Modern Family

Modern Family being critically acclaimed, loved by the fans and even buzzed on award shows in its earlier stages was due to the hard and fast humor that swiftly resulted into genuine emotions on the screen and the projection of some of the most complicated and delicate relationships like a father (Burrell) going the distance and pushing the boundaries for his son (Gould) which was shown in some mesmerizing semi-comic sequences.

But, as it started aging on screen the content grew thinner but still some of the cast's acting made it worth a while which unfortunately started to fade off too resulting into an exhausting experience and petty humor where the viewers are just waiting for the makers to attain the aspired closure. Being a prime victim of this disease has failed on delivering any loose end of a thread for the audience to hold on to for the forthcoming experience; the mundane household and work day issues that it used to thrive on, seems like a myth, now.

The performance is convincing by the cast like Sofia Vergara and Ed O'Neill whilst the show stealers are Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen but after a certain point, it's just depressing to watch them work so hard on so little. The nature to attain a full circle in an episode has always been its strength but lately this has been resulted into shallow and manipulative emotional drama where the line drawn is from an amateur writing skills that itches throughout the course.

A Game Of Chicken

It is not funny as the genre asks it to be: and yet it is one of my favourite of this season. And only because it is simply smooth. It slides down your throat unnoticeable. It also digs into one of the best lost tracks of the show and that is the equation between Burrel and Gould that has moved a step forward.
