Planet of the Apes

By Donald Liebenson

Those immersed in the Planet of the Apes universe will go bananas for this DVD-only boxed set containing all 14 episodes of this obscure 1974 TV series based on the 1968 sci-fi classic. Ron Harper and James Naughton star as two astronauts who crash-land on the simian-ruled planet. Roddy McDowall (Cornelius in the Apes films) is Emmy-worthy as "renegade ape" Galen, who befriends them and helps them elude capture by the relentless General Urko.

At its best, this series presented thoughtful stories in which the fugitives bridged the human-ape gap ("The Deception"). Of special interest is the episode "The Liberators," which was never broadcast during the series' fleeting run. Notable guest stars include Marc "Beastmaster" Singer ("The Gladiators"), Roscoe Lee Browne ("Tomorrow's Tide"), Sondra Locke ("The Cure"), and a pre-Bad News Bears Jackie Earle Haley ("The Legacy").

I was only 8 years old in 1974 and my first love was Pete Burke! The episode "The Deception" was very skillfully written, directed and portrayed very exceptionally. James Naughton has very exspressive eyes and a natural acting ability. The closing scene with the kiss between Pete and Fauna complimented this fantastic episode! The Apes took a chance and it worked!
