Product Description

It didn't take long for the 1976 film Logan's Run to be adapted for a TV series: the show ran in the 1977-78 season, without making the impact the movie did. The first episode begins in the City of Domes, the postapocalyptic bubble where no one is allowed to live past the age of 30 (some of the special effects and miniature sets from the feature film are used here). Logan (Gregory Harrison) and Jessica (Heather Menzies) escape to the outside world, chased by a Runner (Randy Powell), and the format of the show takes the characters from place to place in search of Sanctuary, that fabled zone of refuge. Added to the mix is an android (he's touchy about the word robot) named REM, played by Donald Moffat in a blatant imitation of Mr. Spock and C-3PO. The show lasted 14 episodes before getting the ax, and it's not difficult to see why it failed to catch on: flat writing and wooden acting nearly stop the first few episodes dead in their tracks, although a few intriguing sci-fi concepts creep in as the series goes on. Harlan Ellison provided the story idea for episode seven, "The Crypt," and David Gerrold scripted episode five, "Man Out of Time," which actually builds to a fine series of time-travel paradoxes (Gerrold took his name off the credits when the episode was rewritten). Various actors knock around in guest parts, including Kim Cattrall, Mel Ferrer, Horst Buchholz, and George Maharis. Aside from that, the main appeal is camp: the goofy laser-beam-shootin' theme music, the fact that Heather Menzies's hair never varies its gloriously Fawcett-esque layers, the groan-worthy stabs at comic relief. It would be nice to say this series was an unappreciated classic, but aside from the wacky nostalgia, Logan's Run is pretty lame. --Robert Horton

5.0 out of 5 stars Your Time Is Up - Runner! April 13 2013
Format:DVD
When it comes to 1970’s Sci-Fi on television, you can’t go past Logan’s Run. The 70’s on TV when it comes to science fiction was to some degree the golden age-but a golden age of experimentation as the networks/studios were trying hard to put something different on the tube to peak the audience interest. And so we had a variety of shows that were excellent in there conception and imagination; Planet of the Apes comes to mind as being probably the best show of the era, (being a POTA fan, I’m bias) but there are other shows with just as equal input, and one of them was Logan’s Run.

The series stars, Gregory Harrison as Logan 5, Heather Menzies as Jessica 6, (initially Michael York and Jenny Agutter were approached to reprise their character roles for the series, but they declined), Donald Moffat as Rem, and Randy Powell as Francis 7. The original run of Logan’s Run went from 16th of September 1977 to the 6th of February 1978, and only went for 14 episodes.

But sadly as with other great sci-fi shows, it didn’t last long, it had great scripts-story lines, imagination, ideas about our future, it had all the trappings to go the distance for perhaps a three year run. But it didn’t happen-why? Despite early strong ratings, it seems CBS constantly forestalled Logan’s Run, thus causing the series to lose much of its viewing audience-it was a disaster waiting to happen, with no stable time-slot to keep the ratings high the series went down hill, (thanks CBS for your stupidity).

All-in-all, I remember Logan’s Run with fondness, as I watched every episode on TV back in the 70’s, it was a great show, I liked the characters and the actors who portrayed them, (they certainly don’t make shows like they use to anymore).
