Hail the bomb!  For the first time, two guest commentators join the podcast to talk about the strange, dark sequel to the original smash film, Beneath the Planet of the Apes, and also its enjoyably schlocky novelization.  We’ll be diving into the bizarre story of a film that splits the difference between being an inferior retread of the first film and a daring, audacious and nihilistic experiment that’s not quite like anything else.  There’s a lot to unpack here, from the subtly odd and dispiriting racial politics in the background, the reduced budget, the disturbing and dissonant soundtrack, the impossible task of star James Franciscus, the strutting magnificence of General Ursus, and too many more to mention!  Mutants!  Psychic Beeps!  Crucified Gorillas!  Natalie Trundy!  It’s all here!  This podcast is THE BOMB.
