Grungy, in-your-face claymation comedy about a family of cavemen in prehistorical times, as they struggle to survive in a dangerous world, armed only with their wits - or half of them, anyway. The characters are seen involved in awkward, uncomfortable or plain stupid activities. Grandpa's solution to everything is to hit it on the head with his club; Mother has no idea how to look after her baby; and they all indulge in bodily functions in public. Watch them as they fight dinosaurs, discover fire and lose it again immediately, and, of course, hit each other on the head with clubs. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Well Worth Watching
23 October 2004 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

"The Gogs" are a rather dysfunctional family living in pre-historic times who spend most of their time trying to find shelter, or avoid large animals, or both.

There's Grandpa, a flatulent old geezer who thinks that any problem can be resolved with the use of his club...

There's Father, a witless man who tries to come up with good ideas to feed and clothe his family, but the plans that he develops to fulfil his ideas invariably end up with him in the bottom of the pit, or the stomach of the dinosaur.

There's Son, who spends most of his time looking dumb, blowing mucous out of his nose. And yes, it's green...

There's Daughter, the clever one of the bunch, who comes up with designs for flying machines, physics equations and other such stuff...

There's Mother, the undisputed head of the family, who brokers no crap from any family member, dispatching ne-er do wellers with a quick fist in the jaw...

and there's Baby, who spends most of his time screaming loudly, pooping, making maniacal faces during storms and draining his mother's breasts or milk faster than a good DVD shop can drain your credit card.

A brilliantly written and filmed series from Wales (the Welsh do know how to laugh), replete with humour from the characters themselves, along with nice touches like the occasional piece of newspaper blowing past in a storm.
