Tonight, the hilarious TBS comedy, The Detour, returns for its third season. Last season, the Parker family moved to New York City, where they ran into Robin’s con-man father, J.R., who managed to get them involved in one of his seedy plans. J.R. was illegally obtaining pieces of an infamous statue of Saddam Hussein that he planned to reconstruct on one of his properties. At the end of the season, J.R. had kidnapped Delilah & Jareb and took them with him to Cuba. After rescuing their children, Robin, Nate, and the kids accidentally found themselves in a boat with Cubans who were defecting to America. However, the Parkers were still wanted by the FBI for the questionable import/exporting business J.R. got them mixed up in.

As the third season begins, the Parkers have been on the run for the past year, traveling from state to state, trying to keep a low profile from the USPIS. They now find themselves in Alaska, during the period when it is sunny 24 hours a day. They are tired of running and decide to try make a home there, but as usual, nothing ever really goes as planned for the Parkers!

This show constantly has me laughing out loud. I love how the series manages to completely reinvent itself each season (even down to the theme song). Each year the Parkers find themselves in some new setting/predicament, and despite their best intentions, things only get worse for them as the season progresses. However, dumb luck always seems to prevail with the Parkers. I also really enjoy the show’s no-holds-barred humor. The writers don’t worry about being politically correct, and no situation is too inappropriate. The cast is fantastic and really play well off one another. Jason Jones & Natalie Zea make Nate and Robin feel like a realistic couple, and the actors who play their children (Ashley Gerasimovich & Liam Carroll) are hilarious. This season, Graham Greene (Longmire) joins the cast as one the Parkers’ new Alaskan neighbors.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Run,” the Parkers finally settle in Alaska after a year on the lam, believing it to be the last place anyone would look for them, but their lies and deceits soon come back to haunt them.

Catch up with the Parkers in Alaska tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording This Is Us, LA to Vegas, The Mick, The Flash, Black Lightning, and Mosaic.

Last week was boring because I didn’t get my weekly fix of Bull, but thankfully my suffering is over because it’s back this week. There’s something amazing about a show that combines a wonderful script with such an excellent cast. Every episode is better than the last, but I am anxious to see if they will ever find a woman who can handle Bull in a relationship. Time will tell.

On tonight’s episode, “Kill Shot,” a widow hires Bull to help represent her when the police decide that she is the most likely suspect in orchestrating her wealthy husband’s death, making it look like a home invasion gone wrong.

To see if Bull can help this widow beat the court, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, Lethal Weapon, This Is Us, and Chicago Med.
