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.

logans-run-annual-1978%00fc   I’ve probably written about this show before, but as I am a creature of habit you’ll see me repeat myself a lot. 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.

   Do you think Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull sucked? Then this may just change your mind like it did mine.

Starting the Year of Correctly

st-balanceofterror

   My first show of the year is a classic one. It’s Star Trek, Balance of Terror. The Enterprise battles a Romulan ship suspected of destroying outposts near the neutral zone. The featured guest star is the late Mark Lenard. This is an old favorite of mine, and I cannot think of a better way to kick off my 2017 in Sci-Fi style.

   What was your first show of the year?

Bad Robot Teases Tarkin

   The cool patch offer aside… the fact that they have an incredible bust of Grand Moff Tarkin is a huge teaser! What can this mean for Rogue One or even Episode 8? Time will tell.

When You Wish Upon a Star-Lord… Who?

marvel-preview-04-01

Oh, come on, Man… Star-Lord. You know!

   Once upon a time, this was Star-Lord. In 1976, Star-Lord made his first appearance in the pages of Marvel-Preview Presents magazine. Different times, different kinds of heroes, same characters. While the designs have evolved since these days, the stories, well… have pretty much been told over and over. I dig the technique on the background of this classic cover.

Star Wars Rebels: May the Fourth (Doctor) Be With You…

   Kanan discovers that things are not always black and white. It’s time to hear from the middle, the Grey. This excites me for more than we will be delving into the philosophy of the many facets of the Force, we will also get to hear from the fourth Doctor… MY Doctor. Tom Baker crosses the genre streams and becomes, what could possibly be, an integral part of Luke Skywalker’s inevitable journey.

   May the Fourth be with us all.
