Highlander the TV show doesn't suck.

I'm sure everyone has seen the Highlander movie from the 80's. TNN is running re-runs of the old tv show (11pm) and it isn't too bad. I wasn't a fan of the movie but I'm really enjoying the show. They just started running the TV show so if you haven't seen it you won't be that far behind.

I used to watch that show when it was on it''s original run. You''re right, it really isn''t to bad. It got kind of tired eventually though, but even then it still had it''s moments. They''ve got several seasons on video/DVD too.

I was happy with the show as soon as Ritchie hit the road. GOD was he annoying.

SPOILER

And quite frankly, so was the French girlfriend who bites it in (I think) the first season. The feisty doctor was much more interesting. And Methos is a sexy sexy man. Yummy.

Can you tell I was a fan?

hehe. Tessa is the French chicks name and she is annoying. The chick Amanda (I think that''s her name), who is the theif is really cool.

I hated that show when it first came out but then somhow it whent and got good when I wasn''t paying attention and all of a sundden there it was with all this progressive story and good writing, I was hooked. Totaly bumed when it ended and they did that last crapy movie. When they they say there can only be one what they mean is there should have only been one movie .

And Methos is a sexy sexy man. Yummy.

But not as sexy as Certis, eh? Eh?

Uh, sure. I mean, of course not! Cuz of, y''know, the love.

Yeah.

I figure, if he gets to post his fantasies on the front page, I can air a few of mine in the forums, at least.

The chick Amanda (I think that''s her name), who is the theif is really cool.

Ulairi, were you aware she got her own spin-off series?

Yeah the writing for that spin off was really... um unfortunate.

I just thought it got kind of ridiculous as to how many of these immortals there were. I mean they are supposed to be rare, but he encounters new ones every blood episode (and usually ends up killing them).

For a species that is sterile and can''t reproduce, the immortals sure are numerous.

Well accept new ones come along and are born into the world, at least in the TV mythos. So they are not really depopulating themselvs... one theory was that when the competition for the prize began it had been a very long time since any new ones had come and all the others had been dead but there is a split time line between the first movie, the wretched following movies and the TV series.

the wretched following movies

Highlander 2: ""Highlanders are actually space aliens!""
Me: "".....What?!""

I liked the Donnie Yen fight scene in Highlander: End Game, but did anyone else notice that the chase at the end actually had like a 30 second repeated clip of one of the dudes jumping over some pipes? Lame!
