I’m old enough to have fond memories of the 1987 series with
Sarah Conner Linda Hamilton and the ever-reliable Ron Perlman looking longingly at each other every damned ep or two. So when I sat down to watch the 2012 version, it was partly curiousity but mostly because it has Go Girls‘ Jay Ryan in one of the lead roles – hey it’s the same reason I’m looking forward to trying similarly Kiwi-led shows Banshee and Falcón.
So I’m past the teaser, maybe ten minutes into the show, when the thought occurs to me: This must be what shows look like in the world of Logan’s Run.
Or maybe I’m just feeling my age.
