Default Anyone watching Cavemen?

My GOD - as bad as I thought this show could be, It's actually WORSE. Not even one slightly funny incident before the first commercial break.

I was sort of hoping for so stupid it's funny, but not even close - just ....lame.

Yeah, it was really bad. Could have been funny, but it is not. Oh well.

I saw it, but was distracted most of the time. The guy from Reno 911 was pretty funny and if he is going to be a regular, the show could have potential. I'll give it a few episodes to get it right, remember Seinfeld wasn't any good it's first season either.

SWMBO and I were watching it and about 15 minutes in she stopped it and said "this sucks" and it has since disappeared from our Tivo.

Just seemed to me that they took the script from a 'black urban yuppie' comedy script that was deemed 'too racially charged' and replaced every instance of 'black man' with 'caveman'.

It was a mildly amusing commercial spot but there's just not enough meat on that bone to make 22-43 minutes of program with.

Here's to hoping that someone puts a bullet in that dog before its next airtime.

I could tell it was probably going to suck just from the previews ive seen. I never really even found those GEICO commercials funny.

Were you watching in a freshly painted room with no ventilation?

This goddamned joke should have ended with the very first Geico commercial. It was clever. Not funny, but clever. So easy, a caveman could do it...and a caveman gets offended. Ha Ha fu*king Ha. That was clever. Not gonna make me buy car insurance, but at least it was sort of clever. Now, on to the next commercial.

But like all good things that should end, they dragged it out over an entire series of commercials that all rested on the same stale concept. To make it into a teevee show just shows how pathetically inept and uncreative Hollywood is these days.

And I swear, if I see a TV show or movie starring that smarmy little asswipe gecko with the aussie accent, I'm gonna make someone pay...
