  • Originally, it is a French TV series

    5.0
    The TV series "modern family" broadcast from September 23, 2009 on ABC, is an American adaptation of "Fais pas i, fais pas a " (literally: Don't do this, don't do that) created since September 8, 2007 for the French television (France 2).



    In 2008, ABC has bought an option to adapt the concept to the American continent. The project, entitled Don't do this, don't do that, is canceled.



    However, in 2009, ABC broadcasts Modern Family, a series that keeps many similarities with the French series (several families followed as a mockumentary). Similarities of the suspected plagiarism.



    To date, the rights for an American adaptation are still available. For proof, in 2012, the production announced it has been approached by CBS for adaptation.



    In addition, the series has been exported to many European countries and China. Polish producers have also adapted.



    It's really strange that no one alluded to in that forum.



    At the beginning of the first season, the French series is built like a TV show parody, documentary boundary and the "reality show" with their family life type respectively applying different methods of education, and to show its effects on children. In the first episode, the parents come and expose why they accept this experience.



    I imagine the scenario recall you something?moreless

  • Fake, plastic and boring

    1.0
    I hate this show. I miss The Big Bang theory. The only reason why I watch it for minutes it is because is before American Family.
  • I Love this show

    10
    It is a amazing and funny show
  • I have no problem with the show, really.

    5.0
    Even though this show is one of the most popular, at LEAST it's not half as stupid as The Big Bang Theory. I don't hate the series, I just hate how it's gonna be a (negative) influence for aspiring television writers. It already has shows that were influenced by this show: The Middle and Black-ish. But I like The Middle better. This show, eh... not one of my favorites really, but I'm gonna give this show a 5.0 out of 10.moreless
