It's a Modern World

The award winning comedy Modern Family is comfort food television. It's a sugary snack that leaves you with a warm heart and feeling a bit gooey on the inside. Exaggerated characters full of zaney cluelessness crisscross through the lives of their siblings and parents, screwing things up for one or more of their family members. Because these characters only exist in TV Land, they always pull together to resolve the mishaps with a lesson learned and a family hug by the end of the show. It's not a show that will sit along side the Seinfeld's of the comedic world but for a few hours, you can rest your brain and let slip a few chuckles at these disfunctional clans as they navigate contemporary issues.


Modern Family


Awesome series! I always enjoy watching as the crazy predicaments they get themselves into unravel. However, everything always works out for the best!
This show is laugh-out-loud funny to me. I love Phil's goofiness and his tender heart.
