Anything Light and Humorous Must Be Beaten to Death (Geico Cavemen)

The Geico Cavemen series of commercials have been funny and clever in a lighthearted sort of way. Now, the powers that be have taken what is funny in a 30 second venue and expanded it to a 30 minute sit-com. Not only that but they swapped out the actors that could make you laugh with just a look.

This has horrible written all over it.

Have we learned nothing from the "take a good SNL skit and stretch it to an unbearable 2 hour movie" example?

I anticipate a Geico gecko TV show next. Perhaps a Saturday morning series or an Alf-like effort where the gecko interviews a variety of people. It's got to be just around the corner.
