Depends on whether there's a laugh track or not. I don't do laugh track.

Personally, I think the idea of cavemen in modern times could potentially be funny, and I probably wouldn't think of them as the "Geico Cavemen" because two DVRs pretty much keep me from seeing commercials in anything other than live sports.

While the ads are cute ("Gina's here, we're getting back together"), you just know some exec somewhere is going to blow this. I won't hold my breath, but I hope it is good.

Well, it's apparently the sam writer/directors that do the ads. Whether they can sustain for 20 minutes, and as said above, avoid the laugh track, will determine whether it's any good.

But I'll give it a shot.

apparently the caveman show is a drama, not a sitcom

Ack. If you were going to do a movie about a fast food mascot, wouldn't Jack in the Box be a better choice?

I love that pointy-headed sass beast.

I feel like this is the next step to entering those dystopian futures I have seen in so many movies...

If the Aflac Duck stars in his own movie, we know we are all in deep shit.

The time is right for the Sad Indian and the Where's the Beef lady to team up and solve mysteries. Jokko can guest star. OY!
