Very little of it requires the time period it's supposedly set in, so it pretty much squanders what little it has going for it. There's a few small things but the actual episode plots could be set anywhere.
Still better than post-revival family guy, not as great as some of the post-revival Futurama, doesn't even come close to touching That 70's Show.
>>78874225 >Very little of it requires the time period it's supposedly set in How so? What would you have wanted? The show went decently hard with 70s references, but the struggles of lower-middle class families have basically been the same for a couple decades.
Bullying, doing poorly in school, gender roles, hating your job, crying into plastic...these things are timeless and people still experience them on a regular basis.
>>78872442 Neither. What makes the show good is that they're both pretty real characters. They're real pieces of shit, but they're not Moral Orel-levels of irredeemable, and they have their reasons for being the way they are, Frank because he feels trapped in his own life and Kevin because he feels directionless and hates that he wants his father's approval.
Personally, I identify with Kevin more. I was similar at his age. I hated my parents but I craved their acceptance, and I didn't enjoy anything but drugs and music that made me feel smart. But at the same time Frank makes me understand how my father felt and why he was such a dick. He didn't ask for a piece of shit son like me, but he didn't walk away either. He did his best, and even if that wasn't very good that effort is worth something.
>>78875184 He has a hard-on for classic, American masculinity and his dad represents that to him which is very normal. The reason why he seems to like it so much is made clear in the show: he needed to 'be a man' in order to be worthy in his father's eyes.
