F is for Family, created by Bill Burr and Emmy award-winner Michael Price (The Simpsons), follows the Murphy family in the 1970's, a time when you could smack your kid, smoke inside and bring a gun to the airport. Burr will voice the role of Frank Murphy, the family’s extreme patriarch; Laura Dern will voice Frank’s wife Sue; and Justin Long voices the family’s oldest son, Kevin.
What a disappointment! Was expecting that this was going to be a show for a good laugh, but end up quiting after episode 3.
Not even fast forwarding the remaining episodes changed my mind... big flop!

F is for Family is a animated comedy about the everyday man who had hopes and dreams but now lives an ordinary life. The show is vulgar, the script is funny and the voices are good. I suggest this show if you want a laugh.
If All in the Family and the Simpsons created a love child it would be F is For Family. When I heard that it was a Netflix original I didn't have much hope for this short series, but it turned out to be a fun view into a screwed up family. This hyperbolic snapshot into the 70's family unit is full of droll humor and kept afloat by references to the past and extreme stereotyping. The greatest part of this show is how the writers depict the relationships within it and carry them forward across the entire series. Many of the series' greatest moments stem from the running gags that are built up from the first episode. This is not a series that you can just pick up in the middle and fully enjoy, but it is worth the effort.
I wish that the writers thought that "F" was for "Funny" instead. I watched the first two episodes and I didn't laugh once. I blame the writers, but equal blame goes to the producers and Netflix for green-lighting this mess.
What a pile. Seriously this was like Family Guy and The Simpsons got together and thought of the very worst things a rip off show could be then ate that final idea and what came out later was the finished product. Abysmal isn't nearly a strong enough word. Don't even bother if you're an animated comedy fan because this shouldn't even have happened.
