Podcasts Are Better With Arch Bacon
Slightly before my time, I only vaguely recall a few episodes of the tv series, but have now been able to rewatch the episodes and going through the podcast in conjunction with the show is a blast! The poddy is so much fun, a little bit like a scifi PTI (ESPN'S Pardon the Interruption) with Richard's and Mark's viewpoints, deep analysis and those shared moments where you find yourself agreeing: 'Yeah, I wondered about that too!' It's great, great fun, they clearly have affection for the show and actors and wheareas most poddy's can often feel too long, they tend to leave you wanting more. I only wish there had been more eps made not just for the series/story in general, but to have more Talking Apes to Urko & Chill with.. is that a thing?.. I'm trying to make that a thing! My Urko's hat is off to these awesome apes pirating the airwaves to bring us truth, justice and Darwinian diatribes against those filthy humans - everything is Urko-tastic!!
**Please give generously to the "Get-Pete-A-Backstory" Campaign.
GO APE 2018!
I’m catching up on this entertaining show. Years ago I followed 20th Century Fox’s direction to “Go Ape!” The hosts bring me back to my youth watching the show Friday nights with my Dad. Richard and Mark obviously love Apes and analyze the show in an entertaining fashion.
Beware the beast man!
Great for Apes fans. And a great look at an under-appreciated series.
