To the Deeper Thoughts!
I really liked this.  To be honest, I liked it a heck of a lot more than I expected.  I think this is in part that I read the book first.  There were certain sections that would not have made as much sense had I not read the book.  Especially the opening chapter with the obelisk and the apes.

A fine Sci-Fi classic that I am glad to say I have finally read and watched.
