Queer Caveman TV?

It looks like I'm not the only one who enjoys those GEICO caveman commercials. Now it looks like those evolutionarily-challenged ad men might get their own television series. I have to admit, I usually stop what I'm doing and watch when one of those commercials comes on. I like the way they've developed the story from one ad to the next. And, is it just me, or does anyone else get a slight "gay vibe" from one or two of the cavemen? After all, only one of them appears to have a girlfriend. (In the latest commercial he announces they're getting back together.) My advice to the producers: make at least one of your cavemen gay. Even better, put him in an "evolutionarily discordant" relationship with a modern gay man. Think of the comedic possibilities! After all, there's already been at least one movie with gay cavemen. And it boosts your chances of success with at least one niche market that already has a couple of its own networks. And if the folks who don't think cavemen jibe with Genesis come down on you (and I've got $5 that says at least some of them will) you'll need all the support you can get.

  1. Watching those caveman commercials is a major guilty pleasure for me. Count me in as someone who’ll be watching the pilot AND series cancellation next TV season.
