Modern Family is a comedy series about three Families – first out there is Cameron and Mitchell, the gay-couple. Also Mitch is the son of Jay (played by Ed O´Neill who you may remembered as Al Bundy) who is married to Gloria and she has a son named Manny. Then there is the Dunphy-Family wich includes Phil, Claire, (who is also Jays child and there for Micth´s sister) Haley, Luke and Alex.
The show is smart and fun, and a friend of mine described it as a “feel-good”-show and i agree. There are often real “Family”-moments and the show balance the fun and touching in a great way. The characters are immediately lovably and have a perfect mix. Due to the fact that they switch between the families, and bring them together, theres always something fun happening. If you hate when you feel ashamed for characters then maybe this its not the show for you because a lot of embarrassing moments happens.
I really love the show, so give it a shot! Its great!
Season 1 is out now, and season 2 starts September 22.
