Show Summary

This mockumentary explores the many different types of a modern family through the stories of a gay couple, comprised of Mitchell and Cameron, and their daughter Lily, a straight couple, comprised of Phil and Claire, and their three kids, Haley, Alex, and Luke, and a multicultural couple, which is comprised of Jay and Gloria, and their son Manny. These three types of families are being taped by a Dutch documentary crew who are using them for an upcoming reality-based television series due to air in The Netherlands.

    What the hell is the matter with you people?! I can't stand your behaviors one bit! Why the hell are you people whining about this show being on air when you dislike it? It is incompatible and selfish. Being incompatible and selfish is nothing to be proud of. If you disagree with me--THEN YOU EACH ARE URCHINS, CIPHERS, IGNORAMUSES, DUMB-ASSES, DUMB-BITCHES AND DUMB-SHITS!!! I don't have to insult, but you people are terribly out of control! And by the way, a "fan" is a person who has likes and encouragement to things that you adore, not a whatever-you-want criticism. Look up the word "fan" in the dictionary if you disbelieve me (where you'll find out that you shouldn't be writing any reviews on this show if you don't encourage watching it). And i'll tell you that this show will cancel when its ratings start to suffer; not when you spoiled brats want it to. If you disbelieve me, then you're wrong. FUCK YOU!!! YOU BRATS CAN READ ALL OF MY MESSAGES ON THE YOUTUBE VIDEOS!!! Besides that, I have seen this show before and I would watch anything except the youth stuff. And by the way, to those of you who go to church, you should know better. You should know that Jesus doesn't appreciate your behaviors. You ought to ask a pastor if you disbelieve me. And to brats from below, I'll say that there are people in this world who like this show. You have no right to criticize them. If you brats think that your own, rotten behaviors are more important than respecting other people--THEN YOU EACH OUGHT NOT TO BE A MEMBER OF THIS CLUB!!! NOW WHY DON'T YOU ALL TAKE YOUR NASTY NOSES OFF THIS SHOW AND ANY OTHER SHOWS THAT YOU DISLIKE--OR BETTER YET, HATE--AND FOCUS ON SHOWS THAT YOU ACTUALLY LIKE?!! IF YOU DON'T DO THAT, THEN YOU EACH OUGHT TO BE PUT INTO CATACOMBS ALIVE!!! And lastly, any of you who are stubborn enough to put your thumbs down on this review, keep writing negative reviews about this show and/or flag this review... FUCK YOU!!! I'M RIGHT; YOU'RE WRONG!!! PUTTING UP WITH THINGS THAT YOU DISLIKE OR EVEN HATE (INCLUDING THIS SHOW) WON'T KILL YOU!!!moreless
  • Still very nice and funny, but yes a bit tired ...

    Of course, the specialty of all the characters is mostly gone. We know all them. there is not much left to develop these characters. But they still face funny situations. So, the show is still pretty entertaining.

    With the additional bonus that the women are still mostly a joy to the eyes.

    I am not a huge fan that "gay" is squeezed into my life and entertainment everywhere now. But the way it is done in this show, I still enjoy.

    I admit - the funniest scene of this season was the imprinting of the ducklings. Particularly when Phil got them to finally follow him (because they thought he was Claire) and he did not even notice it and why. That was very funny.

    And the little details are still introduced with a lot of care and love - . the supermarket brand cereals tasting like sawdust.

    Phil's little pieces of "wisdom" are still great.

    And so on.

    I really don't know why and see how there can be so much hate for this out there. It is still much funnier than many other so-called comedies. But yes, as mentioned, it is getting a bit dusty and tired compared to its glorious beginnings. That does not mean it is now bad. Far from it.

    Somebody was stating that there is currently nothing more devastating on TV than this. I have to say that there is not much of comedies on TV that is better. Lots and lots of things on TV actually try to make me vomit - starting with all these so-called reality TV shows. One worse than the other (be it Dancing with the stars, paint wars, dance moms, American top model, all this nonsense about the Kardashians, .moreless
  • Please Cancel This Show

    I watch USA ALL day and night until Modern family comes on, LITERALLY. It's not entertaining, not funny, not good acting; there is NOTHING on TV more devastating as this show. I wish they would cancel it and add something the world could enjoy. I signed up on here just to write a review, and I've never wrote a review on/about anything! I absolutely cannot stand this show!

  • This show is horrible! How is keeping this show on Air Negative -10

    Somebody in Hollywood is doing someone a favor by keeping this show on TV. Look at the show ratings, this show should be canceled.
