Critic Reviews for F Is for Family Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (10)

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.

Top Critic

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…

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…

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…

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…

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

Top Critic

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

Audience Reviews for F Is for Family: Season 1

    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

    While it is overly vulgar the show does have some genuine heart and a great cast.
  • Nov 11, 2018
    I've actually watched up to season 2, episode 5. The show has a certain realism and relatability to it that makes me want to watch more, but for the most part, it's just too mean. It's nothing but screaming and cursing and hitting, slapping, punching, beating. And almost all of this is directed towards the kids. I know times were different back then when it came to what was appropriate for disciplining children, but that doesn't make it any more pleasant to watch. It's really hard to support and root for a father and mother that kick the crap out of their kids all the time - except the daughter, who gets special treatment because she's a girl, It's just the equivalent of having your TV scream at you.

    Esta série é engraçada e charmosa, mesmo sendo baseada nos anos 70. A personagem do Bill Burr faz-me rir imenso, bem como as suas aventuras no trabalho. As músicas presentes na série são simplesmente maravilhosas!!!

    Often very funny, even if a few of the characters are a bit too reminiscent of characters on The Simpsons. And season 2 is superior to season 1.
