Modern Family



Modern Family is THE new hit show. To put it simply, it’s hilarious! Really, the only downside to this show is that you can only get it in thirty minute doses! The plot of the show is almost like a documentary (much like The Office) of what is seemingly a very modern family. The show follows three groups of people.

The first includes a hard headed, getting up there in age man named Jay (Who played Al Bundy in Married With Children). Jay is married to a young, hot Columbian, Gloria, who a soft spoken, flamboyant son, Manny.  This group combines for a lot of laughs, as Jay knows he is too old for Gloria, who catches every guys eye, and Manny who is a short-sighted romantic.

The second group includes the daughter of Jay, Claire, played by Julie Bowen (That hot chick in Happy Gilmore) who is a stressed out mother, who very often overreacts to minor details. Claire is married to Phil Dunphy. Phil is the complete opposite of a ladies man, he is awkward, he is naïve, and best yet, he is down right hilarious! Claire and Phil are polar opposites, which makes their scenes side-splitting. Claire and Phil have three, very different kids. The first is Haley, a teenager who is a complete airhead. The second is Alex, a pre-teen who is probably the smartest in the entire family. The third is Luke, he’s a little kid with a lot of heart, but has a very hollow head.

The third part of the family rounds out the family in likely the most “Modern” way. Mitchell is also Jay’s son, and he always failed to live up to this fact. Mitchell is gay, which makes for his interaction with Jay an awkward ruse. Mitchell’s boyfriend, Cam, is basically as gay as they come, but is not the typical person you think of when you think of a homosexual. Cam basically is a housewife, who tends to his and Mitchell’s recently adopted Asian baby. These two are a real laugh, as both are competing to try to be the man in the relationship, but both have redeeming qualities that show that they both really aren’t.

So there you go! That's Modern Family in a nutshell! Catch it tonight on ABC at 9! You’ll be glad you did! The winner of the poll comes next! IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1442437/

  8. "The second is Alex, a pre-teen who is probably the smartest in the entire family." Stewie type character! Also that sure is a crapload of divergent personalities.

  10. Leaving a second comment to thank you for the recommendation. I was dubious this would be typical American sitcom garbage (I mean come on Everybody Loves Raymond? It sucks) but I actually found myself cracking up at this. I like the gay guys the best and the "cool" dad. So yeah thanks for this bro!
