Why, the best thing since the first movie (disregard any flames about the sequels).

I hope this thread doesn't die the death of my So Close thread (in Foreign).

I'm a bit confused (might be the wine) but I saw "Highlander" and got all excited. What's this thread about exactly?

I think hes talking about the series. I have to say that compared even to the first movie the series had better characters and better acting. The plots got kinda thin but I found it to be an enjoyable show-MS

I hear the death rattle. It's SO CLOSE.

Didn't they tie things up by having the TV highlander meet the Movie highlander in the last movie? Did the first highlander's missus get raped by that big bad warrior? How did Sean Connery in medieval times get a katanasword that looks like it was made around 1600 in Japan?

I remember enjoying that last movie, with the classic Highlander and the TV Highlander. It has been awhile, I have forgetten much. But not as much as the first. You alway remember your first!

The only line editted from Apocalypse Now Redux, "The puns, the puns."

Anyway, I was talking about the tv series. And, yep, I fall under the 'Star Wars ep 4 is the ONLY Star Wars movie, Highlander 1 is the ONLY Highlander movie, and Behind The Green Door is the ONLY Green Door movie" camp.

What can I say? I'm a love terrorist. Ashcroft wants me in ways no man can understand. Shall I say, he's frustrated he can't, er, penetrate my defenses? Now, give me one of Charlie's Angels (the original show) and I might get worried.

I enjoyed the show quite a lot, but always found myself wanting to slap Richie. I don't know why but that boy just irked me.

The highlander news group on usenet was the most active group on there for a very long time. If you want some info I suggest digging up the archives via google groups. There's a whole following of people who have every single sword from the series.

Ritchie is extremely annoying. Highlander the series seems dated, too dramatic, and too big for it's budget. The fight scenes were great. Adrian Paul should have made a few Highlander movies and increased the action.
