An incredible trip!
9 April 2016 | by CaymanAlSee all my reviews

I ran across this title over the internet and thought it was a movie. I then saw it was a TBS original and had second thoughts about watching it. (I live outside the US and don't have TBS.) I reluctantly watched the pilot episode and trust me when I tell you this, if you have any sense of humor, you will love this show.

One critic who is Russian absolutely murdered this show. It just goes to show how some people watch TV/MOVIES and think that everything should be true to life. It's said that this story is based on the real life couple's own experience with family vacations. That makes it even better.

This is reminiscent of the VACATION movies, but I think it has a much better feel to it. The one liners are incredible! You'll have to watch it twice to catch everything, but it is SO worth it.

This is my first review because I feel it's completely merited. From the looks of it, it may have been scheduled for at least 2 seasons. I think this has a chance to go for at minimum 3. But, we should wait to see how the first season turns out. The promos look promising.

GIVE THIS SERIES A CHANCE, it's quite the laugh. I've watched the pilot 3 times and keep laughing.

The children in the series are spectacular.

I hope everyone jumps on board for this ride. So far, I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up. haha 8/10
