Logan’s Run – Season 1, Episode 14: “Turnabout”

Oh, what a long and non-shirtless trip it’s been! I’ve so enjoyed plunging into the chiffon-filled world of the future. It’s fascinating to revisit these things with grown-up eyes and a much-different worldview. What have we learned in 13 episodes? That Logan couldn’t keep hold of his gun if it was glued to him. That he and Jessica apparently never boned. That Francis longed pensively for the bromance he and Logan shared in the City of Domes. And most of all, the future has force…

DALLAS – Season 2, Episode 7: “Runaway”

Can you even play, Lucy? Wow. What a week. With the global news and the COVID outbreak so dire, I have one bright spot –  this week’s Dallas recap. And it may be the second or third best episode ever! Better than “Who Shot J.R.?” you ask? Did that episode have a van with a total shag carpet interior? Nope. Did it have Lucy wanting a band called the Coffins playing at her birthday party? No, it did not. Did it have Greg Evigan as…
