Modern Family

I want to talk about an American TV series named Modern Family which is funny and warming.Modern Family is a comedy about an unusual and diversified  families of the 21st Century.The stories are told as a mockumentary (a type of film or television show in witch fictitious events are presented in documentary format).And it records the daily life of the middle-class American family.There are three families into the series: Jay's Second family,Phil and Clair's family and Cameron and Mitchell's family.Jay has married with Gloria  ,is the second marriage for the couple.There is a big gap between their age.Gloria is Manny's mother, and they're from Colombia.They speak Spanish and English ,she screams a lot.And Manny is Jay's stepson,and Jay and Gloria has a little boy now.Cameron and Mitchell  is a gay couple with an adopted child.They  never fail to make the audience laugh. Phil and Clair is a white couple which have 2 daughters and 1 son.There are five main kids on this show. They all have different personalities. Haley is the pretty one who is not very smart and relies on her looks to get ahead in life. Her sister Alex, is the smart one in the family. She feels like no one understands her because no one is at her intelligence level.Luke and Manny are the same age but Manny is a 12 year old stuck in a 30 year old's body while Luke doesn’t want to grow up. Lily was adopted by Cameron and Mitchell, she is witty, cute and keeps her dads on their toes.

Modern Family is about 3 unique couples that make up one big family.Together they go through different aspects of life and in the end of each episode they reflect on how the only thing that really matters is family.Modern Family takes a different approach to the traditional family.The three families that this show revolves around are not like the typical families we would know.There is a couple with a huge age gap as well as a gay couple with an adopted Vietnamese child.Even though there is such a diversity in the characters they all love each other like families should and lean on each other for support.Modern Family shows the viewers that it is ok to not be a normal family.I appreciate that there is a show that can bring together all of these abnormal couples and make us laugh at their everyday lives.It also shows what it means to love your family unconditionally even if you do not agree with the choices they make.

I've been following this series since 3 years.At the beginning i thought it is just a hilarious TV show,but the more episodes i followed,the more feeling i had.The reason why i like watching this series is because i think each character has their own weakness like selfish.But those weakness cant affect the harmony of the big family.Maybe you will like one of these characters just because of his or her defects.And that makes the whole series much more real.This show is definitely worth watching and tasting.Although some details or some concepts from lives may not knock you out in this series,but the emotion contained by this series must make you feel resonant.I think everyone of us can see ourselves through these character.And i think the director must be a person that is very passionate and insightful about live,otherwise he wont be able to shoot such a great TV series.I hope you will enjoy this series!
