Product Description

Join TVas #1 family for another hilarious and refreshingly original season of Modern Family, winner of eleven EmmyA Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series two years in a row! As the extended Pritchett/Dunphy clan faces an uproariously unpredictable array of family vacations, holiday hassles, troublesome in-laws, and surprising secrets, they still somehow manage to thrive together as one big, loving family a even as they drive each other absolutely insane! Season Three features a hilarious gag reel and never-before-seen couch confessions that will make you laugh out loud and remind you why viewers and critics alike have fallen in love with this thoroughly Modern Family.

With a Golden Globe and a third consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Comedy series, multiple-year Emmy wins for cast members Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet, and Ty Burrell (Claire Dunphy, Cameron Tucker, Phil Dunphy), as well as trophies for writing, directing, and technical achievements in its corner (not to mention numerous kudos from guild and critics groups), Modern Family is squarely on track for the TV sitcom hall of fame. A less glamorous indicator of its own self-assuredness is a contract dispute between ABC and the ensemble cast for more per-episode money that briefly held up the production schedule of the fourth season. But in this season-three set, the series' firm footing is readily apparent without any hints of the bogged-down sense that sometimes befalls a show's writing staff or its swelled-head stars when they get too comfortable on their laurels. That said, some of the ingenuity and off-center originality that made its comic sense so truly hilarious occasionally falls into established routines of structural technique. But overall, the wackiness and absurdist, based-in-reality farce of an exploded nuclear family facing the contemporary world through the perspective of easily relatable family situations remains on solid ground. The impeccable timing of the dialogue is spot on, whether the pleasantly thin plots concern a teenage pool party, a bid by Claire to join the town council, Mitchell and Cam's (Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Stonestreet) efforts to adopt another child, a family trip to Disneyland (nice tie-in, ABC), or a creaky Jay making attempts to capitalize on Gloria's (Sofía Vergara) considerable stature as a trophy wife (she's happy to oblige). Ty Burrell's precision delivery and physical comedy skills remain especially noteworthy as the airheaded yet sensible Phil Dunphy continues to refine the comic shtick that Burrell's character believes makes him the world's coolest dad and sexiest husband. As hard as he tries, Claire and Phil's three kids Haley, Alex, and Luke (Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould) aren't always buying it. And Rico Rodriguez as the uptight, older-than-his-13-years Manny continues to steal many of scenes, whether he's chaperoning a gang of high school seniors or acting the connoisseur of a five-star resort. The show continues to feature a lively clutch of high-wattage guest stars who pop up unexpectedly, including Tim Blake Nelson, Jennifer Tilly, Greg Kinnear, Bobby Cannavale, Ellen Barkin, Ernie Hudson, and Leslie Mann. Barry Corbin appears as a foil for Jay as Cam's crusty rancher father, and David Cross brings his maniacal leer and subversive energy to a few episodes as Claire's nemesis in local government.

Like the other season sets, volume three contains a bunch of interesting extras, with behind-the-scenes looks at the company's trip to Disneyland and the Wyoming dude ranch that is the backdrop for the double-episode season premiere. There's a walk-around day-in-the-life segment with Ty Burrell that continues to open up the set and creative process for us, as well as a similar bit that focuses on the Modern Family kids. As in the other sets, there's lots of extended "interview" footage of the characters' confessionals into the fourth wall, deleted and extended material, and the requisite gag reel that's best appreciated by devoted fans. But then when it comes to Modern Family, even the most casual viewers quickly develop a taste for the funny, fast-paced show that continues to be a highlight of the current TV spectrum. --Ted Fry

Show is completely amazing. Honestly the best thing on tv today. Phil and Cameron are my favorites, but that is not saying the rest of the cast isn't brilliant because they most definitely are. Very very well written show. Not one episode is a disappointment. Hope there are many more seasons to come.

i first learned about this series when it won the emmy for best sitcom in its first season. it has been a big emmy winner ever since. if you are new to this show, it involves an extended family living in LA and their adventures in coping with modern life. it is laugh out loud funny. the escapades they get into on a weekly basis are something that are so everyday but played for maximum hilarity. a big winner often cannot keep up quality from season to season but this show is the exception. the third season is every bit as good as the first. when i first started out watching, the gay couple made up my favorite characters. although i still like them a lot, that has now been eclipsed by the very solid performance by ty burrell as phil the realtor married to claire. he won the emmy for his performance last year and fully deserved it. in the season closer to season three we got to see phil react to his daughter's announcement to she was going to live with her boyfriend in an apartment. utter mayhem ensued! i can't recommend this show highly enough and i am sorry i cannot watch it again until fall.

This show is hilariously funny. We couldn't stop watching. We missed the first two seasons and caught up by buying the DVDs. Our kids suggested the show to us. I don't think I've ever laughed as hard at a sitcom. The family is just dysfunctional enough to funny, but not so much as to be condescending and they, in a comical way, broach a lot of controversial subjects. We're going to watch them all again and we hardly ever watch reruns of TV shows until about 10 years time has gone by.

I have been a HUGE Modern Family fan since its beginning in 2009. It never fails to deliver gut-aching laughs on a weekly basis. All of the characters are relatable and are extremely well acted by a SUPERB cast. I have introduced dozens of people to this show and it is now many of my friends favorite. When introducing the show, I usually start off by saying a standout on the show is Ty Burrell as Phil Dunphey but then I also add that Eric Stonestreet is amazing as Cam. Then I must add that, oh, Julie Bowen plays a perfect crazy mom, Claire Dunphy and Sofia Vergara plays an amazingly extravagant and always hilarious Gloria. My friends usually end up saying "So basically what you're saying is that the whole cast is amazing?" And my answer is always yes. And that's what makes this show so perfect. I totally believe every single actor is the character they are portraying.

The other thing that makes this show the best show on television is the writing. The writing is what wins this show its Outstanding Comedy Emmy every year. The writing is smart, witty, outrageous and perfect. It enters about 10 episodes a year to the Emmy's for consideration in the Writing for a Comedy Series category and won its first two years. This year, the third year, it was snubbed in the category, most likely because there were split votes between separate MF episodes.

I can't explain how much this show means to me. Whenever I need to have my spirits lifted, I simply put in my Disc Two of Season Two and watch "Caught in the Act", my favorite episode and the episode that won Steve Levitan his second Emmy for Writing of a Comedy Series.

I believe EVERYONE should watch and enjoy this show as much as I do. Season 3 is exceptional and sure to take home the big Emmy once again. I can't wait for September because with it comes my birthday, the season 4 premiere of MF and the release of the Season 3 DVD! All always highlights in my September!

This show is the most hilarious sitcom I have ever seen. My husband and I laugh so hard everytime we watch an episode. When I have a bad day at work - I, like others, watch an episode of this so I can laugh. Always works. I love Cam and Mitchell and really all the cast are Super Duper Funny! I can't wait to buy Season 3 and watch Season 4.

This was the first season I really started to watch Modern Family and I am glad that I did. Unfortunately it was about half of the way through the season. Thus, for me this was a great set to grab and to watch, not only because I missed half of the season, but because it was hilarious! Now that I went back and watched this season, I can see that I will be looking for the first two seasons either in my local library or in a local store or online as this series is great! The writing is funny, and the characters are so memorable! The Blu-ray has some great Bonus Features on it that bring you behind the scenes to really get to see some funny family interviews as well as gag reels (my favorite) among other things. If you are already a fan, this is a great set to have at home, if you are just watching for the first time, you can definitely jump right in and enjoy it and catch up with the past seasons in the time to come!
