    An utterly bland exercise--a slacker buddy comedy with a more elaborate makeup budget in which the protagonists happen to be cavemen.
  2. Cavemen is itself an embarrassment because it's not funny. At all.
  3. 20
    Cavemen is pretty bad. It's definitely among the stalest pieces of bread in the loaf, which already includes 'Two and a Half Men' and 'According to Jim.' And it's certainly the most tasteless.
  4. 25
    A show that was once dumb and offensive is now dumb and pointless.
  5. 10
    It’s easy to see why preview DVDs weren’t distributed–the show just isn’t funny.
  6. A show that is no longer offensively not funny, just pointless and not funny.

    Let's pretend that the plot's worth recounting.
  8. It ought to be said that this strange slice of life about three male cavepersons making their way in the workaday world has its charms, even for those of us who would have preferred a sitcom peopled by that lizard.
  9. Cavemen, set in some version of San Diego where people speak with Southern accents, doesn’t have moments as much as microseconds suspended from any attempt at narrative.
  10. What few laughs were once there [in the orginal pilot] have now been effectively removed.
  11. 25
    It became clear to me that Cavemen is extinct on arrival.

    Only Kroll managed to wring any comedy out of this ham-handed premise.
  13. The producers must have been living in a cave when they wrote this inept, misfiring social satire.
