    I started my own thread so I could threadcrap before anyone else did.

    Actually, I don't know why I said spoilers - there is NO WAY anything could spoil this show any more!

    I feel like I've just spent the last several minutes in a dentist's waiting room it's that bad.


    Burn in Hell ABC - and get this crap off the schedule!!!

    Flipped over, watched about 2 minutes. So they look like cavemen, but for all intents and purposes, they are just three slacker types? Boring.

    They supposedly did a complete retool after the preair was released, so it should be all new stuff.

    But it's still bad. I have seen both and the one they aired was actually worse.

    Long...
    I really wish Nielsen overnights were released with per-minute ratings details.

    You know, I could see one episode of Boston Legal with Cavemen in it... it'd fit well. But just not a whole series.

    I've only watched the first 5 minutes so far. I like it. But it would have been better without the cavemen schtick. :)

    Hmm. "Cavemen" without the cavemen. You might be onto something there. ;)

    I always attempt to give a new show at least 1 or 2 weeks to see if it grows on me.

    Not with this show. Deleted after 15 minutes!

    OK I just watched it in its entirety.

    I don't know if you guys got too hung up on them being cavemen, or that they're from a commercial, but I thought the show was hilarious, and I laughed out loud several times! Really good comedic acting and writing. I was thinking while I was watching that this is sort of what those who said they liked "Chuck" but could do without the spy/action elements would like. :)

    - Seriously... it's time to get a big boy wallet.
    - Do you wanna pay?
    - Point taken.

    - Cut it out, OK!
    - No problem, man. It's already in your head.

    :D

    Not near as bad as I thought it would be. Actually I liked it and I'll give another shot next week, if it's not cancelled already. :)

    Seriously though, this thing has tough competition on the other networks in this time slot. I can't see it surviving even if it was Seinfeld reincarnated.

    Not even as much as an upturned lip. I watched the original pilot which was horrible. This is not any better.

    I do think it would be better without the horrible caveman schtick and even worse make-up, but it is simply not good. Horrible writing.

    I liked it. I like the oddly effete cavemen as much as I did in the commercials. I thought the dialogue was amusing, even clever at times. I'm amused at how self-consciously the cavemen parrot the WASP upper class--they play squash, drink cognac, and drive a Boxter (with a box of oranges in the other seat <--that made me laugh for some reason)... And I think they've managed to create some characters with potential for good comedy. I'm going to stick around awhile and see where this goes.

    I know many are predisposed to hating this and for good reason. The leaked "preair" was awful, but I found this Caveman watchable.

    Will keep my SP for a few more weeks and see if it holds up. I can't wait the see the first weeks numbers compared to the second and third ..............That will tell the tale real fast

    I never saw the pre-air, and I went into this expecting to hate it.

    I was surprised. I've seen worse. And several scenes made me laugh. I am sticking with it.

    Agreed. The scene in the cafe had me in stitches (where they translated "coffee and a donut" for the waitress). LOL.

    But the makeup jobs are simply too distracting. They seem three steps down from what's done on the commercials.

    I don't see this lasting, but I'll keep with it...

    I thought the show was pretty funny.

    I plan to keep this SP.
