Bad Ape makeup...
I have just started watching the series (three episodes thus far), and the ape makeup is really bugging me. I understand that this is TV as opposed to theatrical movies, but it seems that the makeup could have been done a bit better. I am willing to overlook the fact that the apes look more like they are wearing masks that I would like, but the thing that really bothers me is the coloring of the faces. It is so dark and one tones. General Urko looks way too brown with no texture or anything...it makes it look plastic. Galen's face even looks too dark and flat colored for it's own good. The older movies did not have this problem, applying a bit lighter and more naturalistic colors to the faces to make them look more live real flash. Here, though, the flat applications look awful and actually draw attention the the mask effect. Would simple better makeup to the faces have really been so out of reach for a TV show?

Whose idea was it for the word "Lisp" to have an "S" in it?
