Episode Seventeen-Planet of the Apes

“A planet where apes evolve from men?”  This and other mind boggling questions are tackled in this month’s epic podcast on the “Planet of the Apes” series of movies.  In our TV/Book corner we review Stephen King’s post-apocalyptic spiritual spectacular: The Stand. We have not had as much fun recording since our “Dune” episode, and we hope you enjoy it too.  As always, here are some links for further study.

Next show is in October which is Halloween time.  So, in honor of this ancient holiday we will be watching two movies: “The Exorcist” and “Constantine;” both are different takes on the Catholic-inspired horror genre and should make for some interesting comparison. See you all then!

Update: Since we recorded this episode, one of the stars of the 2001 “Planet of the Apes,” Micheal Clarke Duncan, has passed away at the age of 54 due to natural causes following a heart attack.  Our thoughts and prayers are for his family, friends, and fans.  All of us will miss him.
