Season 1 of Modern Famly Is On DVD

I know, I have said it many times but spending time in front of a TV for me means that the show better be really worth it. There aren't many shows I will dedicate time to. Life is short and I have too much living to do to sit in front of TV for hours on end however...that being said....I love me some Modern Family.

If you have not watched this mockumentary yet, you seriously need to grab this DVD.

Fox Connect Description

Come join the family for the hilarious and critically acclaimed breakout hit of the year! Featuring an all-star cast led by Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vargara, Julie Bowen, and Ty Burrell, Modern Family takes a refreshing and funny view of what it means to raise a family in this hectic day and age. Multi-cultural relationships, adoption, and same-sex marriage are just a few of the timely issues faced by the show’s three wildly-diverse broods. No matter the size or shape, family always comes first in this hilariously “modern” look at life, love, and laughter.

In 2010, it won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, as well as two other Emmy Awards, Outstanding Supporting Actor in Comedy Series for Eric Stonestreet, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd.

Now that I have all the details out of the way, let's move on.

What I Can Tell You:

This is by far, one of the best shows on TV. It is done very well for a family comedy.

We have Jay (Ed O'Neill) and his stunning, much younger wife Gloria (SofĂ­a Vergara)who has a son named Manny. I was a big Married with Children fan and love Ed O'Neill so I was excited to watch. Sofia is so smoking hot, she could turn woman gay and Manny is like a little old soul.

Claire(Julie Bowen) is Jay's daughter and she is married to Phil(Ty Burrell). They have 3 children and the dynamics of this household cracks me up. Phil really thinks he is intuned with everyone, cool dad, understanding husband but he is adorably clueless.

The next household is Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), Jay's son who lives with his partner Cameron(Eric Stonestreet) and their adopted Vietnamese baby, Lily. This couple is too funny.

Why This Show Works: The writers are witty. The actors deliver perfectly and there is nothing like this on TV. I love how the actors turn to the camera and give face! I love the couch sessions peppered through the episodes and I love how diverse the show is. Hysterically funny and they touch on all topics.

This is the kind of show you will watch in re-run and on DVD. This is the kind of show you will discuss episodes in detail with your friends and family.

In my opinion, one of the best shows on TV.

Thanks to Fox Connect for hooking me up with a complimentary DVD set of Season 1.

    I absolutely love this show. I am always LMAO in every episode.

  2. This is one of my favorite shows too. I think it's hilarious even if it's not Married With Children. I've been watching from the start.
