Critic Reviews for The Detour Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (11)

The Detour is ruthlessly adult stuff - surely too frank and out-there for some viewers - but it's intrinsically honest, convulsively hilarious and oddly endearing.

This crazily quilted and frequently laugh-out-loud comedy has already done pretty well for itself.

Top Critic

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.

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.

The Detour is pretty consistently funny but the humor tends to be filled with sexual innuendo that some viewers will find offensive. For others, it will be just fine.

This is obviously not a high road The Detour is traveling. But those with a taste for cheerful vulgarity might find it very funny... if the actual goal here is belly laughter, so far so grody.

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.

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.

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.

Apr 8, 2016 | Full Review…

A ribald but bumpy road-trip comedy that wants to be more than just a slapstick retread of "National Lampoon's Vacation" (which already got a retread last year in theaters). But after several episodes, the show can't quite find its way.
