Storyline

Taken from the film, Highlander, Duncan MacLeod, clansman of Connor in the film also finds he is being stalked by not only other immortals trying to kill him before the time of the gathering, but also a secret society of mortals who call themselves 'The Watchers' and also seem intent on killing him but "The Watchers" observe and record and never interfere. Duncan and the other immortals can only be killed by decapitation and often live for centuries. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

The season five finale, Highlander: Archangel (1997), was originally shot with a cliffhanger ending set 20 years in the future, when MacLeod is finally prepared to defeat Ahriman. The sixth season was planned to happen in the future, but was deemed too dark early on and was finally scrapped when the budget was sliced. 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

Duncan MacLeod: You really thought I'd lose?
Methos: Yeah. And you didn't?
Duncan MacLeod: It wasn't about that. You guys still don't get it, do you?
Methos: No.
Duncan MacLeod: I had to take responsibility for what I'd done. Nothing you two could do was ever going to solve it for me. I had to face him and fight the best fight of my life knowing he'd do the same. It's just the Fates that decide the winner.
Methos: Trial by combat. Whoever survives is proved right in the eyes of the law.
Duncan MacLeod: Bright boy.
Amanda: But what if he comes after you again?
Duncan MacLeod: He won't.
Amanda: How do you know ...

THE TIME OF THE "QUICKENING" IS HERE...........
30 June 1999 | by renfield54See all my reviews

This series is a seamless excerpt from the time line of the Highlander movies. A science fiction fantasy deluxe, the tale of Duncan McLeod, of the klan McLeod, becomes a realistic, believable, secret world hidden within our own. The only "real" sadness is Duncan's eternal loneliness due to the eventual deaths of all he allows near. Mortals are so fragile and, as for immortals, "There can be only one!"

Very easy to get caught up in, my children and I each carried katanas (plastic sword replicas) for many months during the original run of the series. Duplicating sword "riffs" and "taking" heads made for many hours of "immortal" fun.

Try to catch "HIGHLANDER" from the beginning episode and follow Duncan through the centuries of his life (in present day and flashback sequences). He adapts to all "times" and we get to learn perspective on present day and (supposedly) historical events immortals have influenced or shaped.

Too bad it's gone, but you can only save the world so many times before it gets old. There are re-runs though......
