Among the powerful episodes are:
-"The Gathering," the series premiere, featuring "Highlander" film star Christopher Lambert reprising his role as Connor MacLeod in his only appearance in the show;
-"Comes a Horseman" and "Revelation 6:8," the powerful two-part story dealing with the Four Horsemen, which features powerful performances by Adrian Paul as Duncan MacLeod and Peter Wingfield as Methos;
-"Homeland," the amazing episode where Duncan returns to Scotland for the first time in 200 years;
-"Deliverance," the second-half of the "Dark Quickening" story, where Duncan must find a way to defeat the evil within him, and;
-"To Be" and "Not to Be," the two episodes that brought the series to its exciting, emotional conclusion!
The DVD set also comes with great extras that take a behind-the-scenes look at the shows great moments, as well as looks at the fans and the upcoming "Highlander" Video Game from Eidos! Whether you're a fan of the series, or someone new to the show, then this DVD set is for you! It is truly the best of the best!
Program/DVD Set Grade: A+
The bonus features here were okay, though several suffered from poor audio mixing and were hard to hear.
All in all, its a good, lower cost way for fans to get some of the best episodes, but a true fan will want to buy the season sets to be able to view them in proper order.
The 15 episodes are great, and the bonus material is NEW, and not included in any other set.
However, therein lies my only caveat... there is a sticker on the back of the box I own that says "15 Episodes and Over Three Hours of Original Material Including..." and then lists the five documentaries. I clocked them all (contained on the sixth disc) and they come to a total of roughly 115 minutes. That's 1 hour 55 minutes. So what happened to the missing hour and then some? Sounds like they planned another doco and didn't include it. Oh well. Modern viewers may chuckle a bit at hype for that flop known as "The Source" and shed a tear for the cancelled "Highlander: the Video Game" that was showing promise.
Just let that be a warning to anyone who expected more from this set than they got!
The Episodes are out of order, but clearly labeled on the packaging (cardboard fold out accordion style, similar to the Extended Editions of Lord of the Rings) as to which seasons they are from. Basically they took two from every season (though only one from season 3 and more from the later seasons to make the 15 count).
