Modern Family: Finally a new family sitcom you can love

If you haven’t yet discovered the hilariousness of ABC’s Modern Family you are doing yourself a grave injustice. The show is part sitcom part mockumentary and centres around Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill), his daughter Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen), and his son Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson). Jay is married to a younger sexy Columbian woman, Gloria (Sofía Vergara) who has a young son Manny (Rico Rodriguez). Mitchell and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) are a gay couple who have adopted a Vietnamese baby called Lily. The final family is married couple Claire and Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) who have three children. The standouts for me are probably the performances of Manny (Rico Rodgriguez) whose precocious behavior is belly achingly funny and Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) whose attempts at the ‘cool dad’ leave you wincing in embarrassment. Do yourself a favour and check it out.
