I don't think so, I think it fits very well in the sci-fi genre where the qualities you mentioned is common. But it's an interesting thought.

You know, McKay, you're a bigger fool than I thought you were. And to tell you the truth, that just didn't seem possible.

Hey how do you think Judah Ben-Hur and Moses would feel if they saw Taylor down on his knees before the downed Statue of Liberty?

:lol: Great question! I don't know about Judah, but I'm sure Moses would yell out:

"Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain!"

And then Moses would literally hit Taylor with the 10 Commandments.

Yes, I could see that happening. Would be interesting to see how Taylor would have responded :lol:

Somehow I see Taylor responding with a lot blasphemous profanity. And possibly a sucker punch if he could manage it.

No chance, sir. He can utter blasphemy as much as he likes, but what is a mere punch in front of those divine tablets, ha?

This is Judah's response:

[b]"Howling over a statue, man? I tell you the day all statues fall there will be a shout of freedom such as the world has never heard before!"[/b]


I know this Man!

Or Judah could just run Taylor over with his chariot. ;)

Jessie David Fox at Vulture wrote an oral history of The Simpsons' Planet of the Apes musical. It's interesting to read what the writers and producers on the show at the time thought of Planet of the Apes. Here are the most relevant excerpts:
Alf Clausen (composer for The Simpsons, 1990–present): I first came to L.A. in the late ’60s. I was looking for work as a composer and orchestrator, arranger, etc., and I ended up becoming a music copyist over at the Fox music department. Lo and behold, as I’m doing my copying job over there, they give me the Jerry Goldsmith score of Planet of the Apes. I was a music copyist on the original film of Planet of the Apes!

Bill Oakley (writer-producer for The Simpsons, 1992–1998; co-showrunner for seasons 7 and 8): When I was a tiny little kid, it was thrilling. There weren’t many sci-fi movies to begin with, and nerd culture didn’t exist. This was before Star Wars. When you were 6 or 7, this is what you liked before Star Wars, because it was the only thing like that. It was a cool franchise with astronauts and rockets and they went to different planets, and you could get the action figures. That kind of stuff didn’t have a lot of mainstream appeal back then.Also, almost every person in America has heard of Planet of the Apes and had an idea of what the ending was, or what the gist of it was, like Star Wars. And at that time, before the Tim Burton remake and the prequels, it had this camp-classic status. All the lines like, “Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!” occupied a rare place in pop culture.

David X. Cohen (writer-producer for The Simpsons, 1993–1999): I loved it, of course. Who doesn’t? I even read the book — well, the English version. [The movie was based on a French novel by Pierre Boulle.]

Josh Weinstein (writer/producer for The Simpsons, 1992–1998; co-showrunner for seasons 7 and 8): I’ll tell you something — I didn’t see Planet of the Apes until like five years ago. I knew I only knew the whole thing from the parody in Mad Magazine! But when we wrote it, I hadn’t seen it! I didn’t know it! I just knew the ending.

Oakley: The person running the room had never seen it, yet was able to concoct a beloved parody of it just through pop-culture osmosis.
