5.0 out of 5 stars Ark II - Log Entry: 2013 Feb. 18 2013
Ark II is a live-action science fiction series created by Filmation via CBS; it was produced in 1976 on location at Paramount Ranch near Malibu, California, for airing on Saturday mornings, thus aimed at children and teenagers. Only 15 episodes were ever made as the first season, but through re-runs over the years after production ceased it became a cult classic TV series.

- The Series -

Ark II had a racially mixed cast, starring Terry Lester as Captain Jonah (he also had the title of Commander in some episodes), Jean Marie Hon as Ruth, José Flores as Samuel, and a chimpanzee playing Adam. The show's premise was inspired by the story of Noah's Ark, and the characters were given names taken from the Bible.

The show's setting was in the post-apocalyptic 25th Century, after Earth's civilizations were decimated by the effects of waste, pollution, and warfare, falling back to a level comparable to the Dark Ages. Surviving scientists pooled their knowledge and resources, training three young people (and the chimp, who was capable of speech was voiced by Lou Scheimer) to search for remnants of humanity, reintroducing lost ideas as they travelled the barren landscape in the high-tech Ark II.

The series was unique in that it had a futuristic large white vehicle known as the `Ark II' (where the series got its name), which was a mobile laboratory for the crew to help explore the country, and for shorter journey's there was an all-terrain vehicle known as the Roamer, and Jonah had for his exploration a jetpack known as the `Jet Jumper'.

This was a great short-lived series, with only 15 episodes, I would have liked it to have gone for a second and third season, as there was enough imagination and scope for the series to develop.
