What is there not to love about the diverse show "Modern Family"? After watching it religiously for the past couple years, I have slowly seen how many things relate back to my family’s life. Here are a few reasons why everyone can relate to "Modern Family".
1. Brutally honest.
The show is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. When you turn it on, the family is either throwing jabs at each other or having an honest loving moment. Each character has their own personality and all have different views of many important things in today’s world. Everyone in the family is not afraid to state their feelings toward one another and if they think your outfit looks bad, they will for sure let you know. Being honest with family is the key.
2. We all have someone in the family that’s like Phil.
Let’s face it: Phil is one of the most loved characters on the show. If you personally don’t strive to be like him, you must know someone in your own family who is just like him. From Phil always making dumb little comments and mistakes and him always wanting to be near Gloria, to forgetting small things his wife asked him to do that day, we all know a Phil Dunphy in our life.
3. Sibling relationships.
"Modern Family" has so many sibling relationships, you are bound to fit under the category of one. Alex and Haley for example. They are total opposites, but now that they are growing up, they are realizing that even though they are so different, they are still best friends. People can relate to Mitch and Claire too. As adults with families, they always have each other’s back. Even when the worst can happen to either of them, they know they can get through it together.
Diversity on "Modern Family" is one of the best parts about the show. Many families now a days are very diverse. From being a gay couple, to being from out of the country, to your all American family. The show shows all these diverse families and ways of life. There is at least one that will fit you just perfectly.
5. Relating to every character.
I know personally when my family and I watch the show, we always compare our family to the characters. There is someone for everyone! Alex being the super smart teenager, Haley for being the “party girl”, Mitch and Cam being the gay couple, Phil for just being Phil, Gloria for being the gorgeous family member, and so many more characters that you can relate to. Which one are you?
