    It is hard to create a good pilot because you essentially have to do two things: you have to introduce America to these new characters and you have to create an episode that is so funny and memorable that it gets viewers to come back. This episode did introduce us to the characters, but I would not exactly call it funny and memorable. Ths scenes and jokes were very predictable and not exactly groundbreaking.

    Modern Family is a nice throwback to the family comedies of the 80's and 90's, minus the laughtrack, and thankfully the show gets better after this episode.
