PEW PEW PEW! Time for a moral dilemma for our runners and another episode without Francis! Where IS he? Let’s search for him in this week’s episode of Logan’s Run! Another day, another abandoned lab. We open on a night scene and the air car rumbles through an abandoned Hollywood backlot pretending to be a city hit by a nuclear bomb.
