Is the TV show 'Modern Family' one of those shows that we're "supposed" to like??

    I've watched it a handful of times now... And, I must admit, I don't get the hype...Since it has Al Bundy in it, I was hoping for something a little more irreverent & clever.....But it appears to be a very pablum show....and, I sense that the people who make it are convinced that it's super edgy & hip....But, in reality, it's very dull & "safe".......It reminds of something one might see at a community theater in San Francisco, produced & written by an all-gay cast...


    thumbs down for me :(

    On another note, I am finding "The Middle" to be mildly entertaining (although, it does borrow heavily from the "Married With Children" premise)... It's done well enough to keep me watching, for now..

    I watched the first three seasons and I think its one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. I don't think its edgy. I just think its funny.

    i've watched it...its now a show thats full of itself. the writers read way too many reviews of how awesome the are...its over. al bundy & married with children however is now more funnier than it was during its run...that show just continues to grow on you. it will never be dated or irrelevant. it remains way ahead of its time.

    I've always wondered what happens to a fart when you shit in a bag. It can't just go into the bag, can it?

    It seems like you'd inflate your sack in nothing flat after mexican food. And how does explosive diarrhea work when you shit in a sack?
