      I am a firm believer that television has gone down in quality, especially where comedy is concerned. More often than not, ratings show that the most popular shows in America are the reality shows that ridicule one celebrity or another and sitcoms are nothing more than a combination of overused, incredibly boring jokes that we all know and recognize. Women do not like sex, blondes are dumb, and the doofy guy will always get the hot girl. Not much new material has been accumulated in the last twenty

      years or so. That is why ABC hit a definite home run with their wonderful show, Modern Family. Following in the footsteps of the Office, the show is formatted as a fake documentary, which eliminates the annoying and unnecessary laugh track. The idea is simple, a large family, sectioned off into mini-families, that are comprised of non-traditional couples and kids. While simple, this is a gold mine of comedy and quirky situations that continue to unfold week after week.

      There are of course some comfortable fallbacks where jokes are ...


      • concerned, however, overall this is a pleasant surprise to any viewer tired of the same old. Take for example Cam and Mitch, the extremely gay duo raising their adopted Vietnamese daughter, poking fun of their stereotype by painting a giant Sistine Chapelesque mural of themselves on their daughter’s nursery wall. Or Phil, member of the more traditional sector of the family, singing the rhymes from High School musical to impress his unimpressed kids with his coolness. These will of course ring some familiar bells, yet they are also
        full of that extra clever zing and are a pleasure to watch.

        Standouts include the above-mentioned Phil, portrayed flawlessly by Ty Burrell, whose sweetness and naivete is always matched by his wife’s sharp with and rigidity and Manny, played by Rico Rodriguez, who is a boy far too old for his young age, a tactic that will have you rolling with amusement.

        Now in its second season, Modern Family is sure to last as it has both mass appeal and the possibility to appealing to even the snobbiest of comedy lovers.
