I watched the first episode of Modern Family for a college class; the show from the very start was created solely out of trying to be that ‘Hip’ and ‘Edgy’ show that the liberals of today can fawn over.
Among the distasteful things about it
This old man that looks like he’s in his sixties is married to a 30ish Columbian woman with a son. The first time I saw this I thought “Is he her sugar daddy or something? This just doesn’t look right.” Considering the woman’s backstory was living in a columbian town with a high murder rate (said in the show), I was almost expecting that she married him just to get a Visa to the USA.
Then there is the average nuclear family in the show, oh boy are they boring beyond belief. The two kids are boring, the father is boring, the wife is boring…I don’t hate sitcoms my two favorite are “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “King of Queens”. “Modern Family” just feels like they didn’t put any effort into making this family enjoyable and tried to focus on the family with age disparity parents and the gay couple.
With that being said, There is the gay couple. Oh man the gay couple. Besides the immorality of it the fact is their a giant stereotype too. Their flaming, their flirtatious with one another, pretty sure I remember at least one of them had a lisp of some sort, thankfully no crossdressing. Oh and what else? Oh why they have an adopted baby of course! With the first episode showing that they considered IVF with one of their lesbian friends before deciding to adopt a korean baby. Oh and the father of one of them (who is the man married to the 30 year old in the show) apparently isn’t comfortable with his son being gay, but this issue isn’t really all that big of an issue-he still visits and doesn’t really show any animosity about it or the child they adopted.
Having given that out, honestly seeing them hype up that one of the toddlers is going to say the F word doesn’t surprise me.
