Modern Family: The Complete Sixth Season (2014 - 2015/Fox DVD Set)

Picture: B+ Sound: B Extras: B Episodes: B-

Modern Family: The Complete Sixth Season still keeps us laughing. They manage to do what some shows fail to do, which is keep their audience coming back for more. The show has been able to consistently do the confessional interviews throughout the series, but it has gotten to the point where you do not even notice them anymore. The earlier seasons of Modern Family, including this one, makes it feel as if it is some sort of necessity, but the later seasons could do without. Each confessional does not stand out as much, because they rely heavily on the one-liners that feel way too similar to jokes they used before, sometimes they even are the same joke.

Another thing is the cast as they get older and grow as a character and as a person, for example, They still make it like Gloria (Sofia Vergara) does not understand the English language as well. We can sometimes let this slide, due to the fact that without this element we would not have those comedic moments, but she has lived here long enough to understand the strings they are pulling at. The biggest disappointment as the show progresses is Manny (Rico Rodriguez), because when he was a little sophisticated and snooty child it was hilarious. However, now that he has grown up it can get kind of annoying and you can see the writers struggling to find this kids place in the family.

The show overall is still funny and worth a watch. Although, there is not much new, and nothing too adventurous, Modern Family still has won five Emmy's for outstanding comedy series and you can see why. Now, some can chalk it up to either not many shows being considered or just not much to compete with, but it is ultimately a quality show nevertheless.

There are 3 discs that contain all 24 episodes for season 6 of Modern Family. The episodes include, "The Long Honeymoon", "Do Not Push", "The Cold", "Marco Polo", "Won't You Be Our Neighbor", "Halloween 3: AwesomeLand", "Queer Eyes", "Full Hearts", "Three Turkeys", "Strangers in the Night", "Haley's 21st Birthday", "The Day We Almost Died", "The Big Guns", "Rash Decisions", "Valentine's Day 4: Twisted Sister", "Fight or Flight", "Connection Lost", "Closet? You'll Love It!", "Spring Break", "Grill, Interrupted", "Knock 'Em Down", "Integrity", "Patriot Games", "Crying Out Loud", and "American Skyper."

The technical specifications are presented in standard definition anamorphically enhanced widescreen 1.78:1 and lossy English Dolby Digital 5.1 audio presentation, which look and sound similar to how it is aired on ABC when you watch it live, if not in HD. There are a few special features which include Awesome Halloween, A Modern Thanksgiving, Modern Connections: The Making of an Episode, A Day With Julie, and Deleted Scenes.
