REM: In the 1977 TV show Logan's Run, REM is Mountain City's advanced android repairman. Logan is a "sandman" who kills people on their 30th birthday. He realizes that "Hey! I'll turn 30 someday." Thus, with the help of Jessica, he leaves Domed City. However, there is a sandman on his tail. Logan and Jessica end up at Mountain City which is a city that serves humans. Not like that! They wish to make life as comfortable as possible for their human masters. They love humans so much that they do not want to let them go. So, Logan and Jessica need REM's help to escape Draco and Siri. Siri? Where have I heard that name before? Anyway, REM joins Logan and Jessica on their run from the law, and their many adventures. I am surprised they did not end up with dozen's of people on the run with them since they regularly gathered another person upon escaping a city.
