Apes rule!
3 February 2000 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

Wow, canceling this show after 13 episodes was a tragedy. William Smith was awesome in this show. One of the most unheralded actors in the business. For Roddy Mcdowell to stay on with Heston and the other stars gone was truly commendable.
