Critic Reviews for Planet of the Apes Season 1

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

The series questioned our treatment of our nearest animal relatives and, by extension, racism, and had some fun with reverse stereotypes.

May 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Only Mark Lenard as Urko the gorilla and McDowall as Galen make it even partially worth bothering with.
