5.0 out of 5 stars I Like this Series!!! July 28, 2006
Format:DVD
In spite of all the negative reviews, I LIKE THIS SERIES!!! Elizabeth Gracen is pert, sassy, sexy and Tres Chic! Paul Johansson is a hunky, sexy, gorgeous man! Yes, the series is inconsistent, with many starts in many directions, but to me that adds to the fun and variety. The stories are interesting and fun, and the humour gives the show a whole new dimension. I am disappointed that the whole interview bonus seems to focus on the negative. Only one of the producers came out and said that good things were done and the series did merit a second season. I agree that the final episode left us with hope for many new adventures for our now immortal "couple" as they proceed into the future together. This series was really much better than a lot of people wanted it to be, and it deserves a lot more attention than it got. Kudos to Elizabeth and Paul!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ouch! August 10, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Reality fans will love this one - except fans of the Highlander franchise tend to prefer fantasy over reality, so the final verdict is a tad mixed. Included on each of the eight discs is a ten minute segment of a featurette entitled "Highlander Confidential: The Unraveling of a Series". Unlike most commentary, where behind-the-scenes conflicts are downplayed or quietly ignored, these interviews are basically a sounding board for the creative forces behind this series to boldly complain about "what went wrong". Blame is abundant and, shotgun-like, hits everyone. The producers blame the actors, the directors and writers blame the producers, the actors, with well-performed hubris, blame themselves...and others. So much vitriol is spewed that it could leave a bitter taste for those who enjoyed the series. Among the reasons given for the series failure are Elizabeth Gracen's hair color, her "crazy" boyfriend at the time and the hugely unfortunate timing of the Clinton investigations. Only David Abramowitz (head writer, listed here as "Creative Consultant"), in my mind, seems to come close to the truth of the matter. He correctly states that "spin-offs rarely succeed". He is correct. I would go further and say that the original series with Adrian Paul had begun to decline in the fifth season and hit the skids in the sixth, so launching a spin-off was probably unwise to begin with. Given that this show was in syndication, the Panzer-Davis production team had to know that the declining ratings would result in poor timeslots (in my market, one had to search the post-midnight hours to find airings for it).

5.0 out of 5 stars Highlander - The Raven! I liked the DVD. July 5, 2005
By Hathor
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Of course I loved the series when it first aired so it's no surprised I loved the DVD too.

I really enjoy the lead character, Amanda! She is beautiful, elegant, dangerous, and more than a little eccentric!

I also liked the variation on the Highlander theme, of using an immortal female as the lead. And I thought she looked great during the sword fighting. ( I just wished there was a little more of that)

I enjoyed the whole romance thing they've added with Nick Wolf, a mortal man. But then I'm a sucker for romance.

I totally disagree with the above review that claims there was no chemistry between the leads. I felt and saw a connection on screen - which I guess means they were professional actors in spite of the fact they didn't get along off camera.

And lets remember extreme dislike creates heat too.

I thought the interviews were a total hoot! I absolutely loved them!

You listen with your jaw on the floor, you really do!

I couldn't believe how honest everyone was about how bad the atomsphere was on the set. I don't think I've ever heard anything quite like it!

The interveiws made this worth the purchase price for me!

But I loved the series and I really wish they could have had at least one season more...

There IS a big reveal in the last episode and I would have loved to see what a new season would bring to the characters Amanda and Nick.

But the actors would have killed each other if it had!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unusual for a DVD set: too much information August 28, 2005
By Tony
Format:DVD
I bought this set recently. The first thing on the Disc One menu isn't the first episode. It's a behind the scenes series of interviews, which are titled, "Highlander: The Raven The Unraveling of a Show".

When I watched the show during its orginial broadcast run in 1998, I thought it was a funny, action-oriented series with three or four well developed characters. When the show was cancelled at the end of its first season, I figured some network suit had decided that another "Friends" like sitcom or one more knockoff of the home-video shows that depict stupid human tricks would get higher ratings and/or cost less to make.

I didn't know how much Hollywood BS had gone on. How Elizabeth Gracen and Paul Johansson despised each other. How the creative team had had no idea where to take the show after the initial episodes. How the money dried up in mid-season.

I have watched the first five DVDs, and there has to be about an hour of the interviews I mentioned. I suppose a better title for these vignettes would be "Elizabeth Gracen and her enablers". She went well out of her way to give Johansson a hard way to go, even demanding of the show's brass that one script's ending be changed. This ending did not directly involve Amanda's character, but did involve Nick's.

Personally, I find the conversations on these discs surprising. What is depicted is pretty much How Not to Make a Succesful Show. "The Raven" suffered as a result, and something that could have been very good was cut short after 22 only episodes.

Incidentally, the episodes themselves are pretty good. Well written, and for the most part well acted. Lucy and Bert Myers are excellent supporting chracters in what is pretty much a cop show.

The high rating is more for the seller and not the quality of the show. The package was perfect as promised. The show, though not great, has a camp factor to it.
