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 complicated and delicate relationships like a father (Burrell) going the distance and pushing the boundaries for his son (Gould) which was shown in some 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 Vergara and O'Neill whilst the show stealers are Burrell and 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.

Season 10

Taking another shot and returning for a final season, this cast seems like they are back in their zone, the performance is lifted up due to its much mature writing than what we have received in the recent seasons, addition to that, it doesn't reminiscence a lot about the fact of it being a final season.

Did The Chicken Cross The Road?

Dunphy's house is chaotic as a mob-gone-wrong with every character fixated on its own priorities, it keeps you busy completely with psychoanalysis and long walks, whilst the other two storylines were victim of the same theme that wasn't up to Dunphy's standards.
