Since the series debuted in the fall of 1977, it is often assumed to have been inspired by the huge success of "Star Wars" and the popularity of science-fiction that followed. In truth, a series based on "Logan's Run" was already in development when "Star Wars" was released, although it did become one of the first S-F productions to appear in its wake. See more »
Does anyone else remember this series, which was something of a cult among my circle of teenage friends in London, England, in the late 70s? I can see from the IMDb entry that it only ran to 14 episodes, so I imagine the plug was pulled on it pretty quickly. (This often seems to be the case with shows that are too good.) I've no idea how it would hold up now, since it has never, to my knowledge, been repeated on British TV, but I have fond memories of this series. My friends and I thought that Heather Menzies was very pretty, but we were especially impressed by the android, Rem. If "Lost In Space" and "Land Of The Giants" were my preferred viewing in the late 60s, "Planet Of The Apes" and "Logan's Run" (in their TV-series manifestations) were my shows of choice in the late 70s.
