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 »
I saw "Logan's run" (the movie) yesterday and it reminds me of this TV series I used to watch a long time ago.The movie which I saw in a movie theater drastically wandered from the novel:for instance the part of sandman Francis would amaze people who only know the movies and the TV series.
The TV episodes kept only Jessica,Logan and Francis and added REM ,a robot (but a human one ,not the nasty robot who freezes the fugitives).It roughly followed the pattern of "the fugitive" of the sixties ,although Francis did not appear in all the episodes.My favorite one was based on "the most dangerous game" and featured German actor Horst Buchholz as the hunter,Jessica and Logan being the preys.Unlike the movie,neither Jessica nor Logan showed love feelings and when REM hinted at it ,the heroine simply answered: "He's only a friend" .
Correct me if I'm wrong ,but the last episode was not really an "end " :they probably intended to make more episodes.They did not,and it was too bad.
