Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Modern Family - Season 4 [DVD] (DVD)
..........nearly every successful Sitcom, by the 3rd or 4th Season, all those awards, all that money, all those plaudits, tend to go to the Writers/Actors/Producers heads - meaning that the purity of intent that had the thing created in the first place gives way to something 'knowing', egotistical.
And so it is that in Season 3 we saw strong trace elements of this and by Season 4 these were in full effect.
Thus Season 4 has nearly all the Cast (inc the kids) over-Acting, hamming & trying way too hard (to keep this gravy train a-goin') and the Writing similar.
Seasons 1&2 are well worth getting (esp Season 1), but apart from a couple of moments mid-way thru Season 4 & Ty Burrell (by far the most consistent performance in the show) - this show by Season 4 knows how successful it is and is more interested in sustaining the success awards & money than story & character.
