Just to ensure I don't go down in history as "The Guy Who Liked Cavemen," I have written the following post at Season Pass for Variety.
I went out on a limb for "Cavemen," and they cut it down on me.
Twice at Season Pass I have defended the show (albeit with faint praise), but last week's episode mocked my efforts. I was prepared to not laugh out loud, having been intrigued by an approach that emphasized dry wit over obvious humor, but the most recent airing lacked either. For the first time, I saw "Cavemen" as others have as the worst kind of "Saturday Night Live" skit, all premise and no execution. ...
In the post, I discuss Chuck and Reaper as well, concluding that both have their merits but that neither holds a candle to Mad Men. Let's face it - the best new show of the year was on AMC. The season finale of Mad Men comes Thursday, and I'm sure going to miss it when it's gone.
