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.
