Cam and Mitchell, the gay dads from ABC's hit sitcom Modern Family, are a funny, bickering couple - with zero physical chemistry between them. While I can easily picture the show's two other couples, Claire and Phil and Jay and Gloria, "getting busy" with each other, I can't say the same for the asexual gay duo. (I can even picture Mr. French and Uncle Bill from Family Affair getting hot and sweaty with each other before these two.) I don't know who'd be doing what to whom and I think it would end before it started because of fussing from both sides.
And truth be told I don't even think they're that happy a couple. Their first child, Lily (as lively as a block of wood, since replaced by a more lifelike child), was probably adopted for a diversion and now even she's not enough because at the end of last season Mitchell mentioned to Cam of his desire to have another child - perhaps to assuage their gnawing dissatisfaction with each other?
Nonetheless, it's gratifying to see a gay couple living openly as a family on TV. I just wish they didn't come across as a couple of spinster sisters. For the time being it appears "heat" between couples on network TV is reserved for heterosexuals.
