O Holy Moley Night (F is for Family Season 1 Review) – Episode 6 The TnT Review

On this episode of The TnT Review, The Reverend Tracy and Tim Jousma dive into episode 6 of F is For Family Season 1, which is available on Netflix. The topics discussed in this episode include: How a parent can be both rational and irrational when their kid does something really stupid.  How parents will try and force religion on their kids when they don't follow it themselves.  Having to do an activity with a bully and how that can make you change perspective.  How a person can overcompensate to try and cover their old responsibilities when they get new responsibilities.  How there are times when the children of the owner of a business will abuse their power.  How silly communion really is.  How the idea of what a family should look like makes you miss what you actually have. How fathers can be inconsiderate of their daughter's emotions.  How some parents enable their kids being assholes.  How gullible the general public is for continually believing corporations when their companies are on strike.
