Product Description

Winner of Six Emmy® Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Modern Family is a refreshingly hilarious look at what it means to be a family in today’s hectic, unpredictable world. While fledgling fathers Cameron and Mitchell struggle with learning the ropes of parenthood, long-time parents Claire and Phil try to keep the spice in their marriage amid the chaos of raising three challenging children. Meanwhile, family patriarch, Jay, has more than his hands full with his sexy, spirited wife, Gloria, and her precocious son. Still, no matter the size, shape or situation, family always comes first in this laugh-out-loud, critically acclaimed hit.

Amazon.com

It's hard to predict whether Modern Family will end up being one of those iconic sitcoms that sticks around for six or seven seasons, maintaining the same immaculate formulation of pace and first-class execution before it realizes that it needs to quit while it's still on top. Sometimes young cast members are a problem for shows like this; their growing up doesn't always reflect kindly on the maturing concept. But in the case of Modern Family it's pretty easy to imagine the child actors continuing their roles into and out of child- and teenager-hood while the concept remains intact, giving the crack writing staff increasingly diverse opportunities to explore the dynamics of the typical dysfunctions of an atypical modern family. With a slew of Emmys under its belt, the show has settled into a delightfully familiar formula of checking in on stories unfolding in three separate households, with an underlying theme providing an amusing connection and "interview" segments bolstering the mock-documentary conceit. To its credit, Modern Family's use of the sitcom style that originated with the original UK version of The Office remains a clever device without being overly gimmicky. Phil and Claire Dunphy (Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen) and their kids Haley, Alex, and Luke (Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould) seem to be the most normal, but in this world they are anything but. Claire's brother Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and his partner Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) are more lovey-dovey than ever as they continue to raise their adopted daughter and navigate the minefield of personal and familial interaction. Prickly patriarch Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill), Claire and Mitchell's dad, seems to have mellowed somewhat as he basks in or is bewildered by the devotion of his trophy-ish young Colombian wife Gloria (Sofía Vergara) and the odd behavior of her precocious pubescent son Manny (Rico Rodriguez). As in season one, famous-face guest stars abound, with the plotlines and dialogue complementing each other in skillful consort. The snappy tone provokes bursts of hilarity that punctuate the consistently funny thematic structure running throughout each episode.

There's an increasing emphasis on modern in the Modern Family frame of reference as technology factors into the conceptual arc of the series. The family members not only have dynamic interaction with each other, they also share multilayered relationships with their cell phones, laptops, and social networking activities. That their encounters with technology are ubiquitous and often integral to individual gags or the impetus to plot threads is yet another way the show connects with its audience. For all the zaniness, there's also a deft aura of reality that knows how to keep the extended clan a genuinely identifiable nuclear unit that faces many of the same situations as a real modern family. Following up the nice batch of extras included on the season-one set, the varied package of features here provides some terrific added value. There's the standard gag reel of outtakes, etc., as well as a compilation of deleted scenes on each disc. It's fun to watch the different takes and extended versions of confessional and interview line-reads from cast members, especially the expertly timed variations and riffs from Ty Burrell. The featurettes are a mixed bag. They include a real-time table read of the episode "Strangers on a Treadmill," taped in front of an audience; a behind-the-scenes tour of the house sets with the show's production designer; an interview segment with cocreator Steve Levitan; an analysis of how the show makes special use of holidays to drive an episode; and an on-set visit from an Oprah Winfrey Show crew (if not from Oprah herself). The presentation bodes well for future season sets, which will likely include more backstage elements along with many more episodes of what has quickly become a classic of modern TV. --Ted Fry

5.0 out of 5 stars No Sophomore Slump Here! September 20, 2011
By Barry
Format:DVD
When "Modern Family" premiered in the fall of 2009, it was a breath of fresh air. An incredibly brilliant, well written and acted series depicting family life of the Pritchett/Dunphy clan. It was one of the best things I had seen on network TV in years. From start to finish, the debut season was an instant classic, and the show deservedly got the attention from critics and award shows. But then came the obvious question. Can they do it again? Was the show a one season wonder? Would they suffer from the ever dreadful 'sophomore slump'? When season two premiered in the fall of 2010, it was apparent right away, especially with the first few episodes, that any fears or doubt were instantly washed away. Season 2 premiered as strong as ever, and rolled out 24 high quality episodes. But first....

