Hip, Colorful, and Beautiful

What a beautiful series. Gregory Nava is a genius, and PBS

should be given an award for taking it on. It blends a culturally

traditional undercurrent with a modern and hip style, and utilizes

interesting filming techniques that wraps you into the story. This

series is vibrant with culture, color, and life, and can sometimes

be staggeringly emotional.

Heartfelt, eccentric, and sometimes rib crackingly funny, "American

Family" brings a very misunderstood side of American life to the

limelight and paints an intriguingly entertaining representation of a

dysfunctional yet incredibly loving family.... and does it brilliantly.
