  1. 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.

    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.
