So, for quite sometime now, I’ve been looking for a TV show, so eye-popping, so entertaining and enormously compelling as was Mad Dogs, and for a minute I thought I would never find any, until TBS’ The Detour came along.
The Detour gave me a break from those boring sitcoms that excel in forced humour, repetitive sub-plots, predictable storylines and confined indoor shoots.
Two episodes into The Detour and I knew I had found my most Favorite 2016 TV series.
The Detour is more like Vacation The Movie, only that it’s more captivating and long!
The series, which was actually inspired by a real couple’s vacations’ experiences; is the show you ought to be obsessed with right now!
It revolves around Nate Parker (played by Jason Jones) who takes his family of one wife and two kids on a road trip. The road trip to Florida is filled with loads of drama, and packed with mounds of raunchy humour!
At no point does the Series get monotonous; its fairly fast-paced, the cast is amazing in bringing out their roles, and Liam Carroll who plays the couple’s son is just too hilarious and quick-witted.
The first season is 10-episodes long, with each episode not exceeding 30 minutes.
If you like mature comedy shows, you definitely will love this!….and that shocking revelation at ending of the first season; who could have see that coming!?
I cannot wait for 2017, to catch the second season!
This show is just too incredible, to say the least!
