Good show, too short
30 June 2004 | by (Saco, Maine) – See all my reviews

Logan's Run, based on the 1976 movie of the same name, was a good show. Gregory Harrison was Logan, a Sandman, Heather Menzies was Jessica. A Runner. Runners are people who want to live beyond the age of 30. In the futuristic society that Logan and Jessica live, it's against the law. When you reach your 30th

birthday, you're a dead man, or woman. Donald Moffat played the android Rem. Logan's Run originally aired on Friday nights at 9:00 pm, but was bounced around the time slots so much by CBS that when it finally ended in 1978, CBS didn't care whether it survived or not. It was never on the Sci-Fi Channel. It would also make a good DVD presentation.
