Starring Stacey Cadman in the title role, it reveals that teenage life hasn't evolved all that much as the heroine takes viewers on a journey to a place before time began, but where problems of bad hair, bad fashion, boys and sibling rivalry still take precedence over survival.Written by
I'm watching on the limited version known as "Cavegirl Rocks" and I've not even seen all of those yet, still got two more to go, but I've seen enough to be able to tell you, as far ad Season One goes, this is cute, small as it is, and aimed at children. You'd have to be very hard for it not to bring a smile to your face.
Gorgeous scenery? Sure. But definitely trumped by the wildly energetic buck-skinned little flash running this way and that way across the screen.
Okay, I also thought, wow, that's a kid running around in her underwear on the BBC, but closer investigation reveals that Stacey Cadman was in her early twenties when this show was done. She is amazing in the part, she comes across as about fifteen. And as winsome as only a young teenager can be! Wily too...
It is as Cavegirl sums it up: Very easy to be clever within that group, mostly a lot of idiots. I find Dad to be a very confusing character, because he is too quick to dole out punishment to Cavegirl whom he adores. Mum is the more dependable one. Gran is round-the-bend cuckoo nuts with a vengeance. Big Sis is the femme fatale.
Small, but likable.
There is more to this, like, it is absolutely more than the sum of its parts. The acting seems minimal from the other lot, but all in all, effective. I am already sensing the loss the unavailability of all the rest holds, for I'd never get to see the other episodes on DVD, and seven episodes is just wetting my appetite.
Come on, release 'em all!
CAVEGIRL really rocks!
