I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Geico Cavemen commericals...I think they are so funny.

I love the Hallmark ones...and the sentimental coffee ones.

I like the cozy Walgreen ones that advertise the town of "Perfect"

One of my favorite retro commercials is the Crest Cavity Commercials...with the Cavity Creeps, and Toothopolis...so very cool.

I also liked the McDonald's ones from the 80's and early 90's.



As for the ones that I don't like:

I always hated Chester Cheeto...he was so annoying.

I hate the ones that advertise different chewy candy...and show kids heads blowing up and exploding like candy.

I'm sure there are more...I can't think of them right now.

I really hate the Geico caveman ads. Now that ABC is developing a show around this concept I think I will cancel my insurance in protest!

I loved the old Got Milk commercials but not the new ones

I haven't seen a Hallmark commercial that hasn't made me cry- especially during those Hallmark Movies.

I am tired of Verizon... we get it you're better move on!

There's one for a pregnancy test (EPT I think) I love it cuz the tag line is "The best stick you'll ever pee on."

LOL  no I'm just mad that ABC cancelled a good show like The Nine and is developing a show about the Geico Caveman and another 30 show about guys who Carpool...are we really that hard up for material?

That Caveman sitcom is gonna flop big time for sure.  Those Cavemen are funny in 15-30 second commercials, but a whole 30 minutes (24 minus commercials) of them?  The Flintstones has already been done ;D

I can't really think of many that I like but I have quite a few I don't...

I HATE...
Any commercials for ED (erectile dysfunction) especially when I'm watching with my daughter.

Lamisil toe-fungus monster.

Many of the Skittles commercials.

Dr. Scholls "Gellin'.

I think it's for Honeycomb cereal, the kids with really big mouths.

Hardee's, these people can't eat quietly.

Axe cologne.

Sonic Drive-in, people in the front seat of the car talking about the food. 


I LIKE...

Captain Morgan

The M&M's/Addams Family

Hallmark

Nope, never seen it. It maybe a local one for your area.

McD's Filet-o-Fish is always a hit or miss. I guess it depends on where a particular McD gets those frozen fish squares from that determines the quality.

I've seen this a few times but the last time I saw it I noticed they changed it.  Instead of saying "The best stick you'll ever pee on." it says "The best stick you'll ever, well you know.".  I guess people complained.

are we really that hard up for material?



Have you looked at what's available lately?????  ;D ;D ::)  I'd say so.  Trash Jericho, put on more reality shows, yeah, there you go.  I know they are bringing Jericho back at least temporarily, but they are putting the "encore" summer episodes on Friday nights.  Friday nights in the summer?  Who's home?  I love the show, but Friday night is our jazz in the park night.  But I agree with the assessment that they are going to flop.

Has anyone here checked out http://www.cavemancrib.com ?  I think by doing different things (knocking vs. clicking invitation) you get different beginnings (not 100% positive).  You can go in and check out their place (some of it is interactive, like answering machine, toilet flushing, magazine, etc.).  Entertaining if you are bored.
