LOGAN'S RUN (1977) Opening Titles

I've decided, for the time being, not to do my previously announced episode-by-episode review of the Logan's Run television series. When I came up with that idea, I wasn't aware that the series was readily available on iTunes. I may still write about one or two of them in my forthcoming Favorite Episodes feature, though.

For now, though, here's the opening titles. Someone posted in the comments a while back that they thought it had the worst theme music of any genre show - I disagree. I actually rather like it, even if the melody, for some reason, reminds me of John Williams' "Leia's Theme" from Star Wars....


  1. The 'Logan' T.V. theme is fine. Its that wailing car alarm that spoils it.

  2. "reminds me of John Williams' "Leia's Theme" from Star Wars...."

    Mixed with a heapin' helpin' of "Love Boat" ;)

  3. It definitely is similar to lei's Theme. Who wrote it?

    I think the problem with it is not that it's so bad, but that it just doesn't really evoke anything particular to Logan's Run.

  4. Oh, I watched this, all right. Wasn't even in the same class as the movie (for which I had a full-size theater poster). And the theme isn't suited to a life-or-death adventure, although it does drip 70's.
