Based on the enormously popular and successful Planet of the Apes movies, the 1974 TV series has become a true cult classic.
After their spacecraft travels through a time warp, two astronauts (Ron Harper, James Naughton) from 1981, crash-land back on Earth in a year 3085 - a time when intelligent apes rule and humans have been reduced to servants or pets. Captured by apes and sentenced to death, they are saved by a curious chimpanzee named Galen (Roddy McDowall). But now all three are on the run, trying to keep one step ahead of the gorilla army led by General Urko (Mark Lenard), who is determined to kill the renegades.
PLANET OF THE APES TV Series Set features 14 episodes, including 'The Liberator', which was not aired in the show's 1st run!
Also included is the Planet of the Apes Trailer of the Original Films and the Theatrical Trailer for the Planet of the Apes 2001 Version.
March 21, 3085. Two astronauts land on a strange planet run by apes with human characteristics, including the very savagery that brought the decline of the human race. The astronauts arrived here by traveling through a time warp and after a short stay they realize they are actually stranded on their own planet, Earth, several years in the future. Roddy McDowall returns from the successful films as the star of this television series which had a very short life of 14 episodes. All are included in this collection of the underrated science fiction program.
I still remember the shock at the last scene of the very first "Planet of the Apes" movie. It was so impressive that the sequels and this TV series - even though it was short lived of just handful of episodes - I watched them all. This TV series did not have the overwhelming sensation like the first one but still entertaining enough not to change the channel during the show. If you are fan of the original movies you will enjoy this one too.
The year is 3085 and astronauts Pete Burke and Alan virden fall through a time warp to land on a planet ruled by apes. This series takes place after the original movies and is very entertaining, great viewing not only for science fiction fans but for everyone.
Planet of the apes was such a popular show back in the seventies and a huge hit. The movie they remade later on wasn't quite as good as the original series. Here you have a couple of astronauts who get caught up in time warp and when they land back on earth, the year is 3085 and the discover that apes now rule the planet.
