Although the series was cancelled after 15 weeks because of low ratings and was considered a bomb in the US, it was a huge success in the UK. See more »
In the pilot episode (after the astronauts have been captured by Urko), Alan abrades the ropes binding his wrists against a rock. Yet in the close-up of his wrists, the ropes are not frayed where he had been rubbing them and they don't break. They just fall off his arms. See more »

I have just finished watching the Planet of the Apes Tv series, which I decided to do since I happen to be a great fun of the original movie.
Watching it definetly did not let me down, as I was always interested to follow the adventurers in the endless trouble they got into all the time and good job was made to make sure viewers would be interested throughout.
The only downfall was that the original idea of the astronauts to escape and find some computer from the old days an establish what really happened was abandoned, therefore downgrading the plot.
