media love: modern family

Modern Family is a new show that premiered last Wednesday on ABC. Let me just start by saying that it's ridiculously hilarious. It follows three unique families (who are all related): Ed O'Neill's (aka Al-freakin-Bundy!) character Jay is the patriarch of the family. He is married to a much younger and more attractive Latin woman, Gloria, who has an 11 year old boy. Jay has two grown kids of his own. His daughter, Claire, is married to her husband, Phil, and they have 3 children ranging in age from pre-preteen to teen. His son, Mitchell, is in a same sex relationship with his life partner, Cameron, and they have just adopted a child from Vietnam. While the emphasis of the show is about the dynamics of a modern family, the three romantic relationships within this family each have their own significant value and important message about love.

So, if you're looking for a new show to become addicted to this fall, try watching Modern Family tomorrow night at 9pm. Until then, check out this preview...
(FYI: if you'd like to watch the pilot yourself, don't watch this preview--it basically shows most of the first episode in 3 minutes. If you're ready to watch the second episode tomorrow night, go ahead and watch this clip.)

I agree. I thought it was hilarious! Shooting the kid with the dart gun?! I laughed so hard I cried. If anybody missed it, you can watch it on Fancast.
