The producers should have asked some "Highlander" fans and would have known, this series is doomed from the beginning
15 February 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

"Highlander"-fans are a special breed of people: they worship the original 1986 movie and never get tired of telling people that "there should only have been one" and that everything that followed the original film – TV-series, kids shows, animes, even – were complete manure; then they'll go off to buy tickets for the sequel, muttering that this is likely to be the worst "Highlander" ever.

"The Raven" is one exception in this rule – a good percentage of "Highlander"-fans didn't even bother with this one. Not only was "The Raven" a stereotypical TV-show with a supernatural twist but the fans saw one major flaw: Elizabeth Gracen, alias Amanda Darieux alias The Raven.

That's not to say that Gracen is a bad actress, her skills being quiet adequate for TV; it had more to do with "Highlander"-canon. It had been an unwritten law, that they're only male immortals. This had less to do with chauvinism than the fact that the original "Highlander" was one of the purest 'boys-only' films there was, where any female actress was a damsel in distress, to be saved by the hero or raped by the villain.

Need I mention, that the episodes of "Highlander – The Series" starring Amanda Darieux were among the most unpopular episodes? They could have taken (almost) any other character – even the villainous ones – and made a series more interesting than "The Raven". Imagine if there would have been a "Star Trek" spin-off around the character of Wesley Crusher and you might get the idea.

Take it from a fan – I've got virtually everything "Highlander" standing in my movie collection. Even the malodorous "Highlander: The Source"; but it shames me not that "The Raven" isn't standing there.

3 points from 10 I'll give it – not exactly sure for what, though.
