F Is for Family is an American adult animated comedy series released on Netflix in 2015. It is created by comedian Bill Burr, and Simpsons producer, Michael Price.


The life and adventures of the Murphy family and the struggles they face in their lives.

Why It Puts Us Through That Wall

  1. It is Netflix's done right version of Shout Factory's ill-fated and short lived series, The Goode Family, and Channel 4's infamously godawful Full English.
  2. It deal's with life problems and struggles that people at Frank's age would have in real life in a mature matter.
  3. The Murphy Family themselves are really engaging and likable.
  4. Like with BoJack Horseman, each season leads to a story arc. As each episode links together in one big story.
  5. Excellent voice talents, which includes Bill Burr (the show's creator), Debi Derryberry, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Justin Long (who later ends up in another animated Netflix original).
  6. The episode "F Is for Halloween" has hilarious moments where Maureen dresses up as male characters (and especially a Nazi) which annoys Frank.
  7. Bill looks a little bit like Laney Penn and Luluco.
  8. The Nickle and Pickle Show (in color) seems interesting.
  9. The animation and art-style, although its a bit cheap at times, it looks good-looking and very well drawn, the colors and character designs are solid and smooth.
  10. The concept of the show being set in a past decade is a great concept. This carried out to shows and movies that are made to be set in past decades such as Happy Days (which is a sitcom set in the 1950s), The Goldbergs (which is a sitcom set in the 1980s), That '70s Show (a sitcom set in the 1970s), and Captain Marvel (which that movie is set in the 1990s back when Stan Lee was alive).
  11. The Fat Albert reference was funny.

Bad Qualities

  1. Frank, our main protagonist, can be a bit unlikable. But not as unlikable as Ken Lavender from Full English.
  2. The animation, although it is still good, it can be somewhat cheap depending on your point of view of some people and viewers.
  3. Like what the problem is with the characters from The Breakfast Club. Most of the time, the behaviors the family has in that show (especially Kevin and Frank Murphy) are both poor and unacceptable. Either due to their bad habits (failing school is an example of this), anger and behavioral problems, or they argue and squabble with one or another.


  • The series is based on Bill Burr's childhood.
  • The series itself takes place in the 1970's, season one took place in 1973, and season two took place in 1974 after the season one finale.
  • The show's theme song is Redbone's "Come and Get Your Love".
