Hilarious but not for children
1 January 2017 | by gnoroksSee all my reviews

I gave it ten because I found it so refreshing. If one has tried to watch most of the other new comedies that have come out recently like "Kevin can wait" and "Man with a Plan" and find them mostly unwatchable you may agree. The Detour may be pretty stupid sometimes but at least it's funny. I mean really funny. I watched the entire first season in a short period of time and I am ready for more. It is a bit raunchy at times so if you are sensitive to raunchiness just change the channel. I found something "laugh out loud" funny in every episode. Usually many times per episode. Natalie Zea is great in this. Normally she just gets a couple of lines in a show but here she is a main character, so you get to see her a lot. Not appropriate for your Mom or your kids so enjoy!