A little catch up. The series features Pritchett family patriarch, Jay (the fantastic Ed'o'Neill), who is married to a much younger columbian woman named Gloria (Sofia Vergara), and step-father to Manny. His daughter Claire (Julie Bowen) is married to Phil (Ty Burrell), and they have three children, Haley, Luke, and Alex. Jay's son Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) lives with his partner, Cameron (the hilarious Eric Stonestreet) and their adopted daughter, Lily.

Season 2 got things off on the right foot. The season premiere, "The Old Wagon", was a strong welcome back that showcased everything that makes the show so great. Humor and heart. The episode dealt with Phil finally deciding to get rid of the old family car, but not without one last trip down memory lane. One of the season's best episodes for sure. Next up is "The Kiss". The show had had some controvery surrounding the gay characters of Mitchell and Cameron never kissing.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Show is the Best Thing I've Seen on TV in Years! February 24, 2011
By M. Gray
Format:DVD
I cannot get over how funny this show is. There has been times when I have laughed so hard at these guys. I love them! ABC has aired a wonderful show and season two has proven to be just as effective as season one. I look forward to this every week! And it does, in a way, remind me of my own family. Can't wait to keep laughing at these guys. Too funny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this show! November 18, 2010
Format:DVD
If you watch this show and can't manage to laugh or even crack a smile, then I recommend a sense of humor transplant.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great gift for a Modern Family fan! March 19, 2011
Format:DVD
I knew my wife loved Modern Family, but I also knew she didn't really start watching until near the end of the first season. Amazon had the whole first season on DVD, and I thought, why not see if she likes this as a birthday gift? Probably one of the best gift decisions I've ever made. Except even though she watches the show religiously on TV, I also know she's going to EXPECT to get Season 2 on DVD as soon as it comes out. Amazon, please keep me in mind when it does!

5.0 out of 5 stars Let the good times roll April 16, 2012
By Todd
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first season of Modern Family was hilarious. Sometimes one worries if the humor will continue into the second season. The writers for this sitcom have not let us down - they continue to write funny plots, many of which also have morals or other take home messages. I applaud the producers of this sitcom for what they are doing to bring good humor and family values back into the home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best sit-com since Arrested Development May 10, 2011
Format:DVD
For those who know t.v. serials, most would agree that the king of sit-coms in recent history was "Arrested Development". But that King has died. Long live the new King--Modern Family. It is rather ironic that the casting includes an icon of possibly the worst sit-com of all times, Ed O'Neill, from "Married With Children." As much as that show sucked, appealing to the lowest common denominator of newly-pubescent adolescents, Ed has redeemed himself with finally a mature role as the politically incorrect and curmudgeonly patriarch in Modern Family. The casting is ideal. The scripts are savvy. The dialogue is crisp. And the humor is effervescent. The only slight criticism may be that they risk "gaying-up" the gay couple a bit too much. Granted, it is funny, but it's a fine line between character and caricature. The limp wrists, swishing and flamboyance is sometimes a little over the top and becoming too predictable. The chemistry however, with all the character's is sublime. I literally DVR every episode, watch it live, and then rewatch the DVR version twice. It's like a shot of humor-cocaine injected directly into my funny bone. If you like laugh out loud, tears down you cheeks, biting humor with a dose of even pathos on some occasions, this is the best sit-com on planet earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars SO FUN! December 6, 2010
By Nykole

This show is just the funniest ever. I agree that if you can't laugh at this show, you should really up your medication. We love watching it over again. Can't find more fun in front of the boob tube.

I purchased this series for $8.99 from amazon.com during the Black Friday deals week. It includes the entire second season and a few extras (though not many).

The case is slim, and the discs all stay put pretty well. I'm happy with the quality of packaging. Now onto the show.

I watched the second season originally from the local library (yes my library has many copies of this season), though it took me a few weeks to get bumped up on the request list. I had recently finished season one and was craving more of the delightful comedy of this series.

Though season one may have been a little more fun, there is plenty of hilarity during this season. For those who don't know, this series was created by the team that brought Frasier to us. Quality shows both. The writing is excellent and the actors play well to their talents and stay true to their characters.

What this show is about is making odd family and lifestyle situations work in a crazy and fast paced world. The show is actually set up as a Scandanavian reality show. I don't know if this was ever mentioned on the actual show, but it is mentioned on the website and mentioned during the commentary in season one. I think it was for Norwegian television. They wanted a reality show showing a slice of American family life. So that is why you have the periodic asides where family members talk to the camera, or the occasional sideways glance at the camera during normal scenes.

If you haven't seen the show, you should probably catch a few of the early episodes of season one, but it is not required. There aren't really any spoilers and each episode pretty much stands alone with few story arcs carrying over to multiple episodes.
