Saturday TV Special: Modern Family

By s. Saturday, December 31, 2011 ,
Plot: Modern Family employs an ensemble cast. The show revolves around three families that are interrelated through Jay Pritchett and his children, Claire Dunphy and Mitchell Pritchett. Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill), the patriarch, is in a relationship with a younger woman, fiery Gloria (Sofía Vergara), a passionate mother from Colombia, who, with help from Jay, raises her son, incredibly mature for his age Manny (Rico Rodriguez). Claire (Julie Bowen) is a homemaker controlling mom married to goofy Phil (Ty Burrell) a real estate agent and self-professed cool dad; they have three children: Haley (Sarah Hyland), the stereotypical teenager, Alex (Ariel Winter), the smart middle child and Luke ("There is street smart, there is book smart...and there's Luke") (Nolan Gould), the offbeat only son. Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), a lawyer, and his partner Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) have adopted a Vietnamese baby, Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons).
Structure: Each episodes follows crazy and hilarious events and misunderstandings that befall on the family but in the end they always find a way out with the help from their loved ones.
Verdict: One of the most acclaimed and funniest shows on TV right now.
What makes it so great? The warm and optimistic endings to each of the episodes, funny characters and great cameos including Edward Norton as a musician and has-been.
Whom you may recognize: Ed O'Neill from iconic "Married with Children", Julie Bowen from "Lost" and Eric Stonestreet who recently showed up in "American Horror Story" as a man scared of urban legends.
Who's behind it? The creators of "Wings" and "Frasier"
Who will like it? Fans of good shows entire family can enjoy - reportedly it's president Obama's favorite show that he watches with his whole family.
When and where? ABC, Wednesdays.
