  • Your Favourite Overlooked Bit from the Series?

    Any of you got a bit from the series that you really love but that no-one else ever seems to even mention? I've got a fair few.

    For example, in "Not To Be" I really love the scene where Joe arrives home to find Richie there threatening to shoot him. I think it has some great dialogue, including one of my favourite lines of the entire Highlander franchise. It's when Joe says, "you can live forever... or you can kill forever. It's up to you." I always found that to be really powerful. I just wish it had been spoken in Highlander reality and not some "what if " scenario.

    I always come back to Duncan's fairy tale to the little girl in "Bad Day in Building A" (I think that's the one?). Whether consciously or not, it seemed like he laid out the whole Immortal mythology right there.

    I also wanted to see in a later season Kiem Sun come back, making good on his plan to make an army of super soldiers with the serum he was developing in season 1.

      I've heard other fans praise that "fairy tale" in "Bad Day in Building A." For some reason, I'd always disliked it. Really, seen it as the worst thing in a very bad episode! Can't explain why.

    I loved the dialog between Amanda and Mac while they were watching Joe play and sing. Mac's comment, "he knows me better than I know myself and I know hardly anything about him," was thought provoking.

      I always liked the way Randi MacFarland thought Duncan was an undercover federal agent. When he replied that he and his friends were just a bunch of history buffs it made me wonder if she ever tried to dig deeper into Duncan or Grayson's backgrounds. Did Grayson send someone after her or did the Watchers recruit her? Was Duncan allowing her to be around so much because she was a pre-immortal just like Richie and Claudia? I really liked her character and wished they had brought her back in a future season.

        Love the pre-immortal theory! I never much liked Randi, but now I'm intrigued!

      There were definitely unanswered questions surrounding her. She was a cool character. (And definitely crushing on Mac....lol)

        I feel that, because Freefall is such a loved episode, the pretty strongly implied as fact that pre-immortals eventually feel compelled to commit suicide gets overlooked.

          Not just implied. Duncan mentioned that as a possibility to why Felicia jumped off of the building during his initial conversation with her.

          That's what I call strongly implied.

        I'd never caught that, but it makes sense. A pull towards a "violent" (self) end if one already hasn't already happened while they're still in their prime... I like it.

          lol.....having watched the series over 200 times (yes....I said it....lol) you tend to catch little things like that.

        I was watching Little Tin God today and I love the scene when Joe tells Mac about his old watcher Rodney McFergus....
        I can't help but imagine the two of them having all these conversations about the various Watchers Mac has encountered through the centuries without realizing who/what they were.
