This television series portrays a futuristic society where citizens are only allowed to live until age 30. Logan is a Sandman (police assassin) who is 26 years old; he decides to try to escape to freedom and a mythical place called 'Sanctuary.' He is pursued by his former friend, another Sandman, who attempts to terminate him. Written by

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 »
Does anyone else remember this series, which was something of a cult among my circle of teenage friends in London, England, in the late 70s? I can see from the IMDb entry that it only ran to 14 episodes, so I imagine the plug was pulled on it pretty quickly. (This often seems to be the case with shows that are too good.) I've no idea how it would hold up now, since it has never, to my knowledge, been repeated on British TV, but I have fond memories of this series. My friends and I thought that Heather Menzies was very pretty, but we were especially impressed by the android, Rem. If "Lost In Space" and "Land Of The Giants" were my preferred viewing in the late 60s, "Planet Of The Apes" and "Logan's Run" (in their TV-series manifestations) were my shows of choice in the late 70s.
