Ouch! Not as good as series 1-3...
on 21 November 2013
I am a big fan of Modern Family and loved the first 3 series, however something has gone seriously wrong with this one. It was always fast paced, but in this series the characters have become frenetic, the plot twists are jarring and clunky and the lines delivered on a production line. Never the most subtle of programmes, the subtlety that it did have and most of the sense of comic timing has gone. In short, it has lost its mojo and it feels very much like everyone is going through the motions. There are very occasional moments of quality from Cam and Mitch, but otherwise its light has gone out for me.
