    Classic 70s comedy, the show has built off season 1 and 2.

Still dynamic relationships and Frank and Sue are dealing with having a new child and their other children growing up. Their new "awesome" neighbor Chet changes everything and causes additional strains on their relationship. I like the reality of their complex marriage and having to constantly deal with everyday life, including work, children and friendships. Pretty much a dark comedy but very easy to relate to for everyone. I look forward to Season 4 to draw from the changes in this season including the impending arrival that is sure to drive Frank crazy. Expand

    Binged it in a few days, the jokes are just as dark as ever and it left me really looking forward to the next season, hope they keep up the great writing.

It probably deserves a 7/10... I'll give it a 7... But it annoys me, because it is yet another in a seemingly endless series of cartoons that aren't able to sustain more than a couple of seasons before starting to show their age.

    There are things I really like about this show but it has the potential to be so much more. It feels like an old show - and it can get away with that because it's set in the 70s... But, 70s TV sucked.

    F is for Family doesn't suck (yet) but it feels more like a 90s animated sitcom than a 70s sitcom. It's King of the Hill, but it isn't nearly as good.

    Frank yelling abuse at his children gets old. The Simpsons try to make a commentary, now, when Homer strangles Bart... And, there is some attempt here to justify the abuse too. But, I don't think it's funny for someone to be a horrible father. It's shocking. Like Rick and his grandson Morty.

    Bill, twitching, being told to "bury it, deep down" by his father.
    Morty burying himself in the back yard.

    Why is this funny?

    Rosie is a waste of space... I like the morbidly obese Beavis & Butthead caricature that runs the airline, too. But, almost all the other characters - outside of the Murphy family - are ill-conceived... with maybe the exception of the Holocaust survivor. The Italian guy with the high pitched voice is incredibly annoying. He feels like he's in the wrong show.

    Kevin is great. Bill is great. And, Frank is great. They are the heart of the show.

    Sue is like a mix of Francine from American Dad, Peggy Hill from King of the Hill, and someone else I can't quite put my finger on... maybe Peggy Bundy?

    She's a cliche.

    Maureen is okay.

    Goomer is alright, even though he's basically straight out of King of the Hill.

    This season's long narrative arcs for it's female characters are forced and forgettable. The Hobo Jojo storyline is particularly trite. But, Sue's fork-spatula thing really stretches the salad tosser bit way too long. It gets tiresome hearing about it. Bill and Kevin's storylines were good.

    The scenes with Frank and his new neighbour were okay, too. But, I don't like the way Frank is turning around. That's not real. The writer's probably feel like they have to break his character and have him experience some kind of revelation. But, I'd rather they talked about the situations that don't change. About the people that don't break their chains. The ones that keep on being abusive.

    They're doing it well, with Frank, at least. It was set up decently, I guess. It just feels like a weird shift. First it's funny, and now it's not?

    I don't like Sam Rockwell's character, either... and I'm a big Sam Rockwell fan. I can't think of another one of his performances that I don't like. But I definitely don't like his Matthew McConaughey coke snorting character in the context of a story about a normal guy like Frank.

    I'd rather the story be less of a cartoon. If it had a darker tone, like Bojack Horseman, it would be a better show. It is losing out to the expectation of what it should be.
