Friday Funday

I love Modern Family. I really think it is one of the 5 best shows on TV right now. It is well written, well acted, and it has a good balance of comedy and quiet moments. And it treats families w/respect.

As far as the comedy goes, it is one of the only shows out there that recognizes the comedic value of silence. Of letting the moment happen instead of pointing to it and saying "LOOK HOW FUNNY THIS IS!!!!!!" It doesn't foist a laugh track on the viewers, which lets the audience decide what it wants to laugh at. And it is showing growth in the characters, which is completely unexpected in a sitcom.

Plus, it has this...

God bless America. And Ed O'Neill is a lucky, lucky bastard.
