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
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 »
Family is family. Whether it's the one you start out with, the one you end up with, or the family that you gain along the way.

At the beginning of each episode, the actors' names appear on screen in order of their character's ages. (Oldest to youngest) See more »
really good show!! better than friends and all other comedy shows!!
Its a fantastic, funny and cosy show. There is no fake laughter in the background and that is really good!!! But there are a lot of episodes so some of them are a little bit boring (its still my favorite show!)
its very modern and not old fashion! Its not lame and its actually funny and interesting at the same time.
The actors really know how to play their role as the person in the show and that is the best part because
1. I now know each character in and out
2. I know what each character will respond to a problem
3. I know how they are in their personal lives
another good thing is that they are filming a lot of diffrent place (in friends they are only filming in the apartments and in the cafe) in modern family they take to france and to hawaii and a lot of cool places.
