    In just six episodes, F Is For Family will certainly make you laugh, but its dramatic heft is so unexpectedly huge that it might also move you to tears.

    It’s a bitter, but deeply empathetic portrayal of suburban malaise and depression that also doubles as a very funny TV show.

    The show itself is very promising, albeit uneven, as almost any young comedy is, and fits neatly into the dark and very adult animated comedy brand Netflix started for itself with the great "BoJack Horseman."

    The semi-serialized six-episode run has a dark, bittersweet quality, but despite some clever moments, F generally merits no more than a “B.”

    The sadness and unrest in F Is for Family tempers the humor and keeps the show from ever getting too frivolous. The family of its title gives the show a hopeful core, but it's always looking around the corner for the next stumbling block, so mostly, F Is for Family is entertainingly honest.

    The show is funny, but a not-always-subtle flip side makes the jokes funny as well. Inevitably, we view it all through both our personal lens and through contemporary sensibilities.

    The tone is more restrained than outrageous, but Burr and Price don’t have a strong enough perspective to compensate for the mediocre humor. Their average family is a little too average.

To compare to other animated shows,its much funnier then Bob's Burgers (which is ok dont get me wrong) but not as funny as family guy or south park. but its close. To be honest, its refreshing to hear profanity in a show. So tired of beeps and censorship from the human garbage at the FCC. Bill Burr's stand up routines are very funny as well so I had a feeling this show would be good ,and I was right! I honestly dont think it would be anywhere near as funny without Bill tho. Lets hope for a second season!! Expand

    This is a Netflix Original staring Bill Burr, The show is supposed to tell the story of Bill Burr growing up and stories of his life. ThisThis is a Netflix Original staring Bill Burr, The show is supposed to tell the story of Bill Burr growing up and stories of his life. This makes some parts of the show seem slightly realistic or grounded by maybe by 80s standards. Lots of the show is extremely vulgar and surprised me at times. There isn't much to the show other then comedy, It tries to have some more focused episodes but nothing special. The series isn't very long either so binge watching it is very easy. If your a fan of Bill Burr or extremely vulgar humor give F is for Family a look, but don't expect much more. Expand
