Funny if you are not offended by the raunchy humor.
13 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

OK, this is basically a family SitCom, but a Raunchy one. It's about a family, a couple and their 2 kids on a road trip.

Many jokes are derived from the fact that the two kids (around 10-12 y.o.) are starting to have questions (and misunderstandings) about relationships and sex.

The 2 parents are not model parents. It seems like they are trying to be but they constantly fail. A goofy father and a progressive mother who likes to get high.

It is good that the comedy is taking place on the road and not in the same living room or kitchen. In every episode you are to meet new people and experience a different set. The possibilities in a road trip are endless and the creators seem willing to explore them. I doubt this series would be boring or repetitive.

So far (I watched the 2 first episodes) the comedic timing is good but keep in mind that the humor might not be for everyone. It is raunchy and vulgar and awkward. This is not a "DR. Ken" type of family sitcom.

Natalie Zea and the rest of the cast looks good, the script is OK, the pace quick without being hasty and (always a major plus) it doesn't have a fake laugh track.

Overall: It's funny so far, but maybe its humor isn't for everyone. Because ...it is a Road trip after all, anything could happen. And with this particular family get ready for some hilarious situations.
