Highlander the Series


Series Description
    


Highlander, the TV fantasy series aired in syndication only for 60 minutes per episode. It was based on 1986 and 1991 Highlander movies. It starred Adrian Paul as Duncan McLeod, an immortal. The immortals could only be killed by decapitation! If one immortal slayed another, they gained the power of the fallen immortal. Duncan McLeod would have prefered to live a normal life (albeit a long one) but other power hungry immortals were constantly seeking him out in order to slay him for his power.

Highlander Series Trivia

Elizabeth Gracen (Amanda) claimed she had a one-night affair in 1983 will the future President Bill Clinton!

Until their first "death", an immortal is identical to a mortal except that they are sterile. They experience normal healing rates and no "BUZZ".

The original idea to develop the Higlanders TV series came from a screenplay that Gregory Widen wrote as a screen-writing course project at UCLA.

Apparently, immortals don't revive from a "death" until the cause of their death is removed. Example: Nefertiri in episode #40, "Pharoah's Daughter", was 'dead' approximately 2000 years because there wasn't any air in her sarcophagus.

In the Highlander series episode titled, "Avenging Angel", it appears that the writers goofed up by staging a fight between immortals on holy ground. Scenes from this fight are actually seen in the opening credits of future episodes as the narrator speaks about holy ground. Actually, the scene was shot at a museum containing religious artifacts from the crusades.

The duel between Connor and Bassett took place on Boston Common in 1783. Connor had called Bassett's wife a "bloated wart hog".

The castle where Connor MacLeod lived (in the first movie) is the same castle used for the interior shots for Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Each U.S. series episode of Highlander is four minutes shorter than the European version because of the longer commercial time allowed in the U.S. market.


Highlander Theme Song

Title: "Princes of the Universe"

By: "Queen"

Here we are
We're the princes of the universe.

Here we belong, fighting for survival.
We've got to be the rulers of your world.

I am immortal, I have inside me blood of kings.
I have no rival, no man can be my equal.
Take me to the future of your world.
