Wild-Rogue-Rose’s review of Highlander: The Element of Fire
Highlander The Series - All Opening Credits
If another immortal kills them, the killer absorbs their strength in a process called The Quickening. Over the centuries, immortals have been killing one another in the hopes of a mythic Prize; the last immortal standing will, essentially, be granted one wish. A remake has been trying to get off the ground for almost a decade. Highlander also featured one of the best soundtracks of any s film. Queen, one of the best rock bands of all time, contributed nine of their songs to the movie, giving the film a hefty, melodramatic bombast that no other band could have provided.
Christopher Lambert reprised his role as Connor in the pilot episode, which introduced series protagonist Duncan MacLeod, an Immortal who was taken in by the same clan of Scottish Highlanders who had found and raised Connor generations before. Richie Ryan Stan Kirsch was introduced as a thief breaking into their shop and witnessing the confrontation between Duncan, the evil Immortal Slan Quince Richard Moll and Duncan's fellow clansman Connor MacLeod, the hero from the movies.

Even if you spent the bulk of the s watching first-run episodes and repeats on cable, you should watch it again. You may also feel compelled to take up fencing. Highlander has the power to do that. The concept is the same. There are Immortals who battle each other. When one Immortal beheads another, a Quickening takes place. The show, though, exists in its own world.
Lots of things have turned 30 this year. Fine institutions, but did any of them spawn a mostly superior TV series in ? I think not. People still watch Buffy. There, I think that covers it. The film franchise is known for being an uneven product, where sense and meaning tend to get left at the door. Not so with the television series, thanks to a team of creatives who genuinely cared about what they were putting out.
