Critic Reviews for F Is for Family Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (12)

F is for Family asks us to live in that period setting and identify with the abuser instead of the abused. It's a tougher challenge, for sure, and one worth taking on.

Jan 30, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

It can be awfully sweet and, by the end, surprisingly poignant.

Dec 17, 2015 | Full Review…

Like Burr, this show is more than deserving.

Dec 17, 2015 | Full Review…

It's a neat little series with potential to be a whole lot more - and it's well worth sampling on a gray, wintry afternoon.

Jan 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Burr's comedy, while "un-PC," is deceptively nuanced in its worldview -- or as nuanced as his rant-based standup can be.

Dec 20, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Bill Burr is one of those with a knack for mouthing off in a way that invites rather than repels.

Dec 18, 2015 | Full Review…

It's maniac ranting and high energy laughs from Burr and company, including a hilarious Michael Kenneth Williams as the local vending machine clerk, Smoky.

Nov 10, 2020 | Full Review…

An intermittently inventive strain of humor, which is what makes all of its half-realized ambitions and dependence on routine characters and story arcs all the more disappointing.

Jan 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Ultimately, F is for Family wastes the talents of Bill Burr on juvenile humor and unsympathetic characters, creating an outright abysmal experience overall.

Jan 11, 2016 | Rating: 2/10 | Full Review…

It's somewhat crudely animated and is as vulgar and profane as any sitcom ever created; yet, at the same time, it's surprisingly heartfelt and occasionally optimistic, lending the final product a satisfying balance of dark humor and genuine affection.

Dec 24, 2015 | Full Review…

At first glance this looks to be yet another animated family sitcom that attempts mild-shock humor, but this show is more nuanced and amusing than it would first appear.

Dec 20, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

When it's good, F Is For Family makes Frank's frustrations both funny and poignant.

Audience Reviews for F Is for Family: Season 1

    It relates to you even though it based on a middle class family in the 70s ITS FUCKIN FUNNY !!! And it put in a father that trying to be good perspective but shit happens But love that Frank is so honest . Generally AMAZING FUNNY ASS CHARACTERS love all of the main characters especially the oldest son hes so cool 😂😂 like I love his vibe even if he isn't the brightest. in a small way it reminds me of family guy but more real and I just love the concept of it sometimes it's you sad too because again, they show how broke they can be but they still try to survive and even though frank is a father with a temper but at the end of the day he is there for his family .

    Comics don't always succeed when they transition to television shows, but Bill Burr's animated series is a glorious exception.
  • Jul 05, 2020
    Easily the funniest show on Netflix for me. I don't find many things funny to be honest but this has me in absolute stitches, and you don't have to be from the seventies to appreciate the humour. Every single character is an exaggerated version of somebody we have all met throughout our lives. Brilliantly written and I cannot wait for season 5.
  • Jun 30, 2020
    This quickly became one of my absolute favorite shows. I feel like the cursing in the show is almost poetic and the comedy is right in line with my sense of humor. I could binge it over and over again. Please keep the seasons coming!

    AWESOME!!! AMAZING!!

    Amazing show must watch

    F is for Family is funny and has heart, as well the characters are likeable and easy to understand, the setting is also good. The issue is some episodes are useless to the main story.
  • Jun 25, 2019
    Bill i love your work, your show F is for family is awesome but you/Frank really grind my gears. All i see is your face when you talk, scream basically any time Frank is on the screen. For example I dont see Laura or Sams face then they talk. Frank is just you overreacting....Should of got someone else to play Frank and you have a cameo.

    Bill burr is hilarious. He tells it like it is and how a lot of us fathers want to say it. Worth watching
