i love this show. every character is just totally top notch. with the exception of one. unfotunately this character is so unbelievably overacted and badly executed that his performsnce alone takes away from what is most probably brilliant writing, up until the point where this actor gets his hands o it that is, at which point it becomes murderously irritating and annoying. the character/actor i speak of is of course the manny character. where they found this actor i have no idea, judging by the standard though i would imagine it was probably a very poor primary school nativity play. you can almost see him mouthing the words of the other actors and looking for his cue he is that bad. i have no idea how someone so undoubtedly untalented could find their way onto a set with some of the finest comedic performances ive ever seen anywhere. the only answer i can think of is that someone owed someone a very big favour. it is cringworthingley bad. how has no one spotted this 4 seasons in? he is by far and away the worst actor, child or otherwise, ive ever seen. it is so bad i dont think it can actually be called "acting", its just quite literally speaking lines. please please please get rid of this kid. if the show is this good with him involved, then just imagine how good it would be without his leaden acting dragging it down.

Can anyone explain to a non-USA person why the airing of this (awesome) show seems to be so sporadic? I've noticed this with American shows (like Big Bang Theory, Arrow etc) that they seem to get interrupted a lot - rather than being a linear progression. Why is that?

This is a superb show primarily because it understands its role within television. It doesn't take itself too seriously, which is why it features so much metareference, parody and satire. It doesn't bother with being too logical, trying to weave some intricate dramatic plot or being bogged down by the shackles of trying to explain the single-camera confessionals format. Like Parks and Rec, it realizes that breaking the fourth wall and allowing for character-camera interaction opens up an abundance of comedic avenues. Juggling three distinct families properly without bending to focus groups and gravitating around one character (Sheldon from TBBT, anyone?) gives the show a diverse pool of comedy to draw from. And not allowing Gloria's screeching, Claire's housewifey nagging or Cam's petulant self-absorption from becoming annoying -- I don't know how they did it. Knowing its role and not taking itself too seriously allows Modern Family to meld together all the elements of good comedies into a fun, light-hearted pleasure to watch.

Is it just me or is this season so not as funny as it used to be. Did they loose some writers???

I adore Mitchel's ever so slight sense of comedy. His reactions sometimes are just hilarious. Love this entire show 10/10.

This show isn't like the other comedy shows I've watched. With other shows I laugh in my head but with this one I'm literally laughing out LOUD. It's really good!!! All the characters are amazing but my favorite is Gloria. I literally can't get her voice outta my head XD

this show is absolute genius FULL STOP. every episode is pure comedy gold. the characters are just brilliant, except one. i dont know if its just me maybe its all in my head but as every episode gets better the manny character just gets more and more irritating. his acting is embarrassingly wooden, his comic timing is none existent, his performances look like they came out of a primary school nativity play. maybe its just that everyone else is SO brilliant but i really think its time to discuss sending manny the way of the TV show bording school!!!

the great part of this show is that all the characters have their own unique personality and way of being funny, and its funny to see them come/clash together.

I dont usually dig on shows like this, but this is great. its funny without being to racey, obscene or outrageous and family friendly without being too corny.

This one is one of my favorites :) I remember when I first saw it :) I was shocked to see Ed O'Neil got old :) Because last show I watched with him was Married with children :) It just reminds me of that time flies so fast :) Anyway, my favorite characters are Jay, Gloria, Phill, Manny and Luke :) Love them :)

Funny show, but the mockumentary style is a bizarre choice and not done properly. It plays like a sitcom, i.e Arrested Development, but with documentary elements that don't really work. Watchable though.
