Rising up, I used to be an enormous fan of the film Highlander. One thing in regards to the combination of swordfights, historical past and the soundtrack by Queen actually spoke to me, and it was a favorite I returned to over and over. Heck, I even sort of appreciated the horrible sequel, Highlander 2: The Quickening, however I draw the line at Highlander: The Ultimate Dimension, which nonetheless could also be one of many worst motion pictures I ever noticed in theatres as a child. Highlander The Sequence although, that was actually good!
Regardless of flopping theatrically in 1986, Highlander, starring Christopher Lambert as an immortal warrior named Connor MacLeod, was a world hit on the field workplace and cleaned up on residence video. After a disappointing sequel (Highlander 2: The Quickening), the choice was made to spin the franchise off right into a TV present. The present, which starred Adrian Paul as Duncan MacLeod, ran for six seasons, spawning a spin-off (Highlander: The Raven) and two movies (Highlander: Endgame, Highlander: The Supply).
As a Highlander fan, I’d wager that the present was the very best iteration of the franchise, exterior of the unique movie that we’ve ever gotten. Ignoring all of the sequels, this one assumes Connor didn’t truly win “The Prize” within the unique film, as there are nonetheless a great deal of Immortals on the market. Nevertheless, we get much more data and their world, together with the group (The Watchers) that observe them. Adrian Paul, who turned a world heartthrob, made for a superb immortal. The present had a very fashionable run, even when the films that adopted it have been each abysmal, as was the spin-off sequence.
On this episode of Gone However Not Forgotten, we have a look into the present’s origins, together with the pilot, which featured Christopher Lambert as Connor, the spin-offs, function movies and the present’s enduring legacy.
