I was reading Geico on Wikipedia. One link leads to another and that's how I find this out. Let's hope it's funny enough to keep my attention… :)

I'm pretty sure that this means the world is ending. Seriously I'm going to have to either sue someone or blow them up. It's bad enough inflicting those stupid ass cavemen on me for a minute at a time, but a freakin half hour at a time. I would rather stick a lit cigar in both of my eyes than watch that crap. How horrible has tv gotten that they are turning to commercials for show ideas. I wonder when CNN will give the Geico Gecko his own half hour news/interview show. Man am I glad I have a choice and don't have to watch stupid cavemen shows. It's funny that people complain about commercials, then will line up to watch a half hour long one. It's like complaining about paying taxes and then buying a lottery ticket. But thats another rant.
I'm a ex-DAT, which means all ya'll are crunchies, and I swing a mean hammer.

The civilized would should be ashamed, what good is power if you do not stop things like Darfur??

I seriously do not know how to respond to such a statement.

The Gecko is my idol!

Yeah, definitely a rip-off. Although I never really thought “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer” was funny. But then again, I don't think the Geico cavemen are funny either.

I doubt the show will even last a season.

How bad was TV when Max Headroom was made into a TV series? I hear the really annoying talking baby from the Quizno's commercials also had a show for a while.

Actually, I quite enjoyed Max Headroom.

Meh. If they make a live action “Erin Esurance” movie, I'm moving to Canada.

I wasn't trying to imply that it was bad, just that studios were taking ideas from commercials before TV went to shit.

The thing that gets me about Erin Esurance is that her name was obviously supposed to be Erin Surance, but the suits on top thought that wouldn't be obvious enough to us retarded pleb consumers drooling in front of the tube.

But if that turns into a cartoon, what's its target audience? Teens+ who think she's hot? Because kids won't know who she is. So it can't be a Nick/Saturday type of cartoon.

Mine too….perhaps because he doesn't SAY ANYTHING and it's just so subtle. XD

I knew about this show idea for a while. I just can't see them being able to do much with that caveman premise for very long. It got old after one commercial of it.

The world may truly end when they do a TV show about Priceline's Negotiator. Or would that be a former starship captain wearing a wig?

It's a running gag that wasn't really funny in the first place. 30 seconds of it is bad enough. But a half hour?? I would have to scratch my eyes out.

I agree. I thought the commercials were pretty neat, but nothing worth dragging out to this much of an extreme. Sitcoms have always had a rocky history, but of all the half assed ideas to come about…


I hear there was a good script for the show that was described as “one of the funniest half hours I've ever read”. But the same person who mentioned this (some blog about TV shows, I can't remember the name) said that the script he read was passed up in favor of what we all just saw. :/

Why don't they just give one to the gecko? He's a shitload funnier. That is, if he can decide once and for all whether or not he's British or Australian. He keeps flip-flopping between accents.

Seriously, what happened to the good old non-Scottish gecko?

Nuthin like seeing a bunch of metrosexual cave men make fools of themselves
