10 Reasons why Modern Family is worth watching

Here are 10 Reasons why Modern Family is worth watching:

1. Fun to watch: A total of 250 Episodes in 11 seasons and every one of them has total chaos a rollercoaster of emotions, a feeling of joy, and keeps you smiling until the end.

2. It is a family-friendly sitcom: Although there are many shows available online, however not all of them can be enjoyed by all the family members sitting around the fire and on the lazy couch. Modern Family is one of the many shows out there that can be viewed by everyone, and when I say everyone – the kids, parents, grandparents, siblings, and queer relatives.
This show has something for everybody to enjoy and characters and scenarios to which they can relate to.

3. Easily available on multiple viewing platforms: Modern Family is readily available on Hotstar, ABC, Hulu, and Amazon Prime videos. Just log on to your already subscribed viewing platform and enjoy this epic comedy with friends and family.

4. Short 21-24 minutes episodes: The episode length are short just as you would expect from a comedy sitcom, with a 24-minute long, captivating, and entertainment-packed drama.

5. Never get bored: There is never a moment of boredom while viewing this show there is always a fun situation in the three families which are interrelated with each other to complete the missing piece of the puzzle in the end.

6. It is a new form of comedy: Often I have seen cliche lines and predictable plots in various shows that force the viewers to take a break. Modern Family changes the game with smart writing with quick punch lines which come out as a surprise and leave you bamboozled.

7. Diverse characters and cast: The casting team did a bang-on job with the selection of cast, this is one of the shows where the actors fit the characters perfectly and the plot seems natural with a Colombian wife of a rich white husband and a gay couple with an adopted Vietnamese daughter who complements each other rather well.

8. Amazing story arch: Each episode starts slow around a plot then starts the chaos and all the drama happening between parent-child, husband-wife, and brother-sister which ends in a disruptive end that is not perfect just like in a regular family, but there is a learning curve at the end just like in reality, which is why this show has such a loyal fan base.

9. The show has 11 seasons which is good for binge-watching: Imagine you had a long week of total burnout, and not even an ounce of energy to go out on the weekend. Well, put yourself in something comfy and grab something to eat, complete a season over the weekend. The viewing experience is such that it will re-energize you for the week and still keep you wanting for more.
