Trivia

Over 400 actors auditioned for the role of Duncan Macleod. Adrian Paul was the very first actor to audition for the role. Dutch actor Derek De Lint was eventually cast as the lead. But he dropped out of the series during pre production. See more »

Goofs

Episode 1.20, "Avenging Angel", features a swordfight between immortals that appears to be on holy ground; however the site is actually a museum displaying religious artifacts from the crusades. The confusion arises because footage from this fight is seen in the opening credits of later episodes as the narrator speaks of holy ground. See more »

Quotes

Amanda: You won't let me change, you know that? You really expect me to steal.
Duncan MacLeod: I expect sharks to bite too. Don't take it personally.

User Reviews

Excellent series!!
5 July 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the best Sci-Fi series out there. Adrian Paul is an excellent actor and fits the part perfect as Duncan. The first season was really over the top with Tessa. Duncan and Tessa made an excellent couple.

All in all, an excellent series. Only thing is, it should have went on for some more seasons, but running as many years as it did is indication enough to tell you it's a great series. Highlander fans will love it.

I always like how Duncan has the 'flashbacks' to previous 'lives'. Just adds to the character and shows what he had to do and go through throughout his immortal life.
