But the actor who plays him is beyond brilliant.

I know cams straight but he still grew up on a farm and spent many years as a clown!

Julie Bowan had twins at some point earlier on so maybe that could explain the wright loss.

Poor Alex's family life outside the show sounds pretty awful. Family fighting over custody of her etc sad

grin

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

You fancy Al Bundy?? shock

"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...

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

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

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

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

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!

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 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."

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.

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

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

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?!

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.

LadyAlysVorpatril Fri 07-Feb-14 08:33:52

Phil is my favourite.

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.
