What were they thinking by doing a show about Amanda? I have nothing at all against Elizabeth Gracen, but Amanda was just absolutely not the right character to base a show on. I'm used to seeing a very strong and admirable main character in a Highlander story. Amanda was selfish, materialistic and also very weak. She had to go running to MacLeod every time she got into trouble. At least that's the way I saw her. But of course I guess that's mainly because the producers or writers or whoever didn't use the full potential of the character or the actress. It's like they just put Elizabeth Gracen into HL:TS for comic relief and sex appeal and didn't even consider the fact that she might actually have talent.
