Interesting episode

Burke (solid James Naughton) and Virdon (the equally sturdy Ron Harper) are captured by a human tribe who turn over their human prisoners to the apes to be used as slaves. Their sole chance for freedom is to convince their captors to rebel against the apes. Director Arnold Laven relates the gripping story at a brisk pace and maintains a serious tone throughout. Howard Dimsdale's compelling script offers a few nice touches of humor while addressing the weighty themes of blind unthinking subservience and the evils of slavery in a head-on provocative manner. Galen (Roddy McDowall in fine form) has several strong scenes in which he butts heads with fearsome and ruthless human tribe leader Brun (an impressively steely portrayal by John Ireland). Moreover, there are sound supporting performances by Ben Andrews as Brun's angry son Miro, Jennifer Ashley as sweet innocent Talia, and Peter G. Skinner as the recalcitrant Clim. A neat show.
