Audience Reviews for The Detour: Season 1

    Turns low brow humor into high art. Brilliant writing and just good fun.
  • May 18, 2020
    Why does this show feel the need to be soooo politically charged? It's funny without all the BS. Btw, the constitution was written when there were machine guns around so... just an example of how your silly wokeness doesn't make your show better.

    Chaos, der Spaß macht.
  • Apr 10, 2017
    Wildly inappropriate, but hilarious.
  • Jan 25, 2017
    i was hoping for funny...i should have known better when i saw it was on 'try to hard' TBS.

    Sometimes you just need to have a little fun. For 30 minutes just relax and laugh. The casting is perfect, characters are likeable and man can this show be funny! Sure it's crude and raunchy at times but like I said, relax and just enjoy. Natalie Zea is great in it! Funny and gorgeous. Can't wait for season 2

    Detour is basically a National Lampoon's Vacation cross country road trip, extended into a hilarious knee slapping comedy series! It has a great cast of characters and is filled with head spinning twists that will keep you captivated and endlessly laughing. But maybe wait till your kids are a little older before watching it.

    I ended up watching @Detour on a @Delta Flight, I remember seeing commercials for it, but the air time must have sucked, because I never got to see it when it was on TV. I loved the Syracuse, NY references, because that is where I'm from. @TBS I can't believe this isn't the number one comedy on TV. This is the first show in a very long time to get me to laugh out loud. I don't laugh too often, but this show had me in tears during some parts. I'm so glad that there will be a second season for Detour.

    I love this show. So clever and extremely entertaining every second! I wish there were more episodes in season 1 and 1 hour long. Can't wait to see more...!

    Oh, I love this show! The trashy characters that deserve to burn in hell, failed parenthood... Yeah, life may punch you many times, but in the end you just stand up and go on
