Storyline

A father trying to provide for his family with a job he hates, a mother trying to be the wife and parent that society demands her to be, a teen full of angst with a love for rock-n-roll, a kid who is cursed with "middle child syndrome" who just wants to have fun, and a little girl who is far from "girly" but is still the apple of her father's eye all make for the perfect recipe of 1970's America. Back to a time when tobacco was healthy, a kid's curfew was when the street lights went out, mom stayed at home, and sex, drugs, & rock-n-roll made the world go 'round. Watch how the typical, middle class American family held it together.

It's Not What You Think
1 January 2016 | by Suicide_SaintSee all my reviews

Despite the fact that the lead character, Frank Murphy, may appear to be a cross between Peter Griffin and Hank Hill, this show is nothing like the shows of the aforementioned characters. "F is for Family" is a brutally honest family and workplace comedy set in the early 1970s. The humor is no-holds-barred in regard to the doldrums of a lower-middle class family. Netflix does not rely on cutaway humor or awkward naiveté. Rather, Frank and his family cut close to the bone for anyone who grew up in even a remotely similar family dynamic. It would be easy to dismiss this show since so many animated family comedies have come before, but this show is worth the viewing time. At only 6 episodes, the first season ends too quickly and displays plenty of potential for continuation. Like BoJack Horseman, this show is not intended for younger audiences. Prepare to laugh, be surprised, be disheartened or even depressed, and most of all, to relate to the Murphys while viewing "F is for Family."
