Wannabe tyrants are big these days, so what better time than now for the ApeCast to take a look at Planet of the Apes TV episode “The Tyrant”? Jack and Geoff take a look at what makes this episode a bit of a mess, despite a truly compelling villainous turn by self-styled Lord of the Apes Aboro, Galen’s best Ape impersonation yet, more sweet Pete and Alan fight moves, and Urko’s further descent into cartoonishness. They’ll also delve into such mesmerizing topics as the Winter Soldier (kind of), the role of chickens on the Planet of the Apes, how the show has changed since the early episodes and the many surprising differences between the episode and its novelization. This is one podcast you won’t mind having tyrannize your day!
