The Detour Reviews & Ratings

Tuesdays, 10:00 PM ET on TBS

30 minutes

An honest and darkly comedic look at family, TBS’s new series starring Jason Jones and Samantha Bee will follow a couple and their two young kids as they take a road trip to Florida. Jones stars as unfiltered dad Nate, who packs his wife, Robin (Zea), along with their rebellious daughter Delilah (Gerasimovich) and simpleton son Jared (Carroll), into the family car for what Nate is convinced will be the adventure of a lifetime. Every leg of their trip, however, is fraught with unforeseen disaster as they encounter one hellish turn after another.

Funny, full of social commentary and very much NOT appropriate for kids. Nice to see a comedy that doesn't fit the mold

This show can be summed up in two words, HILARIOUS - and- DISGUSTING! Both are equally true. You will shut your eyes in revulsion only to pry them back open because you don't want to miss anything. Rinse and repeat, about 10 times a show.

The first season was not as lose-your-lunch gross as this second season is turning out to be. If you were proud of yourself for bravely stomaching the first season because the laughs were so damn good, grab multiple barf bags for Season 2. This is NOT a casual suggestion.

That being said, the cast could not be better chosen, esp. the two children, the jokes never stop and they do make a genuine effort to turn those 'look out below!" moments into an actual part of the plot each week. Great writing, great actors and very, VERY funny, just also- super duper gross-out GROSS. As you run to the bathroom to vomit, you will trip and fall because you are laughing so hard. THAT'S the best way I can describe this show.

( WARNING!! You will see enough of Jason Jones' naked, hairy body in tighty-whiteys to last 20 lifetimes. Good looking guy, very talented and if I never see his body again, it will be too soon. Please, TBS, no more JJ in dirty underwear, I'm begging you....)

So they aren't kidding when they say this is a dark comedy. It had some good moments but I don't think it's something I want to continue watching. If you enjoy that type of show then you will enjoy this one. I recommend at least giving this one a shot.

Season one was so much better than season two. I'm struggling to continue to watch season two.... After the ending of season one I was interested to see where they took it, what this big secret was that landed them in the hot water...but season 2 is just playing around with a lot of nothing. Kind of disappointing I'm going to give it a few more episodes (after 6, the one I just finished) before I call it quits....

The little girl in this show has the most hilarious facial expressions... the casting director of this show did an excellent job because all the actors fit their characters perfectly. This show is the height of sarcasm, wit, and dark comedy. I thought season 1 was great, then I realized just how much I missed it when season 2 started, and each episode gets better. It is rare when a comedy actually makes me laugh, so I'm sticking with this one and highly recommend this show!

VERY FUNNY. REALLY FUN. I don't think most shows / movies labelled "Comedy" are. You're lucky to get two chuckles from what they give you. And some aren't funny AT ALL. But this is quirky, smart, believable, AND funny.

These parents are not model parents, they are trying to be but constantly fail. A goofy father and a progressive mother who likes to get high.
It is good that the comedy is taking place on the road and not in the same living room or kitchen. In every episode you are to meet new people and experience a different set. The possibilities in a road trip are endless and the creators seem willing to explore them. So far the comedic timing is good but keep in mind that the humor might not be for everyone. It is raunchy, vulgar and awkward.
