Strongly influenced by Arrested Development and the Office (though perhaps less misanthropic than either), Modern Family is shaping up to be the seminal family sitcom of the decade. Alternately whimsically bright and shockingly dark in its comedy, but refreshingly human and always hilarious.
I don't know if I could survive the sappy ending every time. Even with that it's worth it?
I've tried so hard to like this show. My wife, whose taste is otherwise identical to mine, loves it. I just can't connect with any of the characters, I guess.
I came for Al Bundy, I stayed because it is plain funny. With a very large cast to work with it allows for pretty endless recombining of people to get fresh results.
Cons: Hard to knock it, about as mainstream a "witty" show as you could get with a gay couple and a multi-generational, multi-cultural marriage.
My favorite new show this season. Didn't expect ABC to produce such a funny show. Twists around the family sit-com without throwing out all the basics.
Cons: The dad trying to be cool for his younger kids is a fresh yet annoying take on the typical sitcom buffoon father.
