Did you guys ever have that grandmother who you used to sit around the dinner table screaming “here comes that old dirty bastard again!” every time the train came by? Well, just the same, Bill Burr is coming in like a freight train, and this dirty bastard cannot be stopped.
F Is for Family just blasted 10 strong new episodes of animated honesty in a world full of overly- censored TV with its second season. Season one was a short-lived experiment in which Burr gave Netflix a much-needed boost in animation with its first 6 episodes. With the help of Mark Price and several A-listers voicing over, the second season brings harder hits, consistent real-life LOLs (damn you, if you speak this way) and 10 fresh half-hour episodes of Burr’s major co-creation as Frank Murphy, the old school dad who continues to battle unemployment and the anger, depression and casual fatherly alcoholism that ensues.
If you’re an avid viewer of The Simpsons but think maybe (just maybe) they should’ve packed up and moved on about a decade ago, this unapologetic Al Bundy–type father figure (voiced over by Burr) will do the trick. With all the dad jokes, overly-used catchphrases (“I’m gonna put you through that fuckin’ wall!”) and equally-comedic costars (Laura Dern, Justin Long and Sam Rockwell as an animated McConaughey circa Dazed & Confused), F Is for Family is fine-tuning its fiddle and reeling us in like Family Guy did in their early seasons.
Only now, you can have your cake and eat it, too. Meaning, you can binge hard whenever you want and stuff your fat face with cake at the same time (you disgusting slob) while you enjoy your new favorite Netflix cartoon without your grandmother screaming in the background.
