Anyone know this 70's sci-fi show ?

Postby john69 on Tue Apr 12, 2005 2:08 pm

I remember watching this show as a kid in the seventies and always thought it was called Logans run. When I checked it out on the internet I found its not what i remembered, and must of been something else.

It was about a kid on the run in this car, (which looked similar to the one in the"back to the future" movies), and he would encounter on his journeys various civilisations. I also think i remember that he was joined by Roddy McDowell at some point. (yet its not listed in McDowells filmography?) For the life of me I can't work out what this show was called and was wondering whether there's anyone out there who could help me out with this ?

Thanks.

Roddy McDowell as a regular? There's only one scifi show i can find in the 70s he was a regular in:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075503/
http://epguides.com/FantasticJourney/
http://www.tvtome.com/tvtome/servlet/Sh ... c_Journey/
http://www.geocities.com/TelevisionCity ... ourney.htm

Nothing about cars though and I haven't seen it. In fact Fantastic Journey sounds extremely similar to Sliders, I guess Sliders was a more popular remake.

Its most definitely not Logan's Run by the sounds of it, you not seen logan's run?

i'm releasing fantastic journey atm so check out the pilot episode in the sci-fi series thread :wink: but as spud said it doesn't have a car in it (that i can remember) :wacky:

[edit]

thinking about it Logan's Run tv show did have some funky ass sandman cars so maybe it was that?

THAT'S IT ! It's the fantastic journey, I straight away remembered it when I saw the picture of the cast. Yeah i actually do remember a big silver what i thought was a car in the film, i guess it must of been a time portal instead. (it sure looked like a car, it had wheels, doors and all !)

It seems the Roddy McDowell thing clinched it :) i don't know why i remembered him, but he did leave an impression.....i guess he did his job well !

No I don't remember watching Logans run, although I do remember the title for some reason.

Thanks guys for your help, this thing has been niggling away at me on and off for a few years, I've just never got around to chasing it up.
