Highlander marathon on Sci-Fi...neato!

FK--vamp trio, historical

I spent the day with the TV set to the Highlander: The Series marathon. Early season 1 episodes it seemed. The reporter girl was still a sorta regular. Wow! I hadn't seen that show since the final episode aired way back yonder. It was a nice step down memory lane but boy those fashions. Ritchie's jacket had long, suede fringe for goodness sakes. Ah good times.

Highlander: The Source is still airing but I switched it off. I'm recording the rest of it for when I'm bored. I don't know how the Highlander fandom received that movie but from what I did see it can't be good. The characters looked familiar (the actors themselves are still believable as immortals) but I didn't recognize the world they were living in. And sure the movie looked stylish but it didn't strike me as looking very Highlanderish, whatever that means.

>"Over at the Television Without Pity forums posters were in complete denial."

For years, it's been a commonplace that each of the movies happens in its own independent alternate universe.

>"LOL, Randi was even in the opening credits wasn't she."

Yep.

>"but I think having the threat of discovery loom over them would have been an interesting theme."

They did revisit that theme in the Kalas arc in third season -- that's the one where exposure is threatened, and culminates in a duel atop the Eiffel Tower.

>"I always figured that I'd revisit the series when they issued a complete series box set but since they apparently did it without the benefit of more space saving packaging I may have to start looking into it. It's a shame the series doesn't air on TV."

USA and SciFi both ran it for years... but that was years ago. They are getting ready to begin releasing the series on BluRay -- first season is a few months out, I understand -- and I hope the packaging will be space-saving. We'll see.

First-season HL is also all on Hulu now, I understand.

Kalas, I remember him. He was the opera singer who had his throat slashed in a fight with Ducan and it permanently damaged his vocal chords. It's all coming back to me. :)

Oh yeah. I remember reading that somewhere but I never bothered to check it out. I think that with the marathon my interested has been sufficiently renewed so I think I'll take a looksy.
