Planet of the Apes Series Episode 1

In 1968 movie audiences were stunned and riveted by Planet of the Apes, an allegorical sci-fi film based on a book by French novelist Pierre Boulle. It quickly garnered four sequels, a TV show, a comic series, and even a cartoon. Now this franchise has new relevance as prequel, reboot movies draw in new fans. But how does the original Charlton Heston film hold up 46 years later? Jakob, Arnie, and Stuart review the original Planet of the Apes in this bonus episode.
