Modern Family takes a refreshing and funny view of what it means to raise a family in this hectic day and age. Multicultural relationships, adoption, and same-sex marriage are just a few of the timely issues faced by the show's three wildly-diverse broods. No matter the size or shape, family always comes first in this hilariously 'modern' look at life, love, and laughter.

I can't figure the popularity of this show, would say that at times it is mildly amusing but nothing like laugh at loud comedy. The characters within these suburban "modern families" are portrayed as stereotypical, cliched and shallow. The plot lines of their daily lives are contrived, exaggerated and unrealistic. Wonder if admirers identify with the family members which accounts for its popularity?

The characters are quickly well-defined and the incongruity & contrast of normal expectations to humorous outcomes is fast-paced and well presented in a documentary style. The hand held camera & quick edits that include personal retrospective interviews juxtaposed with regular scenes add to the entertainment value.

This show is hilarious, in part because the family interactions are so real even though the situations are so bizarre.

I didn't know what to think going into this show, but found myself laughing non-stop. I would highly recommend this to fans of dysfunctional family comedies.

From Episode 2 The Bicycle Thief.................
Jay Pritchett: Manny thinks his dad is like Superman. The truth, he's a total flake. In fact, the only way he's like Superman is that they both landed in this country illegally.
