Richard Kramer: “The Gay Characters on New Normal and Modern Family and Glee are snippy-sweet, proudly trivial, commedia dell’arte figures fingering price tags at Design Within Reach on a Sunday afternoon.

So this is one the best pieces of criticism (at least on television) that I have ever read. It’s thoughtful but also fun:
"Thomas’s hopes were nudged along by Miss O’Brien, the lady’s maid who defies all efforts to motivate her malevolence, although one reason might be a hairdo that would drive anyone to evil, featuring two coiled hair-Slinkies that sprout from her forehead and serve, it seems, as receivers for Satan’s commands."
