  • HEY! When on your third episode, a one episode character is more important than any of your three leads, that's a sign that your show has no future.

    I know you've heard this story before. I was bored. There was nothing to do. I was at home and all I had was my computer and my broadband connection. I logged onto to see if there was something good to watch. There wasn't. But then I spotted it: Cavemen. I'd heard the idea and said, "That is so damn stupid, I can't possibly think it'll be any good." Surely it couldn't be as bad as I expected it to be. I loaded up "Cavewoman".

    It was worse.

    The show was more than just "not funny", it was the anti-funny, a show that kills any smile that might cross your lips. For someone who hadn't watched the show it was incomprehensible, and though this can be acceptable if a show has been on for seasons, this was the third episode of a highly episodic show. The episode ended and I had no idea who any of the characters were, just that they were cavemen, that cavemen were just a group of guys hanging around, and that cavewomen had hairy arms and legs. She was in the show more than the three of them. That's insane. She's a one episode character, and her screen time completely overwhelmed the time of all three of the leads combined. The entire story revolved around her. The episode wasn't about the three leads making choices and the consequences they led to, it was about them reacting to how she acted. That's not just bad television, that's bad story telling. I've got sort of a global complaint on the show too. I know that some of you think that it's great because it's dealing with racism or some crap like that, but let's be honest for a second: the entire concept of the show is racist. "Hey, black people! We understand racism now, because we've made a show about unevolved humans!" Yeah, that's on the more racist side of television show concepts.

    A one joke concept created a bad show, the bad show had a horrible episode. This is bad television, plain and simple.moreless
  • Much deeper than it looks...

    I think we shouldn't just watch that TV show like a plain sitcom. OK, there are Cavemen, burlesque situations.

    But it is a way to see how people respond to someone different. That looks or seems to be different. The question of the embarrasment, of the shame of being seen with someone, going out with someone who's not "of their kind"... stuff like that *do* exist. And if people really see it's stupid, now put a Black man, or an Asian, or a Native, or an Arab, any minority in any country in this world and you'll realize that not only this is stupid, but actually *really* sad.

    I hope the show goes on.moreless
  • In this episode, the 3 cavemen get sucked into the newest frozen yogurt craze which mirrors "pinkberry" which is very popular in Los Angeles-- however the question is, do they go for the amazing yogurt, or the hot cavechick behind the counter?moreless

    The show was good before this episode, but this made it great! They really need to balance these guys out by keeping giving the girls more to do. Having the 3 guys plus the 3 girls (or in this case 4, if you add maurice and heather!)makes it more like FRIENDS, etc. (only with cavemen)-- but if they want it to stand-out, they have to tap into the "caveman" culture and not ignore it. This episode really did that. It wasn't just about the cavemen standing for some unknown minority. It played up their history and world in a way that made it stand out. Also, it was the guys and the girls this time. Since ABC has been promoting this show as a mandate-- they should have cute and funny chicks in addition to the snarky guy characters. For whatever reason, this episode stood out from the first two because it really seemed to come together-- like a REAL SHOW, rather than a fledging one. Nice job to the writers and the entire cast on this one! I hope they bring the character of Heather back for more... and when will we see a CAVEKID for that matter?moreless
  • And God created Cavewoman!

    Cavewoman enters Cavemen's life this week. although I miss last week's episode. (I review a episode of "Bones" so no one miss me) this week's episode is cavewomen and she can be mean. so mean that she pushes one caveman around. I didn't like the episode as much as the premiere epsiode, it has enough jokes to keep this episode afloat. so yo can say it was a hit and miss. So far, I enjoy the series. the flintstones jokes are fun to listern too, especially jokes that are aim at Pebbles. Let's hope the show runs it's coarse, because at 8:30 p.m., I turn off the set. No "Carpoolers" tonight.moreless
  • Better than watching real smoothies any day

    Lame sitcoms featuring regular modern humans have been getting progressively worse since Cheers and Seinfeld. There are no more Doogie Howsers. I don't even waste my time watching the crap of today. But I gave this shoe a chance out of curiosity and am hoping it doesn't get cancelled. Each episode is better than the last. Rock on Cavemen!!! This review needs to be 100 words long so ROCK ON CAVEMEN!!! Lame sitcoms featuring regular modern humans have been getting progressively worse since Cheers and Seinfeld.
