I love the Tv-show Modern Family. It almost always makes me laugh and I think the show has amazing actors and actresses. I have to admit that I follow most of them on Instagram and Twitter.
Modern Family is about three families that together make a big family. In the first family, we have Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill) and his wife Gloria (Sophia Vergara) and Gloria’s son Manny (Rico Rodriguez), from an earlier marriage. Jay owns his own closet company and Gloria is a stay at home mom. The Second family consists of; Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) and her husband Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell). And their three children: Haley (Sarah Hyland), Alex (Ariel Winters) and Luke (Nolan Gould). Claire is a stay at home mom and Phil is a realtor. The last family is; gay couple Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet), and their daughter Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons). Mitchell is a lawyer and Cam is home with Lily.
Claire and Mitchell are children of Jay from a previous marriage. And the show is about what this big family gets up to. They are very close to each other and spend a lot of time together. Jay is struggling with the fact that his son Mitchell is gay. He loves his son, but he is old school and trying to get up to speed with modern times. Claire is struggling with the fact that her father’s new wife Gloria is younger than her. And Gloria is trying to fit in with her new family.
Down below is a promo from the Modern Family’s first episode:
My husband and I are actually rewatching the series right now on Netflix, where the first 8 seasons are available in Sweden at least.
Some of my favourite quotes from the movie:
“Family is family. Whether it’s the one you start out with, the one you end up with, or the family that you gain along the way.” ~ Gloria Delgado-Pritchett
“Why do I have to watch a French movie, I didn’t do anything wrong.” ~ Phil Dunphy
We all struggle with limitations. Some we’re willing to accept, and some we’re not. It’s never too late to grow in life.” ~ Jay Pritchett
“What qualifies someone as a hero? Obviously, a hero has to be someone we respect. A person we look up to. A person who is generous of spirit. Who’s willing to grow and learn. Maybe it’s the person you love most in the world. Or the guy who makes the most out of life no matter what anyone thinks. For me though, the hero of my family is my family, because of who we are together.” ~ Manny Delgado
“There are dreamers and there are realists in this world. You’d think the dreamers would find the dreamers, and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not, the opposite is true. You see, the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists, well, without the dreamers, they might never get off the ground.” ~ Cameron Tucker
Have you watched Modern Family? What did you think? If not, I highly recommend you watch it, at least if you like comedy.
And I also wanted to share the gag reel from season 1:
