|Well, it must be "prime the pump" day (see Matrix
Revisited below.) Fox obviously has Apes fever, and have just
announced a 11/20 street date for Planet Of The Apes: The Complete TV
Series. This four-disc box set is presented in 4:3 full frame and
English mono, and includes all 14 episodes of the acclaimed series. Disc
one features "Escape from Tomorrow," "The Gladiators,"
"The Trap" and "The Good Seeds"; disc two "The
Legacy," "Tomorrow's Tide," "The Surgeon" and
"The Dragoons"' disc three includes "The Horse Ride,"
"The Interrogation," "The Tyrant" and "The
Cure"' and finally disc four contains "The Liberator" and
"Up Above the World So High." Extras include a still gallery and
TV Spots. Retail is $49.95 for the set, and click on the box art image for
a blow up.
Webmaster Note: Amazing, you make a hit movie and a studio suddenly
realizes how valuable one of their properties is. When we talked to the folks at
Fox Home Video a few years ago, they said they didn't think releasing the TV
series on video would be worth the expense. Now that the "remake" has
done so well (not to mention other TV series like Buffy, X-Files, and Sopranos,
selling well on DVD, we got something even better than a video release!
Definitely worth the wait.
