I watched it this afternoon. It was absolutely terrible. I think they expected people to say, "Look! It's cavemen doing normal everyday activities! That's hilarious!" and they decided the didn't need any jokes because that alone would be funny enough. They were wrong. :-t

Just wanted to be politically correct if there's a soul out there who actually raves about Cavemen. ;-7

Not terribly impressed by Cavemen either.

Those Neanderthals need to stick to 15-30 second commercials. The one in the airport on the moving walkway is great without him saying a word.

I didn't like it either, to me it seemed kinda racist. I only watched the first episode but I remember a few times thinking that the jokes they were making about the cavemen were just race jokes you have heard before about non cavemen, its been awhile since I saw it so I don't remember the exact instances but if someone wants examples ill put myself thru the misery and watch the episode again to find some.

I actually thought the second episode was kind of funny. The cavewoman was a trip.

Carpoolers wasn't as funny the second episode.

I'll watch them both once more and go from there.

I thought the first episode of Cavemen was solid, the 2nd was a disaster (until the final scene), and the 3rd was surprisingly funny.

I give every series that grabs my attention at least 5 episodes. So 2 eps left before I make my decision.

I've seen a couple episodes... it's not as bad as I expected, but it's far from a great show.

I really hate that snooty caveman Nick... too bad he wasn't eaten by a T-Rex.
