Ty Burrell: Modern Family is ‘helping normalise’ gay marriage

  • Maryland Kid

    I watch Modern Family fairly regularly, and it’s an excellent sitcom, though I have to admit that I prefer Parks and Recreation or Community. To be honest, though, I really have never liked Cam and Mitchell. It’s not that I find anything wrong with them as characters, but they keep getting stuck in these incredibly stupid and cringeworthy story lines. With the other characters on the show, the writing is always oriented towards exploring the family dynamics, which is why I like it. I wish that the writing team would use Cam and Mitchell as an opportunity to explore some of those issues in LGBT families, instead of relegating them to B and C plots.
