Our fourth ill-advised movie franchise marathon. While perturbing our nervous systems in order to open our third eyes to the fully unveiled truth, we viewed all five of the original Planet of the Apes films, leaving behind commentary tracks for each of them* in our wake. Here we discuss the viewing experience and the franchise on the whole.
*Only four of the five commentaries survived due to an unfortunate SD card deletion of the commentary on the fourth film in the franchise, the pretty excellent prison-based Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.
Also, check out our newly updated YouTube channel for the hell of it.
