Modern Family "Man Shouldn't Lie" Review - AVClub

AVClub: If there’s been an overarching problem with this season of Modern Family—and believe me, there are quite a few problems to choose from—it’s that there’s been an almost complete absence of emotional depth from episode to episode. The earliest seasons of Modern Family stood out from the sitcom crowd not because of the inclusion of contemporary family units, but because there was an attention paid to the inner lives of these characters. The show always put comedy first, but there was a heart in those early seasons that allowed even the worst episodes to feel in some ways rewarding. Seven seasons in though and suddenly Modern Family is struggling to keep that heart beating.

The story is too old to be commented.
