Paste magazine selected the 10 best sitcoms on TV right now , and of course one of them is Modern Family. Here is what Paste had to say about the show:

The funniest debut season of a sitcom in a long while belongs to Modern Family on ABC. The story of three inter-related families works because its characters seem familiar to life but fresh to the screen. Not that the show is above archetypes: There’s the rebellious teen seduced by popularity, the beautiful Colombian second wife, the trying-too-hard-to-be-cool dad, the patriarch who doesn’t like to show affection, the flamboyantly gay boyfriend. But it’s not taken long for TV veterans Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan to let each character’s uniqueness flourish through the myriad relationships within the family.

It’s these relationships that make even a completely messed-up family a valuable thing. No matter how bad things get in this Modern Family, it always beats the alternative of not having each other. They’re flawed individuals, offering only broken bits of love to one another, but that’s more than enough to cling to. As Dylan, the boyfriend of Claire’s oldest daughter so sweetly an wisely said—before breaking into a song about Haley with the lyrics, “I just want to do you, do you” in front of the family—“You’re reaching out, trying to hold on to something awesome… Haley’s got the kind of confidence that you get from having a family like this that’s passionate and accepting of hot foreigners and gay dudes and nutty people—you know, family that actually loves each other.”

In Style Magazine has an article about the house of Julie Bowen from ‘Modern Family’:
The Modern Family actress lives in a midcentury ranch-style house, close to a canyon where she goes on her morning runs. Julie and her husband, software developer Scott Phillips, spent more than a year gutting and remodeling the house, creating an open floor plan with a light-filled living room where everything happens: playdates, story time with the children, and cocktail parties with friends.

Modern Family moon landing

“Do people want their real estate advice from someone who leads, or someone who follows? I’m bettin’ these babies (points to mustache) are coming back in a big way. Buy low, sell high. People are going to see this and say, ‘That guy’s high.’” – Phil

We had a great night last night, and here are some of the highlights from reviews of ‘Modern Family’ – ‘Moon Landing’:

From TVsquad:
Sometimes I wonder if I could just write up a review of ‘Modern Family’ by listing all of the great quotes that come out of this show. Line for line, this has to be one of the cleverest series on television today. Even the episode title, ‘Moon Landing,’ recalls a great moment.

From EW:
Could last night’s episode of Modern Family been any funnier? I mean, I may as well have transcribed the entire episode, because every line had me practically running to my own Porta-Potty.

Highlights from CliqueClack:

  • Luke imaging the cool school made of recycled bottles.
  • “I can’t imagine you working.” – Luke, to his mom
    “Luke, that is very offensive to women. Your mom works very hard. It’s just now she works for us.” – Phil
  • “I don’t take kindly when someone Tom Selleck’s my park bench.” – Phil
  • “What’s Jägermiester?”- Alex
    “Well, um, you know when in a fairy tale there’s always a potion that makes the princess fall asleep and then the guys start kissing her? This is like that, except you don’t wake up in a castle, you wake up in a frat house with a bad reputation.” – Phil
  • Say Anything, Dylan. And please, stop talking. You’re making the generation gap even more embarrassing for Phil.
