Tasty TV Treats: the flava of Modern Family, Glee and Once Upon a Time


Modern Family When we left the Modern Family clan in Season 3 Gloria made the stunning announcement that she is pregnant! In the premiere of Season 4 there is only one problem with that ... Gloria can't seem to tell Jay! We will find out everyone's reactions to her pregnancy this week including my personal favorite Claire, who could not be more excited that Gloria will get fat from her pregnancy ... jealous anyone? The Prichett/Dunphy family is also planning a birthday bash for the patriarch and it seems that it may not end with Jay as a jolly good fellow. As for the Dunphy family it seems their worst nightmare is coming true — Dylan moving in. The Dunphys aren't the only ones in a nightmare. After Cam and Mitchell weren't able to adopt a second child at the end of last season they are now going a different route of adoption, adopting a furrier child — a cat. Click here to watch a sneak peek of the reactions to Gloria's pregnancy from the Modern Family!

Glee It's election season at McKinley High and this year Brittany and Blaine are battling it out for the coveted title of senior class president. In Blaine's quest to be high school royalty he seems to join every club McKinley has to offer, including the superhero club to get every vote McKinley has. As Blaine is finding new and exciting adventures around every corner Mr. Schue is finding monotony in his life and even asks Sue for a little help. On the other coast in New York it looks like Rachel may be getting a new love interest with Brody and if I may say so myself bravo Rachel. Brody is a triple threat, dancer, singer and ridiculously good looking — go get it Rachel, leave Finchel behind it is now all about Brochel! Now that Rachel is set for a perfect life in New York with a hot new love interest and a fabulous gay best friend she needs one more thing, a makeover from the one and only SJP of course!

Once Upon a Time Season 2 is all about magic! Who has it, who wants it and who knows how to use it. With the curse broken and the fairytale characters memories returning, the town of Storybrooke does what any other town would do if they magically got new identities and had no idea what to do - create an angry mob right at the evil queen's door. Regina of course welcomes the crowd thinking she has more power than them all, little does she know her magic doesn't even work in Storybrooke putting her in quite a bind. It seems Regina will not be the only villain this season, look out for Once Upon a Time to bring Captain Hook, Lacelot and The Giant from Jack and the Beanstalk to live out their fairytale lives in Storybrooke later in the season. For now watch the angry mob and Regina's reaction in a sneak peek from the premiere!
