There are several differences between the series and the original film. Other than the lack of life clocks on the City-dwellers' palms, Francis has companions who seek Logan outside, the Sandman weapons are adjustable with a stun setting, the city is run not by a computer but a council of elders, they refer to the city as the "City of Domes," and there are many more people outside for Logan and Jessica to interact with. The City-dwellers also seem far more worldly and able to adapt to being outside than their cinematic counterparts. See more »
This could have been one of the finest science fiction show's of the seventies if it had been allowed to stay on longer and allowed the characters to develop. Gregory Harrison was perfect as Logan and Heather Menzies was great as Jessica. Also, Donald Moffat was great as the android Rem. Too bad this show was bounced around all over the schedule. I would have loved to have seen them encounter all sorts of societies in the post-apocalyptic world of this show.
