'Modern Family' - 'Princess Party': The return of Fizbo?

As I explained in my response to the Slate piece about the state of TV criticism, I stopped writing about"Modern Family" because dealing with many of the comments each week had become thoroughly unpleasant, and I'd rather spend my limited time writing about other shows that weren't such a hassle. That said, it's been about six weeks since the last time I wrote anything about an episode on this blog, and more than two months since my last full-on review, and last night's episode seemed to encapsulate a lot of things that have been bothering me about the show this season, so I have some things to say on that subject.

I will also say right now: if reading a negative review of an episode of television you enjoyed causes you emotional pain, or even just diminishes the viewing experience, please do not click through and read this. This is supposed to be fun, dammit, and I won't be offended. If, on the other hand, you're genuinely curious for my opinion of "Princess Party," and season two to date, and think you can view those opinions as simply that and not some kind of weird vendetta (again, please read this post, in which I address the conspiracy theorists among you), then by all means, follow me to the review, coming up just as soon as I disrespect party themes...
