Solid stories, great acting Gregory Harrison
11 August 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Logan's Run is one of my favorite shows from the mid 70's. If I recall,it competed with Buck Rogers, The Hulk & Battlestar Galactica in the great 70's era of Charlies Angels, CHiPS, MASH, Happy Days, Dallas etc. Obviously Universal won out over MGM TV with their series tho I always thought the MGM science fiction from the 50's - 60 - 70's was different, ideological & more enjoyable than the more mainstream format of other scifi TV series of this era, tho obviously MGM, in decline at this time, didn't have the same budgets to work with as Universal, Fox or Paramount. This series was great, starring Gregory Harrison & the concepts original & engaging, even now for me. The sets, costumes (other than the Sandmen's kit) & sfx are hammy, even camp, when it comes to the female kit & protagonists Logan & Jessica encounter, with glitter fabrics right out of a gay mardigras; probably from bolts of material left in the store house from the old MGM musicals era.The decaying MGM backlot is used to excellent effect in Logan's Run. There's something about TV series from the 60's 70's that apart from the nostalgia element has a aura all its own; is a similar feel with 'The Invaders from the mid 60's, another show I love. Also, I recon Data from ST ripped off Rem
