"The Detour" is a new half-hour comedy on TBS. After watching the first two episodes, I am looking forward to more.
This show includes adult humor, so check it out before letting kids watch. Otherwise, enjoy its edgy humor about a family on a road trip.
The parents are Jason James as the father, Nate, and Natalie Zea as the mother, Robin. They are traveling from Syracuse, NY to Fort Lauderdale, FL with their twins, Jared (Liam Carroll) and Delilah (Ashley Gerasimovich). Much like "National Lampoon's Vacation", the journey is filled with errors in judgment and hilarious outcomes.
Nate and Robin, like many parents, struggle with responsible parenting in the age of social media and the internet. And the tween twins are a handful. Laugh out loud moments abound as the well-meaning parents get in awkward situations and have to extricate themselves.
All four lead actors hold up their ends, so the fun never flags.
Update 2/22/17: After watching the first two episodes of season 2, I am raising my grade to "10". This is the funniest show on TV.
