Critic Reviews for Cavemen Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

"Cavemen" has very little going for it. The visual joke of seeing cavemen among us is tired from the get-go, unless you're still laughing over the sight of the alien "ALF" with the Tanner family.

Spun from Geico's car insurance commercials, the new comedy seemed like a sub-stupid idea on paper. In execution, though, it rises to the level of dumb fun. Or at least the first episode pretty much did.

The show still hasn't totally found its tone or its characters. But it's much closer than it was in its revised pilot, which defanged the social humor of the original.

Oct 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The problem with "Cavemen" is that nobody seems to have thought the concept through much beyond that - starting with how to transform a sight gag previously delivered via 30-second increments into a legitimate TV show with actual plots and characters.

I'm not sure what went wrong in the process of adapting the Geico commercials for a 30-minute sitcom, but I thought it would be easy - so easy, in fact, that a caveman could have done it.

It isn't funny.

Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Most of the circumstances are outright gags -- don't expect much subtle humor here. What little depth the show has comes from its allusions to modern race relations.

Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Only [Nick] Kroll managed to wring any comedy out of this ham-handed premise.

Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

It's bad, but because it's not horrible, you might be pleasantly surprised. Probably not. But maybe.

Oct 9, 2019 | Full Review…

A decent cast of comedic actors is diminished by material as funny as a flat tire.

Oct 9, 2019 | Full Review…

"Cavemen" is itself an embarrassment because it's not funny. At all.

Oct 9, 2019 | Full Review…

It's much worse than anticipated.
