All things must come to an end, and this is an especially heartbreaking moment when it is your loved ones are the things that must come to pass.
This has been no exception to our now-departed friends in the networks where America’s most loved sitcoms, while they looked as if they would last forever, did have to come to a close.
And now, among the great halls of American Long-running sitcoms, therein lies a new plaque for our cherished series ‘Modern Family’, coming to an end after 11 years on air, and one of the Emmy’s favorite on live television.
The end of the sitcom not only sigfies that we have to say bye by to the kids we have seen grow up right in front of our eyes. Nor does it only signify that we get to witness how Sofia Vergara keeps her young form without so much as a ‘tingle’ as she would put it for decades.
No, it has more to do with the whole network television as a whole. Modern Family is the last sitcom to ever achieve the largest number of Emmys in best comedy wins in the history of television.
No other show since its inception has been able to keep track record, and it would certainly need more than several years to achieve those records. Alas, the media industry and its platform ever changing, it seems the last glory is to be held only by this entitled piece of comedic writing.
Modern Family, as all series did so too, was not without its faults. Indeed, the last few seasons were critiqued as “loose” and “elongated” beyond recognition by some harsh critiques.
But there is no denying that the series, as it s title suggests, promoted a very modern view toward how families are being shaped in America. Sensational at its initiation, the family forms of gay couples, the young Hispanic wife and the Caucasian old husband and henceforth is now considered not only normal, but a given form of family, both by consensus and the law.
One of the pioneering moments in the history was when the gay couples were married one year prior to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the case. Although it has sparked criticisms for being “impure” and “unsensical”, it has now become a norm.
