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 »
Although I was only 9 or 10 when it was first aired in my country (dominican republic), I was very impressed with the storytelling and I thought that the actors were pretty cool!! Specially REM. All of my friends and I thought that Heather Menzies was a goddess!!
The fact that it ran for only 14 episodes makes the prospects of ever watching reruns (specially here in my country) so much harder!! Too bad, such a great series...
