Logans Run.....off forever into the archives.
15 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I did manage to get a rather poor quality video to DVD copy of all the episodes of this series. I too was nostalgic about the series. I used to watch this on a Saturday morning. I still has a good feel to it. The stories do now seem weak and the world does seem to be full of people wanting to control it. This does not distract the viewer from enjoying the dated costumes and at times rather weak extras. I forgot how many times REM says - "My dear Jessica". STill a classic. Don't think they will release this on DVD. Seems the market couldn't afford it. One last comment I thought the wheels on the solar car were very well hidden, but the fact they had to slide the wooden doors open like a bread bin...makes me laugh still.
