Description

Gregory Harrison (Trapper John, M.D., Falcon Crest) stars as a former policeman fleeing across a post-apocalyptic landscape to find a fabled utopia in Logan's Run: The Series, a science-fiction adventure based upon the feature film and novel of the same name by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. In 2319, Earth has been devastated by nuclear holocaust, with survivors clustered in isolated communities, unaware of the existence of others after all forms of global communication have been extinguished. Logan and Jessica (a member of the underground resistance movement) escape from the programmed world of the Domed City, where residents face death at age 30, and are determined to find Sanctuary, a mythical paradise in the outside world.

Customer Reviews

Worthwhile piece of 1978 pop culture.

Liberties are taken with the source material, and it's not a true sequel of either the original 1976 film or 1967 novel, but Logan's Run is a diverting piece of 1970's culture. Elements of both the film and novel are combined to create an entirely new entity, and 1/2 of the first episode effectively starts the story again. Due to cost considerations, the costumes and some effects from the film are re-used, which is why many mistakenly consider it to be a continuation of that film's storyline. This series has frequently been mentioned as a candidate for DVD release, but the source material is in rough shape. The colours are sometimes faded and the film is filled with scratches and blemishes. The price point it a little high, but if enough people purchase this we might see more obscure series on iTunes and it might prompt someone to do a restoration and eventual special-edition DVD release of the series along with the film.

Logan's short run held promise

I have a hard time going so far as to say this series is "good." But it is perhaps the most worthy attempt from the 1970's to recapture the lighting in a bottle that was the original "Star Trek." Writers with Sci-Fi creds (Harlan Ellison, David Gerrold, "Logan's Run" co-author William F. Nolan) contribute, but their efforts don't seem to pan out the gold one might expect. I was impressed with the subtle shades of the character of Francis. Had this show run longer than 14 episodes, it would have been interesting to see how Francis developed. He was the antagonist without being a smirking, closed-minded, cardboard villain. Francis has found out renewal is a lie, which should give him empathy for Logan, whether he can show it openly or not. I suspect he would not have remained a puppet of the council of elders forever. It seems possible this Francis might have moved closer to the true nature of Francis from the novel (which I won't spoil for those who have not read it), than did the Francis portrayed in the movie. I haven't seen this show since its first run when I was about 12 years old. I liked the show then, but expected to find it disappointing and cringe-worthy as an adult. But "Logan's Run" holds up pretty well, all things considered. Well, all except for the annoying "squeaky toy" sound in the opening theme. This is exactly the kind of show I'd like to see more of on iTunes. I have nostalgia for this series, but would probably never invest the bucks in a DVD set and would prefer to download a selection of episodes. Another show I would like to see is "The Man From Atlantis," which starred Patrick Duffy before he gained fame as the occasionally dead brother of J.R. Ewing on "Dallas."

great classic tv show

If you have seen the movie, you will like the series. It is campy, but takes off where the movie leaves off. I remember having a major crush on Gregory Harrison.
