The Modern Family Cast Play Misfits

A little while ago I wrote a piece on undiscovered and under the radar sitcoms and included on that list the show Modern Family. Given the fact the Modern Family team took home a whole heap of gongs at the Emmy’s the other night (Best comedy series, Comedy Supporting Actor, Comedy Supporting Actress, Comedy Writing and Comedy Directing) it’s a pretty safe bet it will be seeing much more notoriety from now on.

The show is 2 series old already with the third premiering in a couple of weeks, so if you’re not familiar with the show here’s a trailer to get you up to speed and some snippets of the Dunphy-Delgado-Pritchett clan, showing how the multifaceted ensemble of Columbian second wives, gay lovers, loads of kids and an adopted Vietnamese baby operate…or not:

Patriarch of the family Jay and his second wife Gloria fighting with both language barriers and their answering machine:

Jay’s son Mitchell and his scene-stealing boyfriend Cam return from their holiday to Vietnam to reveal their newly adopted baby, Lilly to the rest of the family in a typically understated way:

Phil, yet another scene stealing character lets us into the secrets behind what makes him such a great dad. Valuable advice for any new father:

The youngest of the ensemble Claire and Phil’s son Luke is an individual thinker of the highest calibre. Although it’s pretty easy to see where he gets his inspiration from:

Mitchell and Cam discuss the tricky task of flying with a baby and their love of a certain Geordie lad:

Gloria giving us an insight into why her son Manny may act in such a strange way. The kid never stood a chance:
