In its fifth season, Modern Family appears to have finally arrived at the depressing and predictable low point toward which it's been trending for the past two years.

Modern Family... stays fat and happy in its impeccably appointed lane.

The characters came off strong, the jokes hit, and there were tear-jerking moments at the end.

I laughed out loud a few times, got a little misty eyed at moments and did a combination of the two when Jay started crying at Manny's letter... Only the best shows can bring out that kind of dual reaction!

This isn't a bad show! It's often quite a good show! But by its nature, it's a show that shows you its cards every week, and every week it's the same hand.

Modern Family kicks off its fifth season with big laughs and plenty of heart, while cueing up its characters for many big changes this year.
