In mid-September I wrote a post about an upcoming new series. The post was about the new show Cavemen. Well, the show premiered on Tuesday night and thanks to us having a PVR I’m only just now getting around to watching it.
I said in my original post about the show that it was either going to suck because the idea was strange or that the writing would be so good that it would be an excellent show.
There’s more normal Homo Sapiens in the show than there are cavemen, and the cavemen consist of two brothers and an old friend living together in an apartment in San Diego.
If you forget for a moment that the guys are cavemen it’s just like watching a fairly good sitcom about three single guys living together, working and trying to find love in the big city. Well, one of the guys, Joel, has found love. He’s dating a Sape – short for Homo Sapien which is frowned upon in Caveman culture.
In the premiere episode he breaks the news about his new girlfriend to his brother and friend. It’s a big deal!
Oh and like any sitcom with three guys living together one is practical and tries to hold everything together – that’s Joel the one with the Homo Sapien girlfriend. One of the other guys, Nick, is kind of neurotic. He’s been working on his dissertation for a year and hasn’t written a thing. He’s the guy who seems to like analyzing things. Then there’s the screw up, Andy. He’s pining for the girlfriend he left back home and he seems sort of hopeless. I think Joel and Nick will spend a lot of time looking out for Andy.
I don’t know if this show will make it or not, but I liked it enough to watch it again.
Did you see the show? What did you think of it?
