When Highlander (1992-1998) was good, it was exceptional. The tango on the Eiffel Tower. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The Byron-Shelley house party. Okay, pretty much every episode with Methos, Fitz and Amanda. It took the writers and producers awhile to find their niche, but they finally did. Highlander was best when it was about the lifestyles and personalities of the immortals. What sort of person has the endurance for immortality? Who really wants to live forever?

Even though I love the series (just watching Adrian Paul with a sword is practically a religious experience), I'm the first to admit that the quality varied a great deal and the first two seasons had its share of stinkers. My favorite character wasn't even introduced until late in season three. If you're new to Highlander and want to skip the worst, you could always read my earlier reviews before watching.

The series will always be a favorite of mine. The movies? Not so much, although I'm mildly fond of the first one as well as Endgame. Feel free to skip them all. Especially the second movie. It's nearly as bad as Plan 9 from Outer Space. In fact, it practically *is* Plan 9 from Outer Space.
