I liked it and the story line is still in use
16 February 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I have clear memories of watching this series and have never forgotten it. It does run along the same lines as the Fugitive, although the lead character is being chased by those outside the law.

Every time I watch the current series "The Pretender" I see the same story line as "The Immortal". The hero being chased by a corporate entity because of a special gift that he has (special blood in this case) and sorting out people's problems along the line.

I'd like to see the Immortal once again.
