Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life changing prison can really be.
Told from the perspective of an unseen documentary filmmaker, the series offers an honest, often-hilarious perspective of family life. Parents Phil and Claire yearn for an honest, open relationship with their three kids. But a daughter who is trying to grow up too fast, another who is too smart for her own good, and a rambunctious young son make it challenging. Claire's dad, Jay, and his Latina wife, Gloria, are raising two sons together, but people sometimes believe Jay to be Gloria's father. Jay's gay son, Mitchell, and his partner, Cameron, have adopted a little Asian girl, completing one big -- straight, gay, multicultural, traditional -- happy family. Written by
Out of the parents on the show, only Ed, Sofia, Julie and Ty are parents in real life too. See more »
Mitchell and Cameron adopted a child from Vietnam. This is legally impossible as Vietnam's laws forbid a child to be adopted by single parents or same sex couples. They could still adopt the child illegally but then it would be impossible to bring it back to the States. See more »

God knows I couldn't love them more, but even the Kennedy's didn't get together this often.

At the beginning of each episode, the actors' names appear on screen in order of their character's ages. (Oldest to youngest) See more »
Early on this was one of my favorites. I enjoyed the characters except for Gloria as portrayed by the untalented SV.
Sometimes Ty Burrells' character was annoying but I now find him to be a buffoon and unwatchable - and even Eric's character has become annoying. The last show about them thinking they could be Hip Hop Dancers was beyond the pale. They don't know what to do with the kid's characters- especially the son -. I can bear Manny for a while but in short doses
This show has seen better days and what I find especially annoying is how the producers dupe the viewing public with a " new season" One new shoe every so often stuck in with endless reruns- and this is a common practice these days
with many programs.
