ABC is turning it into a sitcom
Interesting. I love the commercials, but I'm not so sure they'll *really* be able to drag this out into a sitcom. Perhaps I'm just short-sighted, but the premise seems better suited to short-form video like commercials.
Cavemen did invent the wheel and discover fire, its only fair that they get their own sitcom.
I wonder how much more car insurance this will sell.
There's a TON of stuff to do in there. See if you can find it all.
Sounds like Encino Man
Remember this classic?
The commercials were good, but I do not think that they would work as anything longer than a commercial.
Oh brother. Why do "they" (TV networks, etc) have to drag everything out? This won't work, in my opinion.
yeah, lets turn the Bud-Weis-Er frogs into a puppet show for children.
You have got to be friggen kidding me, this whole metaphor for a caveman being stupid, is just retarded.
i never thought anything but the very first commercial was funny.
the whole "real cavemen have feelings" angle is utterly pointless and is a horrible running gag.
Has TV gotten so bad that they're now making shows out of commercials?
a new comedy premiering on FOX this Spring!
I'd love to see a Viagra/Cialis sitcom. I wonder what that would be like.
Wait until they make it a movie... since every comic book, video game and old TV show have already gone that route...
Before I was even done reading the article, I was thinking the same thing as everyone else: what works as a :30 commercial will probably bomb as a 30:00 series.
They did have a comedy show about cavemen back in the '60s. Anyone remember It's About Time? Goofy show. Essentially it was Gilligan's Island set in the Stone Age, with astronauts landing in prehistoric times. Then for the second season, the astronauts returned to the 20th century with some of their caveman friends.
I don't know whether the cavemen got car insurance, though.
[Review] The acting was very stiff.... [/Review]
hah. funny website. i'd be curious to see it. why not? i don't need to judge it til then. and i find the commercials pretty humorous. also a fan of the good ole caveman lawyer..... ahhh, we miss you phil
yep.....this is why i don't have a TV.
Reminds me of the sketches from SNL with Phil Hartman as a caveman lawyer transplated to modern times.
Even with him in it, the sketches were only good for a few laughs.
Is it me or does every Geico commercial piss me off?
Beyond annoying. Beyond comprehension. ABC Network.
(shameless ripoff of XM)
They are some of the best commercials, but seriously how could you make a show out of them, they could get monotanous very quickly.
One of my favorite Geico commercials was the one with Charo speaking trash-Spanglish. So funny, I felt like throwing up!
I love the commercials, and I guess I'm not as pessimistic as some of the people here. I think they can make it work. I'm not saying the definitely will, just that's it's possible and that I hope they do.
If the show lasts for more than four hours, you need to see a doctor.
the commercials were never funny, and dragging this lame concept out in to a tv show will be unbearable.
[REVIEW]I just could not get the thrust of it at all[/REVIEW]
I'd be hard pressed to find a better pun.
