Though uncredited, Rod Serling wrote the original treatment and two proposed scripts for this series, essentially creating the basic format followed by the program, two astronauts and one chimpanzee pursued by the Apes civilization. See more »

This television series following on from the classic Apes films, is just about perfect. I'll admit that when i first started to watch it i thought it would be just a cheesy rip off to cash in on the popularity of the films but I was dead wrong. The cast is perfect with Apes veteran Roddy Mcdowall back as sympathetic intellectual "Galen." The storylines are good also as is the makeup, once again this is great!
