Wonderful Planet of the Apes Knock-Off
30 December 2014 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Amazingly this Japanese series has yet to be released to the US in any home video format (except for its heavily butchered US version Time of the Apes, which was released on VHS in 1988). It's a wonderfully complex series which depicts the apes in a technologically advanced society as in Pierre Boulle's original Planet of the Apes novel, one year before the animated aeries Return to the Planet of the Apes did. I have the full TV series on DVD from Japan. Unfortunately the DVD box set doesn't contain any subtitles, but I'm able to follow along thanks to an episode guide I found online. So many subplots are eliminated from the justifiably berated Time of the Apes that most people are unaware of how good the series really is. Planet of the Apes (1974), Saru no Gundan/Army of the Apes (1974-1975), and Return to the Planet of the Apes (1975) are such different TV watching experiences that I find them all equally good. I hope one day it can be released in its entirety in the US.
