5.0 out of 5 stars Swashbuckling Adventures Through Time!!! December 8, 2002
By Mr. JKW
Format:DVD
Highlander Season One, a 9-disc DVD Collection, collects the entire 22-episode first season (1992-1993) of the syndicated action series based on the cult-favorite film.
THE STORY
"Highlander" tells the tale of a race of "Immortals" who battle one another throughout history for "the Prize." The "Immortals" game is simple -- take the heads of all other Immortals and receive ultimate knowledge and power. In the end -- there can be only one.
In 1986, the first Highlander the film, starring Christopher Lambert as Connor McLeod hit theatres. In 1992, Highlander: The Series debuted in syndication to tell the Highlander's tale anew. The series followed the adventures of a new Highlander, Duncan McLeod (Adrian Paul), a kinsman of Lambert's Connor from the original movies.
THE DVDS:
Here are the contents of each DVD.
Disc 1
Episode 1: The Gathering - Connor McLeod returns to "pass the torch" to kinsman Duncan McLeod as he helps Duncan prepare for a deadly Immortal who's set sites on Duncan's head.
Episode 2: Family Tree - Richie searches out for his long lost father and runs afoul of a con man and the mob enforcer sent to collect from him. Can McLeod save him in time?
Episode 3: The Road Not Taken - When Richie's friend dies from an apparent drug O.D., McLeod suspects an old Immortal friend of his.
Disc 2
Episode 4: Innocent Man - McLeod searches out an Immortal who took the head of a good friend.
Episode 5: Free Fall - McLeod trains a "new" immortal woman. All is not as it seems though.
Episode 6: Bad Day in Building "A" - Highlander goes Die Hard as McLeod takes on a bunch of criminals who have taken a courthouse hostage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally Highlander DVDs. December 10, 2002
Format:DVD
This is an amazing set. All 22 episodes with a short interview about the making of the episode and a blooper reel. It was released originally through the Highlander website this time last year for Christmas (Dec 01) but the package was really horrid. All the disks had their own box making the entire set an most a foot wide, just a touch smaller than the original VHS box set. Thank goodness they listened to our complaints 'cause this set looks so much better and at a much better price.
This set has all the episodes at the entire release of 48 minutes which is the way they were released for TV in Canada and overseas. Those of us here in the states can finally see the entire episode the way it was released since we lost about 4 minutes for the TV formatting. Also there is a DVD with the original shooting scripts for this season. For those of us who just want to watch the Quickenings, there's a button on the menu of each episode that takes you right to the start of the scene. Little things that makes this set nice.
Now if we can only get the Highlander producers to release the rest of the series. We're ready for season two!

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! November 12, 2002
Format:DVD
I have been waiting for this series to be put on dvd for quite a while. Oh sure, if you were willing to spend more than twice the money you could've bought season one from the Highlander website (which a friend of mine did), but I held out hope that eventually a more affordable version would come out for purchase in stores. Not only is this set less expensive, it's also better designed. Graphically the box art is much smarter looking and the box itself with it's fold out cases within a case is a space saver on my dvd shelf.
Now on to the episodes...It's interesting in the beginning of the series to see how the Highlander movie continuity is incorporated into the TV show. It's not a totally seamless transition, you almost get the feeling that the producers weren't sure themselves how they were going to handle it. As the season progresses however, Duncan MacLeod and the series begin to find their own voices. I would highly recommend this set to existing fans of the series as well as people who might have never even heard of Highlander, there seems to be something appealing in it for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Don't lose your head" June 24, 2005
Format:DVD
I love this series and have watched most episodes, but it is great to be able to go back and see them again, in order. Most people know the basics that serve as foundation for the story; Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul) is a four-hundred-year-old immortal who can only die if someone cuts his head. The problem is that there are other immortals out there, and when they kill one of their own they absorb his power. In the end, when the time of the Gathering arrives, there can only be one; and this moment is getting closer and closer. Since the goal is to cut their opponent's head, the fights are mostly with swords, and the choreography used in these scenes is believable and entertaining to watch.

In order to give this series continuity with the movies that serve as the basis, there is a brief appearance by Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod, who is Duncan's "cousin" and mentor. From that moment on, the series stands on its own, and besides Duncan, the main characters are Tessa (Alexandra Vandernoot), his mortal girlfriend who sells antiques, and Richie (Stan Kirsch), a kid who loves to get in trouble with the law.

The series has a good continuity, but most chapters stand pretty well on their own. Of course my recommendation is that you watch them in order, so you can maximize your enjoyment and understanding of what is going on. Especially since one of the aspects I enjoyed most was to learn the rules that govern the lives of the immortals. These rules are revealed little by little and every time we come across a new one, we find ourselves thinking about past episodes and understanding things better.

The gathering would have worked, except that the company didn't know that they were going to go beyond a single season, once they had the green light (I believe it was for a five season run) then the underlying gathering story was dropped. The series was supposed to run on an arc building to the... Read More
