Nifty episode
4 September 2013 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Virdon (solid Ron Harper) and Burke (the equally sturdy James Naughton) explore a ruined city and discover a filmed message from scientists of their time that might help them figure out what happened to their civilization. However, Virdon winds up getting separated from Burke and Galen (the always on the money Roddy McDowall). Director Bernard McEveety relates the engrossing story at a steady pace and builds a reasonable amount of tension. Robert Hamner's script nicely explores the theme of trust and offers some interesting insights into the ape-ruled world (for example, the simians use food as a bartering tool to control and manipulate starving humans). The sound acting from the capable cast helps a whole lot: Jackie Earle Haley makes the most out of his meaty part as scrappy waif Kraik, the lovely Zina Bethune brings a disarmingly fragile charm to her role as the frightened Arn, Mark Lenard contributes a typically fine turn as the brutish and short-tempered Urko, and Booth Colman does well as the shrewd and sensible Zaius. A few warm and pleasant moments between Kraik, Arn, and Virdon give this show some extra touching substance. Earle Hagen's rousing score hits the stirring spot. Gerald Perry Finnerman's cinematography delivers lots of cool shots of the rubble-strewn desolate city. A worthy show.
