Highlander fans were confused and thought the animated series had problems with the continuity, especially about Quentin's teacher, Ramirez and had thought Quentin's Ramirez was Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez, mentor to Connor MacLeod, whom died in 1542, when he was killed by The Kurgan ("Highlander"). In the animated series, Quentin's Ramirez is Don Vincente Marino Ramirez, immortal and brother of Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos. Don Vincente Marino Ramirez is not Juan Sanchez Villas-Lobos Ramirez and Immortals cannot be brought back from the dead, once they are beheaded and their opponent undergoes The Quickening. But, in Highlander II: The Quickening (1991). Connor MacLeod, when undergoing The Quickening, calls Ramirez's name and the power of The Quickening brings Ramirez back, with his head intact.

theres a load of Highlander fans who see this series as a travesty but I found it kinda fun. In its own right it introduced the highlander mythos to an audience who might not know about the highlander movies. If you look at it as a seperate body its quite enjoyable and I was amused to see the main villain followed the formula of the main bad guy's name starting with K. All things being equal if yer a fan of the mythos then the series is at least worth a look tho HL purists my find it sort of lacking
