    Completely axed.

    By Jaykeson, Dec 31, 2013

    This was a great comedy. I never got the chance to see every episode when it first aired, but I think I was able to see at least half the series.

    I was surprised to see that Erik von Detten was in it at the time, as I thought he was still a main part of the Dinotopia cast. I was a fan of Dinotopia at the time (I would actually watch anything with dinosaurs in it though). I found out later that Dinotopia had actually been cancelled.

    As for this show, it revolved around a family named the Savages, hence the series name. The family consisted of 5 brothers and a single father. The father had divorced the boy's mother as she was actually crazy. I think he mentioned that she had tried to put shredded glass in his meatloaf or something? The boys all have different personalities - for example Sam (Andrew Eiden) is the sensitive guy, Chris (Erik von Detten) is the dumb athletic jock etc. The boys always manage to get into trouble but also usually always band together when things get too far out of hand (which they usually do). In some ways I found this to be a little like 'Malcolm In The Middle' (also about a family of brothers who get into or create trouble). I guess that is one of the reasons why I enjoyed it.

    I don't understand why this show was canned though, it was much better than some of the other stuff that passes as comedy. I could have been a fan of this show.moreless

    Complete Savages is based around five different teenage boys, who live with their widowed father. It shows their lives and the mayhem they cause. Very funny.

    Complete Savages must be one of the funniest programmes on Nickelodeon. It's based on five teenage boys and their widowed father, who tries to keep them out of trouble. The mayhem they cause is hilarious and will definetley make you laugh. Each of the boys are different and it shows their individual problems, which bring the show up more on the funny scale. Unlike most of the shows on children's channels it uses the words such as a** and cr*p. Due to this, I'd say it's suitable for teenagers and if adults have nothing better to do, they should watch it also. Jack, the one that is a bit of a lady's man, cheats on girls and two times them and turns into into a comical thing, which gives the viewer the impression that it's cool to cheat on girls. That is really my own downfall on the show, but I'm not really bothered about that kind of thing, but I know most women/girls will be.moreless

    This is the funniest show I've ever seen.

    By Manex21, Jan 08, 2007

    Complete Savages, seems to break all the boundaries of modern T.V and deliver an incredible amount of comedy into a half-hour block, because, personally I'm tired of all the shows that always have the women, pointing out how stupid every man is, but this show allows some of the children to be total fools, such as T.J and Kyle trying to get on the Stupid Idiots web site, and become famous, but it also shows Sam, trying to be a kind, and intelligent person, which is difficult for someone in his family, but the show also brings in Angela, Sam's Girlfriend, and with her they show how Condescending people can be sometimes, with Sam's struggle to stay ahead and prove himself.moreless

    Whenever Chris Savage wants to torment one of his little brothers, he puts his arm up, and puts them in a headlock (aka. "The Pitt") and they can see if his deotorant is really working. The savages show the epitome of manhood!

    This show NEEDS to come back. It was great! I'm a huge fan of Erik Von Detten, and the "Pitt"/headlock thing is hilarious, believe me, I know how that feels. I don't know what ABC was thinking when the cancelled this great show. It had the potential to be one of the greatest teen sitcoms of it's time. I wish that television networks would think more carefully before they cancel shows all willie-nillie. There seems to be no sitcoms that teenage boys can relate too, this was the only one. Do you hear me ABC?! You made a huge mistake. Bring it back!moreless

    This show was so funny!!!!

    By Raimundo_Young, Feb 27, 2006

    I regret not seeing enough episodes, it was so hilarious!!!!! I especially like T.J. (or Jason Dolley). It was such a funny show and I wish they had more of it, Oh man was this such a good show!!!!! The only reason that I saw it was for Jason Dolley, because I\'m friends with his brother, and Jason is in my P.E. class.... But yeah Complete Savages was a very very very very very very very very very very very GOOD show!!! It was so funny, and I want it back SO bad! The make-up crew did an excellent job with Jason because he looks VERY different in real life (and he\'s in eigth grade!!!) Ok thats all. :)moreless

    fantastic show. utterly helarious and abc made a mistake getting rid of it. It is doing fabulous in the U.K and rightly so! They only made a few episodes unfortunately but everyone one of those were unique and really funny! The best show on nickelodeon by a long way and in a long time. Sam, chris, kyle, TJ and chris make the whole show a must see program! You have to see this!
