Modern Family

Clash Of Swords

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 a genuine emotion on the screen and the projection of some of the complicated and delicate relations like a father (Ty Burrell) going the distance and pushing the boundaries for his son (Nolan Gould) which was shown in some semi-comic sequences. 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 closure.

Season 09 being a prime victim of this disease has failed on delivering any lose end of a thread for the audience to hold on to for the forthcoming experience is one of the main reasons why it has been the worst of all. At a certain point, its just depressing watching Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen work so hard on so little.

The enthusiasm and the passion on writing seems to wear off as it barely attempts to grasp the attention of the viewers and it is not that they don't come up with new plotlines (Phil visiting "Hero Con" was intriguing but lacked material) but the fact that they are geared with the same idea.
