Having now seen all of the first four seasons and most of what has been coming out this fifth one, I can say that "Modern Family" is indeed a funny show, at times even an genius one. That makes it all the harder how sometimes there are those miserable episodes that just don't impress--but at least the quality ones are stellar.
|Phil Dunphy is probably my favorite character on the show.
"Modern Family" is a great show, even if it sometimes will drag a bit. I differ from many in thinking that it becomes its best around the 3rd season and has been maintaining that stride to current day, but you can always start from the beginning of the series if you haven't viewed it and want to see for yourself who is right. With its mixture of the occasional 5-star episode, and a bit more 3-star ones than I would like, I would say Modern Family still manages a very impressive 4 out of 5 stars from me.
