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
