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

Product Description

It's 2314 and no one is allowed to live past age of 30, but a few have escaped the new world order to try to reach Sanctuary where they can live peacefully to old age. Gregory Harrison stars as Logan, a Sandman who rebels and joins other Runners as they try to avoid being captured and deal with an unknown world outside the City of Domes.

It's been a long wait--35 years(!!!) but at long last LOGAN'S RUN: The TV Series (1977-78) is finally available on DVD! Starring Gregory Harrison ("Trapper John, M.D.") as Logan, Heather Menzies ("SSSSSSS") as Jessica, Donald Moffat (John Carpenter's "The Thing") as the android Rem and Randy Powell as Francis. The series was produced by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts (creators of both "Charlie's Angels" and the short-lived "Time Express") and featured scripts by William F. Nolan, Saul David, Leonard Katzman, D.C. Fontana, David Gerrold (Noah Ward), Shimon Wincelberg, Michael Michaelian & Kathryn Michaelian Powers, John Meredith Lucas, Dennis O'Neil and Harlan Ellison.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly well-written April 15, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We children of the 70's have it rough when it comes to our favorite shows. The fact is, much of what we grew up watching and loving has not aged well. I literally had not seen an episode of Logan's Run since the show ended in 1978, and was highly skeptical that it would hold up. But I'm surprised and delighted to report that the show hasn't aged poorly at all.

[Minor Spoilers Ahead]

For those who only know the 1976 movie of the same name, you should know that the show DOES change a few things. The pilot, rather than continuing the events of the film, re-imagines them. While I enjoy the pilot, I do feel it rushes things a bit. Logan's decision to rebel, for example, happens about six minutes into the episode. Likewise, the android Rem's decision to join Logan and Jessica feels a bit hurried. Naturally, the restrictions of 1978 television mean the film's more adult themes have been toned down.

The series also benefits from the contributions of veteran science fiction writers and directors, such as D.C. Fontana, Harlan Ellison, and Alexander Singer. Even when the acting isn't always stellar, the scripts are usually well thought-out and original. The special effects and sets (largely matte paintings, but very good ones) are on-par with anything else from the era. The budget was no doubt helped tremendously by re-using costumes and props (as well as a fair amount of effects shots, especially in the pilot) from the film.

As for the DVD set itself, it's the definition of a "bare bones" release. All you get is the episodes, although it does include 3 episodes that were not part of the series' original run. There are English & French subtitles. The picture quality is good for its age, although there does not appear to have been extensive remastering.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy and light, but worth it for true fans of the movie. September 20, 2012
Format:DVD
Received new as gift.

Picture quality: average, with artifacts that are not intrusive
Sound quality: nothing spectacular, but not bad
DVD quality: 2 or 3 skips/blackouts, easily fixed by "rewinding" a few seconds.
Extras: non-existent. nada. zilch.

You get 13 episodes (2 of which supposedly didn't air in prime-time). I'm a big fan of 70s/80s sci-fi, and I enjoyed about 1/4 of these episodes.
3 were pretty darn good (#4, #5, and #12), 3 were sort of memorable, and the rest... eh.

The TV series is definitely lighter fare than the movie. No nudity, and other than some mild violence, safe enough for most any age to watch. Not a whole lot of sci-fi, but a lot of wandering around outside (desert, forest, strange places where the interiors all have the same halls, painted and dressed up differently).

Sets and props are cheesy and often recycled, but I did enjoy some of the 70s mod-pod decor. Apparently every computer in the future takes up half a room, and requires a minute-long sequence of random button presses and dial turns to get anything done. Special effects are mostly simple light video effects added on top of the film, and are nothing to write home about. Star Trek TOS did it better, but for the 70s the effects were ok.

The solarcraft is supposedly a hovercraft, but we see its wheels on several occasions. The outfits and accessories are often funny. The weapon-thingie in 1 episode may appear as an alien do-hickey in the very next episode.

There are basically only 3 kinds of stories here. And every episode (except the first one) starts and ends with a shot of the solarcraft that Logan and Jessica ride in. I kept hoping for more originality, but...nope.
