Modern Family: The Complete First Season

Season two of Modern Family debuts on ABC on September 22nd, and after the show’s recent Emmy haul I’m sure they’re going to  gain even more fans in their sophomore season.  Last summer the previews caught my interest so I gave the show a chance, and I’m so glad I did!  It’s become one of my weekly “must watch” shows.  Never too heavy, always full of snort-laughing-worthy dialogue and comedic timing, Modern Family is worth checking out if you’ve never watched it before.

The show, shot in a “mockumentory” style, focues on the family headed by patriarch Jay Pritchett, and his children Claire and Mitchell and their respective spouses and kids.  This isn’t the Norman Rockwell family of the 1950’s but rather a family that most of us can relate to on one level or another.  Jay Pritchett is divorced and has remarried a much younger and very sexy Colombian woman named Gloria, Claire has the most familiar family style but her husband Phil makes up for the normalcy by being completely abnormal (hee!) and Mitchell is gay, married to Cameron and father of adopted baby Lily.

My friend Kathy is the biggest Modern Family fan I know.  She’s always keeping her friends up to date on Facebook when Modern Family is on and always has a comment on the latest episode.  I asked her for her thoughts on what makes Modern Family so great.

I love Modern Family because it gets me through the week. No matter how crazy life gets, I know that on Wednesday nights, I will sit on my couch and laugh till it hurts. I’ve never watched a show that is so funny – every week I think there’s no way they could top last week’s episode, but they always do. I love the little “interviews” they do in between scenes, and it cracks me up the way they make eye contact with the camera sometimes. It’s a very unique way of filming a sit-com. Phil and Cam are my favourites, although I love them all. Hands down, Modern Family is my favourite show on tv – possibly of all time!
