The household hilarity continues with the Eighth Season of Modern Family, winner of five Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series! It all starts with the Dunphy clan wrapping up a Big Apple adventure. Back at home, Claire struggles to keep order at Pritchett’s Closets while Phil and Jay go into business together. Gloria’s hot sauce business heats up, as Cam and Mitchell deal with their maturing tween, Lily. Meanwhile, Manny and Luke fumble through their senior year of high school. Three big, happy families equal one huge season of laughs!

The episodes in this season were excellent and I expect that will continue as usual in the new seasons this Fall. What makes the show worth watching is feel good. One gets to follow the joy of these three families, the heartbreak, the sadness and everything in between. The feeling of being close is what the secret of this show is. Knowing that even the most perfect of families not are perfect, knowing that families who are non-traditional can be happy, makes this show both funny and meaningful. We all recognise ourselves in the characters, struggling to get their daily lives together. The key to this is how the script is perfect for each character. That makes it feel really realistic. The timing of the comments in the show is the finishing touch.

Final Thoughts

Modern Family Season 8 does not disappoint and the series continues to entertain and I completely enjoys the antics of one of the funniest blended families on television.
