Simian Rise To Power: A History

Planet of the Apes is on the History Channel tonight. I am really losing respect for the History Channel. First it was alien autopsy shit. Then the UFOs. Then last week it's myth as history with two hours on Atlantis. Now, they're not even trying anymore. Now it's fictional future sci-fi. Now don't get me wrong. I liked the movie enough to have watched it like one and a half times ever. But, the premise even. Come on. The apes take over after nuclear fallout in the thinking of the origianl film. Mutually Assured Destruction isn't even possible anymore. This has been, I know, a sorry excuse for a post for a blog. But, I am just sick of seeing that rising phoenix picture every time I fire up Firefox. So, now it's apes.
