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.

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!

If you watch this show and can't manage to laugh or even crack a smile, then I recommend a sense of humor transplant.

This show is hilarious. Great timing on all the jokes. The gay couple is always funny as hell. When Phil gets hit by the car and yells "oh no!", ha ha ha. I rewound it 10 times. My wife and I love the show, Looking forward to buying season 2

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!

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.

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.
