I have Modern Family automatically added to my queue in Hulu. Yet, every time it gets added I dread watching it. I wait until there’s nothing left in the list to watch before I start it up.
Yet, when I finally get around to watching it, I laugh and laugh. There are aspects of this show that I think are hysterical. And I think the actors are perfect. And I love Ed O’Neill.
The show is about a patriarch (Ed O’Neill), his young Spanishy wife and her son. His son is gay and has the best gay boyfriend since Nathan Lane in The Birdcage. They just adopted a Vietnamese baby. His daughter is married to a guy who tries to be hip and is really a jerky nerd. They have three kids.
Anyway, the show is set up kind of like a reality show. The characters get into weird situations and then they have brief interviews with the characters involved.
I don’t understand how I can dread watching something so much, yet enjoy it so much when I finally do.
