The Detour: Season 2 Reviews

July 9, 2019
The Detour hits many of the traditional family sitcom beats, but [Jason] Jones and [Samantha] Bee provide a subversive new shine to old familiar tropes.

Unapologetically raunchy and delightfully weird, 'The Detour' broadcasts a fun-house version of domestic bliss.

Like any good road trip, a glint of insanity in the driver's eye makes things all the more interesting. We may not be overly concerned with where they end up, but whatever Jones and Bee want to throw at this resilient group is fine by us.

That kind of dissonance between classic family hijinks and twisted debauchery is exactly what makes The Detour such a fantastic ride. And if there are bumps along the way ... well, that's all part of the journey.

The Detour's edge is dulled slightly in a second season that's too dependent on the show's trademark shameless and shocking humor, but make no mistake - this is high-quality, brilliant lunacy that works far more often than not.

The Detour is the kind of show that is best consumed in extended viewing. Individually, its episodes can seem slapdash and gratuitously crass. But there's a theme beneath the ribaldry.
