I am so thankful for this show--I know I can count on it making me laugh and lifting my spirits even if it is a repeat episode.

For as hilarious as this show is, I almost teared up with Jay's talk in his car with Manny. That was really sweet.

It's not like the UK's My Family is it? That was a hugely popular sitcom over here. It's recently been axed

That's such a great show! No, this show is a mocumentary about three branches of the same family--the father, his new wife and stepson; the daughter, her husband and three children; and the son, his husband and daughter.

Are Cam and Mitchell married? I didn't think they were. I might be wrong on that, though.

I don't think they are, and I'm pretty sure one of them said "boyfriend" last episode.

A mocumentary? Does that mean that it's being filmed as though it's a reality series but it's actually a sitcom?

It's a "mockumentary" insofar as they occasionally have the characters talking to the camera like it's an interview, but there's no background as to why this is happening.

Was there any ever context given as to why they're supposedly being filmed? It's kind of silly when you think about it. If the characters are supposedly in a "documentary," why isn't there any reference to it other than the interspersed interviews? Why are they being filmed anyway? Wouldn't there theoretically be cameras all over as they're being filmed every minute of their day?

It's like The Office - why does anyone care about a paper company? Why are they being filmed? Why are they STILL being filmed?

It's an excuse for the characters to make funny comments outside of the situation in question, which is all well and good, but the whole idea of the "mockumentary" is pretty stupid when you think about it.

i think the original idea was for it to be a full on mockumentary, but they found it worked better without total acknowledgment of the camera crew outside of the interviews.

hey, it's funny, so whatevs.
