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.
The writers have so many fart, incest and lame political correctness jokes that episodes of Hit the Road run between 27 and 31 minutes, one of those misguided cable comedies that make you yearn for broadcast network restrictions in content and time.
Given how small the bus is and how many Swallows there are, they make a rule for coexistence: no "No. 2s" in the RV. Unfortunately, there is a lot of No. 2 on "Hit the Road." In fact, the show is full of it.
