Trivia

Although the series ended in 1998, Adrian Paul would return as Duncan MacLeod for Highlander: Endgame (2000) with Christopher Lambert playing Connor MacLeod for the last time and connecting the TV series with the films and Highlander: The Source (2007) which is the final installment of the "Highlander" saga.

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

Methos: You think it takes courage to do what we do? Face another immortal with a sword knowing only one of you will live. You try being her. You try living one year knowing that your time is running out. That no matter how much you train, no matter how many tricks you have, you STILL lose. That's the way it is for them. So little time for them to SEE anything or DO anything.

Great Series
27 May 2003 | by cobra_011See all my reviews

I liked the movies. okay I loved the first movie and hated the second then kinda liked the third and I liked endgame. Two outta four ain't that bad. Anyway. I liked the movies BUT in the fighting choreography Christopher Lambert cannot match Adrian Paul. The sword fights in the series got better throug the season's. If your into martial arts (perferably with a sword kata's) like me you'll know what i'm talking about. It seems like Adrian KNEW at least a little something about sword fighting. Maybe i'm looking too deep anyway i give it a 9/10. And i want the DVD set
