Hey all! Posting this here, even though this forum seems 95% devoted to superhero discussions...wasn't sure where else it would fit. Has anyone seen the old Logan's Run TV series from 1977? I've always been a fan of the film, so I grabbed the 3-disk set off eBay for a good deal. I'm about half way through, and it's a pretty mixed bag thus far. Some of the episodes have been very good, and a couple have been very weak. The acting is not horrible, but Logan and Jessica play it with an innocence that sort of translates very weakly in an action/adventure show. The Francis-7 plotline reminds me of the guy who chased the A-Team around and just sort of showed up every other episode. The visual effects are embarrassing which is unfortunate. One of the things of great interest is that it barely hides the fact that it aspires to be Star Trek. The trio of Logan/Rem/Jessica is almost directly lifted from Kirk/Spock/Bones. The "run" is really nothing more than an excuse to have "post-apocalyptic civilization of the week" adventures that are nearly identical to a "planet of the week" format. The thread of the character's histories from The City of Domes and the search for Sanctuary are spoken of in nearly every episode....but it's just background to the Trek-like formula. I know several notable Trek alum wrote for the series (David Gerrold, Harlan Ellison, DC Fontana, and John Meredith Lucas) so this comes as no surprise I suppose. Overall, it's actually a FASCINATING experience to watch this as a big fan of both Logan's Run and Star Trek. Other Observations: There are a bucketload of Trek related guest stars. Leslie Parrish, Kim Catrall and Morgan Woodward have all made appearances thus far. I also saw Jared Martin (Harrison Blackwood from War of the Worlds) in an episode. The costume design follows the outrageously 70's approach of the film. The outfits they put on the female characters would make William Ware Theiss proud. Lordy. Heather Menzies skirt is shorter than the Ilia Probe robe from TMP The theme song is a bit of a rip-off of the TOS theme, except infinitely worse and highlighted by a repeating "Pew! Pew! Pew!" sound. Unbelievable that someone thought this was a good idea. The pilot episode basically takes the first hour or so of the feature film and condenses that into a 15-minute simplified retelling before moving out of the city and off to random adventures. That wasn't a good choice, in my opinion. The life clocks, which were such an important part of the lore of both the film and the books is completely absent from the TV series. Any other thoughts or experiences regarding this series from anyone?
