Another Look Back @ Logan’s Run on TV

   Logan leaves the City of Domes with Jessica and they are kidnapped by a pair of robots. An android named Rem rescues them and they flee with Francis in pursuit.

At times I love to revisit, rewatch shows and movies, replay old games, relisten to old albums,re-read old comics and books. From time to time I love to review these things. This is one of those things. It has that modern 70’s aesthetic that most Sci-Fi did back then that I totally dig.

   Having been a series, they could have fleshed out the story a bit more than the film did. That opportunity was squandered, obviously. After all, it was 70’s television, not known for its deep character/plot development.

   Is it visually stunning? Is it great writing? Is it a groundbreaking show? Nope, nope, and NOPE. What it does have is that feel of its time. That is pure gold to me. I was 7 when this show aired in 1977, but I never got to watch it. Heck, until it was reran on cable in the early 90’s, I had no idea that it even existed. It seemed like something I would have liked as a 7 year old. Even today, it has its charm, which is probably why I am writing about it.

   You can view it on YouTube right now, the first episode is a bargain at $1.99 (USD). Give it a shot, and tell me what you thought about it afterward.
