Critic Reviews for Hit the Road Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Hit the Road is relentlessly broad and determinedly offensive.

Top Critic

The writers have so many fart, incest and lame political correctness jokes that episodes of Hit the Road run between 27 and 31 minutes, one of those misguided cable comedies that make you yearn for broadcast network restrictions in content and time.

Oct 17, 2017 | Full Review…

Given how small the bus is and how many Swallows there are, they make a rule for coexistence: no "No. 2s" in the RV. Unfortunately, there is a lot of No. 2 on "Hit the Road." In fact, the show is full of it.

Oct 13, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The 10-episode Hit The Road tries to play to Tony winner Alexander's strengths as patriarch Ken Shallow but ends up being low-rent George Costanza without being anything but annoying.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

It's terrible.

Oct 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Hit the Road is like The Partridge Family in the upside down. While Alexander is still masterful at getting laughs, there is a cynical quality to the series that takes the fun out.

Audience Reviews for Hit the Road: Season 1

  • Dec 20, 2017
    I found myself more than several times rolling with laughter at this dysfunctional musical family's follies. Jason Alexander is wonderful as the persistently ambitious patriarch of this modern day family of road weary troubadours. Many F-Bomb galore. This is not your Grandparents Patridge Family that's for sure. Each member of the family supplies their own issues or neuroses to the mix of the family's inharmonious lunacy. Kudos to the series creators. Having an adopted hypochondriac son is purely an inspired comedic decicion. I for one am hooked and can't wait what they cook up for the 2nd season.
