Time Has Not Been Good To This "Manhunt" Sci-Fic Series
19 April 2010 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Good Lord! Another poster had a go at this series and he was bombarded with nine "not useful" votes. Should I be careful what I say here? When this series appeared it was gold. Every cast member, every costume, every turn in the story was gold. Logan's Run was hot stuff to my 12 year old eyes...even on my black and white television set!

Then, in Australia at least, the series vanished from the face of the earth for decades.

Last year, I finally found it again on YouTube and discovered that time has not been good to Logan's Run. It looks too low budget and, since 1977 or 1978, I have seen a few "manhunt" television shows/movies and Logan's Run does not measure up to the others. If you enjoyed this series in 1977, just keep the memories, don't track down the series in this century...you might not like what you get!
