Audience Reviews for Modern Family: Season 5

  • Aug 09, 2021
    excellent series, with very good plot
  • Apr 04, 2021
    Es una de las mejores series en la historia de la televisión; tiene personajes carismáticos y está llena de momentos divertidos. ¡TOTALEMENTE RECOMENDABLE!

    I say that I am not a person who enjoys watching dramas, but the modern family seems to be worth being called the American national drama. If you want to feel the naked American family atmosphere, I recommend you to watch it. While many comedy-dramas try to be funny with provocative material, the modern family was able to make people laugh with a warm atmosphere. It is characterized by a small American-style disturbance, but always giving lessons on family love at the end. Finally, with the end of season 11 this year, the modern family ended, which is quite disappointing. Even though I haven't seen all the series, I already feel like I'm suffering from aftereffects. The impact of this drama is significant. The plot seems complicated, but there is no time to be bored because actors of various nationalities come out and deal with the stories of various minorities, including immigrants, gays, and women. However, sometimes people tend to insult minorities because they treat them too typically. The modern family was especially popular in Korea, and considering Koreans' tendency to like their unique touching but the pleasant storyline, the well-organized story in every episode of the modern family and the implications that can be gained from it was, in short, "MY TYPE" to Koreans. Having lived in both the U.S. and Korea, I was able to approach and understand the contents of modern families more intensively and deeply. In the drama, some serious topics are solved by laughing and moving on in a comedy format, but in fact, I really sympathized with the worries that immigrants have, especially in the U.S. mainland. Of course, I think it's another advantage of the modern family to enthrall viewers by inserting laughter points in such a profound timing.

    The previous four seasons of Modern Family all garnered five-star ratings from me. While this Fifth Season still provided a lot of laughs, it also had some "dry" episodes that knocked the star ranking down a notch. A big storyline this season revolves around the upcoming nuptials of Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and all the foibles that event causes both in preparation and execution. Daughter Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons) has some of the best lines of the whole season watching her daddies try to pull off the event. All the other principle cast members are spot-on as usual. It is a bit weird to see youngest Dunphy child Luke (Nolan Gould) getting so old, but the show transitions with him pretty well. Where I felt the season was a little stale? The stuff involving Jay (Ed O'Neill) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara), especially their new "Man-ny" Andy (Adam DeVine), a live-in servant not to be confused with the real Manny (Rico Rodriguez). Like I said, this is still a funny season of the show, but there were a few plotlines and even a few whole episodes that just weren't quite as utterly hilarious as the show had been in the past. I hate to call a season like this a "bad year", but I guess it kind of was compared to other seasons previous. I am heartened, however, by the fact that the most similar comedy to this, that being "The Office", fell off the table with a much more resounding thud when it starting wearing out its welcome. Maybe this is the beginning of that route for "Modern Family", but I still enjoyed watching these episodes quite a bit.

    Modern Family season 5 is just the prove that Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd are top notch directors, whose were capable of renew this comedy 5 times, and the most part of comedies stay for the 3rd.
  • Jul 05, 2015
    Show building towards a classic is allowed to have a few downsides to it but how the writers manage to bring all of them and their stories together is appreciable and plausible and makes me watch it every time. Especially how character of Phil carries the show even though Alex is my favorite character. Only problem,for me, is Claire and her controlling and manipulative ways.
  • Jun 28, 2015
    The show is still strong after so many episodes.
  • Dec 10, 2014
    This show lives and breathes writing. While the writing has definitely shifted the past couple of years, little under-the-breath comments and bizarre situations are still able to keep the show sailing. There are, once again, plot strands that run through the season. Mitch and Cam get engaged, Claire starts working for Jay, Gloria hires a new nanny for Joe, and Luke and Manny start high school. Woven into this are a series of great premises, including “A Fair to Remember”, “Under Pressure”, “Las Vegas”, and the hilarious finale, “The Wedding”. While not up to the first few years, this season shows that there’s still plenty of life left in Modern Family.
  • Jul 28, 2014
    I cannot get enough of this show. Even when it's bad, it's still pretty good. Consistently funny, this show has become a staple for me. I hope this show continues to deliver in its next season
