The way I know a movie is really bad is if I want to get up and leave in the middle of it. With the advent of TIVO, the way I know a TV show is bad is if I hit the "catch up" button to just get to the end of a recorded show. I did that twice last night.
The World Series of poker is over, and LA Ink isn't on till 10, so we don't watch anything on Tuesday nights. So last night I set TIVO to record "Cavemen" and "Carpoolers" figuring they would be awful, but maybe they would surprise. They were both just horrendous examples of unimaginative writing and worn out ideas. I thought the writers had already gone on strike. The only time I laughed in the time we gave to each show was when the one Caveman beet the shit out of the chick in the Caveman mascot outfit. That's it, that's the list.
Run, don't walk, away from these shows. Hell, it's hard to even call Carpoolers a show, since it appears to just be a bunch of tired old scenes from other shows that happen to be set in a car, parking lot, office or home thrown together. When it was all said and done I had to hit TIVO with a rolled up newspaper for even letting me watch that crap.
