Review of "Hit
the Road" 10/27/17 by
Airs Tuesdays, 10pm on Audience Network.
This show started out kind of silly, but it got funnier
as it went along, and it made me really laugh a lot toward
the end. Stick with it and you should enjoy it. Jason
Alexander ("Seinfeld") stars as a dad, Ken, who's taken his
family out on the road to sing (similar to The Partridge
Family or the Osmonds), but they're a very dysfunctional
family. This is not a kids' show and has a lot of four
letter words. They do a great job of spoofing The Partridges
and other groups like that.
Ken and his wife, Meg
(Amy Pietz), used to have a minor hit in the 80's, and we
learn that she was a bit of a slut. They're desperate to
relive their youth and to become rich and famous. The son,
Alex (Nick Marini), is a pothead, and the daughter, Ria
(Natalie Sharp), is following in mom's footsteps. The
younger daughter, Casey (Maddie Dixon-Porrier), is very
smart and much more aware of things than she should be. They
also have an adopted black son named Jermaine, who doesn't
really want to be there. The kids are really funny. You
really have to see it to enjoy it. Despite all of their
dysfunction, the family keeps trying, no matter what.
If you have DirecTV, then you already have this channel.
Otherwise, you'll have to either switch to DirecTV to watch
it, or pay for
DirectNow ($35 per month) to get this and many
other original shows. They also have a free trial.

Hit The Road is about the greatest family
band you’ve never heard of – yet! This
chaotically dysfunctional family of would-be
rock/pop stars traverse the country in a
cramped tour bus sacrificing privacy,
comfort and dignity while in search of fame
and fortune. Struggling to navigate their
lives and relationships while juggling
what’s best for the family versus what’s
best for the band, they invariably end up
making very unfortunate decisions. Yet
nothing will stop them from claiming their
rightful place in pop history.
