Conflict in Zidor
26 October 2013 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Written by Michael Michaellan and Al Hayes and directed by Al Hayes, 'Turnabout' is the penultimate 'Logan's Run' episode and the last to feature Randy Powell as 'Francis'. After helping a young woman named 'Mia' ( Victoria Racimo ) in the desert, Logan and co. encounter a group of horse-riders from the nearby city of Zidor, which is under the command of the ruthless 'Asa' ( Nehemiah Persoff ). Identified as runners, Logan and his friends are sentenced to be executed. But then Francis arrives and insists they be turned over to him to be taken back to the City of Domes to be killed ( in fact, he intends to have them reprogrammed ). While Asa deliberates on this new development, Mia helps Logan and Jessica escape. Rather than let Francis remain a prisoner, Logan opts to go back and rescue his former friend...

A good episode. Zidor is like one of those Middle Eastern countries were women are not allowed a voice in society and have to wear masks at all times. Powell is on good form here, particularly in his scenes with Persoff, and getting to fight one of Asa's men with a stick that emits a laser beam. It is indeed a shame this was his final episode. Logan's concern for Francis' welfare is touching and reminds us that they had once been close friends. As ever, Heather Menzies is beautiful, even when dying of thirst. A strong black character - 'Samuel' ( Hari Rhodes ) - is the story's pivot. I like the ending - instead of killing Asa, he gets a more just punishment - he is voted out of office!
