A family takes a road trip to Florida and has the adventure of a lifetime. At first they planned a plane ride but they skipped it to drive to the vacation spot, only to discover that it's a huge mistake.
The Parkers are definitely not lowlifes, but The Detour does relish in its own muck. Still, regardless of whether it's your style of comedy or not, the show ultimately is not something that feels particularly fresh or essential.
It doesn't take long (maybe five minutes into Episode 2, when Robin describes the taste of semen to her pre-teen kids) before The Detour begins to collapse under the constant strain of trying to shock us.
An attempt to deliver the birds-and-the-bees speech veers into a graphic argument about gratification. Somehow the action manages to incorporate Judge Reinhold and not a representative from child services.
Audacious, pause-to-laugh hysterical, and yet somehow endearingly tasteful, The Detour is the comedy for everyone disappointed in last summer's Vacation reboot, and for anyone who enjoys laughter, really.
Some viewers may take a little time to shake off the show's occasional misses, but when the show hits, it hits with sharp and intelligent writing, versatile direction and performances that honor the insanity of it all.
