Modern Family: The Complete Seventh Season (2015 - 2016/Fox DVD Set)

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

The popular sitcom Modern Family returns for a Seventh Season and is collected together in this three disc set from Fox that fans will want to pick up. The show features an all star comedic cast including Ed O’ Neill (Married with Children), Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, and Nolan Gould to name a few.

Told from the perspective of an unseen documentary filmmaker (and without a laugh track), the series offers an honest, often-hilarious perspective of three interconnected families in the 21st Century in California. Middle-aged parents Phil (Burrell) and Claire (Bowen) are using the best of their abilities to raise their three kids. Also in the picture is Claire's dad, Jay (O'Neill), and his Latina wife, Gloria (Vergara), to whom are raising two sons together and finally Jay's gay son, Mitchell (Ferguson), and his partner, Cameron (Stonestreet), who have also adopted a little Asian girl - all of which culminate in a narrative of traditional, multicultural, and homosexual family dynamics.

Episodes include Summer Lovin, The Day Alex Left for College, The Closet Case, She Crazy, The Verdict, The More You Ignore Me, Phil's Sexy Sexy House, Clean Out Your Junk Drawer, White Christmas, Playdates, Spread Your Wings, Clean For A Day, Thunk in the Trunk, The Storm, I Don't Know How She Does It, The Cover-Up, Express Yourself, The Party, Man Shouldn't Lie, Promposal, Crazy Train, and Double Click.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the show looks and sounds fine on DVD but isn't too much better than the initial broadcast presentation-wise. Seeing the series commercial-free is a treat, however, that fans won't want to miss.

Special Features include...

Storming The Set: The Making of an Episode

Growing up Modern Family

Kids in the Spotlight

Deleted and Alternate Scenes

Extended Version of Thunk in the Trunk

Pretty funny and relevant to today's family dynamics, Modern Family will appeal to most who enjoy socially awkward situations. For more on the previous seasons, try these links...
